OUR PROGRAM OF STUDY: AN OVERVIEW All educational programs and majors offered and degrees granted by TTSSF are exclusively in religious disciplines for ministerial, missionary, and religious education and services. The sole purpose and function of our programs, courses and curricula are to prepare genuinely Born Again believers in Christ for the work of service or ministry in accordance to the premise of Ephesians 4: 7-16, et. al. Degrees issued through ecclesiastical educational institutions, such as TTSSF, may not be regarded by some in the secular academic and business communities with parity to those issued by state, secular, or other private universities. On the contrary, we desire to make it clear that the two are manifestly different in terms of premise, substance, delivery system, philosophy of both purpose and application, and status.
As required by Florida Statue 246.084, a minimum of 60 credits is required for the Associates Degree, 120 credits for the Bachelors, 24 hours beyond the Bachelors for the Masters, 60 hours beyond the Bachelors for the Doctorate, and 21 hrs for the Certificate. Required courses from Areas 1 combine to form out core courses, giving every student primary background in theology. Area 2 concentrates on courses, which allow the student to major in his or her area of ministry. We offer the following degree areas: Ministry, Theology, Christian Counseling, Christian Education, Biblical Studies, Religious Fine Arts, Chaplaincy and Christian Media Communications. Thus you may earn any of the following degrees (or Lay Ministry certificate, which requires no previous certificates or degrees) in those areas:
∑Associate of Arts (A.A.) ∑Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) ∑Master of Arts (M.A.) ∑Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) ∑Doctor of Theology (Th.D.)
TTSSF also awards the following honorary degrees: D.D. - Doctor of Divinity (for outstanding ministry), D. Evan. - Doctor of Evangelism (for outstanding evangelism efforts) or C.E.D. - Doctor of Education (for an exemplary teaching ministry.)

MAJOR IN THEOLOGY - "CORE COURSES"
Trinity Theological Seminary South Florida offers a choice of nine majors: Ministry, Theology, Christian Counseling, Spiritual Addiction Counseling, Christian Education, Church Administration, Christian Music, Religion, and Christian Media Communications. All students, however, are required to take "core" Theology courses.
A major in Theology encompasses four areas of study: 1) Bible Competence, 2) Experiencing God, 3) Developing Your Spiritual Conscious, 4) Using Your Spiritual Gifts, and 5) Discernment and Declaring God. The Theology major may then complete the degree with electives. Selected coursework for the major in Theology is REQUIRED OF ALL STUDENTS regardless of their major or degree received. It provides a broad base of Bible knowledge and Christian maturity, which is essential in any Christian ministry. It consists of 15 required courses (45 credits) for the Degree student and 5 courses (15 credits) for the Certificate student. These are called CORE COURSES. (Other elective courses are offered in each of the four areas of study).
AREA ONE: BIBLE COMPETENCE
God has given man the Bible to study in order that we might know Him, and His ways; and man and his ways.
A.The student will have a working knowledge of the whole Bible.
B. The student will be able to do in-depth Bible Study under the illumination of the Holy Spirit.
C. The student will have a working knowledge of the major themes and doctrines of the Bible.
AREA TWO: EXPERIENCING GOD
"Be ye holy, for I, the Lord your God, am holy." (Lev.11:44; I Pet.1:15-16). "Work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who is at work in you both to will and to work for His good pleasure." (Phil. 2: 12-13) Holiness is appropriating the grace of God whereby the Lordship of Christ is manifest in every area of our lives: spirit, soul, and body.
The student will move toward a greater degree of sanctification (purity) in his spirit, soul, and body. To "sanctify" means to "set apart unto." One must learn the process of setting himself apart unto God.
