Louisiana Baptist University and Seminary is organized into five schools. Each school is administered by a dean who is a field expert. We offer five levels of academic study: the certificate, the associate degree, the bachelor’s degree, the master’s degree, and the doctoral degree.
We design each program to suggest a curriculum that we know to fill most academic needs. We also consider each student’s individual learning and ministry goals. This means that each dean prescribes a curriculum to guide you, but it also means that your advisor will design a custom program to meet your needs.
The certificate provides a foundational education in Bible and theology or in a ministry field. You will study college-level courses in a program designed for Christian laymen, and you can complete each course at your own pace from anywhere in the world.
One of Satan’s tools that he uses against Christians is their lack of Bible knowledge. The number one reason believers do not share their faith is the fear of being asked questions they cannot answer. The ten-course program will increase your capacity to study Scripture, to share the Gospel, and to minister within your church.
