At Bethel Seminary, we've created programs that work for busy seminary students. We understand that students are at different phases of life that present challenges within their schedules. Our commitment is to provide you with options to meet your demands.

With that in mind, our programs are available through daytime courses, evening courses, or online courses. Choose an academic program for details on the face-to-face or online program options available for your degree.


We offer fully online seminary programs as well as online programs with intensives. Students in online programs with intensives work on assignments, interact with faculty, engage in online discussion, and encourage each other all from a distance. Then, twice a year, they meet together on campus for 1 week of intensive classes.

Face to Face

In residential programs at our St. Paul location, you'll come to campus regularly for classes, research, events, and other activities. We've designed the residential programs at our St. Paul to allow you to balance seminary with commitments at church, home, and in the community. We offer flexible program options with daytime and evening classes to fit your busy schedule.

Sem Together

Whatever program delivery option you choose, you can build a deeper sense of community by taking courses with a consistent group of your peers. The Sem Together cohort track brings together students who start their Bethel studies at the same time and students in the same program. There’s no special application to participate, and Bethel’s enrollment and student success teams are equipped to make sure you register for the right classes. You will never be locked in to your cohort or delivery option; you can easily switch to whatever course options best fit your life, schedule, and preferences.
