BSK’s approach to distance education is warmly relational and academically challenging. In live Zoom sessions you will interact with professors and fellow students. For each course our online system supports learning beyond the classroom. BSK also offers full access to the Digital Theological Library, allowing serious research from anywhere you have a connection. Classes meet just once per week, making scheduling easier for busy lives. Contextual ministry is also a part of the M.Div. program, providing supervised ministry experience.
Building relationships with faculty, staff and fellow students is vital to our approach to theological education. Our partnerships provide a rich and diverse community in which to learn. We are the official seminary of the National Baptist Convention of America, predominately Black 3.5-million-member denomination. BSK, founded in 2002, has been affiliated with CBF since its birth. These partnerships provide significant networking opportunities for students and alumni.
Enroll for 3 courses one semester and 2 another — the choice is yours. BSK’s Master of Divinity program requires a total of 75 hours, or choose a 9 hour certificate to get started or as continuing education.
BSK offers classes all day Monday, and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
