Multi-Year Program

Three, Four, and Five-Year Curriculum Plan

Curriculum for all students beginning matriculation on or after Fall Semester.  Online students who have completed at least one course prior to Fall 2007 have a choice to be grandfathered into previous degree requirements or to go with the new curriculum.

Note:  The first number indicates the number of years the student plans to take to graduate, the second number indicates which year the student should take a particular course.  (e.g. Spiritual Formation should be taken by all entering students their first fall term, regardless of whether they plan to graduate in three, four or five years).

 

Theological Research and Writing would be taken the first year for those students planning to graduate in five years.
