SCU official press release - April 27, 2010
BETHANY - Southwestern Christian University of Bethany, Oklahoma has recently announced its planned entry into the Tulsa educational market in the fall of 2010. Accredited by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, Southwestern continues to transition from its historical role as a bible college to that of a Christian liberal arts university. Although a primary mission of the institution continues to be that of educating students in a Christian environment, its curriculum is expanding to include an array of business, education, social sciences and arts offerings.
Through a cooperative agreement with Rhema Bible Training Center in Broken Arrow, SCU will be offering four undergraduate degree completion options and two graduate degree concentrations at the RBTC campus. Bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration, Business Leadership, Human and Family Services and Biblical Leadership will be offered in a one-night-per-week format. The Master of Ministry degree with emphasis in either Life Coaching or Leadership will also be available. Depending on previous educational and life experience, students may be able to complete degrees in as few as 16 to 18 months.
According to Dr. Ed Huckeby (former chief administrator at Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow), who began his tenure as President of SCU in January, familiarity with the academic needs in the Tulsa area sparked an interest in providing Christian higher education opportunities to Rhema graduates, as well as other individuals in the Tulsa/Broken Arrow area who have an interest in faith-based higher education. Huckeby has been a well-known civic leader in the Tulsa area for the past decade, having served as the chief administrative officer at Northeastern State University, Broken Arrow.
Southwestern Christian University is a Christian liberal arts institution currently offering an Associate of Arts degree, eighteen Bachelors degree options, and a Master of Ministry degree with five areas of concentration.
