The Biblical and Systematic Theology Department is designed to provide a thorough grasp of the major doctrines of Christianity and to integrate these, as far as possible, into a harmonious system. The Bible is held as the source of all doctrine and the ultimate criterion for all theological formulation. Attention is given to the organic growth of Christian doctrine in the Old and New Testaments, as well as in the church through the ages since Pentecost. Students are also introduced to biblical perspectives on contemporary theological and ethical issues.
The Athletic Training department is committed to equipping students with excellence in providing athletic training to athletes and other sports-minded individuals. The need for competent knowledgeable and certified trainers to serve in hospitals, sports clinics, corporate organizations and for professional teams has never been greater. Our program is available with two options: a dual degree that allows students to take graduate coursework toward the MA/AT while completing their BA in Exercise Science with a Pre-Athletic Training Emphasis or a program for students applying to the MA/AT with an appropriate bachelor’s degree from another university.
