This degree will offer any prospective student the foundation of general education that is required for all BA degrees from a Christian perspective. Therefore, it is a great degree choice for students who have not yet decided in which career path God is leading them. It also offers students a biblical foundation and a choice of twelve electives that can be applied to any B.A. degree that is offered at The Baptist College of Florida. So, students who know what career path God is leading them in can potentially receive two degrees from The Baptist College of Florida in 4 years.
Students will learn reading, writing, communication, and critical thinking skills under the General Foundation courses. Students will also gain knowledge of biblical teachings from the Old and New Testaments as well as becoming more appreciative of Southern Baptist life and learning how to grow as a Christian. The twelve electives required for this degree can be any courses of special interest to the student.
