Bridge Dual Degree Program

Current Student?

Bridge programs are a great way to continue your journey towards your next level in ministry!

The Bridge Dual Degree Program is designed for students who desire to receive a Master degree in Kingdom Theology from the Kingdom Bible University.  This program will allow students to complete an accelerated set of  Kingdom-focused courses that will culminate with receiving both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Kingdom Theology in less time than completing both, separately. Our combined degree option is a great way to save time and money by allowing you to work toward two degree levels at the same time!

The course load will be completed in three phases. However, the Bachelor’s degree will not be conferred to the student until both requirements of Bachelor’s and Master’s program are complete. A combined degree option allows you to:

  • Save thousands in tuition compared to pursuing each degree separately.
  • Complete your Master’s degree up to 2 years sooner.
