Foreign Language Requirement

UMHB requires students pursuing the BA degree to complete a minimum of 14 hours (4 semesters) in one foreign language. Christian Studies majors may satisfy the BA foreign language requirement by taking any of the following languages: a biblical language (Hebrew or Greek), Latin, German, or a Romance language (e.g., French or Spanish). The College urges students pursuing a BA degree to satisfy the foreign language requirement with either biblical Greek or Hebrew. Study of the biblical languages enhances students’ understanding of the Bible and prepares them for biblical language requirements in graduate school.

Students pursuing the BCM degree (Bachelor of Christian Ministry) are required to complete 8 hours (2 semesters) in either Greek or Hebrew.
