Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond (BTSR) originated in 1991, educating the first students in a rented church basement. Today, the private, not-for-profit faith-based seminary resides on a campus in Richmond, Virginia, and coordinates programs with Union Presbyterian Seminary, the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union Commonwealth University, and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Furthermore, through distance learning education, BTSR maintains an international campus.
BTSR supports online learning, and at least one-third of the Master of Divinity program can now be completed online. Currently, all programs integrate blended learning and require a residential requirement. Some students learning from a distance complete online coursework throughout the year, and then attend BTSR annually to participate in 3-week long sessions. In addition to online programs for degree-seeking students, BTSR also offers online continuing education classes for professionals desiring to enhance their skill sets.
