The Internet Bible College is pleased to offer the The Bachelors Completion Program (Integrated Studies) from Vision International University, San Diego, California, USA.

The Bachelors Completion Program (Integrated Studies) is designed to provide the student with a broad understanding of vocational Christian Ministry in the context of the local church. The program incorporates courses from the core and from the emphasis areas. Students who need additional credit hours to meet the degree program requirements may select courses from the emphasis areas of the Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry program or from General Education courses.

The Bachelor of Ministry (B.Min.) degree completion program is designed to prepare men and women to serve in Christian Ministry. It includes systematic study, wide reading and practical ministry education. The Bachelor of Ministry degree is a vocational, pre-professional degree, designed to transition the student into graduate-level theological education. The Bachelor of Ministry program consists of 120 credit hours, 30 of which must be from Vision International University. The student must complete the five core courses and select the remainder from the ministry specialization courses listed below. As a vocational, pre-professional degree, the program does not require a minimum number of General Education credits, differentiating it from the Bachelor of Arts degree.
