Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) was ranked for having the best online degree for Biblical Studies according to Online School Reports

SAGU offers a Bachelor's of Biblical Studies degree both on-campus and online covering the study of biblical research, hermeneutics, and biblical preaching. SAGU's church ministry degree programs are well known for their approach to practical training to equip the next generation of ministers for real-world situations in church leadership and evangelism.  The bachelor’s of Biblical Studies is no exception preparing its majors for a variety of vocational ministry roles and instilling its majors with a deep understanding of the literary and theological content of each book of the Bible. It provides an intensified program of Biblical research as students learn to translate biblical Greek and Hebrew. The degree program also provides an excellent base for those planning to pursue a master’s of theology or divinity. 

“They learn not only about ministry, but about dealing with people in a church setting and how to help with a new ministry,” - Dr. Mike Clarensau, Dean of SAGU’s College of Bible and Church Ministries.

SAGU also reduced the tuition for online classes from $575 to $499 per credit hour, valuing up to $10,000 on a four-year degree!

In the Online Schools Report ranking, SAGU was ranked among other distinguished universities including Oral Roberts University, Dallas Baptist University, Barclay College, and Trinity Bible College.
