The BA in Biblical Studies at Eastern University situates the canonical texts of the Christian tradition within the context of the larger Christian story, while also equipping students to interpret these texts for themselves and for the benefit of the Christian church.


Students are familiarized with the social and historical setting of these texts, critical issues in their transmission, interpretation and application, and are given the tools to faithfully and creatively apply the message of these texts to contemporary contexts.

Students pursuing the BA in Biblical Studies have the option of electing a languages track that will give them the opportunity to incorporate Greek and Hebrew into the major.
