HOW OUR DEGREE PROGRAM WORKS
Here Is Online
Seminary Education at Its Best
A traditional seminary, college, bible college or university is concerned with classes you have attended and credits you have earned. The traditional school assumes that you are young (18 to 24 years old) and cannot learn without the archaic yet structured traditional method of education, which requires institutional training and physical class attendance.
Although a online degree program might be an excellent choice for the self-disciplined young high school graduate, it is especially suited for the person who is already involved in a career, family and other aspects of adult life which results in a minimum of time being available for actually attending classes. Achieving your education through a online degree program allows you to be the controlling factor as to allotment of your time. You will not have a set schedule, therefore, you will be able to study and complete more coursework by doing course work at any hour of the day or night that you decide to study. Is this modern day concept starting to make sense to you? It has been predicted that someday almost all education will take place in the home through online educational programs.
What about credit for prior educational and experiential knowledge?
Northwestern Theological Seminary is first concerned with what you have already learned and experienced, followed by what you will need to learn to achieve a level of understanding and competence that qualifies you for your selected degree. This process allows for credit to be applied relative to your prior learning and experiential knowledge. This results in saving you substantial time. We do not believe that you should have to waste valuable time studying in areas for which you already possess adequate knowledge. Many of our courses use the books of the Bible as text books. If you have been a student of the Bible and have read and studied the books of the Bible on scholarly level, you will qualify for credit in many courses requiring study of a Bible book as that subject's text book. Those who have done a thorough study of all 66- books of the Protestant Bible, will be at a tremendous advantage, credit wise, toward earning their seminary degrees.
Northwestern Theological Seminary assumes that you are capable of undertaking the task and have the maturity and self-discipline to follow through. Once we receive your application, we will complete your evaluation and work with you to develop an easy to follow, educational plan for the attainment of your degrees. After you send your application, If accepted into Northwestern Theological Seminary, you will be contacted concerning your time saving educational plan with in just 72-hours of our receiving your application by internet transmission.
Make Sure It Will Take You Where You Want To Go
Although a degree from a online degree program may be accepted as equal to a degree from a prestigious traditional school, the student should determine, before undertaking any Northwestern Theological Seminary course, whether or not the degrees will be accepted by the organization in which recognition is sought.
If the student anticipates earning a Bachelor degree or Master's degree from a online educational program and then using that degree for admission to a traditional graduate school, one should ask written assurance from that school for acceptance of the degree.
THE GOOD NEWS IS: Many traditional schools, including most Ivy League universities, will consider accepting online degrees for admission to graduate studies.
