HOW WE STAND OUT
THE VISIBLE EDGE
3 Campus Locations
We’re as close or as far away as you want to be. In addition to our three campus locations in Memphis, Chicago and Dallas. We also have a Study Away program. Students completing their first year at any Visible campus are invited to attend another location the following year. More options, more experience, more music!
Flexibility without Sacrifices
For most programs you can take your courses 100% online with the option of joining the live streaming of lectures so you don’t feel like you’re missing out.
Professional Christian Mentorship
Qualified, experienced, Christian faculty guide students through a system of experiential training, opportunities in the local area and on our campuses remotely, and in the major music centers of the world. Receive mentorship, internships, and have a lot of fun within the systems of industry and opportunity to break through with entrepreneurial excellence.
In-Person and Online Education
Study at 3 Locations Or Through Distance Education
In the heart of one of the Top 15 Emerging Downtowns in the U.S., you can hop on the trolley and head straight to Beale Street where blues and rock n’ roll were born. Live in the upscale student housing across the street, and open your window to the Memphis skyline and AutoZone Park
Less than 30 miles from Downtown Chicago, it’s easy to go grab a deep dish or take in a concert in this vibrant music city. Near the local farmers market and village center, the Lansing campus of Visible Music College has a small town feel with access to big city life.
Located in the heart of Texas, the Dallas campus of Visible Music College places you in the front row to the growing center of gospel music and within a broadcast distance of one of the top Christian radio giants in the country.
Distance Education at Visible
Because of the focus of being one college with multiple sites, including Visible Online Campus (ONL), Distance Education means both Intercampus Connection for coursework (often live classes via Zoom) from any campus location and Online Classes from an off-campus location for students at the Online (ONL) campus.
Online Classes are more disconnected by nature and different than in-person content, so Visible strives to bring real community and engagement to everyone at every campus “site.”
Intercampus Connection is designed and monitored with a seamless “presence” mentality, expecting to serve students in a classroom as if they were present in person. All Visible students will take some Distance Education courses (often live classes via Zoom) via Intercampus Connection as all students will have a campus designator for their physical site or Online (ONL).
Online Classes is now Visible Online Campus
Visible Online Campus (ONL) is a distinctly separate remote coursework campus, with a community cohort learning together from individual student locations, completely online (often live classes via Zoom). A student is either at a physical location taking courses, which can include some Intercampus Connection, or they are “at” the Visible Online Campus (ONL). Online Classes (and Visible Online Campus) also require presence in the classroom via video link at specific times, synchronously, in the spirit of the Visible Music College model for Christian community.
Wherever possible, Visible Music College will choose the more connected and personal option in Distance Education as a result of our focus on Relational Ministry as a core Institutional Philosophy. All courses are now offered online either synchronously or (limited) asynchronously for use by any physical campus or the Visible Online Campus and students from all campuses enjoy fellowship in the way via Zoom.
