This course introduces students to the history, doctrine and background features of those books of the Bible that were written prior to the incarnation of Jesus Christ. Our primary goal in this course is to help students become better readers of the Old Testament. Every reader of the Bible is an interpreter of the Bible. We want to help you become an active interpreter by describing central doctrines, and some of the historical, geographic and cultural factors, which figure into the formation of the He brew Scriptures we designate the "Old Testament.”

If we see statistics as a process, one that takes us from the design of an experiment and the collection of data to providing sound analysis and inference, then the following course work will allow us to get from a research question (or objective) to that desired end (the answer or conclusions). Elementary Statistical Methods provides an introduction to basic Statistical process and procedures to include data collection, descriptive statistics, correlation, and least-squares regression, probability, discrete probability functions, the normal probability distribution, inference from samples to populations, and hypothesis testing.
