Classes and Schedule
Class Format and Length
Students attend online or on-site classes at their local church. Classes are taught by BU adjunct or full-time faculty. Apprenticeships are led by church or community leaders. BU-X works with local churches to create a custom Fall and Spring semester schedule of courses that fits their programs.
Classes are taught in a 7-week accelerated format. Classes are offered in an online, hybrid, or live on-site model depending on the demand for the class.
