In keeping with the intent of the university’s founders, the College of Bible and Ministry serves the entire campus community by teaching the Bible to each student. Faith-based learning is common to all of our academic programs. Christian education at Lipscomb also includes a direct exposure to the message of Scripture and its call to the fullness of life available to a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Those who desire to be further equipped for a life of ministry may major in Theology and Ministry and add one or more areas of concentration as detailed in this section. Students who pursue this path will receive more extensive training in interpreting Scripture, thinking theologically and nurturing the faith of others as well as their own.
Off-site learning experiences (i.e. clinical, practicum, internship, etc.) are required in many courses of study at Lipscomb. Successful completion of these experiential courses is required for graduation and/or licensure. Students should be aware that many experiential sites require satisfactory documentation of personal identification in the form of driver’s licenses, social security cards, passports, drug screening and background checks. Students should make sure that they are aware of and can meet all documentation requirements well in advance of the timeframe for admission into the respective program and placement into these sites. Failure to provide required documentation for successful entry into these experiential courses will result in failure to complete the desired program of study.
