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.

Brian Mackie
Master of Divinity '07

BrianSometimes it takes looking back to see God's leading in life. I graduated from Bethany in May 2007 and realized that God led my entire theological training. In the summer of 2002, however, it was a little tougher to see where it was going.

I realized my call to full-time ministry and knew it was to journey into the educational training part of my call. My campus pastor and I had several conversations about this next step. I fasted and prayed and sought the Lord but had no clear answer by the end of the fast. As I was preparing to break my fast, the Lord asked me, "What is the desire of your heart?" I replied, "Oral Roberts University."
