Program Student Learning Outcomes:

The Voorhees College Bachelor of Arts in Theological Studies offers adult learners from various fields and employment backgrounds an opportunity to complete their degree for career enhancement and promotional opportunities by exposure to a plethora of courses routed in theological perspectives.
