THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY DIVISION

Admission requirements include a Bachelor Degree or Diploma, with at least 128 credit hours, from an approved college or seminary.  The student must have a G.P.A. of 3.0 or higher to enter the Master’s Programs. The average time for completion of the Master’s Diploma program is two to three years, depending on the student’s pace, the major, and time required for completion of the thesis.

   The student is required to complete an intense course of study culminating in a Master thesis that relates directly to the diploma major.  The Master’s thesis must contain the following components:

  • 1. Reading Assignments
  • 2. Footnotes or End Notes as prescribed
  • 3. A complete bibliography of all sources (at least 15 sources)
  • 4. As soft bound copy (a report cover)
  • 5. Two copies must be submitted to the Theological Seminary
  • 6. An oral defense of the thesis, only if deemed appropriate by the Faculty Dean.
  • GENERAL INFORMATION REGARDING ALL DOCTORAL PROGRAMS

       The Doctorate is awarded for completion of an advance course of study. A Master’s degree or diploma from an approved college or seminary is required for acceptance into this program. As is the case with ALL programs offered by Central Arkansas Baptist Bible Institute, at the time of the evaluation for enrollment, the student may be required to complete additional courses as prerequisites.  The purpose for this is to assure that a graduate from CABBI has a firm foundation in the diploma program in which he plans to complete. The average time for completion of the Doctorate is between two and three years depending on the student’s pace, the degree major, and the time require to complete the dissertation. The student must have a Grade Point Average of 3.5 or better to enter the Doctoral programs.  Only “B” work and above will be accepted toward fulfillment of graduation.  Each candidate must be elected by the Administration to enter the Doctoral Programs.

MASTER OF DIVINITY

   Requiring a Bachelor’s degree as a prerequisite, this standard professional degree requires 96 semester hours of credit from CABBI; 33 of which may be in practical ministries, concurrently pursued while regular studies in theology and/or biblical studies are proceeding. Transfer credits can be accepted according to seminary policies.  However, a minimum of 40 semester hours must be earned for this degree. The transfer credits must be Bible related.  Students who already possess a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university may enter this program of study. The Master of Divinity [M.Div.] curriculum is the same as the first three years of Biblical Studies as listed on pages 20 and 21 with the exception that the Master’s student will be assigned 50 per cent [50%] more work to do.

For example, if a student has received a B.A. or B.S. degree from an accredited college or university with no theological major, then that student must first complete his or her Master of Divinity Program and then complete two more years of theological studies for this diploma or degree.  However, if a student has received a Bachelor’s Degree or Diploma from an accredited college, university or seminary with a major in theological studies or Bible Languages, then that student may enroll in the Master of Theology Program or the Master of Bible Languages Program. Contact the school for more information on these particular programs of study.

   The candidate must submit his proposal for his dissertation to the Academic Dean at least 6 months before graduation.  The proposal must contain a suitable title, a thesis proper (what he intends to argue, demonstrate or defend), a justification for writing on the particular topic, intended scope and limitations, and the intended contribution of the study to what is known on the subject.  The proposal should include a table of contents or an outline page as well as chapter titles and subdivisions written in proper (Turabian) form stating the intentions of each section. The proposal also should include a bibliography. The dissertation should be approximately 50,000 words in length; however, approval will not be based on mere length but on intellectual content, literary excellence, and compositional structure. The dissertation must be in conformity to Kate L. Turabian, A Manual for Writers, current edition, which is supplemented and interpreted by CABBI’s Guidelines for Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations.

   Written permission must be granted by the institute and seminary before reproducing the dissertation in any form for public distribution.  All Theses and Dissertations become the property of Central Arkansas Baptist Bible Institute.
