FAQ Bible & Ministry

When can I start classes?

Once you are accepted into the program, you may start taking classes when the next seven-week session begins.

Do I need a Bible degree to attend graduate school?

No. Many students pursue the M.A.Min. and M.A.T.S. from diverse backgrounds. An accredited bachelor’s degree is required though.

Can I take online classes, too?

Yes! Many undergraduate classes are now available online, too. Many students take both online and on-site classes to help expedite their studies.

I am not a pastor. Can I still take classes and pursue a Bible & Ministry degree?

Of course. While some students are enrolled in our degree programs in preparation for pastoral ministry, many students have other career goals and see the Bible & Ministry degrees as a way to strengthen their knowledge of Scripture and personal preparation for the future.

There are so many options available today. What makes Bethel’s programs unique?

Perhaps we’re a still a bit old school, but we believe in getting to know you as a person. Your experience will connect you with caring professors who will take a vested interest in your goals, as well as like-minded classmates who will become friends and ministry partners long after you graduate.
