Certificate in Bible
The Certificate in Bible at Palm Beach Atlantic University invites non-degree seeking
students to deepen their understanding of Scripture and Christian thought through
academic study so that they might experience personal Christian growth and be better
equipped to teach the Bible to others.
The required curriculum is composed of four three-credit hour online courses offered
during eight-week subterms. . Online courses are delivered electronically through
the University's Learning Management System. Each online course is primarily, although
not entirely, asynchronous. Students view lessons and complete assignments at the
time of their choosing within stated course deadlines, which typically follow a weekly
rhythm. Online courses may also require students to attend several synchronous virtual
class sessions through designated technology. Generally for each 8-week online course,
students can expect to attend two or three of these live virtual meetings on designated
days and times, which are published in advance. Students commit to these days and
times during the course registration process.
