The study of scripture is at the heart of our academic program.
While collegiate general education is offered, as is an array of instrucion in the practical skills of Christian ministry, all programs require a major in Biblical Studies.
Within the Boston Baptist College family there is complete unity in the confession of the Bible as God's inerrant Word and the challenge to understand truth in all disciplines through the context of the divine revelation.

The Bachelor of Biblical Studies degree is a four year program, and every student is a Biblical Studies major. Regardless of future goals, a thorough understanding of the Word of God is vital. Dynamic courses include Old and New Testament surveys, Interpretation of Scripture, and Jesus and Christianity Through the Ages. These and many other courses provided the foundation in Biblical truth that equips Boston students to understand and impact their world for the cause of Christ. Each Biblical Studies major chooses a minor that best suits his or her ministry goals.
This minor is designed to identify the Biblical mandate for counseling within the context of the local church and to affirm the sufficiency of Scripture to give solutions for man's problems. Both secular and integrated counseling are examined and contrasted to the Biblical model of change. Students are encouraged to examine their own hearts and lives through the lens of Scripture.
The minor in Business is ideal for students who want a general understanding of the concepts of management and business strategies. The program is particularly structured for entrepreneurial approaches in the global marketplace, and embraces the paradigm of effective business as a "ministry" with goals far beyond just merely turning a profit.
This minor deals with a variety of subject areas that are pertinent to general church ministries. Students are free to take ministry skills courses that deal with their particular interests relative to Christian service. This allows for greater flexibility as well as exposure to different styles and techniques of both traditional and modern approaches.

“Music is the universal language of mankind” (Longfellow). To perform, lead, and focus the hearts of others on God through the use of music is a ministry which can be extremely fulfilling. At Boston Baptist College we recognize the importance of this ministry. The courses in this study will equip you to not only understand music theory and the technical aspects of music but it will teach you the skills needed to transform notes into worship. This can be a life-transforming minor.

Classroom experience will be combined with a number of opportunities to interact on a deep level with teenagers.
