Legal Status and Accreditation

Revealed Word University is accredited and Member of Christ for Nations International Association of Bible Schools, Dallas, Texas, USA (CFNIABS) and provides quality assurance in higher education. The CFNI Association of Bible Schools was established in 1993 to further the expansion of the Kingdom in the nations through strengthening the work of leadership training in associated bible schools. Currently there are 82 schools from 42 nations as members. Each school has to pass through a strict vetting process.

Accreditation is an important part of certification, as it means that if a college is accredited it meets the minimum standards set by an accreditation agency. Minimum standards mean that there is accountability, that certain criteria are met, that there is good record keeping and that the college has outside recognition. Our goal is to go way beyond the minimum standards.

The purpose of accreditation is to:

  • certify that an institution has met the established standards of excellence assist prospective students in identifying reputable institutions, which offer degree programs that will meet their needs and goals
  • allow institutions to evaluate the acceptability of transfer credits into their own curricula programs. Accreditation is a private, voluntary, non-governmental peer-review process that reviews the educational quality of an institution or program. In the United States, accreditation is the primary means of assuring educational quality. Accreditation status confirms that an institution has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive self-study and peer examination that demonstrates the institution meets standards of accreditation. To receive accreditation, the institution must clearly demonstrate that it has established educational goals, offers formal, organized learning experiences and services that enable students to meet these stated goals and that students and graduates have benefited from the learning experiences provided. Furthermore, accreditation assures that an institution operates on a sound financial basis, has approved programs of study, qualified instructors, adequate facilities and equipment and engages in continual improvement through self-evaluation and planning and promotes its programs truthfully.

A degree is only valid if it is properly granted by an entity that has the legal authority to do so and degree-granting authorization cannot be conferred by an accrediting body. Accreditation agencies are themselves private membership associations and relied upon by many governmental entities to perform certain qualitative and evaluative functions. However, they do not themselves have the authority to issue degrees nor have the power to authorize the existence of a college or a degree program.

Government-recognized accreditation is not necessary for the religious vocations in which we are equipping our students and people working in ministry positions do not need a government accredited degree.

Our courses meet the requirements established by many private, independent, and professional associations. Various regionally or nationally accredited Christian Universities, colleges and seminaries throughout the United States may accept transfer students, credits and degrees from Revealed Word University.

Transferability of credits earned at Revealed Word University and transferred to another Institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

All our Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees are issued from our USA campus, Sheridan Wyoming WY 828011 USA. Where we are headquartered. All students outside of the USA are considered as online students of Revealed Word University and are registered at our Sheridan Wyoming, USA campus as such. We have students from more than 10 nations and therefore cannot meet all the legal and/or accreditation requirements for each nation. Therefore, we are not able to set up a physical presence in each nation except in Sheridan Wyoming WY 828011 USA. We are pursuing national accreditation in Rwanda in Africa for meting special students’ needs in marketplace. We are    in partnership with different schools such as Distant Production House University, Christ For Nations Institute and local churches and ministries all-over the world.

Life Experience

All degrees at Revealed Word University are earned degrees. This is achieved by Mandatory coursework that must be completed. University transcripts do not always reflect real life experience. Revealed Word University recognizes life experience which may have been gained through years of work which is ministry related.

Many people have served in ministry positions and have gained a lot of knowledge and experience in their fields, but do not have any formal certificate, diploma, or degree. Life experience credits can give some of the recognition needed for this service in the work of the Lord. This acceptance of life credits helps a potential student to accelerate their learning college experience and enable them to earn a fully accredited ministry related degree. Applicants must have had more than five years in a recognized position in ministry or fifteen years in private business that contributed lot in God’s Kingdom Development.

No diplomas or degrees can be awarded based purely upon life-experience. Life experience credit cannot be given for an entire degree but is limited to a maximum of 45 credit hours.

Life experience which could include such things as books authored, missions trips, classes taught, outreach ministries, ministries within a church, etc., must be documented along with the years they occurred and submitted for evaluation.

Credit Transfers

Revealed Word University can transfer all credits from accredited institutions such as Colleges, seminaries, Christian universities, etc. Courses transferred must be equivalent in content & requirements to courses in the Revealed Word University catalogue.

The credits must be reported on an official transcript.

Start your own School

Revealed Word University works closely with local Pastors, Christian leaders and local Churches in diverse countries. We are aware that there is a growing trend for local Church leaders and pastors to train and equip their own members in typical Church-based settings. We respect the autonomy of the local Church and are willing to assist Church leaders in their desire to equip their own people at a local level.

