One Week Courses

One week intensive courses allow students to study a single subject and complete a course that is normally spread over an entire semester in a 1-week format (Monday to Friday, morning and afternoon).

This format makes study possible for some who work fulltime, but who are able to schedule a week off in order to attend classes. Additionally, distance students can meet the residency requirement for our ministry degrees by coming for a week at a time, rather than have to leave their workplace or ministry setting and relocate to Cochrane.

Such an approach to teaching also opens the door for the school to invite topnotch scholars at other schools, who could not otherwise be on our campus. It can feel like the pace of learning is fast, but it is also rich and rewarding!
