Distance Learning Masters of Divinity (M.Div.) Program
ITC’s distance learning program delivers an online education with the same rigor and quality as classes offered on campus. Online courses are conducted in asynchronous lessons where students can engage in discussions, assignments and other forms of course work any time their schedules permit. In some courses there may be synchronous course work where the instructor and students meet online at the same time of day. Students must possess adequate technology skills or the willingness to learn technology quickly. ITC offers helpdesk services to students requiring additional help or for trouble shooting advices.
On Campus Classes
Currently ITC allows students to take two thirds (2/3) of the courses towards their MDiv degree online, while one third (1/3) still need to be done on campus. On campus classes can be taken during summer terms, and during special one-week enhanced terms prier to Fall and Spring semesters.
