The Baptist College of Florida in Graceville, Fl., has been approved by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to offer several new programs to include: English, English for Secondary Education, History and Social Studies, History and Social Studies for Secondary Education, Christian Studies, Ministry Studies, and Leadership and Christian Education.
"These new programs will enable us to provide for training in a much broader arena for those who will be serving our Lord in an ever increasing number of roles," stated BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen. "I am especially delighted that we received approval in the areas for Secondary Education and a new Business Program in our Leadership degree. The teacher education additions will enable us to move toward our goal of providing a comprehensive Pre-K through 12 program for teachers in public and private schools. The new business program will enable us to provide students with degrees with a focus on the much needed field of not-for-profit business. These new programs will enable our graduates to go into vastly expanded new areas of service. The Great Commission of our Lord and the desperate condition of our world demand that we do everything possible to educate and train all that we can in every way that we can to carry all of the Good News to all of the world while we can."
This action by SACS will allow BCF to pursue several changes in programming and delivery systems. A recently appointed ad-hoc committee is studying innovative new ventures in scheduling that are pointed toward making programs more readily available to our students.
The approved new programs will impact both the campus based students and distance education programs at the College. The new degrees are available beginning the fall 2008 semester. For more information on all the degrees offered at The Baptist College of Florida, please contact 800.328.2660 ext 460.
