Master

Courses are an option for many students who are interested in learning more of about a skill or field of interest. The length and depth of focus depends on the type of course that is selected. This flexibility allows many individuals to take more control over what and how much they learn. Many also appreciate the ability to fit a short course of instruction into a schedule with ease.

What is a course? For those who seek additional learning opportunities, a course is often the easiest and most flexible type of learning available.  Courses vary in intensity and length which allows students to select schedules that will work for their busy lives. From online courses to intensive courses, there are many options available.

There are a number of advantages to taking a course. One of these is the ability for students to continue learning between years of study. Many full-time students forego school in the summer. Whether one is working or relaxing during the summer months, a short course can often help to ensure that skills gained will be retained until the next term begins.

The price of different courses can vary greatly.  This variation is driven by the length of the selected course, the type of educational institution that if offering the course, and the end goal of the course itself. For instance, a course in mathematics that qualifies a student for an academic credit might be more expensive than a brief refresher course on basic math techniques.

Courses are offered many institutions worldwide, and in many different fields.  As such, many career options will be greatly enhanced when individuals opt to invest their time in a course. Some of the top courses that are available today include those in design, education, engineering and psychology. Whether one is just beginning to learn about field of study, or looking to enhance a current degree, many jobs are available for those who have chosen to complete this type of course.

Do not delay your enhanced learning opportunities any longer. If you are interested in learning more about the types of courses that are available, you need only search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Discover the theological, historical, literary, and archaeological studies connections between Jewish and Christian texts. [+]

Course 2017. Discover the theological, historical, literary, and archaeological studies connections between Jewish and Christian texts. Course Description Learn a variety of subjects that connect Judaism and Christianity and discover the relevance of ancient Judaism to the New Testament. Syllabus Summary Introduction: Traditional Paradigms Reconsidered We read the Bible through the lens of received traditions – interpretations that have come down to us through the centuries. Most of these interpretations suppose that there was a “Christianity” separate and distinct from “Judaism” immediately after the lifetime of Jesus. Some of these interpretations even place this separation during Jesus’ ministry. In this lesson, we will discover how the “Jesus movement” or “Jesus sect” remained a Jewish group for decades after the destruction of the Jerusalem temple. Dead Sea Scrolls and New Testament Studies This lesson will explore how the Dead Sea Scrolls can be useful for understanding ideas current within the culture in which the New Testament was formed. Samarians and Samaritans: Rethinking the Samaritan Woman This lesson will take a deeper look at the character of the Samaritan Woman in John 4, in the context of Samaritan identity, the view of Judeans and Samaritans toward one another in the first century CE, and the essence of the conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan Woman as a focus on the correct place of worship. John, Jews, and Judaism: Rethinking the Story of Lazarus This lesson will re-examine the portrayal of “the Jews” in the Gospel of John. “Jews” is a most unfortunate... [-]