Pastors and Christian Leaders can begin their own colleges which pass through 3 accreditation steps as follows:

A Three Year Process

To begin with, we have set up a three year progression and campus evaluation process. The campus is assessed and inspected at the end of each year to see if the management of and operating standards have been met. This is done to assist you with correct management procedures and before giving the campus the opportunity of progressing to the next year.

As a developing school/campus we need to be sure that you know and understand the process of running a campus. After successful assessment and audit of your campus by RWU, you may offer students the opportunity of continuing and your campus will be upgraded so that you will be able to work toward becoming an Associate Campus/School.

We look at all your record keeping. Your standard of Facilitation. Whether facilitators are meeting the requirements and if students are happy they are getting what has been offered. We also take into account your management, administration, accountability, and record keeping in terms of student portfolios, marking, exams, timetables, filing, attendance of students, keeping to the program, reports, quarterly reports to RWU, communication, reporting structures, proper course material for students, access to and cost of printing course material, book keeping and payment records related to that and other necessary management requirements.

Facilitators need to be geared up and ready to work closely with students in this phase. They also have to be trained in how to mark relevant course material. In doing so, they will first have had to achieve this section of the curriculum in order to be able to mark the material. No facilitator who has not actually done this phase will be allowed to mark fellow students’ assignments. After successful assessment and passing the required operating standards and audit, we will advise you whether your campus may offer students the opportunity of continuing to the next phase in working towards becoming a Certified Campus/School.

At this point, Facilitators will be required to know and study ahead of time, the Leadership and Administration or the Surveys. As they will eventually be marking the student’s work, they are required to know and fully understand the course content and have passed prior to facilitating students. At the end of this year, the campus is assessed and audited and should you meet the requirements set out by RWU, you will be upgraded to certified status. This means that you are in a position to offer up to Bachelor Degree in Biblical Theology.

At this point you should have determined your team. Facilitators who are grounded and able to take students through the various phases of study. Facilitators who are accountable and transparent. You should have a functional campus. Not all campuses actually ever get to offering Associate Degree or Bachelor Degree, but function brilliantly in offering Certificate in Ministry which is Pure Theology and gives all students an excellent base in terms of discipleship training and understanding the Word of God.

Not many campuses are accredited past Associate Degree either. The requirements are stringent and we do not assume or expect campuses to struggle along. It is better to have a very well-run campus, training people in Pure Theology than a campus that strives only for certification and does not meet the requirements.

Assessment of your campus takes place towards the end of each year in the form of a random audit and where possible we will do an on-site visit. We repeat the assessment process at the end of each year.

Should your campus not pass the requirements, you may still work towards upgrading your status to offer Degrees to students and we will try and assist you. Certificates must be displayed at all times (or available upon request). Students also need to be advised about the process and should be free to apply directly to RWU to continue with their studies should your campus not meet the requirements set out or if they are no longer able to attend regular classes due to personal changes such as moving their location or extended working hours etc. Some students are not in a position to pay towards their studies, so this too should be taken into consideration and discussed with RWU.

Study Online

No student has to wait for a full year or semester to start with studies. Different people study at different paces which means a student can now determine and maintain his or her own pace. Students can register any time of the year as and when it suits the student best in terms of own circumstances, whether it be available funds, job requirements or any other circumstances.

Our online learning programs serve students who:

  • cannot attend our campus in Sheridan Wyoming WY 828011 USA
  • are unable to attend a Church-based Bible college/Campus in their city
  • are pursuing a degree, but need to complete some courses through distance delivery

Online (Master, Doctorate or non- pure theological study programs) education brings the college with all its resources right into your home which you can access at any time of your choice.

We have listed a number of advantages of online learning:

  • Flexibility - You can access your course materials at any time of the day and night and from anywhere in the world, as long as you have internet access and a computer or similar device that has internet accessibility. We can also post your books to you if you choose this option.
  • Convenience - Campus classes are rigid whereas online study can be scheduled around work and family as long as you are disciplined and put in the necessary hours of work required for the online classes.
  • Access to instructors - you can email your instructor at any time with any question and have your questions answered promptly. You are the only person competing for the instructor’s attention.
  • Cost saving – Studying online will save you time and money by eliminating the need to travel to and from campus. The campus is right where you happen to be at any time.
  • Access to the world - Every quality resource that you may need to help you complete your classes is available on the internet. The internet can take you to far-flung places across the globe and connect you with unique pieces of information that may not be accessible in the Traditional on-campus environment.
  • Global connection - Online study will place you in contact with other students from all over the world from different cultures which will give you an insight to other worldviews, which will allow help with your personal ministry growth.

