The Talbot School of Theology – Kyiv Extension provides students with the master of arts degree in Biblical and Theological Studies. The degree consists of 66 credits, which students can take at the pace most comfortable to them. Our academic year consists of four sessions, usually with two one-week classes offered per session (two-week sessions every October, December, March and June). If all of the courses offered each session are completed in sequence, a student will graduate in four and a half years. The goal of the TST-KE is to have approximately 30 students enrolled at any one time, which results in approximately 10-20 students taking each class. Incoming students are accepted for the fall semester of each academic year; the document submission deadline for fall acceptance is April 15.

Professors from the La Mirada, California campus, where Talbot School of Theology is located, teach a minimum of two courses every year. All other courses are taught by qualified professors of Kyiv Theological Seminary or other specially invited adjunct professors.

For the Association of Theological Schools, the TST-KE's accrediting agency, a one-credit class consists of 12.5 in-class teaching hours and two hours of out-of-class work for every hour in class. Thus, a standard three-credit class will require 37.5 hours of in-class instruction and 75 hours of pre- and post-assignments. Students are required to read and comprehend theological English as there are often an insufficient number of academic resources in Russian to conduct M.A.-level courses. Our current ratio of Russian to English reading is 60:40. There are no requirements to speak or write in English and all courses are taught either in Russian or in English with Russian translation.
