The three-year track is much more intense and demanding but certainly possible for the determined student. The coursework can also be completed on a part-time schedule, with the requirement that all credits are completed within 10 years. Contact our admissions team to discuss your goals and determine the right pace for you.
All class formats deliver the same high-quality course material taught by our faculty. On-campus programs require students to take courses at our campus in Glenside, Pennsylvania. Online programs deliver courses through state-of-the-art digital platforms and are designed to be more flexible with scheduling.
Our vision is to make Westminster‘s online programs both accessible and affordable for the global church. While scholarships are not yet available for online programs, we are raising funds to offer them soon. In the meantime, we encourage all students to seek support from their local church and ministry network, and apply to outside scholarship opportunities.
