Welcome to the Distance Education Department of Reformed Theological Seminary. The DE Department was established in 2013 in order to bring a full compliment of online courses, instructional design services, audiovisual and lecture capture technology, and support services to the seminary's faculty and students on an institutional scale. The DE Department exists to serve RTS students, faculty, and programs by providing fully online courses to the seminary in support of a variety of degree programs. The department also works closely with our residential campuses in order to produce rich media and other course content for use in hybrid courses (partially online & on-campus) at each campus respectively. RTS students come from a variety of professional and ministerial backgrounds and, like many students in graduate programs, work diligently to balance commitments to family, career, and community. It is our hope that by providing courses through intuitive distance education technologies, the seminary is better able to reach and serve the RTS student no matter where the Lord has called them to serve. We welcome your feedback regarding our courses, website, and resources and hope your experience utilizing these tools helps you to meet your academic, personal, and ministerial goals.
