Common Questions

Evangel’s Adult Studies programs are the picture of flexibility. For those looking to revolutionize their careers with a convenient bachelor’s degree, there are several programs to choose from.

What programs do you offer?

Evangel offers four bachelor’s degree programs and one associates degree program designed for working adults.

When and where do classes meet?

Most of our adult undergraduate programs begin in the fall, spring, and summer. Classes typically meet one night a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays from 6 -10 p.m. or online.

Some General Education courses are offered Saturday mornings from 8am-12pm. Students in their majors will be assigned a night when enrolled in a cohort.  Course offerings are listed in the foundational/elective course schedule.

I don’t have 60 credit hours. Can I still enroll in the Adult Studies program?

Absolutely! You can enter the program at any time, but you will need to earn 60 credit hours before you can start taking courses in your major. We offer general education courses in the same format (one night per week for five weeks) as the major courses.
