Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theology

Calvary Chapel Bible College Europe (CCBCE) offers a three-year accredited Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theology. The program is designed to equip students with a biblical foundation for following Jesus and serving Him.

With an emphasis on making disciples, students are afforded the opportunities of studying through the Bible, cross-cultural fellowship, and serving others. With a desire to reach the nations, students will participate in various outreaches throughout Europe and beyond.

Two-year Bible College Program

The two-year bible college program is in conjunction with Calvary Chapel Bible College (CCBC) campuses worldwide. Students may elect to study one or multiple semesters at CCBCE. From it's inception, CCBC campuses have sought to be a place where committed Christians can learn the Word of God, draw closer to Jesus, and be equipped to serve Him.

Transfer credit will be awarded for university-level work successfully completed, that is congruent with the degree program.

Depending on the passport you possess, you may be required to obtain a visa prior to entering Hungary. If this is the case you must apply and be accepted 90 days before orientation.

Graduation Requirements

  • Candidates for graduation must complete a total of 180 credits.
  • Credit Breakdown: 127 credits of Core Requirements, 23 credits of Electives, and 30 credit Thesis Paper

Read More

  • No grade below a "C-" will be credited toward graduation
  • Transferring Credits: *Minimum of 20 US class credits must be taken through CCBCE.
  • Different from the two-year (CCBC) curriculum, there is a specific order to which classes must be taken. The European system deals with classes in terms of years, rather than semesters. For example, in high school or secondary school, one is required to fulfill the requirements of Algebra I prior to taking Algebra II. In the same manner, classes must be taken in a series. If year one classes (semesters one and two) are not completed, you cannot move on to year two classes. Failure to complete the classes in the specified order can delay graduation by one year (or more).


Distance Learning

CCBCE offers a program of study for those individuals that want to grow in the knowledge of God's Word, but for various reasons are unable to attend the Bible college full-time.

Read More

CCBCE's Distance Learning program is designed for those wanting to take a few courses for personal benefit, to make up course credits, or fulfill required courses for graduation.

We highly recommend that a student attends at least one or two semesters on-campus. Much of the spiritual learning takes place out of the classroom in the cross-cultural experiences of living in a foreign country, among others from various backgrounds, and participating in outreach mission trips each semester. There is a unique spiritual dynamic that takes place when people gather together in one place to seek God and His will for their lives.


  • Fees are $55 per credit.
  • There is a $25 non-refundable application fee to enroll.
  • The student is responsible to purchase any books and materials required for each class.
  • There is no financial refund after the first two weeks of the start date.
  • Check our payment options here.


  • The next entry point into the distance learning program is September 2017. Applications and class registration must be received by July 15, 2017.