Graduation

Students can start studying at any time during the year. They can also graduate as soon as they have completed their study program.

Revealed Word University will hold regional graduations ceremonies each year throughout the United States and celebration services in the various other nations worldwide.

Attendance is not compulsory. Certificates, Diplomas and Degrees will be forwarded to students on completion of their studies which are issued from our USA campus only.

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Biblical Studies is a terminal research doctorate designed to prepare and equip biblical scholars who show exceptional academic promise and teaching potential.

The degree program requires 60 credit hours of study, including the doctoral dissertation. The program is delivered in a blended format, leveraging online technology with face-to-face seminar experiences, resulting in a model of delivery that fits the lives of adult learners. Because of this alternate delivery method, the PhD in Biblical Studies will be accessible to men and women who are already actively engaged in full-time marketplace employment or Christian ministries and are unable to enter a traditional residency program.

These students will join a cohort of peers who, together, will progress though a prescribed sequence of seminars, develop sustainable habits of scholarly inquiry, and enjoy the benefits of functioning in a cooperative learning environment.

Through the PhD in Biblical Studies, students will realize a greater mastery of biblical languages, historical backgrounds, and theological frameworks. The program also contains a significant component of seminar work dedicated to the development of mediated and classroom teaching skills for the instruction of adult learners, including learning theory, instructional design, and educational technology. In addition to the more common humanities-based research model for biblical research, students will have the option of focusing their dissertation research in the area of biblical instruction by using empirical methodologies as well as humanities-based research designs.

The integration of these studies and disciplines will enable the candidates to conduct doctoral level research and will equip them to serve in the educational and ministerial fields which require the highest level of academic degree achievement.

PURPOSE

The purpose of the PhD in BIBLICAL STUDIES; THEOLOGY ; DIVINITY; MINISTRY programs is to prepare twenty-first century professors, teachers, pastors, missionaries, and other types of ministry educators to teach biblical and theological studies in Bible colleges, Christian liberal arts colleges, seminaries, and other teaching contexts and equip them to integrate a significant knowledge of educational technology, adult learning theory, and mediated learning methodology in their teaching role

CORE COMPETENCIES

 

As a result of completing the PhD in Biblical Studies, the student will attain an excellent command of the historical, cultural, and linguistic foundations of Scripture. The student will also attain an expert’s ability to apply advanced hermeneutical principles to develop a theology of Scripture and to critically evaluate theological systems. The graduate of the program will then be empowered to serve as a teacher of teachers, employing the most effective and innovative techniques, including computer technology and mediated instruction. The program will also prepare world-class scholars proficient in advanced research methods leveraging cutting-edge computer research techniques.

 

EXPERT BIBLICAL EXEGETE

 

  • Deepen and sharpen the student’s ability to exegete Scripture through advanced training in the original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. The students explore the cognate languages and study textual criticism to expand their knowledge and understanding of the wider foundations of Scripture.
  • Enable the student to comprehend and analyze Scripture against the backdrop of the languages, civilizations, and literatures of the ancient world in which the revelation of God was first given to humanity.
  • Equip the student with exegetical skills needed to effectively discern the teaching of Scripture for the sake of communicating biblical truth to others.

INNOVATOR OF EDUCATION

 

  • Equip students to think and execute skillfully as classroom and online teachers. Courses focus on the acquisition of the knowledge and skills necessary for comprehending human development processes, learning theory, and the teaching-learning process as they apply to both the classroom and online teaching contexts.
  • Students will gain an understanding of adult learning theory and its effective application to the teaching of adults in the changing higher education environment. Students learn how to engage adult learners in face-to-face, online, and blended teaching contexts. Students explore appropriate teaching models for adult learners in mediated learning environments. As students employ technological tools and blended learning techniques, they further hone the ability to train others to effectively use the same tools and techniques.

