The purpose of this investigation was to gain a better understanding of the expectations graduate students hold regarding the amount of and types of faith-related activities utilized in online coursework. Two groups of participants surveyed were enrolled at two different, faith-based institutions in Pennsylvania, United States; one a Catholic university and one a Christian college. Results of the survey and subsequent response analysis indicated that 82% of the students preferred the instructor utilize faith activities more frequently in online coursework, despite having enrolled at the institution for its academic reputation.
