Modular & Degree Completion Programs

The Modular & Degree Completion Programs are non-traditional programs specifically designed for adults who want to complete a Bachelor of Religious Education (BRE) degree but who are unable to attend traditional semester education programs.

Full-time undergraduate education is made possible for adults because of its unique design. Each course consists of one four-hour evening class per week for five weeks supplemented by 14–18 hours of guided independent study per week. This format gives you essentially the same time involvement as a traditional schedule.

The program’s goal is to integrate Christian faith, learning and living in a meaningful and practical way. An important component of these programs is the Directed Research Project comprised of academic instruction and individual advising by a qualified professional. You will choose from one of the following areas of interest: Educational Ministries, Intercultural Studies, Pastoral Studies or Youth Ministry.
