Maranatha Bible College offers two Biblical Studies' degrees through its affiliation with Calvary Chapel Bible College: The Associate of Applied Science in Biblical Studies (A.A.S.B.S.), and the Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies (B.A.B.S.).
Associate of Applied Science in Biblical Studies (A.A.S.B.S.)
The A.A.S.B.S. requires 72 semester credits and is composed primarily of eight Bible Core Classes (each representing a section of the Bible), foundational courses in Theology, Bible Survey courses, verse-by-verse studies of Bible books, one English Composition course and Practical Christian Ministry. Various Elective courses are also available. No prior college education courses are required for this program, only a high school diploma or its equivalent.
Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies (B.A.B.S.)
The B.A.B.S. requires 132 semester credits and all the requirements of the A.A.S.B.S.. Of the 132 credits required, a minimum of 36 must be earned in general studies courses completed separately and transferred to CCBC from a DOE recognized, accredited college.
*Individuals interested in pursuing either of these degrees must enroll as Credit Students by completing a New Student Application package, must take all the required courses at Maranatha Bible College or Calvary Chapel Bible College, and pass them with a grade of C- or better.
Through its affiliation with Calvary Chapel Bible College, Maranatha Bible College also offers an Audit Program for enrolled students who desire to grow spiritually without earning credits. Audit Students earn an “AU” if he/she attended a minimum of 75% of the class, otherwise they will receive a “UA” for “Unsuccessful Audit”. Audit Students must sign the sign in sheet at class. No college credit is given. There is no degree or certificate credit awarded for classes that are audited. An enrolled student may take classes for credit and audit, but only the classes taken for credit will apply toward a degree.
Maranatha Bible College exists for Christ & His Church and has chosen to make classes available to all who desire to grow in their relationship with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In that spirit, Maranatha Bible College offers a Guest Program for non-students.
Unlike Credit and Audit Students, Guests are not enrolled students at Maranatha Bible College. As such, Guests will not be regarded as "Credit" or "Audit" students. Guests are not required to complete assignments, tests, etc. nor do they have attendance requirements.
All Guests registering for courses at Maranatha Bible College agree to respect the academic environment provided for enrolled students at Maranatha Bible College. Further, it is our hope and prayer that Guests take full advantage of the accountability for learning which is present in academic environments such as at Maranatha Bible College.
