Course Formats

At this time, all Bexley Seabury courses will be offered in a fully online format through the summer 2021 semester.

Under normal circumstances, Bexley Seabury’s non-residential model of theological education enables us to offer courses in a variety of formats that enable students to remain in their local contexts and to study at a pace that fits their professional and personal responsibilities. We typically offer courses in the following formats:


  • Intensives are held on campus for either three Friday/Saturday weekends in Fall and Spring; or week-long in January and Summer. Students typically have assignments and stay connected online, before, after or in-between sessions on campus.
  • Hybrids blend online teaching and learning (synchronous real-time sessions, asynchronous sessions on your own time, or both) with sessions that meet on campus for one or two weekends in Fall and Spring or fewer than five weekdays in January and Summer.
  • Fully online courses do not require visits to campus. Three-credit courses usually last for the duration of a semester or term. They often include both synchronous (“live” in real time) and asynchronous (on your own time) sessions.
