Educational Effectiveness at Bethany Theological Seminary

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Bethany Theological Seminary equips spiritual and intellectual leaders with an Incarnational education for ministering, proclaiming, and living out God's shalom and Christ's peace in the church and world. This mission statement speaks about the content and outcomes of the graduate degree programs offered at the Seminary. We are committed to providing excellence in education and formation.

Educational EffectivenessBethany works diligently to create an environment for student success. Assessment of student learning is a high priority for our institution. We have developed a variety of tools and practices that allow faculty and staff to review these assessment data to measure the effectiveness of our programs. Some data come from our internal reports; other data come from information gathered by the Association of Theological Schools, one of our accrediting agencies.

Updated on an annual basis, some of these data are presented here as a downloadable PDF to demonstrate the effectiveness of the educational experience at Bethany Theological Seminary.

JenniferWhen my husband, parents, and I arrived at Bethany Theological Seminary for my long-awaited visit, I was giddy, to say the least! My whole life led to that moment and that weekend. I could not believe my dream was coming true! From the moment we arrived, we were treated with the utmost respect and hospitality. Not only did the staff and faculty put together an amazing weekend for me, they welcomed my questions, comments, or concerns we had and did it with complete openness which shined through in every person we visited. Everyone had a genuine interest in me, my husband, and my life. I truly felt like each person wanted to help me be sure this is where I was meant to be. I had the opportunity to sit in several classes, which was an absolutely remarkable and enlightening opportunity that only affirmed how excited I am to sit in those classes myself. In addition, I had the opportunity to visit with current students and recent graduates, getting a true sense of how Bethany affects and changes a person's life.
