CTH utilizes a modular schedule to accommodate the seminary’s working students. Classes are offered on a quarterly basis (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer) throughout the school year. CTH courses are taught in a one-weekend format. Unless otherwise noted, classes meet on the assigned weekend as follows: Friday noon-8pm; Saturday 8am-8pm; Sunday noon-4pm. Additional pre-and post-class assignments, including a final paper, are required.
Additional courses outside the residential classes are offered to accommodate the student’s ability to continue through each program of study in a timely manner. These classes may be completed through the External Studies program as well as Directed Studies with individual instructors.
A full-time schedule means that the student could potentially complete up to ten residential courses and several other courses via external or directed study per year.
