Are these “a la carte” courses anyone can take or do I need to register as a student and follow a program of study like a college?
The choice is yours. Anyone can take any course at any time. There is no applicaiton or registration. You do not need to pursue a degree. If you change your mind, you can pursue a degree with us as long as you took the courses for credit, passed all the exams, and did all the reading and assignments. If you purchased the course as an audit, it does not count towards the degree. Therefore, if you are considering a degree, we recommend that you take the courses for credit.
Is this a school, college, or seminary?
This is an online school named, “Ariel’s School of Messianic Jewish Studies” (ASMJS) and every Ariel Online Course you complete for credit counts towards a degree in Messianic Jewish Studies from ASMJS. After we complete production of 20 online courses we can begin offering degree level certificates. We plan on producing 3-5 courses per year. Sixty courses will, Lord willing, be developed over the next several years and thus we will be offering three degree levels: Associates, Bachelors, and Masters. We are not currently seeking accreditation and courses cannot be transferred into or out of our program. The courses can be completed by anyone but they are challenging, so be prepared to study.
How much do the courses cost? What is the refund policy? What does it mean to “audit” a course?
A very affordable price – $99. for credit or $49. to audit
To audit a course one has the option to by-pass (skip-over) anything one wants to such as assigned readings, written assignments, Bible memory verses, and exams. You do have access to everything but you do not need to do everything, only things you want to do. However, you do not get credit for the course and it does not count towards a degree in Messianic Jewish Studies. The audit only option is a great choice for many. Also keep in mind that we do have a 7 day refund policy; contact the adminstrator if for any reason you are not fully satisfied.
What do I do if I want to take a course? Where do I start? Is there a contact person if I run into a problem or have a question?
Just look through the courses on this homepage and click on the course you are interested in. This will take you to a page with more info. on that course and then you can select from three options on that page: (1) Take the course for credit, (2) Audit it only, or (3) Only buy the Course Audio Lectures. Click on your choice and you will be taken to a page to purchase whatever option you chose. You will then select a user name and password. Then login and you will see your course(s). Click on the course and begin Segment #1. If you have any questions or problems email the school administrator at: Administrator@ArielCourses.com
What does each course include? How much work does each course entail? How hard are the exams? Are there time limits on exams? Do courses expire?
Let’s start with the last question first. Courses do not expire, take as long as you want to work on a course. There are no time limits on exams. You can choose to save and return later if you need a break. The exams are open book and open note. The exams are mostly true/false and multiple-choice questions. Some courses have short answer, open-ended questions. Some exams include memory verses. Exams are long but there are no written research papers or assignments that are turned in for a grade. Each of our courses are organized around Units and within each Unit are a number of Segments. Each Segment has:
- Learning Objectives
- High Quality, Closed-Studio, Video Lecture Presentation
- Required Reading
- Optional Reading
- Study Questions
- Spiritual Growth: Implication and Application Assignments
- An Open-Note Exam (at the end of each Unit)
