  • Application Deadline
  • 36 months
Abbeville, LA, United States
As a Bible Translation major from Grace College and Seminary, you will prepare to go to the far reaches of the earth to bring the words of the Bible to those who haven’t heard them yet and give those people an opportunity to read the Bible's life-giving words in their language.


Translating the Bible into another language is an extremely challenging process that can take many years. Bible Translation students at Grace College and Seminary will take Greek and Hebrew courses as well as a variety of linguistics courses such as sociolinguistics, articulatory phonetics, and learner-directed second-language acquisition. Students will also have the chance to take classes in intercultural studies such as applied cultural anthropology, intercultural communication and world religions.

These courses, including a foundation of core classes and biblical studies, will prepare students for roles as Bible translators, linguists, literacy workers and language surveyors.
