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

MonicaIt is no small task to choose a topic that will hold enough interest to devote countless hours and hundreds of pages of reading and writing. I have found that topic in researching the tradition of the prayer covering in the Church of the Brethren. This practice piqued my curiosity because of the lack of available writing and discussion about it. For instance, the last time that Annual Meeting/Conference addressed the covering was 1925!
