We are excited to announce the addition of our Master of Arts in Religion degree along with a number of non-degree programs!

IRBS Theological Seminary is now accepting applications

to all degree and non-degree programs!

The Master of Arts Program is a 72-hour (including languages) program designed to be completed in 2 residential years. Practical (Confessional), Exegetical, Systematic, Historical, and Language courses are emphasized to provide a well balanced education. This degree is not intended to serve as preparation for Gospel ministry.

The Certificate in Reformed Baptist Studies Program is a 16-hour program designed to supplement previous ministerial studies. This program is intended for continuing education of Pastors and theological students to gain understanding of Historical Reformed Baptist Doctrine.

The Special/Visiting Student Program is designed for students who do not intend to pursue a degree but would like to take courses for credit. Students may take up to 20 credits in this program. With the approval of the Academic Dean a student who meets all other admissions criteria may transfer into one of our degree programs. The Special/Visiting Student program is not intended to serve as preparation for Gospel ministry.

The Diploma Program is a 110-hour non-degree program designed to be completed residentially in a minimum of 3 years. Exegetical, Systematic, Historical, Practical, and Language courses are emphasized. This non-degree program is intended to provide students an opportunity to study at IRBS Theological Seminary who have not yet earned an accredited Bachelor’s degree. Students who are accepted into this program will pay the standard tuition rate and fees and participate in class as any other student would, with regard to assignments and examinations. This program is not a degree granting program but a diploma will be conferred to the student upon completion of the program. Credits will not be transferred to other institutions.

The IRBS Board of Trustees established a Board of Regents in December 2016. This group of business and church leaders advise and guide the Trustees in financial and business matters. Regents Paul Gullickson, Tom Castillo, Scott Thomas, Wes Becker and Russ Allsup invite you to consider participating in Project 1689, a formal effort to fund the IRBS Theological Seminary through multi- year financial commitments. Your help will make a big difference in bringing the IRBS Theological Seminary vision to fruition, providing vital financial support to its startup.
