Curricular Areas & Goals

  • Overview

    The curriculum of Ozark Christian College includes courses in three areas: General Education, Biblical Education, and Professional Education.

  • General Education (GE)

    The General Education (GE) curriculum contributes to the learning goal by equipping students with the foundational skills, knowledge, and disposition necessary to be productive, well-informed, and ethical members of society. More specifically, our general education curriculum both (a) prepares students for the more specialized learning of our biblical and professional curriculum, and (b) provides the skills necessary to apply this learning to the settings and problems they will engage in the world we are sending them out to serve.

  • Biblical Education (BE)

    The Biblical Education (BE) curriculum contributes to the learning goal by equipping students to know and affirm the content of the Bible and interpret it to discern the author’s intended meaning. It will also contribute to the spiritual formation of students so that they can effectively serve in the church and the world. This biblical foundation will guide students in forming a Christian worldview and philosophy of ministry to be developed in the general and professional curricula.

  • Professional Education (PE)

    The Professional Education (PE) curriculum contributes to the learning goal by preparing students with practical instruction for effective ministry inside the church vocationally or in the larger marketplace. Through classroom instruction and field experience, as well as an emphasis on Christian service, students will be equipped with a framework that is designed to shape their motives, strategies, applications, and practices of various ministry skills.
