FCC offers six academic programs: the Certificate is a one-year program, the Associate of Arts and Associate of Applied Science are two-year programs, the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science are four-year programs or four-and-a-half-year programs; and the Bachelor of Theology is a five-year program. Each program has been designed to meet specific needs in a Christian's personal life and in the leadership of the Church. Study of the Word of God occupies a position of prominence in all of these programs of study.
An academic program at FCC is a comprehensive curriculum of academic and non-academic requirements for a degree, including courses from the three divisions of study (Division of Bible, Division of Humanities, and Division of Ministry).
FCC is licensed to offer six academic programs that fulfill the purpose of the institution to "conduct a course of study to educate men and women for Christian service, to provide a program of instruction on the college level, to grant appropriate degrees, and to serve as a resource to the churches, especially in Florida."
The minimum total required hours are noted for each:
A major is a concentration of at least 30 semester hours of courses leading to specified academic and vocational competencies appropriate to the college's degree programs. The hours in a major may be divided into a core and a specialization (e.g., Ministry major). Each ministry major is further divided into ministry specializations.
The courses are distributed appropriately throughout the student's program, with approximately 10% taken the Freshman and Sophomore years and the balance taken during the Junior and Senior years.
The College offers courses in four majors: Bible, Humanities, Christian Ministries, and Christian Education Ministries.
All degree-seeking students major in Bible. Students enrolled in the B.A. or B.S. programs also must declare one of the two ministry majors. The LEAD Bachelor of Science is further explained under the LEAD Bachelor of Science on campus or LEAD Bachelor of Science online.
A specialization is a narrowly focused cluster of courses within a selected major. A specialization complements the core courses in the major, developing the major to achieve a specified outcome. Required hours vary somewhat between specializations, but all are a minimum of 20 credits.
