3. How much time does a Learn Local Northwest course take?
Not more than binge-watching.
Auditing students simply need to listen to lectures, do the reading and attend the Campus Cohorts every other week. A standard class would offer three hours of lectures per week. Reading assignments vary but you should assume substantial reading opportunities. Cohorts last an hour and a half.
Degree or Certificate students take courses for credit and so commit to all course work outlined in syllabus. Like any Masters’ level program, the work can be challenging. It is also stimulating.
Whether online or on campus, completing a degree or certificate as a part-time student would take several years. A significant advantage of online study, however, is that students can fit lectures into their life-style more fluidly.
Learn Local Northwest uses Covenant Theological Seminary’s online program, so courses follow the standard semester plan.
