Statement of Educational Effectiveness

Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary students complete established requirements before the faculty admits them to or advance them to candidacy for AMBS degrees. Students pursuing a Master of Divinity degree complete the equivalent of one year of study, including several designated courses, before the faculty admits them to that degree program. Students pursuing a Master of Arts degree complete the equivalent of one year of study, including several designated courses, before they advance to candidacy for the degree.

The seminary measures educational effectiveness by accounting for students who are admitted to or advanced to candidacy for a degree and complete the degree program or continue to make progress toward completion. The following report shows students who were admitted to degrees or advanced to candidacy for degrees in the previous five years (spring 2009 through spring 2014).

This report represents 147 students; 69% of these students studied or are studying full-time; 31% studied or are studying part-time.
