As we wrap up the lamentable year that was 2020, there are hopeful things to look forward to in 2021. One of those things is the wonderful slate of in-person, course offerings for the Spring 2021 term across all the campuses of Reformed Theological Seminary.

That’s right, we are pressing on with in-person, residential education. While our traditional slate of distance education offerings classes will continue to be available, and while we are offering some remote live courses, the bulk of our courses this Spring will be face-to-face.

Online registration was opened on Dec 1st and classes have filled up quickly (some classes are capped due to COVID). So if you are looking to take a course this Spring, you will want to go ahead and register as soon as possible.

Of course, there are some folks out there considering taking a class, but don’t feel up to doing a whole degree program. For that reason, know that we just unveiled a slate of new certificates in biblical studies, systematic theology, biblical counseling and beyond. Each certificate requires only 8-13 hours of course credit.

Here is the full schedule of course offerings across all of our campuses. For the Charlotte campus, here are some notables:
