PROGRESSIVE LEVELS OF DEGREES
A degree is an academic title conferred by an institution of higher
learning showing that a person has satisfactorily completed a
particular program of study. The certificate is the actual document itself.
Degrees are progressive. One level is built on the preceding one,
each level representing a higher work effort, and the equivalent of
another year of study. The Japan Bible Institute offers all five
levels: Diploma, Associate, Bachelor, Master, and Doctor:
DIPLOMA— (40 credits) this is the first level, and like a
Christian Worker’s Certificate. Some schools have just a
“Certificate” where we have a Diploma.
ASSOCIATE— (usually 60-64 credits, but we require 90)
the Associate Bachelor degree represents the equivalency of two
years of academic study. Typically, awarded by a junior or
BACHELOR— (120-128 credits) conferred for the equivalency
of four years of full-time study. But you can earn a Bachelor’s degree
in two or three months from some schools. “Bachelor” means that
you have accumulated a “batch” of knowledge. If you receive
a Bachelor’s degree through credit for life work experience from
The Japan Bible Institute Ministries, you are guaranteed admission
into our Master’s degree program, and we also encourage you to go
on to the Doctor’s degree program.
MASTER— (150 credits) this represents at least one year of
study beyond the Bachelor, but lower than the Doctorate, indicating
that you have “mastered a subject.”
DOCTOR— (210 credits) this academic title is awarded for
the completion of advanced study and is the highest degree there is.
It is the ultimate in the educational world, and has been a title of
respect for learned persons since Biblical times, Luke 6:46.
It is traditionally held that it takes a doctor to confer a Doctor’s
degree upon someone else.
DEFINITIONS OF DEGREES
All of these degrees are religious in nature and not only overlap, but
are sometimes thought of inter-exchangeable.
BIBLICAL SUBJECTS—the study of major Scriptural themes
and the main topics of the Sacred Scriptures. Courses dealing
with various doctrines of the Word of God; that which is devoted to
the fundamental beliefs of the Holy Bible.
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION—general instructions in Christianity, and the study of the doctrines of Christ. Training in the teachings
of Jesus Christ and the development of Christian Character.
DIVINITY—the study of the one and only Deity. Having to do with the supreme, infinite and eternal qualities of the Almighty; pertaining
to the Divine Godhead or Holy Trinity. That which
is inspired by God.
MINISTRY—pertaining to the work of the Lord and service for God. Training in the performance of office of clergy. Rendering help to people and caring for the saints.
THEOLOGY—the study of God and the expounding of Christology; Courses dealing with the relationship between God and the universe and man. The cultivation of the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity.
Since our courses are rather general, we don’t mind accommodating our students by granting their preference to receive their diploma, associate, bachelor, masters, or doctor’s degree in Biblical subjects, Christian Education, Divinity, Ministry, or Theology, etc. because as stated above, these terms blend and overlapped in most creeds, books, and schools.
EXPLANATION OF DEGREE PROGRAMS
In the secular field there is a lot of difference between a lawyer, a butcher, a banker, and a dentist.
But in the religious field what is the difference between Divinity, Theology, Ministry, Pastoral Counseling, etc.? Actually, they overlap, for the Bible
is the main textbook for them all. We have.
6 Hon. Dr. Degrees
A total of 55 different certificates which is more than most schools
larger than us. But we only have seven different courses at this time.
(More on the way)
So when you take one of our courses, you may choose any degree on
an appropriate level recommended for that course.
Some have asked, “What is the difference between a degree in
Pastoral Counseling and one in Christian Counseling?” Well, one is for
a Pastor and the other is someone who is not a Pastor.
Counseling is meeting together with a person and spending a season
with them in detailed discussion to personally consult, advise, guide,
and admonish them with the Word of God. We need to do a lot of
listening, but not just listen.
A degree in counseling AND COMMUNICATION would include
more teaching by way of pulpit, audiotapes, videotapes, radio,
television, writing, etc.

The Japan Bible Institute Ministries offers the widest variety of
religious degrees of any school its size in the U.S.A. However, we do
not offer any secular “Arts” (which represents a wide scope of
studies including such subjects as education, human relations,
literature, etc.), or PhD degrees. A Ph.D. doesn’t have to do with the
study of philosophy. It is awarded for study in many fields such
as Communications, Management, Education, Human Relations, etc.
and is not necessarily considered a religious degree, (But there can
be exceptions.) so up to the directors of THE JAPAN BIBLE
HONORARY DOCTORIAL DEGREE PROGRAM

of the Gospel.

USE OF YOUR TITLE
Only about 5% of ministers in major cities have Doctor Degrees—but it’s rapidly increasing.
If you receive a Doctorate from The Japan Bible Institute Ministries, you have a legitimate right to use the title in your public life either before or
after your name, such as: Dr. Joe Smith, Joe Smith, DTh., or Rev. Dr. Joe Smith. You are honestly and ethically entitled to use your title on your business cards, letterhead, brochures, the phone book, road signs, and “Public Service Announcements” in the newspapers, if you so choose.
It’s only reasonable and proper for others to address and introduce you as “Doctor so and so…” Your degree will often win you instant respect from most dignified people, but will sometimes provoke jealousy from a few folks. They may mumble, “Ah that degree doesn’t mean anything.” But it does! It means you have spent hundreds of hours studying hundreds of Bible verses and answering hundreds of questions correctly!
So don’t be too shocked if someone discredits you, The Japan
Bible Institute Ministries, our Accrediting Association, and all Education
in general. Just remember II Timothy 3:12. After all, respect or
disrespect is just someone’s opinion—whether it’s based on facts or
not. Sometimes when folks judge others, they are really just
judging themselves at the same time.
COMPARE THE COST
A low average cost would be over $1,300 for a Bach. $1,600 for a Mas.
and $1,800 for a Doc.
OUR NOMINAL PRICES
Perhaps you already knew what a degree could cost, and that many schools simply price their degrees above what the average student
can afford. Why should a school charge more than is necessary for
its regular operation and reasonable growth projections? The cost of
a degree or the amount of time involved does not necessarily increase
the quality of education. So, why pay an exorbitant fee for the very
same degree that you can get elsewhere for much less money?
The goal of The Japan Bible Institute Ministries is to provide students
with the finest Biblical education, at the lowest possible cost. Thus,
we have deliberately priced our degrees very low, because we think
we can do more good for more people this way. Our
educational philosophy and methods are not unique, but in the matter
of finances we are unique. The Japan Bible Institute offers the
best investment you’ll ever find. Following are our exceptionally low fees.
