Northwind Seminary's Master's Degree Completion program is designed for working adults engaged in Ministry with the O2 Church Network.


At Northwind Seminary, our faith-based degree completion programs are designed to fit into your
lifestyle, family, work, and Ministry.  There are no semesters at NTS.


Our students take one course at a time and study at their own pace completing courses in as little as 30 days and a maximum of 120 days.


NTS Master Degree Completion students can bring up to 6 credits of previous coursework and Ministry, business, & military experience. These credits are evaluated by Northwind Academic. Approved coursework credits and awarded experiential credits are transferred to Northwind Seminary.

Students with less than 6 transferrable credits of coursework or experience credit take courses from Northwind Institute that transfer to Northwind Seminary.
