Canadian Connection

A Canadian Division of Bethany Seminary has been established to deal specifically with the needs of our Canadian students. The Rev. Dr. Edison E. Wiltshire is Director of Canadian and International Affairs and inquiries from Canadian students are channeled through the Bethany Office in Clarenville, Newfoundland.

Bethany’s “Canadian Connection” provides better access to the Divinity College and Seminary for Canadian students, addressing needs relative to transfer of credits, and payment of fees and tuition in Canadian currency. This division also facilitates locations for Canadian students to fulfill their in-class requirements for their. Those students interested in attending any seminar, symposium, or work-shop should contact the Canadian Office for a schedule of activities.

Completed lessons for Canadian students are graded in Canada, providing a more efficient mail service.
New courses are being added to the curriculum reflecting concerns unique to Canadian culture. The Canadian Connection also offers degrees in the French language.

It is Bethany’s desire to provide global education and to make available educational tools for those in Christian service. The “Canadian Connection” is just one more step in fulfilling the School’s goal of training men and women for the cause of Christ.
