You can complete your first year of an on-campus degree in almost every major through Maranatha online, saving around $12,000!
This can lead to some serious savings, in terms of time and money, especially if you are getting started as a High School student doing dual-enrollment. Since most coursework toward an academic Minor does not begin until your sophomore year, we do not generally provide coursework in those areas online.
If you don’t know what major (or even larger department) you want to study, there are five courses that all majors take in their freshman year: Old Testament Survey, New Testament Survey, English Composition 1, English Composition 2, and The Modern World.
