Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The BA in Bible and Ministry (BMAC) is a Bible major tailored for the adult learner. The degree functions like a 2+2 program in that students earn their liberal arts and some elective credits from Harding or another institution, and the remaining credits in Bible may be earned through the College of Bible and Ministry. Because this degree is intended for the adult learner, students admitted to this program should be at least 24 years-old. Most of the courses in this degree program are offered online in an asynchronous format. However, some courses are scheduled for online synchronous options and some are offered in a hybrid format.

Code of Conduct

Students enrolled in the Center for Distance Education in Bible and Ministry must agree to abide by the Academic Integrity Policy as well as the Code of Conduct. It is expected that all students’ conduct is consistent with the values and principles of Harding.
