College of Adult & Professional Studies
Continuing Bethel’s tradition of academic excellence, the College of Adult & Professional Studies offers students the opportunity to earn undergraduate degrees in a flexible format designed especially for people who are busy with jobs, family, and other obligations.
Because Bethel values the rich and diverse experience that students bring to the classroom, they actively participate in the learning process. Performance is evaluated primarily on written assignments, class discussions, projects, and small-group participation. Courses emphasize the application of learning to the professional needs and interests of each student. A Christian worldview is integrated with coursework throughout the program.
The College of Adult & Professional Studies offers all courses needed to earn an associate of arts degree (A.A.), an associate of science degree (A.S.), a bachelor of arts degree (B.A.), a bachelor of science degree (B.S.), a bachelor of science in nursing degree (B.S.N), and specific certificates. Detailed information about each degree, minor, and certificate, including admission and graduation requirements and course descriptions, is provided in this publication.
The core sequence of each major is typically structured as a series of courses taken one at a time with classes meeting one evening each week or online.
