Online Courses

All online courses are open to students enrolled in one of Garrett-Evangelical’s graduate degrees, certificates, or enrichment programs and most are available for auditing. Enrollment for students wishing to audit is subject to approval by the professor. Students may enroll in these online courses to fulfill part of their degree or program.

Alums wishing to audit an online course should complete the online Alum Auditor Request Form. More information on auditing a course, including costs, can be found here.

Fall 2020 Remote Learning

After careful consideration and planning, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary will be open and remain in remote teaching and learning modalities through the Fall 2020 semester.

As an educational institution, we do not want to assume “business as usual” in the fall, but rather will stay nimble and adaptive to our state and region’s readiness to reopen with sustained capacity to contain COVID-19 infections. As a theological school, we consider this an opportunity for all–especially our prospective, incoming, and returning students–to rise to the challenge of discovering through theological study how God remains active in restoring and renewing our world in such a time as this. This is the time to learn how to lead communities from hurt toward healing, from despondence to generative hope.

We are committed to caring for your health and safety while also providing you with academic excellence, opportunities for discernment and spiritual formation, and a theological education that will transform you so that you can transform the world.
