This degree program combines the diploma program goals and objectives with supplemental collateral reading to provide the student with a degree-level learning experience. Since INSTE does not offer a wide range of general education courses, the candidate for this program must transfer these courses from another college or university accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Those credits must include:

*Humanities and Arts 6-24 hours
Math and Natural Sciences 6-24 hours
Social and Behavioral Sciences 6-24 hours**
**INSTE determines the transferability of the courses. A minimum of 6 credit hours must be in each discipline. The total number of credit hours must add up to 36 semester hours. The student who successfully completes this program is granted the Bachelor of Arts in Bible and Theology.

See Courses Required for Graduation for a list of courses in this program.


The student will purchase the books assigned as collateral reading listed in the Degree Student’s Guide and fulfill the assignments for the INSTE courses in which he/she enrolls.
