Program Overview

The Bachelor of Science in Organization Leadership program at Bethel University is designed to be completed in approximately 14-19 months. This particular program is geared towards students who have already earned 30 college credit hours. Bethel University is the first Tennessee college to give students technology (laptops, etc.) for study, and allow them to keep this technology after graduation. Students will complete classes through online video lectures, podcasts, and other educational tools.

After being accepted into this program, students will participate in an orientation class, and then continue to subjects such as writing, science, humanities, and history. The orientation class is an introduction to the program, as well as an orientation to online learning. In certain cases, individuals may also earn credit hours outside of required classes. If students already have working experience, or are currently participating in relevant activities outside the classroom, these experiences may be eligible for transfer into credit hours.

Students will complete a total of 48 semester hours, participating in a number of courses worth approximately three credit hours each. Some of these courses include Human Resource Management, Systems Approach to Organizational Change, and Principles of Managerial Accounting. Some topics students will explore in these courses include essential areas such as marketing, budgeting, information systems, managerial decisions, organizational analysis, human resource functions, and other organizational contexts. In addition to required courses, students will also need to complete either an Organizational Research Project, or choose one of four classes: Sales & Sales Management, Crisis Management, Business Law, or Business & Society.

    School Overview

    In 1871, John Alexis Edgren began Baptist Union Theological Seminary in Chicago to prepare pastors for the ministry of Swedish Baptist immigrants. After the turn of the century, the school relocated to St. Paul and expanded to offer four-year degrees, becoming Bethel College and Seminary. As the school progressed forward, new programs and campus locations were established. In 2004, the school transitioned into Bethel University. Today, retaining its Christian-based vision, the private, not-for-profit Bethel University main campus is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, with additional facilities at San Diego and along the East Coast.

    Bethel University supports goals of adult students seeking associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, in addition to certificate programs. In order to accommodate the busy lifestyles of adult students, accelerated programs are offered online, in the evenings, or on weekends. The Graduate School at Bethel University awards master’s and doctorate degrees, along with certificate and license programs. Students progress through accelerated formats that incorporate faith values. Classes are taught in the evenings and/or on weekends in addition to other campus locations and online.
