A five-year BA/MDiv program is offered to exceptional Bible and Religion students in conjunction with Erskine Theological Seminary.
Students may apply for admission to the Five-Year BA/MDiv program prior to the end of the sophomore year at Erskine College. Applicants will major in Bible and Religion (Biblical and Theological Studies track) and must demonstrate solid academic performance (as evidenced by maintaining a GPA of at least 3.0/4) and aptitude for Christian ministry.
Students in the program must earn a grade of no lower than B in courses that will be used for Advanced Standing with Credit at the Seminary. It is expected that students in the program will complete at least 90 semester hours in three years of study at the College, and that all general education and major requirements will be completed at the end of three years. Students in the program shall take two courses in either Greek or Hebrew to fulfill the College’s “Communicating Across Cultures” formation requirement.
Because course scheduling is critical to completing the program in a timely manner, interested students should contact the chair of the Department of Bible, Religion, and Philosophy early in their time at Erskine.
