The biblical and theological studies minor teaches students to view all of God’s world through the perspective of God’s Word, the Bible. This biblical worldview involves understanding and applying the Bible as the foundation of the Christian faith, values and virtues — both historically and presently. Students who complete Biola's 30-credit general Bible requirements for undergraduates qualify to earn this minor, provided that they meet certain residency requirements detailed in the university catalog. This minor is displayed on the transcript if the student declares the minor on the graduation petition.
