Two Intakes for Full-Time Students

Part-Time: Designed for busy pastors and church leaders.

The first intake is the January Term Greek courses starting in early January. This enrollment qualifies the student to enter semester 1 courses that begin in February. The second intake, for the MDiv program, is the June Term Hebrew Courses that qualifies MDiv students for semester 2 courses. For the MATS program, the second intake is semester 2 courses that start in August. ARTS strongly encourages all full-time students to enroll in January, if possible, since this will enable the student’s academic program to proceed most optimally.
