Students at BGU now receive an accredited education while they do missions work overseas.
Today BGU announced that it was awarded accreditation through The Association for Biblical Higher Education.
Partnered with BGU’s tuition-paid program, students who intend to serve on the mission field can now earn a college degree that maintains high educational standards, and they can do so at a fraction of the cost of a typical four-year university.
“BGU is the only school of its kind,” said Paul Hartford, Vice President of Academic Affairs. “We are now the only accredited school that is solely focused on missionary training. The university’s mission is to ‘extend God’s kingdom to where it is not” – to take the Church to where it is not. Our precision-focus on missionary training means we will not offer other degrees, programs, or certificates that do not fit this goal.”
