Summer 2014 Classes

Note: This is the schedule for the previous Summer semester, and Summer semesters tend to be similar. However, the schedule for Summer 2015 classes has not yet been finalized. It should be published in the early Spring with registration opening up in March. Check back for updates!

This Summer, choose from over 55 classes in many different fields, such as Bible/Ministry, Business, Science, and Education!

During your first online session, we strongly recommend you take only one course. If, after successfully completing your first course, you want to take more, you may do that.

Check Maranatha’s catalog for information related to prerequisites, the required Liberal Arts and Biblical Studies Cores, and placement options. In order to ensure quality interaction between instructors and students, enrollment in our courses is capped. Since courses fill up, you are encouraged to register early to reserve your seat! MBU may also cancel courses (for reasons like low enrollment).

The A & B Session courses will still last 8 weeks; however, two new sessions have been added. The C Session will last 12 weeks, and the D Session will last 16 weeks. Read more>>
