Video Conferencing Model

As part of a comprehensive distance education syracuse-seminary-campus-classroomprogram, and in service to the greater central New York State region, accredited master's level courses are offered via video conferencing. This capability links the community of learners in Syracuse and Northeastern's main campus in Rochester, N.Y. through live video feed, providing a real-time, interactive classroom.

The PolyCom interactive video distance learningtechnology allows for multidirectional streaming so professors can teach from either the Rochester or Syracuse location. They can engage students through lecture and multimedia resources at both sites and students can interact with each other as well. This classroom format is integrated with on-site small group interactions and periodic chapel services to enhance community and provide instruction in spiritual formation-a distinctive of the NES education. A scheduled rotation of seminary staffing at the Syracuse site, steady communication among members of the seminary community, and cohort rapport provides the high-touch quality that is significant to theological education.

As a Syracuse pastor and student at Northeastern Seminary, I am excited there will be a local, accredited, seminary option to benefit the church in central New York.

-Pastor Ben Gray, MATL, Syracuse Vineyard

I loved Northeastern! The whole experience was so much more than I could have imagined. What a blessing that classes will now be offered here in Syracuse.

-Michele Miner, MA

Northeastern provided a schedule and curriculum that accommodated my busy schedule, enabling me to complete a master's degree. I believe that many clergy men and women can benefit from their program and I am delighted about their presence in Syracuse.

-Pastor Phil M. Turner, Bethany Baptist Church

Students now have the opportunity to gain a thorough Christian education through NES classes in the Syracuse area. This program isn't about mere head knowledge, but through the holistic approach to theological education, NES reorients its students to the ever-present need of attending to both the head and the heart.
