Connections

Our distance education program, Connections, allows all but 27 credits of a Master of Arts or a Master of Divinity degree to be earned either online, or at other locations than Bethany's campus, following the current Association of Theological Schools (ATS) accrediting guidelines.Classroom

This means that our rigorous and fully-accredited graduate-level education track does not require you to relocate to earn your Master's degree. The curriculum combines online learning with Bethany's close-knit learning community during intensive sessions on campus.

 

Connections courses are offered in the following formats:

 

In addition, traditional and block face-to-face courses can be taken at Bethany, at Bethany's Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center (PA) campus, via cross-registration with our sister schools, or even transferred from other seminaries.

Master of Theology '04

JoshWhen I say I've attended seminary, the conversation quickly diverts, "So where are you pastoring?" To which I reply, "Well, I'm not serving a congregation, I'm getting my PhD." I'm sure that most persons attending seminary will be asked that same question regardless of his/her vocational goals. The truth is that anyone can attend Bethany: minister-in-training, curious Christians, and yes, even those who plan to pursue doctoral study.
