A: No. A.W. Tozer Theological Seminary is dedicated to meeting the educational needs of today's student. We offer one-week and two-week long Intensive classes on the Redding campus three times a year. We also have some on-line courses.
A: It means that three times a year, classes are offered in one-week and two-week sessions. Students enrolled in this style of course begin their reading and pre-course work at the start of the traditional semester (September, January, and May). About five weeks into the semester (October, February, and June), the student comes to campus and participates in classes with other Tozer students from various parts of the U.S. After the intensive, students have the rest of the semester to finish and submit their coursework.
A: YES! Every degree at Tozer is regionally accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges).
A: Yes. Tozer graduates are being accepted into D.Min. (Doctorate of Ministry) and Ph.D. programs.
A: It depends on your degree. Students usually finish their degree in three to five years. However, they have up eight years to complete their degree.
A: A limited number of students without a bachelor's degree may be admitted on a non-bachelor's exemption. In general, applicants must be at least 35 years of age with significant ministry leadership experience. In such cases, applicants are required to write a 10-page essay on a topic selected by the Dean as demonstration of the capacity for graduate level studies.
“Truth is so vast and mighty that no one is capable of taking it all in and… it requires the whole company of ransomed souls properly to reflect the whole body of revealed truth.
Truth cannot enter a passive mind. It must be received into the mind by an active mental response… God intended that truth should move us to moral action.”
