Online Programs

We know you can’t hit pause on your family, ministry and work commitments. Talbot offers online programs that enable you to gain a worthwhile seminary education that works with your busy schedule and keeps you rooted in the community God has placed you.

Join like-minded students under the mentorship of our excellent faculty. No matter your degree program, you will find your time with us to be dynamically interactive, intellectually enriching and spiritually transformative.


Fully Online Programs

Talbot offers accredited online theology degrees and online certificates, so you can get the education you need while meeting the demands of your current life and vocation. Discussions and other interactions all happen online. There are no “in-person” meetings.


Hybrid Programs

Talbot’s hybrid degrees allow you to take both online courses and traditional on-campus courses as part of your program. In most cases, up to half of the required courses in these degrees can be completed fully online — making them a flexible and appealing option for students throughout the Southern California region.
