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.
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:
- online courses 
- weekend intensives 
- two-week intensives 
- hybrid courses  - weekend intensive and online (count as half online)
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.
