Complete Your Degree Online @ MCC
Learning in the 21st century is available any time, any place. Manhattan Christian College has made a commitment to global ministry leadership training. MCC ’s accredited distance education degrees in Biblical Leadership and Management and Ethics are designed to provide busy adults the opportunity and flexibility to complete their degrees with the same regionally accredited biblical education that our on-campus students experience.
These degrees are designed to enhance your current ministries and careers and help you complete your bachelors degree. Adult students who have a minimum of 40 transferable hours can start throughout the year to complete their degree. Each course meets for eight weeks and earns three semester hours of credit.
Online students may take any two of the distance education courses during each 8-week term, and there are two 8-week terms per semester. These terms begin in August, October, January, March, and June. Generally, students spend an average of 14-15 hours per week on course work. This may vary depending upon how quickly you read and complete your assignments.
Who should complete a degree through MCC Online? Anyone who wants to complete a bachelor's degree to support:
- serving in local churches as staff, elders, deacons, or teachers who want/need a biblical, ministry-focused degree
- a need to finish a management degree with an strong biblical/ethical emphasis
- individuals preparing for work with a missions team
- or anyone wanting to improve their ability to study the Bible and share the Gospel
Individuals may also want to take particular courses to increase biblical knowledge or provide additional training for their current career (e.g. teachers in ACSI Christian schools or business professionals needing academic credentials) as non-degree students.
The primary goal of our programs is to not only provide excellent career training but more importantly to improve your ability to study and understand the Bible, and apply proper principles of interpretation to any biblical text. Our curriculum is designed to provide those sent into a lost world a thorough knowledge of the Bible and a sound understanding of theology necessary for spiritual leadership in the ministry at all levels - regardless of your chosen profession.
Another option for those who do not wish to complete a full bachelor's degree is our Certificate of Biblical Leadership. This 21-hour certificate program may be perfect for lay ministers and those in ministry positions that do not require a full bachelors degree. MCC's online program is both flexible and affordable.
Applications for both degree programs for the next available term:
The Spring 2014 term begins January 21. Application deadline is January 10, 2014.
