Through writing an essay, students will be able to demonstrate their interest in and promise for college study in biblical studies. At the time of the exam, each student will receive a text (a few paragraphs long) about biblical studies and will be given a topic to write on in response to that text. The response essay should demonstrate excellent reading and analytical skills, sound writing skills, and the student’s ability to frame and develop a theme based on the material in the text and the assigned topic. In addition to the essay, candidates will meet one-on-one for an interview with a Biblical Studies professor.
