Course Design

 In each track, Students will take 10 subjects (30 credit hours) as follows

In the second year will make two similar visits to complete 4 residential mode subjects and Thesis (18 credit Hours)
 M.Th. Old Testament students will make 5 visits in two years to complete the program.
 Online mode subjects will have 10 live classes, supervised paper presentations, and reflections.

Each subject will have 3 major sections:
• Preparation stage – students will be given primary text (books, Articles) and instructions to come prepared           for the residential classes
• Classroom learning – 25 classes
• Final stage – paper presentations and reflections (15 classes). The final exam will cover all three stages
 Students will be subscribed to the online resources (fee included in the library fee)

Course calendar
o Each Year students will make 2 visits (in June and in October) of each 2 weeks duration
o Class timetable from Monday to Saturday (if needed on Sunday after worship service) will be

8.30 AM – 9.30 AM  Class 1
10.00-10.45 AM Chapel
11.00 – 1.00 PM  Classes 2 and 3
2.30 – 4.30 PM  Classes 4 and 5
8.00 -10.00 PM Library

-> Monday to Saturday – 6 days x 5 classes = 30 classes will include the assigned subject, Thesis proposal seminar, examinations – There is a confusion here. Earlier we say 25 classes. 25 classes is correct.
