Bachelor of Theology (ThB)
(129 SEMESTER UNITS)
The following courses are required for completion of the BACHELOR OF THEOLOGY PROGRAM. GSST policy states that a student must complete a minimum of one year (30 Semester Units) with GSST in order to graduate with a GSST Bachelor of Theology degree.
The cost of GSST Undergraduate programs are some of the lowest in the nation. For detailed tuition payment plans.
Every student who enrolls in GSST is required to take three courses first before taking any others. These are the Orientation course (CC100/CC500/CC900) , a Bible-text course in the Epistle of Colossians (NT460B/NT560B/NT960B), and the Research Methods course (RE111/RE511/RE911). All three of these courses count toward the units earned for the degree. Upon successful completion of these courses, students may then complete the courses in their respective degree programs. An exception may be made and the Research Methods course waived if the student can demonstrate that he or she took an equivalent course in another college or university program. However, our Research Methods course is tailored specifically to GSST requirements and presents the MLA method of documenting sources. It may be wise to take it anyway, or at least purchase and read the e-text before moving into the rest of the degree program. All students need to know and use the MLA system for documenting their sources in GSST assignments and formal papers. Students need not repeat either of these three courses if they have completed them already and are advancing into another degree program at GSST. However, if a student drops out of GSST or fails to submit assignments over a period of six months or more, he or she may be required to take the Orientation Course again when resuming studies with GSST.
Courses completed by those once enrolled in the Associate of Biblical Studies Degree program do not have to be completed again. Courses may be completed in any sequence deemed approved through communication between the student and the Mentor.
