By doing this, we can help students from all over the world to prepare for modern ministry roles in faith settings.

Benefits of Our Online Seminary Programs

Students choose to enroll in our online seminary degree programs for several reasons. If you are currently juggling family, professional, or personal responsibilities, you can weave your education into your schedule without putting your current life on hold. Synchronous classes allow you to participate in live lectures and class discussions in real-time from the comfort of home. This allows you to absorb the same information and participate in class activities as you would if you were attending in-person classes.

Some of your courses will include asynchronous activities, giving you the flexibility throughout the week to learn according to your schedule. Students use a platform called Moodle, which provides access to course materials, recorded lectures, and communication tools. Even students who are not experts at using technology can easily navigate this user-friendly online platform. For years, we have fine-tuned our approach to online learning to give our students the same level of quality they would expect from a campus-based experience.

Stay Connected No Matter Where You Learn

Students also benefit from convenient collaboration with faculty and peers to help ensure effective learning outcomes. No matter where you live, our faculty and staff are just a few clicks away. Our online courses use video conferencing, which allow you to easily communicate, whether you use a desktop, laptop, or mobile device. This also makes it simple to work in tandem with your classmates when completing collaborative activities.

Through our online programs, we encourage students to exercise their creativity, pursue innovation, and develop leadership skills.

At Central Seminary, our embrace of new technology allows us to prepare the next generation of ministry leaders.

Through our online programs, we encourage students to exercise their creativity, pursue innovation, and develop leadership skills.
