Q. I do not have an undergraduate degree and yet I feel called to the ministry. Is there a program for me?

A. Yes, the Diploma in Pastoral Studies and Leadership is designed for mature students (i.e. over 30 years of age) lacking an undergraduate degree, but with an extensive church background who wish to train for professional pastoral ministry.

Q. Can I complete my degree through Distance Learning?

A. Currently, we do not offer our degrees through Distance Learning, however Heritage Seminary offers a number of graduate distance learning courses produced by the Institute of Theological Studies (ITS) in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Well-known evangelical teachers from around the world have developed these high-quality course packs.

Q. May I study for a Master’s degree at Heritage as a part-time student?

A. Yes. Approximately two-thirds of our students study part-time to allow themselves the opportunity to continue in other professions or ministry, and/or to work at the pace at which they are most comfortable.
