Seminary education via online courses can be enticing. However, when compared to an on-campus education, the return on invest is often significantly reduced. The deficiency lies in the fact that students are unable to experience the formative power of the total package of education—time with faculty (both in and out of the classroom) and interaction with fellow students ("iron sharpening iron"). After all, education is "caught" as well as "taught." And that requires a personal investment on our part toward you.
At the same time, TMS realizes that occasionally, family issues, selling your home, or wrapping up business obligations inhibit your ability to enroll as soon as you'd like. If that is the case, maybe we can arrange for a class or two for you by DVD. The Admissions Office would be delighted to discuss this option together with you.
