Learn and live the language of the Bible

Committed to the divine inspiration and authority of the Bible, the College offers a range of biblically-relevant language courses, supported by faculty members who are qualified in and dedicated to their teaching discipline. Members of the College’s faculty routinely participate in lectures, seminars, and symposia held at the TSU campus in Albuquerque and other venues.
