Courses at The Chapel may be held during the day 8 a.m. – noon or 1 p.m. – 5 p.m. It is possible a 1-3-1 format (one month, three days on-site, one month project) may be utilized. Students may be able to complete the program in five semesters. Courses may be taken elsewhere, including those on the Bethel campus, and transferred into this program.
A maximum of 10 years is allowed to complete the M.Min. degree and a maximum of ten years is allowed to complete the M.A.T.S. degree. If either degree is not completed by the end of the stated time limit, additional time for completing the degree may be granted on the basis of an appeal filed with the graduate academic advisor and the program director. If approved, up to two additional years may be granted to complete the requirements of either degree.
