why CHOOSE carey?


CAREY believes that our educational mission is to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills to live more intentionally, thoughtfully and faithfully in the church and the world. Our goal is to help our students engage their culture and circles as thoughtful Christians, to be lifelong learners and to be effective workers in their local churches and communities.


 
 
WHY STUDY AT CAREY?

Today’s Christian ministry has seen a decline in qualified and capable leaders. But Carey doesn’t believe that God has stopped calling women and men into ministry. Seminary is often far from home, and potential students would have to consider uprooting their lives to have access to a school that offers theological education. On top of that, graduate studies can be costly. Students who graduate with debt are often limited in where and how they can serve while they are paying off their debt.

How is Carey addressing the problem of accessible theological education?

MODULAR PROGRAM PATHWAYS

Our programs are built on a modular credit model in which one level can build on another, enabling the learner to progress towards a higher degree at their own pace. This model gives our students the flexibility to stack their choice of foundational courses, program requirement courses and elective courses to earn a diploma or to prepare a pathway to a higher academic degree.

Here’s an example of how the program pathways for a Diploma in Christian Ministry can build towards a Master of Divinity or vice versa;

All of Carey’s foundational courses run once a year, while our program requirement and elective courses rotate every 3-4 years based on instructor availability. This means that you can register for courses anytime during the year and your program pathway will still be on track. In general, it is wise to plan to take required courses early in the program to leave greatest fl exibility for electives and specialization further along.
