The Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies (BACS) combines theological education with the history of Western thought in order to develop the intellectual and spiritual maturity of Texas Baptist College offers education for life—that is, for living the truly human life; the life of virtue, of purpose, and of properly ordered desires and longings made possible by Jesus (John 10:10). This degree embarks on an exploration of worldview questions and ideas of the classical and Christian liberal arts tradition aimed at shaping students into persons who flourish in whichever vocational context to which they may be called.

The BAH couples well with the MDiv, which prepares students for the broadest range of Christian ministries. Students in the Roy J. Fish School of Evangelism and Missions may use elective hours to pursue a concentration listed below or they may simply use their free electives to complete Fish School electives in keeping with their ministry goals and academic interests.
