Washington, DC Campus

Taking a class in DC is like taking a class in Texas—you get the real thing—but you benefit from the “family feel” created by extended class days and a smaller campus.


Study at DTS-DC and transform the DMV

DTS-DC equips DMV Christians to teach truth and love well in their professional networks regionally to extend Christ’s kingdom globally. When you join the DC student body, you’ll share life with men and women, young and “seasoned,” who work in church, parachurch, and national industries.


Easily accessible from major routes

Our DC campus is hosted by McLean Bible Church’s Prince William Campus in Manassas, VA. Take Exit 47 of off I-66 (Sudley Rd. and State Route 234 North).

Course Model

The best of both Online and On-campus

Our flexible hybrid model combines online lectures with on-campus sessions, taught by the same faculty you’d meet in Texas. A typical class only requires three trips to campus per semester for Saturday sessions. This course staggering enables you to take more than one on-campus class during a semester.
