Associate Degrees

Grace College Detroit offers two unique two-year associate degrees that can be earned as a commuter student. The General Studies and Biblical Studies degrees provide a quality Christian college education while preparing you to complete a bachelor's degree in the future.

The Henry and Frances Weber School was developed to provide opportunities for students from all backgrounds and income levels to receive a quality, biblically based education. Students attending the Grace College Detroit Weber School earn a two-year associate degree in General Studies, with a concentration in General Business. Students in a General Studies degree receive a little bit of everything from history and business, to politics, arts and communications. Classes meet Monday through Thursday in the mornings.

Grace Opportunities for Adult Learners (GOAL) offers a two-year associate degree in Biblical Studies. Course topics range from the Old and New Testaments to Church history and theology. Students attend classes two nights per week from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m.

An associate degree comes with several benefits:

  • Complete a bachelor’s degree at Grace: Starting your education at The Weber School (A.A. in General Studies or Biblical Studies) allows you to transfer to Grace College's main campus in Winona Lake, Indiana or into the B.S. in Management degree program in the Detroit area. Find out more.
  • Transfer to the school of your choice: Many associate degree programs correspond directly to larger university programs and fulfill about half the credit requirements of a bachelor's degree. Many four-year colleges or universities prefer to accept a candidate with an associate degree instead of one with only some college credit, because degree completion shows that the student can follow through.
  • Earn more money: According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2005, the median lifetime earnings for individuals with associate degrees are 28 percent higher than median lifetime earnings for high school graduates.
