Undergraduate Programs

The undergraduate academic curriculum at New Life Theological Seminary is divided into two levels:

  1. Associate of Arts Program
  2. Bachelor of Arts Program

Additionally, the curriculum is divided into four academic divisions sometimes called departments:

  1. Biblical Studies - Languages, Old Testament, New Testament and Theology.
  2. General Studies - Core Academic studies in English, Mathematics, Social Sciences, Church History and Humanities.
  3. Pastoral Studies - Pastoral Ministries
  4. Urban Studies - Counseling, Christian Education, Church Planting, Cross-Cultural Studies, Youth and Music.

These four educational departments are unique and special in their individual task but yet are unified and committed in purpose as a body to fulfill the Great Commission.
