In another thread, the discussion strayed from giving advice about a particular program to talking about unaccredited degrees. Moreover, another person posted a thread questioning the point of a D.Min. Therefore, following the same regard, I would like to know what is the point of unaccredited degrees at this time? At one point, they were great for pastors who could not travel, or leave ministry. However, there are far too many options available from regionally, or nationally accredited schools. Then there is the cost, again, many are cheaper, but is the less money worth it? Are you cheating yourself, and being a good steward of your money? I do not want to bash unaccredited institutions, but I would like to discuss, what is the point with accredited institutions offering reasonably priced, distance education? Let the fun begin!
