I have heard that at Andersonville Theo Seminary it doesn't take that long to complete, but Covington's m.div program takes 96 hours to complete and is 22 classes plus a 25,000 word thesis done in Turabian which counts for 8 credit hours.... I know a lot of people have downed Covington and their accreditation, but to me that seems like a lot of work and it takes about a month and a half really working hard to complete each class which takes 3 years to complete.... it seems like to me that Covington, even though not well accredited, should be at the top of the list of those schools.... i know they offer a 36 hour master of ministry degree and 36 hour doctor of ministry, but I believe you are cheating yourself by doing that. After finishing the 96 hour m.div they offer a 36 hour plus 50,000 thesis done in turabian Doctor of Theology THd degree. I can see if you were to go this route that people would respect what you have done.... a 25,000 word thesis and a 50,000 word thesis is no easy task, plus taking the time to read all those books and do the work. What do you all think?
