Program Requirements


I. Christian Studies - 30 Credits


II. General Education - 39 Credits


IV. 300-400 Level Electives - 16 Credits


Students should work closely with an advisor to determine the electives best suited to their area of medical interest. Electives could include:  NUR 312 NUR 315 PSY 336 SCI 348 SCI 350 SCI 359 , SCI 379 SCI 415 SCI 437  or SCI 441 .  

At least 30% of this degree, or a minimum of 38 credits, must be at the upper (300-400) level. If you choose to take lower-level Christian Studies core classes (CHM 201 or CHM 210), then you must take enough upper-level general electives to meet this requirement.

Total - 125 Credits


 1 Select humanities electives from COM, ENG, ESL, FAR, HIS, HUM, LAN, MUS, PHI, or PRC.

2 Select social science electives from ANT, CSJ, ECO, ESL, GEO, HIS, POL, PSY, or SOC.

4 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328  and COM 446  also qualify as fine arts electives. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)

* Some courses from the Christian Studies Core and Major Core can be used to fulfill requirements in the General Education Core. By doing that the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 125 credits is reached.
