At Providence, we offer Christ-centered, Bible-based distance education. This drives our tradition of sound academic excellence powered by rigorous pedagogy, excellent faculty, and service-oriented, student-focused staff in a cordial environment that allows robust exchange of ideas in a guided exploratory space.
Distance Education at Providence includes courses delivered through in-person classes, modular classes, hybrid format, directed study, and online learning. For more information on what these formats mean, refer to the ‘How Providence Distance Education Works’ section below.
Note: Our MA Counselling and MA Counselling Psychology programs require that one-third (1/3) of courses be taken in unmediated face-to-face contact with the instructor (7 courses for the MA Counselling, 10 courses for the MA Counselling Psychology). Unmediated face-to-face contact with the instructor includes modular (week long), hybrid, directed study and travel study courses.
Our main campus in Otterburne, MB offers the complete range of delivery options for the following programs: MA Christian Studies, MA Theological Studies, MA Educational Studies, MA Global Studies, MA Counselling, MA Counselling Psychology, MDiv and DMin.
