Alternative & Distance Education

We know it’s daunting to uproot family, interrupt work, and move to a new city to pursue theological education. That’s why our flexible timetable may interest you. Horizon offers classes through one-week modules, evenings, and (occasionally) weekends. Beyond that, we are fundamentally rebooting the way we do distance education. Instructors are reshaping courses so you can learn from home, using the internet to participate fully with other students – both on and off-campus – who are taking the same course at the same time.


Distance Education Courses

We offer courses by distance in a number of ways, including text-based, audio and video lectures, and by using the internet to stream you into live courses being offered on-campus. Click the drop-downs for more information on each format.

Online Courses

These courses involve interacting with a professor and a group of students who, like you, are taking the course at the same time entirely online. You don’t have set times to view lectures or “attend class,” although you do have deadlines for assignments and requirements to interact with other online students in the course.

  • Contemporary Approaches to Leadership and Administration (done in conjunction with the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit).
  • Doctrine of God
  • Ethics and Morality
  • History of the Christian Era
  • Holy Spirit and the Church
  • Homiletics
  • Introduction To New Testament
  • Pentecostalism and the Church and Canada
  • Reason and Christian Belief
  • Theology I
  • Theology II

These courses are offered on an as-requested basis. Start Dates for these courses are May 15September 15, and January 15 of each year.

Live Stream Courses

These courses stream you into a live course taking place on Horizon’s campus in Saskatoon. You have to attend the course at the specified times and will be called upon to interact with other students taking the course both on campus and online.

You have access to these courses via Adobe Connect.  Don’t worry, we will walk you through the log in process and use of the program. Please click here to download our Alternative Education Policy regarding Adobe Connect.

Live Stream courses follow our on-campus class schedule. To see a list of on-campus courses that you might access via live stream, please view the on-campus Course Timetable here.

Every year Horizon offers several blocks of 1-week modules. Attend a course for one week of lectures and then complete the course work in the weeks that follow. A great way to get a course if you have limited time to study!

Module classes are offered at the beginning of September, November, January, and March, with an additional module in late April. To see the specific dates for this year’s modules, please view the Timetable here.
