Residential Graduate Programs

Degrees offered in the residential format are primarily completed through face-to-face courses on Wheaton College’s campus. Students complete their degree as full-time or part-time students. Unless otherwise indicated, all of the doctoral and masters programs follow a residential format. This format offers:

  • more interaction with professors and classmates
  • constant immersion in the learning environment
  • consistent access to the myriad of academic resources and events
  • the opportunity to be involved in the benefits of Wheaton College student life

Part-time Evening Cohort 

The M.A. in Biblical Studies degree is allows those who have to work during the day to complete their degree through night courses. It is offered in a cohort model where students stay together as a group throughout three years of study, taking weekly evening classes, one night per week, and two one-week intensive courses each year. The part-time cohort fosters a strong community of classmates who stay together throughout the program.
