Nontraditional programs are ideal for anyone eager to learn but who finds that nonresidential or nondegree programs better meet their needs. We are dedicated to equipping biblical leaders and want everyone to be able to access our world-class education.
All of our degree programs are offered online and provide you tremendous flexibility without compromising your education quality. Additionally, online students located in the United States’ Northeast region have access to pastor-mentors throughout their studies through our Mentored Online Virtual Education (MOVE) initiative.
Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary offers seminary-level studies to anyone who desires a deep, intellectual, and challenging experience in God‘s Word. The Adult Continuing Education Studies are an audit program. As an audit student, you learn alongside members of the student body—same classroom, same course—and have the unparalleled opportunity to sit under Mid-America‘s world-class Bible professors. Any course in the catalog that does not require a prerequisite is available for audit. Audit students are not required to take the exams. The cost for each course is only $50.
To participate in our Seminary Adult Study Series, please contact the Mid-America Admissions office at (901) 751-8453 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
