DVD Courses

Calvary Baptist Seminary offers 8 of its Master of Divinity-level courses by DVD. Courses on DVD are taught in the seminary classrooms with resident students in the audience, offering the student an opportunity a more realistic and personal experience in distance learning.

Many students have found Calvary's DVD courses to be a much-needed aid to their own personal and academic growth and a valuable tool for enriching their ministry of preaching and teaching the Word of God.

Program Overview

DVD courses are available to students either for credit on the master's or certificate level or for noncredit personal enrichment. Many people choose to use DVDs as a way of strengthening their own Bible knowledge and take the courses for personal enrichment in this way. Others, however, wish to use these courses as a means of contributing credit toward their seminary degree (academic credit is applicable to the M.Div., Certificate, and Master of Arts in Theological Studies/Master of Arts in Christian Ministry programs only).

Tuition & Fees

Please consult the seminary's Tuition and Fees page for detailed information.

Library Services

Students taking DVD courses for Master of Arts or Master of Divinity credit should attempt to locate a theological library within commuting distance for purposes of research. Additional resources from our library are also available. The library fee is included in the $75 DVD fee; however, the cost of shipping books from our library will be billed as an additional expense.

Due Dates & Late Work

Non-resident students must follow the same academic calendar as resident students. The standard seminary policy for late work applies to DVD courses: one-week unexcused academic extensions are assessed a $50 fee and a 3-point course grade reduction. All requests for academic extensions must be received in the seminary office before the course due date; course work completed without a timely request for an academic extension will be assigned a failing grade. Extension forms are available upon request. Excused extensions are granted at the discretion of the Dean and have no penalty.
