Learning More about the Bible

If you’ve considered pursuing further education focused on the Bible or ministry, Moody Bible Institute Distance Learning might be right for you. Dr. Bryan O’Neal, vice president of MDL, shares more about online education programs available through Moody.

Q. I can’t go back to school full time. Can I still enroll in a Moody course?
A. Sure! Moody offers courses and undergraduate and graduate degree programs online with a flexible schedule.

Q. What if I want to take one class?
A. You can enroll as a nondegree student. If you decide to go further in your studies, up to 18 credit hours can later be applied to a Moody degree program. The courses you take through Moody Bible Institute Distance Learning are fully accredited, which means they are generally transferable to similarly accredited institutions.

Q. What is one class you would recommend for someone just starting to get serious about Bible study?
A. Courses such as Interpreting Scripture or The Story and Structure of the Bible would be beneficial to everyone who wants to go deeper in their study of God’s Word.

Q. What class or program will help me be a better leader at my church?
A. Moody offers an online degree, the Bachelor of Science in Ministry Leadership, as well as a certificate program in Biblical Leadership. Any of our programs centered in Scripture and ministry skills will enhance your ministry.

Q. Are Moody’s classes expensive?
A. Moody’s current tuition rates are $340 per credit hour, which compare very favorably with private institutions.

Q. Will I be able to handle the workload if it has been years since I sat in an actual classroom?
A. Our faculty work hard to help you with this transition, and the class Foundations of Learning is designed to help students succeed. Most students tell us that their normal work and home responsibilities have equipped them to manage their time and focus to do well in the structure of online classes.

Q. Will I need special equipment?
A. You need reliable access to a computer with online access and reasonably up-to-date software.

Q. What’s the next step of Bible education with Moody?
