Upcoming courses

Want to explore seminary study?

At AMBS, students may take up to two courses for credit without having been admitted to one of our degree or certificate programs, with a limit of one course per term.

If you are not an admitted student at AMBS and are not enrolled at another seminary, college or university, your first AMBS course for credit is 50% off regular tuition rates. (Grebel and CMU students, see this exception.)

Semester Two, 2021–22

The courses listed below are entry-level courses without prerequisites. See also courses with prerequisites and courses for admitted students only.

If you’d like to take a course, choose the registration form that best applies to you at this link.

Campus or blended courses that are open to auditors are designated below either with “Open to auditors” or “Auditors: consult with instructor.” (Unfortunately, online and hybrid courses cannot be audited.) See also FAQ: Auditing courses.

Courses available at a distance (online)

Jan. 11 – April 29, 2022
Tuition due: Jan. 4, 2022

For online courses, students can do their online coursework at different times that suit their individual schedules and needs. (Some courses may require synchronous learning sessions during which students need to be online at the same time; this is noted in the course information.) All course activities are mediated through an online course management system (Moodle). Students interact with professors and peers through course discussion boards, email, video chats, Google Hangouts or other means. Please note: Online courses cannot be audited.

Courses available both in person and at a distance (campus/blended)

Jan. 11 – April 29, 2022
Tuition due: Jan. 4, 2022

Face-to-face campus courses meet on the AMBS campus in Elkhart, Indiana. Classroom sessions have accompanying assignments outside of each class session. While these courses have online requirements, classroom learning is a central element of the course.

Blended courses are campus courses that students who are at a distance from Elkhart can join via live videoconference during posted class times (Eastern Time).

COVID-19 update: At this time, we are planning for campus classes to meet in person during the 2021–22 academic year. If pandemic conditions require adjustments to delivery formats, we will communicate these to students and instructors. (See also our COVID-19 Update Center for more information.)

Please note audit designations in each course description.
