Welch College will hold an orientation on January 5, 2016, for students admitted to the Master of Arts degree in Theology and Ministry, as well as prospective students interested in the program.
The one-day orientation is required for all admitted students, but others who are interested in the program are invited to attend.
Students and prospective students will have the opportunity to meet the administration, faculty, and staff and get information on the College’s unique hybrid course design, which includes a combination of on-line and on-campus instruction. They will learn about services available to graduate students, including tuition costs, scholarships, and loan information.
Lodging for Monday night and Tuesday meals (light breakfast and buffet lunch) will be provided for those who respond before December 18. (Students who wish to bring family may obtain information on local hotels at welch.edu/visit-local-hotels.)
