ABOUT COLSON FELLOWS

Colson Fellows and The Bible Seminary

Colson Fellows from across the globe complete a rigorous course of study that begins each July and concludes with their commissioning in May. In this ten month program, candidates follow a carefully curated curriculum that is updated each year. The curriculum includes thirteen books, video content, daily time in the Bible, live webinars with Christian thought leaders and a monthly in person meeting with local, like-minded Christian in which they are able to engage in a lively exchange of ideas. For more information, visit the Colson Fellows website at ColsonFellows.org.

"We're so excited to partner with the Colson Fellows to offer this incredible opportunity for dual credit. Participants will undergo a transformative experience of growing in their faith while learning to understand and defend their beliefs in a rapidly changing world. They'll integrate this experience with a study of Scripture and earn graduate credits along the way to becoming a Colson Fellow. "

"The Colson Fellows program is an

Avant-Garde Apologetics and Worldview institution, and TBS is thrilled to partner with them to equip our students."







 

EARNING DUAL CREDIT


Beginning with the 2023-24 Colson Fellows cohort, qualifying participants may earn credit for The Bible Seminary’s "APO 501: Apologetics - Proverbs, James, 1 Peter" and/or "ELE 501: Elective I" courses in conjunction with the Colson Fellows program. Each of these courses is a 3-credit hour class which can be applied toward a degree program at The Bible Seminary, or potentially transferred to another graduate school of the student’s choice. In order to earn dual credit, students must complete the Colson Fellows Program AND additional requirements for APO 501 and/or ELE 501 (a one-day seminar and short written assignment for each class). Cost for the combined TBS/Colson Fellows program is $1,310 per course and includes The Bible Seminary tuition and fees, as well as the cost of the ten-month Colson Fellows program. Total cost for the 10-month Colson Fellows program AND earning 6-degree credit hours is $2,620 (a $3,520 value).
