The Graduate School prepares students for professional service and leadership through quality educational programs that build on the knowledge and competencies students have gained in their undergraduate education and life experience. Graduate students are expected to display a higher level of responsibility for their discovery and learning and to enrich the classroom experience with their insights and leadership.

The graduate programs at Bethel:

  • Develop reflective practitioners by assisting students to apply theoretical perspectives to issues in the discipline.
  • Encourage students to apply a Christian worldview and ethical principles to professional practice.
  • Enable students to adopt new approaches and techniques to information management.
  • Prepare students to apply critical and creative thinking to decision making.
