Because VACU is a Bible and theological school, the certificate and degree programs are structured to give every student a thorough background in the Bible and reformed doctrine. Thus, every student regardless of their professional specialization is a Bible and theology major. The curriculum also provides students with a foundation in general education so that they will comprehend the history, language, ideology, and expressions of past and present world cultures. All of this is designed to help students develop a truly biblical world and life view. To complete the undergraduate curriculum, students specialize in an elected professional area, which is considered a concentration. A balance is maintained between both theory and skill courses, and, in some cases, electives allow students to adapt the program to their specific areas of vocational interest. Students are required to tie their Field Education assignments to their area of professional concentration.
