LA MIRADA, CALIF. — Starting Fall 2023, Talbot School of Theology at Biola University will debut a fully online certificate in Biblical and Theological Studies, taught completely in Spanish. For women and men seeking foundational theological education, Biola University offers students a fully immersed Spanish program experience: Talbot en Español.

Dr. Dominick Hernández, Director of Talbot en Español, is optimistic about the program.

“Students can expect the highest quality, biblical and theological education facilitated by Spanish-speaking professors who are committed to the church and living out historical Christian doctrine in an array of contemporary societies,” said Hernández.

Offered entirely online, students will be able to dive into the Old and New Testament, learn how to interpret and study the Scriptures, and examine the central doctrines of the Christian faith — all at the affordable price of only $315 per course. Courses in the certificate program are part of the Talbot School of Theology graduate degree programs, meaning the caliber of the curriculum mirrors that which is offered in all other Talbot programs.

The cost- and time-efficient Talbot en Español certificate offers a foundational theological education that is suitable for a wide range of students — including lay church leaders, church elders and ministers without formal training.

“Students can be in a space where they will engage with peers and faculty members with whom they will share a strong sense of affinity,” said Hernández. “Students and faculty from all over the Spanish-speaking world will come together in Talbot en Español to learn from each other and increase their kingdom impact by way of their biblical and theological education.”

Enrollment is now open for the Fall 2023 semester with the deadline being Aug. 1. To learn more and apply to the program, please visit the Talbot en Español webpage.