 

RESEARCH SCHOLAR

 

  • As a result of completing the PhD in Biblical Studies program, the student will gain the ability to think and execute skillfully as a researcher-scholar and author using computer technology. This core competency focuses on the development of research skills necessary in the completion of a research doctoral degree. This is accomplished through three primary
    means : the foundational research course, mentored research, and the dissertation sequence.
  • Students may elect one of two approaches to research – the humanities approach most commonly employed in biblical scholarship or an empirical approach often employed in the field of education. Students will take a Biblical Research and Writing Course which includes an introduction to empirical research methods at the beginning of the program.
  • Biblical Research & Writing Course: This course is taken in the first semester to orient the student to the research and writing methods which will continue to be developed throughout the duration of the program. The student is also introduced to the cohort learning model and participates in collaborative learning processes. The principles established in this foundational course also feed directly into the educational competency as they model the teaching methods from the pedagogical courses.
  • Mentored Research: All students are assigned a scholar-mentor who will assist them in honing the skill of research. Mentors supervise the student’s research and serve as the chair of the student’s dissertation committee.
  • Biblical Research Dissertation Sequence: The dissertation sequence consists of
  • four stages: Reading & Prospectus, Chapters 1-2, Dissertation Completion, and Dissertation Defense. Building on the foundation laid in the Biblical Research & Writing Course, this core competency furthers the development of the essential knowledge and thinking skills needed to carry out the entire research process, including identification of the research problem, conducting a literature review, designing of research approach, and writing of the dissertation. It also develops the analytical and critical thinking skills needed to evaluate and interpret research findings. This competency culminates with the writing and defense of a research dissertation.
  • Biblical Instruction Dissertation Option: Using an empirical approach to research design, students may elect to study aspects of biblical instruction in the mediated learning environment. Each candidate for the PhD in Biblical Studies Instruction Option must complete a dissertation based on the candidate’s own systematic inquiry into an area of advanced research in academic instruction. The dissertation is intended to demonstrate competency in research design, methodology, and the ability to think critically and make a contribution to the literature in the field of study. Special permission is required from the Dean of the Seminary to pursue this dissertation approach. Students who complete this option will substitute Statistics and Empirical Research Methods in place of the research language requirements BIB 907 and BIB 908.

 

CURRICULAR DESIGN AND DISTINCT CHARACTERISTICS

 

  • This program requires a minimum of three and a half years of study. Students who enroll in the PhD in Biblical Studies degree program will complete 60 hours of academic study consisting of 40 credit hours of core competency seminars and 20 credit hours of focused, research related study, including comprehensive exams, prospectus preparation, and completion of the dissertation.

 

DESIGNED FOR “LIFE-ENGAGED” LEARNERS

 

“Life-engaged” learners are students who are actively engaged in family, church, and professional life while participating in the doctoral program. While the program is intensive in nature, the time required on campus will not necessitate relocation or require students to leave their current leadership context. This is accomplished through an internet enhanced delivery model. Students can earn a PhD in Biblical Studies in as little as three and a half years without leaving their work or ministry, moving their family, or uprooting their life.

A COHORT COMMUNITY OF LEARNERS

 

The PhD in Biblical Studies is a cohort-based program. Students will enter the program with a group of 12 to 18 other students. This cohort follows a prescribed sequence of courses together. Because cohort learning involves a group of students who start and finish their degree together, students experience a number of educational advantages. Cohort learning, delivered in a blended manner with both face-to-face and Internet enhanced learning, offers one of the most effective learning opportunities available to the doctoral student. Genuine, rich, and deep relationships will be developed through the course of the program as students support and serve each other in the quest for knowledge. As part of a cohort group, doctoral students will be expected to ground their research in significant and pertinent literature and to share resources with their colleagues in preparation for on-site seminars.

 

INTERNET ENHANCED LEARNING

 

  • This program combines faculty-mediated online interaction with face to-face seminar participation. This model enables students to benefit from both types of interaction while maintaining the highest standards of academic quality. Students participate in online discussions and other learning activities led by both the professor and fellow students. On campus interactions involve open dialogue in face-to-face seminar sessions led by nationally renowned and published faculty members.
  • Using the mediated learning model described above, each course has three learning components.
    • Pre-Seminar Component: During the course weeks prior to each seminar, students complete readings and other pre-seminar assignments. During this component of the course, students are required to participate at least three hours each week in online discussions led by the professor.
    • Face-to-Face Component: Seminars will be conducted at the campus site or at an approved extension site using an accelerated format. Each seminar will consist of 24 hours of face-to-face seminar instruction. Research seminars will engage students in critical reflection with the seminar content.
    • Post-Seminar Component: During the course weeks following the face-to-face component of the seminar, students complete post-seminar readings and research. Students will also participate three hours each week in online discussions led by the professor or students in the cohort.
