The master’s programs at ETS are offered in an intensive format. Due to the intensive nature of the programs, students are primarily on campus for academic purposes. ETS has a fitness room, a basketball court, a small student center, a TV room, music practice rooms, etc. Snow skiing and sledding are available in the winter months. The students attend Chapel services together and other organized activities during their intensives. A campus dining hall provides students with all meals, and students eat together during scheduled breaks. The campus has someone available for first aid, and there is a hospital within 8 miles of the campus.

The residential nature of the campus, with both faculty and administrators being on campus, means students have wide access to faculty and staff for support during their intensives. The faculty regularly meet with students to assist them with their studies, and students have access to the library, technology, and other learning resources while on campus.
