Flexibility: Bethany Has Many Educational Opportunities
Bethany offers courses in nine different formats, and focused for a variety of purposes. Whether you're completing a degree or certificate, pursuing spiritual questions, meeting district ordination requirements, or engaging theological studies in general, there is a course for you, many accessible to those at a distance! Here is a listing of courses coming up, arranged by format:
Bethany also offers courses that meet district requirements for licensing and ordination  in the Church of the Brethren.
Bethany welcomes all persons who are interested in continuing their education.
We encourage lay leaders, retired persons, business folks, and others who wish to dig deeper into the wonder and wisdom, world and Word of God. You do not need to be admitted into a degree program to participate in a seminary course--as an occasional student, you may take any course that interests you.
Application, Admission, Registration
To take any graduate course, a student must apply  and be admitted as one of the following:

Once students have been admitted, they must submit an enrollment deposit in order to register for classes.
