FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What degree programs do you offer?

General Questions

  • Why do I keep reading about Hebraic teaching and Hebraic perspective?

    • Studying Scripture in its Hebraic context not only brings fresh meaning and deeper understanding, but it also bridges the gap between the Old Testament (Tanakh), Yeshua and where we are today. 

  • Can I attend full-time in a degree program?

    • No. All GBM degree programs are offered on a  part-time basis. By definition, part-time status is when a student is enrolled for less than 9 credit hours in the fall or spring semesters, or 3 credit hours in a summer term.

  • What if I want to take one course?

    • Students may apply as special students for the purposes of taking one course. Any credit earned as a special student will be credited toward the degree if the student applies and is later accepted into a degree program. 

  • How long will it take to complete a basic degree program?

    • Part-time students may complete their degree in as few as one year (Associate degree); three (3) years  for Bachelors and four (4) years for Masters degrees.. A student’s program may be lengthened or shortened by a variety of factors, such as participation in internships or taking a reduced load or increased course load in any given semester.
