There are three course formats offered in the Graduate Theology Program.

  • The Traditional Classroom where courses are offered on six Saturdays a semester or twelve Tuesdays or Thursdays a semester in a classroom
  • Hybrid Classes  meeting on site two times a semester with all other work done online
  • Online Classes for which all work is done online

In order to provide as much interaction as possible between the student and the professor utilizing the online formats, instructors will post many items such as lectures, videos, discussions, and other presentations so as to engage the class.  Students may also engage each other in dialogue.  Access to the professor is a high priority in all of the formats.

Easy Listening Option

For those who wish to experience theological learning without the normal academic commitment of completing assignments, there is an "Easy-Listening" option offered at a cost of only $50 per semester hour.  Participants must have the appropriate background for graduate theology.  Registration is on a space-available basis and must meet with the approval of the program director.  Easy listening is appropriate for non-matriculated students as a first-time experience, for those fulfilling theology prerequisites, for professional development, and for personal enrichment.
