Overview

Designed primarily for those called to pastoral ministry or church planting, the BAT program combines theological knowledge with practical ability. Students learn biblical Greek and Hebrew. 

Students also complete a two-year internship in a local church, gaining familiarity with 80+ areas of ministry—everything from preaching to media technology, from helping with funerals to discipling unbelievers.

Why study Applied Theology at California Baptist University?

  • One of the strengths of the BAT program is its dual emphasis on theological knowledge with practical training. 
  • We are convinced that theological knowledge should be applied through the local church. BAT classes will be taken together in a small cohort-type class environment. The classes progress from year one through year four in order.
