I'm excited about the Bible / Theology core curriculum in the Interdisciplinary degree. This major also provides flexibility for students, enabling them to design a program to fit their particular interests, talents, or calling.

This is the heart of the Bible College movement which has provided effective pastors and missionaries who have evangelized the lost and planted churches in our country and around the world.

Why Interdisciplinary?


Why study a prescribed curriculum when you can custom-build your own degree? Choose the accredited Interdisciplinary degree at Appalachian Bible College to develop top skills in multiple areas and pursue your heart's passion!

Surveys indicate that most students change their majors at least three times before graduating. While there is nothing wrong with changing your major, the risk is that you will fall behind. Transfer students face a similar challenge. ABC's Interdisciplinary bachelor's degree may be just what you need to graduate on schedule.
