Watch the TEACHER EDUCATION
God did not give us the Bible to serve as a science textbook. He did, however, intend for it to play a major role in the development of our Christian worldview. At Baptist Bible College, intensive study of the Word allows each student to pursue scientific studies from a godly perspective.
Our Science Education program will help you comprehensively learn the sciences in well-designed laboratory and classroom studies that recognize the Creator. In order to hone your teaching skills, we explore effective teaching methods from both biblical and modern research perspectives. Our students regularly interact with many of the best teachers in Pennsylvania.

Many options after graduation
You will graduate from our program with two separate certifications. Certification from the PA Department of Education qualifies you to teach science in any secondary school in Pennsylvania and may be transferred to many other states.

What they say
“Small science classes and educated Bible professors who truly care about you make BBC an excellent place to study science and ministry. Science is taught from a biblical perspective, and the professors prepare you to defend what you believe.”
- Rebecca Clark, BBC student
“The faculty is amazing. They are willing to invest in our private lives as much as their lives allow. They answer our questions and share their knowledge. Spiritually, they are available to guide and provide challenges to help us grow more. They give you ways to present the Bible through science. The teachers at BBC are knowledgeable and have practical experience that helps guide their students.”
