Earn Your Bachelor of Science in Midwifery  

Coming Fall of 2023!

Midwives are an integral part of worldwide healthcare systems. Midwives partner with women to provide safe care throughout pregnancy, birth, and the newborn period.

According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), midwives could play an integral part in preventing up to 2/3 of maternal and newborn deaths. Earning a degree in midwifery will equip you with these life-saving skills while enabling you to impact families with the love of Jesus.

Why Should I Study Midwifery?

There is a unique beauty a Christian midwife holds within the context of cross-cultural missions. There are no cultural, religious, or political barriers to expressing the compassion and mercy demonstrated through this relational role.

Completing this degree program will prepare you to take the North American Registry of Midwives (NARM) board exam and earn a US Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) certificate. The CPM is currently recognized in most U.S. states and opens doors to obtain state licenses and privileges to practice in many countries around the world.

BGU undergraduate degrees include a double major in Bible & Theology, providing you with a firm Biblical foundation to compliment your midwifery career.
