Certificate and Degree Programs

 

All certificate and degree programs, including graduate degree programs, at Kidron Christian College and Seminary are individually designed for each student. This individual approach to degree planning allows the College and the student to design a program that both interests the student and provides for a sound academic foundation. This individual approach to degree planning also allows for changes during the course of study to overcome areas of weakness and accentuate areas of strength. The key to successful academic study is flexibility to allow for growth and change. This also helps the student stay aware of progress with full knowledge of those areas of weakness that need to be addressed.

 

In all degree levels from Certificate through Doctoral, certain core classes must be taken. These core classes include but are not limited to:

 

Hebrew I and II

Hebrew Bible Study Methodology

Greek Bible Study Methodology

Hebrew Concepts of the New Testament I and II

 

Kidron strongly holds to the principle that the five elements of culture, language, history, archaeology, and geography are essential for interpretation of the biblical text.

 

 

Certificate Program

 

The Kidron Christian College and Seminary Certificate Program is an intensive (two) 16-week-semester academic program that prepares students for leadership in the local church. This program incorporates all necessary categories to develop students in the Word of God. These categories are history, language, culture, geography, and archaeology. Additionally, classes are presented to prepare students for future academic study. 

 

These classes are taught by professors who have demonstrated both an understanding of and experience in the Jewish foundations of the faith as well as having successful ministries. Kidron Christian College and Seminary is dedicated to the success of those called to leadership in the local church as well as those who desire a deeper knowledge of the Word of God without pursuing a full academic degree.

 

Although the courses are laid out in a semester format, distance and correspondence students may enroll and begin at any time.

Master's Degrees and Doctorates

 

Students who have completed an accredited bachelor's degree may be interested in pursuing an upper-level graduate degree. We consider many factors when a person enrolls in a graduate degree program. The process is different for those who have earned an undergraduate degree from Kidron, because each of them has satisfied the core requirements of the school. For those who are transferring in at the graduate level, this is normally not the case, and these classes must be taken no matter the degree. These core classes include:

 

Hebrew I and II

Hebrew Bible Study Methodology

Hebrew Concepts of the New Testament I and II

Greek I and II

Greek Bible Study Methodology

Biblical Regional Studies

Culture at the Time of Jesus

Church History

Biblical Archaeology

Messianic Jewish Theology

Messianic Rabbinic Thought

 

If a student has taken some of these classes at other institutions, it may be that those hours can be transferred in. 

 

At the time a student applies for admission for an upper-level degree, he/she has in mind an area of study to specialize in. It is for that reason that once core requirements are satisfied in the master's and doctoral degree fields, all credit hours will be conducted by directed research. In other words, at Kidron each graduate degree is a research degree in the student's field of interest. For that reason, all graduate degree criteria is developed on an individual basis. Kidron retains the right to change these research classes to overcome weaknesses in any particular area and to build on strengths.
