seminary modules

semina moduleSince 1986 Faith Baptist Theological Seminary has been involved with the advanced training of men and women for the studying of God's Word on the next level. One of the benefits of studying at FBTS is our unique module format which allows you to stay with your current full-time ministry or take a minimal amount of time away from work and family while earning a complete degree (Masters of Arts in Religion, Pastoral Studies, Biblical Studies, or Theological Studies can all be entirely earned by module) or earning credit towards a Masters of Divinity Degree.

Our one week module courses cover in a concentrated form the materially normally given throughout an entire semester. Classes usually meet in the morning or afternoon allowing you time to study throughout the week as you take the course. Homework for the class is assigned during the week but not due until much later in the semester, as in a traditional classroom schedule.

Hundreds of pastors, teachers, missionaries, chaplains, as well as Sunday school teachers, deacons, businessmen, and others interested in taking an indepth look at the Scriptures have studied at FBTS and are now using their training to make an eternal impact in the lives of others.

Requirements for Graduation

You may complete the M.A.R. or M.A. degrees by modules. Part of the M.Div. curriculum requirements are offered only in traditional, semester-length courses, but you may complete some of the curriculum requirements in modular format. If you are in the M.A.R. or M.A. programs, you must take at least three modules that are taught by members of the resident faculty. After completing nine credits, you must apply to a degree program and be assigned a resident faculty advisor. Students who fail to apply to a degree program will not be allowed to put additional credits (i.e., beyond the nine-credit limit) toward any degree program. Therefore, you should apply to a degree program when or before you reach the nine-credit limit.

Cost

Modules are $283 per credit hour (through June 30, 2012). Payment is due on the first day of the module class.
