Yes, I’m using my blog for promoting where I teach. Sue me.
For those who haven’t read my “About” page (so, everyone), I am Assistant Professor of Christian Studies at CBU, but I’m also the Lead Faculty for Christian Ministries in the Online and Professional Studies Division. This means that I head up the Christian Studies program on the OPS side of the school, managing everything from curriculum revision to scheduling.
Our traditional Christian Studies program is phenomenal. Chris Morgan, the Dean of the School of Christian Ministries on main campus, is an outstanding leader and scholar and the faculty are top notch. I couldn’t recommend that program more highly for those who are seeking a traditional, four year, day time program.
But for working adults who need to take classes at night or online, we have a top notch Christian Ministries program in OPS as well. Our curriculum is balanced between Bible (4 courses), theology (3 courses), history (2 courses), philosophy (2 courses), and practical ministry (4 courses). Our faculty is outstanding – we’ve got a good mix of scholarship and practical experience here, something that is invaluable in a Christian Ministries degree. Each course is 8 weeks long, so you can finish the major in 16 months if you take two courses per 8 week session. And our courses are rigorous – we expect the best from our students. Further, our courses are balanced between reading the best books, writing for analysis and synthesis, and applying knowledge.
Right now for fall we have 2 courses available fully only (Baptist History in the first session, New Testament II in the second), but beginning in the Spring we’ll have the entire curriculum available online.
So, if you or someone you know is interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministries and can’t do so in a traditional day time program, I don’t think there’s any better place to come or to send someone than here.
But I’m biased.
