Study Options

Overview

We offer a range of ways for you to take courses at ADC, allowing you to do ministry and access a high-quality education within your unique context. In-person classes in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick – and online options available for all courses – mean there’s a study option for you.

Online from Anywhere

All our courses are available to take online and include both synchronous and asynchronous content. To create the best student experience and build community through our courses, most classes are not self-directed, but instead include a mixture of live online teaching and pre-recorded elements to accompany in-class discussion.

Combining digital learning with face-to-face interaction, our online options allow you to study through a highly flexible format and make theological education accessible for all.

The exact format offered for each course changes year-to-year – check our course list for up-to-date details and format options.

Closer to Home

We know that you can’t always come to our beautiful campus to study, so we offer a wide variety of in-person classes throughout the Canadian maritime provinces.

Wolfville, Nova Scotia
