Garrett’s online degree programs integrate rigorous academic study with virtual and real-world experiences to prepare graduates to address challenges in their congregations, communities, and across academia. All programs require a mix of both synchronous and asynchronous coursework.
“Garrett’s online degree program gave me the flexibility I needed to learn, raise my family, and continue to faithfully serve my community.”
“Garrett’s online program is an answered prayer to my call to ministry. I knew I could not physically be at seminary considering my responsibilities to my family, the community, and my ministry. I also knew that I would need a lot of support from the institution as I am coming from a secular vocation and would need a lot of grace and attention from the professors, advisors, and my peers. I got them all through the program, plus real friends!”
