Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary is pleased to offer online courses that meet the needs of different learners. All online courses taken for credit may be used to complete a degree program if the course is required for the selected program and the student has been admitted to the selected program.
1. High School Jump Start Courses
High School Students may begin to take online courses while still in high school. If a student takes all of these courses and enrolls in a Jump Start class each summer, he or she can enter Faith with 18 hours of credit already completed—the equivalent of one full semester. Homeschooled students and students in Christian schools also have an option for dual credit.
2. LIfelong Learner Courses
Individuals who are not in a degree program at Faith may also enroll in our online courses. This intensive Bible training will be of invaluable help to lay people who serve in ministries such as Sunday School teachers, deacons, youth leaders, and children's workers.
3. Seminary Courses
Students in the Master of Arts in Biblical Studies and Master of Arts in Theological Studies programs will also benefit from Faith Online Learning. These students will need to take only four weeks of on-campus classes (two classes each week) and can then complete their required courses online. Master of Divinity students may take some elective courses online.
4. Endorsement Courses
Current Faith students in the Elementary Education program and individuals presently teaching in Christian schools can earn Iowa reading endorsements through Faith Online Learning.
