It is suggested that an applicant have an undergraduate degree in psychology, sociology, social work, human services, family studies, nursing, or the equivalent. If the applicant does not have such a degree, a 3 credit course in “Life Span Development,” or its acceptable equivalent, is required. In addition, 6 credits of graduate Bible courses (one OT and one NT) are also required. If needed, these Bible courses may be taken in conjunction with the student’s regular program, as co-requisites. Applicants with an undergraduate degree in biblical studies may also be granted a waiver.
