TMU Online Programs

Dr. John Hughes, Director

The Master’s University Online provides an opportunity for conservative evangelical believers worldwide to experience

the academic excellence and spiritual influence consistent with the University’s on-campus programs. TMU Online

offers both complete degree programs in selected academic fields and a variety of online courses that can be used to

fulfill General Education (G.E.) and elective requirements at TMU and for transfer to other colleges and universities.

All online courses are taught from a distinctively biblical worldview and provide the options of enrollment for credit or

on an audit-only basis.

Courses are offered in two eight-week sessions during each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer). Consequently, TMU

Online courses are eligible for federal and state financial aid for qualifying individuals. Students may take one or two

courses each session depending on their personal schedule.

TMU Online courses contain a variety of proven online instructional approaches, including brief video lectures, topical

videos from the Internet or other resources, interactive exercises, and lessons. In addition, students engage each other

and the instructor in online discussion forums, chat and video conferencing sessions, and instant messaging. Student

assessments include online quizzes and exams, written papers, online speeches, role-play, and presentations, depending

on the program.
