Welcome to the Point University Academic Affairs Office!
Point offers the four-year bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees, a two-year associate of arts degree and a fifth-year, undergraduate bachelor of theology degree. In keeping with the purpose of the University, all courses and programs are designed to concur with a Christian worldview. In order for the University to best serve the student's needs, the student should decide on a program of study early in his or her college career.
With the realization that many entering students have not yet decided on a definite program, a basic group of courses has been organized into a core curriculum. These basic courses serve as a guide during the freshman and sophomore years. The core curriculum helps students determine their abilities and interests, and serves as a foundation on which to build their degree programs. The University's four-year degree programs are based on the core curriculum, which is presented on the web page of the Department of Humanities and General Studies.
The four-year degree programs, the B.A. and the B.S., require 128 semester hours of credit. The principal difference between the B.A. and the B.S. degrees is that the B.A. requires the study of a foreign language. For the B.A. and B.S. degrees, at least 25 percent of the required semester hours must be taken at Point. The associate of arts and bachelor of theology degrees both require that at least 30 semester hours of the required courses be taken at Point.
The internship requirement of baccalaureate programs involves the assignment of upper-class students to selected fields of service under the supervision of a local congregation, organization or institution, with a field observer and a faculty advisor. Two to four credit hours may be received, depending on the program of study. The internship program is based on the conviction that the learning experience is strengthened by practice. An internship gives the student an opportunity for supervised practical experience while continuing classroom studies.
A Point degree program's requirements and courses may be changed through appropriate academic channels at any time. For the most up-to-date and specific degree requirements, procedures, and suggested semester-by-semester sequencing, see the registrar or your academic advisor.
If you have questions or concerns about your academic program, please feel free to stop by the Academic Affairs Office. Again, welcome to Point!
