The 2020 Degree Plan will be Discontinued after Summer 2023

Current students will have 5 years from their original enrollment date to complete their 2017/2020 degree plans.

However, as of Fall 2023, a new course plan will be implemented for all new students.

​Please contact our office for details.

Earn your associate's or bachelor's degree

The 2020 Degree Plan, as listed below, is a hybrid program of Bible and spiritual development courses and 30 credits of general education courses as required for an accredited degree. In addition to learning about theology and ministry in classes, the Christian Ministry Practicum each semester enables students to have hands-on ministerial experience working in their local church and community.

Bible and spiritual development courses are done in a classroom setting in the ExCeLL classroom at the students' church. However, all general education (GE) courses are available online and are taken separately from ExCeLL on an individual basis. They can be taken concurrently with ExCeLL or separately on their own.

30 GE credits are required. Of these, these core GE classes are required: 6 credits of English (2 classes), 3 credits of math, 3 credits of science, and 3 credits of a speech class. The remaining GE classes can be selected based on availability and individual interest, but we do offer suggestions on the schedule below. 

To register for online GE classes with Texas Bible College, please get in touch with TBC Online. Students can also transfer GE academic credit from other colleges and universities to Texas Bible College. If you would like to transfer credit to us, please have your university send an official transcript to us.
