9 W E L C O M E Welcome to Reformed Theological Seminary, Virtual Campus. Reformed Theological Seminary was founded over 40 years ago with a vision to equip God s people to serve the Church and advance His kingdom. From the beginning, RTS has been committed to providing seminary training for ministry rooted in the inerrant Word of God, and grounded in the principles of Reformed theology. The Virtual Campus is a part of that vision and was designed to make a seminary education available to men and women wherever they live. You can study church history, systematic theology, and biblical studies without leaving your home, ministry, or workplace. RTS Virtual offers biblical instruction for mind and heart through an innovative combination of interactive multimedia, distance education and local mentoring. RTS Virtual students take courses from our faculty of world-class professors through a variety of formats: recorded lectures of over 30 full RTS courses; course notebooks with carefully constructed guidance for each course; online courses provided in both live and playback modes; and intensive on-campus weekend seminars. M A R Master of Arts in Religion degree program The Virtual Campus offers students worldwide the Master of Arts in Religion, an accredited theological graduate degree, without leaving church, job or community. As much as 90% of the degree is earned through distance education, including completion of a thesis, plus two one-week on-campus seminars. Courses are required in church history, systematic theology, and biblical studies, with electives in these same departments plus Christian education, practical theology, and Greek and Hebrew language instruction. This is an interdisciplinary foundation for further academic study or Christian ministry in the church or on the mission field. The RTS Virtual Campus is accredited as a graduatelevel program by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada and the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Students begin to earn their seminary degree by applying for admissions at virtual.rts.edu, enrolling in their first course, ordering course materials, and completing assignments in four-month terms or less. Please read the following pages for the required course descriptions. Also, you will find a helpful chart on the last page of this brochure. For more details we invite you to visit virtual.rts.edu or call our admissions office at

10 C h u r c h H i s t o r y History of Christianity I 0HT502 3 CREDITS One reason to study church history is summed up in the quote, Those who have not learned the lessons of the past are doomed to repeat its failures. This marvelous story of the Church through the medieval period introduces persons, events, and factors that our Lord utilized to sustain the Church and to prepare it for the Reformation. Focusing on the lasting significance of this vital era will help prepare students to follow God s leading in life and ministry. Required for MAR & MDiv degrees History of Christianity II 0HT504 3 CREDITS Surveying the story of the Church during these incredible centuries gives reason to praise God for His faithfulness in preserving His Bride, the Church.

Required for MAR & MDiv degrees M A R The Church and the World 0HT506 2 CREDITS The message never changes, but to be effective in communicating the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ, our methodologies must constantly be reviewed. Surveying the history of the church with an eye toward application, this course examines the relationship of Christ and culture, and the impact of beliefs and trends. To develop an appropriate apologetical approach, students learn to interpret and respond to contemporary culture from a biblical perspective. Required for MAR & MDiv degrees S y s t e m a t i c T h e o l o g y Systematic Theology I: Scripture, Theology Proper and Anthropology 0ST508 3 CREDITS Students in this foundational systematic theology course consider the nature of the Bible and what that amazing book tells us about God. In the Bible, God has given us His own words. He identifies Himself in that book, telling us who He is; what He does; how He exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and how His sovereignty relates to our freedom and to evil. Supremely, He tells us about His dear Son, Jesus, who died so that our sins can be forgiven. These complex theological truths are essential, and shape our understanding of eternity, the world, and how we live. Required for MAR & MDiv degrees

Required for MAR & MDiv degrees Systematic Theology III: Christology, Soteriology and Eschatology 0ST522 3 CREDITs While providing a treasured occasion for students to comprehend the wonder and the tragedy of humanity, this course will enable one to grow in worship and awe of humanity s only Hope the Lord Jesus Christ. Students study the topics of Christology (Christ and His work), Soteriology (sin and salvation), and Eschatology (end times). Subtopics include the doctrine of the covenant, the doctrine of atonement, effectual calling, justification and adoption, sanctification, Christian liberty, the work and doctrine of the Holy Spirit, and Christ s return and future judgment. Required for MAR & MDiv degrees History of Philosophy and Christian Thought 0ST504 3 CREDITs Students wanting to be effective in understanding the times and our culture should take this course. Following a brief introduction to philosophical thinking, the course concentrates on major philosophical movements that have influenced history, along with principal developments in Christian doctrine and thought. Gain tools for evaluating culture from a biblical perspective in order to formulate a redemptive worldview. Required for MAR & MDiv degrees M A R Pastoral & Social Ethics 0ST528 3 CREDITs Today s ethical issues are not all found in a concordance, yet God s Word provides instruction that touches the most complex matters moral responsibility, bioethics, conscience, environment, war, the state, worship and more. This is an opportunity to explore the complexities of life s perplexing questions from a relevant and scripturally grounded perspective. Required for MAR & MDiv degrees Apologetics: Honest Answers to Honest Questions 0ST530 2 CREDITs God s existence, the problem of evil, the currents of modern and postmodern thought are most believers prepared to respond to issues with which Christians and non-christians interact?
