90-Day Accelerated Degree programs

Our 90-day accelerated programs for B.A., M.A., or Ph.D. are supported by a PLA: Prior Learning Assessment similar to that being used by major colleges and universities.

***

Today most colleges and universities are providing the great benefit of PLA: Prior Learning Assessments, for their more experienced students, to translate lifetime learning experience into credits to be legitimately applied to degree programs. This translates into huge savings in both time and educational expense. NCU is also providing this great benefit to all students.

NCU uses the MOODLE online educational management system, which is the same system used by major universities worldwide.

Northwestern Christian University online programs offer both Undergraduate and Graduate studies in a several Christian majors, which can be completed in as little as 90-days through PLA: Prior Learning Assessment, Life, educational and ministry experience as well as core curriculum, educational modules, thesis or dissertation.

Bachelor, Master, and Doctorate Degree Programs are offered with courses that build foundational blocks to allow students to easily move not only from one course to another, but also provide the incentive to move on towards the next level of degree studies after fulfilling core course requirements.

The courses are structured in a simple format to provide students basic understanding of the main principles allowing the students to move through their courses, and in turn their degree programs at a faster pace. Since online students study independently at their own pace, the Moodle online educational management system allows those that are motivated to complete their studies much sooner than in traditionally controlled programs.

There are four degree program majors available for a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. through the 90-day accelerated program at NCU. The majors are: Pastoral Ministry, Biblical Studies, Theology, Christian Counseling, Christian Education and Christian Education Administration.

A Bachelor degree can be earned in 90-days or more depending on PLA: Prior Learning Assessment, your skill set and time management ability. A Master's or Doctorate can be earned in 90-Days or less depending on your skill set and time management ability. Depending on your PLA: Prior Learning Assessment, a Masters can be completed by Thesis only and a Doctorate may be earned by Dissertation only.

 

Although you study at your own pace in our distance education programs, their is always access to a personal academic advisor that will assist you when needed.

online_seminary_studentsStudents will work from the Moodle, a state of the art Course Management System used by major colleges and universities around the world. Course instructions, textbooks, and required assignments are provided for each course through the Moodle. Students even upload their completed assignments directly to the Moodle making it a secure way to submit course work. No need to postal mail your completed work, simply upload to the Moodle system.

 

NCU accelerated programs allow students with life, ministry and educational experience, who complete appropriate learning modules, essays, thesis or dissertation, to earn their Bachelor (B.A.) Master's (M.A. and Doctorate (Ph.D.) degrees through Northwestern Christian University in as little as 90- days.

This Christian Graduate Program allows students that have completed previous studies in compatible courses to complete their degree programs in as little as 90 days.
