Options and flexibility abound in our modular Th.M. We designed this program with the busy pastor or ministry leader in mind. Each year, some of courses will be offered as one-week intensives including some offered in January and summer.
Digital Live courses are semester-long courses that meet online. They typically combine live online sessions with asynchronous learning.
Independent study courses are also available. One way to construct these is to build them around pastors’ conferences sponsored by the Gordon-Conwell Institute or the annual meetings of the Evangelical Homiletics Society.
No. The modular program does not have to be completed in one year, but it is possible for full-time participants to do so. Part-time participants have up to four years to finish the degree.
Residential students must take three courses per semester in order to maintain full-time status and housing eligibility (if living on campus). The degree is normally completed in one year.
