NTS offers courses via a variety of flexible delivery systems which allow students to complete coursework or potentially a full degree without coming to Kansas City. Each delivery system has its advantages. Traditional, semester-long (14-week) courses offer the most face-time with professors and fellow students. Residential students who live in the Kansas City area enjoy the most options in course offerings and delivery systems. However, modular intensive, online, and video conference courses allow you to work on your degree and in a ministry context without having to move/come to Kansas City.
Overview of Delivery Systems
Face to Face Courses
Includes 1-week intensive modular courses and traditional semester-long courses on the Kansas City campus. Classes meet in the morning, afternoon or evening.
Most often, these courses occur within the 14-week traditional semester. Their requirements and schedules vary. Students in online courses use our virtual learning environment (Moodle) to log on four to five times a week to interact with professors and classmates.
Video Conference Courses
By downloading no-cost software, you are able to enter the classroom in real time to engage fully in the class from your personal computer. Instructions are provided at the time of course selection.
