Adult Evening Degrees

From its Knoxville campus and ExtendEd Knoxville downtown location, Johnson University Tennessee’s Adult Evening Degrees offer adult students with or without existing college credit the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in their choice of three programs: Nonprofit Administration, Ministry Leadership, and Pastoral Care and Counseling. These programs offer evening classes and include a double major in Bible & Theology, which provides a strong foundation for the ministry, leadership, and management principles taught throughout the programs. And, since JUTN has been recognized as a Military Friendly School, you can rest assured that the programs offer flexibility and options for military personnel.

Finish Your Degree
Students entering the Adult Evening Degree Program with 57 applicable credit hours of existing college course credit can earn their degree in two years. The Nonprofit Administration program consists of one - or on rare occasions, two - evening classes per week at the Johnson Tennessee campus. The Ministry Leadership program and the Pastoral Care and Counseling program are available in a hybrid format, with some evening classes offered on the Tennessee campus and others available online.
