Online and Distance Learning Continues to Grow
For more than a decade, Maranatha Baptist University’s online program has grown and continues to be influential to many students’ lives. Dana Davis, Assistant Vice President of Online and Distance Learning (ODL), says that the program “has grown from offering just a handful of courses to now offering 11 undergraduate degree programs, 4 graduate degree programs, and 7 seminary programs that can be completed from a distance.”
In 2020, BestColleges.com ranked Maranatha Baptist University as the #2 college in Wisconsin, based on its academic quality, affordability, and flexibility. U.S. News and World Report recently ranked Maranatha Baptist University’s online bachelor program as #36 in the Midwest. A key benefit that has contributed to Maranatha’s online success is its dual-enrollment offerings that high school students are able to take before becoming on-campus students. Another reason that Maranatha’s online program has thrived is because of its conservative worldview.
Davis adds, “ODL helps to extend the mission of MBU to students located all across the country and around the world. Students who are unable to physically attend our Watertown campus can still earn a regionally accredited Christ-centered university education, learn from highly-qualified professors, and experience a supportive learning community of like-minded students.”
Maranatha’s online program continues to prosper. The most recent addition to the online program is the Master of Arts in Teaching program which leads directly to a state teaching license in Elementary Education, Social Studies, Science, or English Language Arts. Recognized for its superior quality in education and ministry, Maranatha Online seeks to further advance the cause of Christ.
