Academic Programs


The length of all curricula leading to a baccalaureate degree is four years. The first two years of study are devoted primarily to liberal arts, with an essential foundation laid for later specialization. This plan has outstanding merit. An understanding of the physical and social environment and of the possibilities for usefulness of it is basic to an understanding of effective professional procedures. The emphasis in the last two years is given to further growth in the field of the student’s major interest. Internships and practicum experiences are reserved for time near the completion of the student’s course work. The College recently implemented an ABC Works Program required for entering students residing on campus and for some non-residential students.

A student may complete a four-year curriculum within three calendar years provided he/she takes full advantage of Summer sessions. Students initially entering Arkansas Baptist College are required to enroll in the Introduction to the Bible course as part of the general education core curriculum.

The Introduction to the Bible requirement in curricular offerings is designed to fulfill a significant role in meeting the mission of Arkansas Baptist College. This Religious Studies course will provide students with a general orientation to a Christian life, increase the students’ knowledge of the Bible, and provide an avenue for the development of maturing Christian faith.
