WELCOME


The educational programs of Dallas Christian College produce graduates who are able to influence others in various settings, including ministry, business, and education.

All the degree programs of DCC meet ABHE requirements for a balanced curriculum in Bible, general education, and specialized or professional studies. This reflects the college’s conviction that knowledge of the Bible is basic to education.

MAJORS


Dallas Christian College seeks to educate and mentor students to be people of influence, under God’s influence, for a life of influence. The educational programs seek to produce graduates who are able to influence others in various ministry settings as well as in education, business, and psychology.

Since God is the source of all wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, and since all of creation is His, education logically begins from Him. In light of this, all courses of the College begin from the assumption that all true knowledge, biblical and otherwise, comes from God and should be judged in light of His word.

The General Education curriculum emerges from the College’s conviction that all students need an understanding of themselves, their world, and their community, combined with the ability to think and communicate effectively. This curriculum is required in all degree plans; this foundation prepares students to apply this knowledge in their major and to become people of godly influence who appreciate God’s entire domain.
