In a hybrid course more than half of the course hours are taught in the traditional classroom format on Westminster’s campus, with less than half of the course hours taught in a distance education format. Normally course hours taught on Westminster’s campus are taught in intensive evening and weekend sessions. Since more than half of the course hours are taught in the traditional classroom format, hybrid courses are considered “on campus” courses.

All hybrid courses may be applied towards the M.A.C. degree program and the Certificate programs. All hybrid courses except PT 173 may be applied to the M.A.R. and M.Div. degree programs. PTC 261 Human Personality and PT 173 Biblical Interpretation apply to the M.A.U.M. degree program.

Students taking hybrid courses must have regular, high-speed internet access. A student email address is provided by Westminster. Westminster recommends that students use a newer computer for hybrid courses.

All hybrid courses require a standard $100 course materials fee per course in addition to course tuition.
