Florida College Adds New Degree Programs

July 13, 2012

Florida College continues to develop its list of degree programs, adding majors and areas of concentration in History, Communication and Biblical Studies. The College has steadily expanded over the years in order to accommodate the academic needs of students who seek academic excellence in a Christ-centered environment.

The most recent major to be added is the Bachelor of Arts in History, which gives students the opportunity to study the political, cultural, intellectual and religious aspects of history. The program allows for students to design a course of study that includes a minor based on their personal interests, and offers American Civilization as an alternate area of concentration. For more information about a major in history, contact Dr. Brian Crispell, Department Chair.

The Communication program launched in the fall of 2011 and is undergoing its first phase of expansion. The most recent course track, Corporate and Organizational Communication, begins this upcoming fall and will combine communication and business components to accommodate students interested in communication-oriented jobs in the business field. For more information about these programs in communication, contact Dr. Kenny Embry, Department Chair.

The Biblical Studies department now offers majors in New Testament (BA) and Biblical Education (BS) to accompany their longstanding Biblical Studies degree. The bachelor’s in New Testament focuses on the literary and historical background of the New Testament and includes a minimum two-year study of New Testament Greek. The bachelor’s in Biblical Education is designed for those interested in incorporating their biblical knowledge with teaching skills. For more information about these programs in Biblical Studies, contact Dr. Dan Petty, Department Chair.

Sample course tracks for the new majors will posted soon!
