Live Lectures Meet Online Classes

We are continuing to create new ways for distance students to have increased access to live lectures and Q&A with Kansas City based faculty. In short, where there were few options for distance students to have live interaction with faculty who teach on-campus, we are now bringing more of our faculty to all of our students. Online+ courses are available to residential and online students.

What is Online+?

Online+ is a synchronous, live, video-based (Zoom) course that meets for eight weeks during the Spring D Term, February 14-April 7, 2022. The courses will feature eight live lectures from MBTS and Spurgeon College faculty plus additional Q&A sessions.
