Don’t leave the ministry context where God has placed you! Knox Theological Seminary, an ATS-accredited graduate school, is now offering a Master of Arts (Biblical and Theological Studies) and a Master of Arts (Christian and Classical Studies) fully online along with an array of other online courses that may be applied to one or more of our accredited degree programs. We will meet you where you are at in your ministry training. Master of Divinity students can take up to 60 hours of coursework online. Doctor of Ministry students can take up to three courses or nine credit hours through Knox Online. The Knox curriculum is suited for a wide range of individuals desiring to lead and serve in various ministries–from pastor and academic, to Christian teacher, missionary and layperson.
Knox has entered into a dynamic partnership with Logos Bible Software, the largest developer in Bible software and a worldwide leader in multilingual electronic publishing. What does that mean for you? You will have an online classroom and a theological library at your fingertips, and both delivered via the latest in technological applications. So whether you are at a coffee shop or a ministry retreat, you will have access to the most innovative Bible research tools and teaching available. At Knox, you will be taught how to harness Logos for advanced research, biblical hermeneutics, sermon preparation, and how to best leverage it as a resource for a lifetime of ministry.
We are combining a robust theological curriculum with cutting-edge technology and powerful research tools to present the finest and most comprehensive seminary education for today’s leaders in modern ministry.
Knox Online is constructed with three primary elements: a video-based lecture series, a Moodle-based learning management system, and a web-driven teleconferencing system. These three elements, combined together, along with vital student-to-student interaction and professor access, have produced an online classroom infrastructure. Within the Knox Online classroom, students will be able to view professionally edited course lectures via video downloads on a weekly schedule, participate in online student-to-student forums designed to foster a learning community through intentional built-in activities, take quizzes and examinations, and speak live with the professor and course facilitators through strategically planned web teleconferences. Online classes are offered in eight-week terms and there are typically monthly starts. We will monitor a student’s progress to ensure that no one gets behind.
The purpose of this combination of technology is to replicate the classroom experience of peer/instructor interaction. Likewise, the design also intentionally employs an adult-based learning pedagogy that will provide students with an interactive learning environment. Students can immediately put into practice and apply what they are learning in their ministry context. Classes are accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
“My experience with Knox Online has been very positive. I am a full-time pastor and stay-at-home dad, so a program that allows me to finish my master’s degree from home is perfect. I don’t feel cheated from not being in the actual classroom because the recorded lectures bring the classroom to me. The forums allow me to interact with other students, so that we can learn and grow together. I would highly recommend Knox Online for those who want to pursue their higher education, but also want the flexibility to continue to do what God has called them to do.” ~Ryan
“Knox Theological Seminary Online gives me the flexibility I need as a mother, writer, homeschool teacher, Sunday School teacher, and speaker to further my theological education. The online professors, dean, and registrar are all supportive and easily accessible to help with any issues that arise. The course content is challenging, edifying, and through the work of the Holy Spirit life changing. If you are considering a seminary education, I highly recommend Knox.” ~Angela
“This is already turning into the most profound educational experiences that I could have ever imagined!” ~ Ken (Retired Police Chief)
