At Bethel, we use a cohort-based program design in which students progress through courses with the same group of peers, building a supportive learning environment. Our students are taught and mentored by expert faculty and complete the program equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to become leaders in the field. You'll be automatically registered for your courses each term so that you can concentrate on your studies.
