Greater Cincinnati Center

In Fall 2018, Northern opened its Greater Cincinnati Center, located at Tabernacle Bible Church City of Promise, 1260 Hicks Blvd, Fairfield, OH.


Most classes in each program are offered via Northern’s unique interactive live-streaming technology (Northern Live). Smart classroom technology enables you to engage in a vibrant classroom experience and interact with Northern’s premier faculty and other students in real time, earning a Masters degree with a cohort of learners.

The programs also entail travel to occasional one-week intensive classes in Chicagoland (see each program page below for details). Programs intentionally begin face-to-face on the main campus in order to build relationships that will last for the duration of the program. Low-cost housing accommodations are available (see here for more information).


Northern offers the Master of Divinity and the Master of Arts at the Greater Cincinnati Center, available with three specializations:

Most programs begin with an on-campus intensive in Chicagoland, followed by weekly classes live-streamed to Cincinnati during the academic year.
