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

We give you the option to earn many of our seminary degrees through our residential programs. In these programs, you'll take classes face-to-face at our St. Paul campus.

St. Paul

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.

San Diego

We are no longer accepting students into our San Diego programs.

Bethel University is a private institution and it is approved to operate by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. More information such as performance fact sheets for each of our programs, our annual reports, or our catalog can be found on our California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education accreditation site.
