    Can you list some schools that offer distance learning courses. My husband would like to get MDiv or even a seminary degree (to start) through correspondence courses. Our whole church is BJU but we aren't in that camp as much as the majority of our church is.

    We did take Heurmaneutics from Columbia Biblical Seminary and Graduate College of Missions and love their program but it was extremely time consuming and around $1000 a course.

    Thanks for your help!

    Check out Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary in Lansdale, PA. They have a number of courses available on video. Swaimj of this board will have additional details. They do have a web site, but I don't know the address off the top of my head.

    Trinity Theological Seminary is a good distance education school.

    Liberty University offers an M.Div at www.liberty.edu

    Luther Rice Seminary also offers the M.Div at www.lrs.edu

    You might also check out Columbia Evangelical Seminary. It is not accredited but has a great reputation. You'll find it at www.columbiaseminary.edu

    Trinity has been mentioned before and is a good choice as well.

    60 Hour M.A. programs are also offered at Covenant Theological Seminary and Reformed Theological Seminary.

    I earned my M.A.R. through Liberty. It is a great program, and is fully accredited. The M Div is possible, but some residence courses are required.

    The Reformed Seminary program is very good, probably a bit better than Liberty's but about twice as much per course, and they don't offer the MDiv by distance.

    I am enrolled in a doctoral program at Trinity, at Newburgh, IN which has a good program, and which is entering candidacy for full accreditation.

    In addition, Philadephia Reformed Seminary offers some good, high quality courses, as does Gordon Conwell.

    Thanks for the info. I think it is hard to find anywhere you can study Hebrew and Greek at home so most schools require some time of residency.

    I a spoke to someone at Tennessee Temple and you can do much of your work at home from their Seminary. Has anyone heard of Spergeon University? It is in England and has a program where you do a lot of work at home and spend 3 weeks there. I guess I was just interested because of the name. (And a trip to England.)

    Hey Brothers and Sisters.

    Its been a while since I have posted.

    I have some good news about an M.Div. at Liberty. Their M.Div. program does not require any residences anymore. The residences were waived. I spoke with someone from the seminary this week. I will most likely earn my M.Div. there through Distance Learning. I will most likely get advanced standing too. ANyone with an undergraduate degree in Religion, Theology, Ministry, etc. is eligible for advanced standing of up to 30 hours to my understanding. But I do know that the residency was waived.

    God Bless.

    In Christ,

    Brooks
