Mode of Instruction
At Dickerson-Green Theological Seminary, we understand that today's theological students come with diverse needs and commitments. That's why our educational approach is both flexible and integrated. Our instructional method combines the best of both worlds: face-to-face classroom engagement and online learning. This hybrid model isn't a mere amalgamation of two separate methods; rather, it's a harmonious fusion where each component enriches and amplifies the other. In this integrated educational setting, online activities aren't simply supplemental or a replication of in-class lessons. Instead, they serve to deepen and expand upon the in-person experience, offering a more comprehensive and enriching educational journey. This is especially beneficial for clergy members juggling the responsibilities of full-time pastoral duties. Our approach ensures that your academic and spiritual formation can continue unhindered, providing a holistic educational experience tailored to fit your unique calling and life circumstances. Experience a dynamic and accommodating learning environment with us, and see how our blended approach can best serve your theological and ministerial aspirations.
