Course Format & Schedule
Courses are offered in a format that allows those outside the Spokane area to attend. Most classes are offered in a blended-semester format that meets monthly and engages online between class sessions.
Much of the coursework and communication with instructors and fellow students takes place via email and web-based course management and is designed to enhance each student's learning while building and enriching community. This design allows for optimal learning and community engagement.
As a graduate studies in theology student, you can maintain your own pace, although most students choose to complete the program in two to three years by attending part time. It is possible to complete the degree more quickly by attending full time.
Please see the 2017-18 Graduate Studies in Theology Course Schedule for specific dates and times.
