Why study general studies at Oak Hills?

The Associate in Arts degree will provide you with a Bible-centered, general course of study preparing you for further undergraduate education at public and private 4-year colleges and universities. The degree is designed to maximize the number of credits which would transfer to other schools, where students might complete programs not offered at Oak Hills.

Students in this program will have a strong foundation in biblical studies and interpretation. Another important characteristic of the program is that all general education courses (such as science, history, English, mathematics and philosophy) are taught from a distinctly Christian worldview, with the expectation that these courses will contribute to students’ growth in faith.

66 credits required

  • General Education (40 credits)
  • Biblical Studies (16 credits)
  • Christian Ministry (8 credits)
  • Free Electives (2 credits)
