A newsletter received today from the South African Theological Seminary announces the presently available opportunity to do doctoral research at SATS by distance education. Further Prof Arthur Song of Unizul will head that new SATS graduate studies department. It is my understanding that Song is truly qualified , that degrees earned at SATS are truly accredited, and that tuition at SATS is truly cheap (by Western standards). Hence there now is truly made available yet another opportunity, to add to the several already existing options, to do inexpensive distance learning graduate studies in a respectable manner instead of doing them at schools which require slender amounts of rigor. (Song, BTW, is a Baptist!) I hope some might take advantage of this and add rigorous strength to the voice of higher Christian ed and scholarship instead of adding to the death rattle of it.
