Master of Biblical Studies Online

The Master of Biblical Studies can be completed entirely online. VBTS offers a continuous rotation of select courses from the resident program through a variety of engaging and interactive formats.

The majority of the online classes are video live-streamed through VBTS's UStream Channel. The online student can watch the lectures live and participate via a chat forum, or the online student can also watch the recordings of the lectures at a later time. In the delivery of these courses, VBTS professors might also employ any of the following methods: discussion forums, peer critiques, directed reading/written assignments, papers, and quizzes. Students log on to Populi, a web-based learning management system, to access any needed resources, participate in the class, and upload any completed assignments.
