Earn Your Degree from Anywhere.

Earning an advanced degree in ministry can be difficult, especially if you've already launched your ministry career and have personal commitments.

At Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, we provide inventive approaches to education that make it easier for you to attain your goals. Starting with the Fall 2020 semester and going forward, we are moving to a HyFlex approach to the classroom experience. HyFlex means hybrid-flexible, and this course design model combines three different learning modalities into one class. You'll now be able to select the learning modality that best suits your needs.


This option is your typical classroom experience. You'll learn on-campus and in the classroom, and you'll connect face-to-face with faculty and peers. On-Site students still have flexible options like block scheduling and night classes.


If you can't commit to coming to campus for every class period, Live enables you to tune in to class real-time from wherever you are with the use of videoconferencing technology. This opens up our classroom to you whether you live across town, across the country or across the world while still allowing you to interact live with both the faculty and peers!


The most flexible option of HyFlex is called Anytime. With this course delivery format, you do not have to log in at any particular time. You'll watch lectures and course content, complete readings and assignments and interact and engage with faculty and peers in discussion forums anytime during the week. Yet, you'll still be part of the same class, you'll be connected to the community of GRTS, and your professor will know you by name. It's the most flexible option for hardworking ministry professionals who have other vocational or personal commitments.
