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 Arts '08

SueAbout eight years ago, everywhere I turned, I felt a nudge and heard a voice to study and learn about God. I would hear it in discussions with friends, in sermons, in song, in prayers, and in silence. I wanted to ignore that voice because I had a full-time job in the business world that I enjoyed. However, God's voice never stopped, so I enrolled at Bethany Theological Seminary. It all started as a very personal reason with no expectation of using a degree but simply a way to experience God.
