Biblical Studies (Online Degree)

At Ozark Christian College in Joplin, Missouri, we created the Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies degree with the adult student in mind. This degree has a strong biblical emphasis and a variety of Bible and professional education courses. Adult students want an affordable, relational, and academically rigorous degree like Ozark offers, but they can't leave their homes, jobs, or churches to finish their degree. Ozark's online degree brings Ozark to you: just like our on-campus degrees, this online degree is affordable, relational, and academically rigorous.
