Knox Theological Seminary offers an online Master degree in Biblical and Theological Studies.  Liberty University has an online Master degree in theology.

I graduated from Knox Theological Seminary’s online program. I didn’t take the MABTS (Master of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies), but I did complete their MACCS (Master of Arts in Christian and Classical Studies) and I can attest to the fact that their online programs are very good; very reasonable tuition, and great instructors.

Hi! Welcome to the Logos forum!

I am currently working on an online Master's degree at Kings Evangelical Divinity School. They also run a Bachelor's degree course.

It is fully online, so you never have to travel somewhere. They have international students from all over the world, so it is fine if you aren't from the UK (where the school is based). Very good school, and a really great price. Accredited with Chester University.

I went to Liberty Online. It is a good school. I intend on going back for a divinity.

There are lots of options, with Liberty being one of best with a relatively low cost. Check our your denominationally affiliated Seminaries, as well. I know that  Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary offer good programs and good prices (I received my Masters in Theological Studies from MBTS).

Hi, you can now do this in more than one way at Fuller Theological Seminary for a Master's degree, if that is what you are exploring. You can check out this link:

If you are looking for a Catholic alternative, then I can recommend Holy Apostles College and Seminary - http://www.holyapostles.edu. It is fully accredited and the program can be completed entirely online. Very affordable, too.

I got my MA in Biblical Studies and Dogmatic Theology from there.

Agape,

Steve

I've also found the Knox online classes to be very good. They're flexible enough to work for someone who has both a full time job and family commitments.

That does look like a great option if you don't care about the degree being accredited.

Accreditation is not always important but it is something to keep in mind.

Yes, I struggled with that when I applied to TNARS, but in the end, I had to focus on what was most important to me- being equipped for service to the local church, or a career in academia.  I chose the former and applied.  Now waiting on my mentor to complete his application.  They use the local church mentorship model.  The coursework looks plenty challenging enough to be respectable for sure.

You can check out Global University. http://www.globaluniversity.edu/index.cfm 

They offer training from Associates Degree level all the way up to Doctors in Ministry, and, they are accredited.
Undergraduate (http://www.globaluniversity.edu/undergrad_programs.cfm) Graduate (http://www.globaluniversity.edu/graduate_index.cfm)

They also offer non-accredited training through the Berean School of the Bible (http://www.globaluniversity.edu/berean_index.cfm). This is what I am currently pursuing.

Note: Logos offers the text books that the Berean school uses, and the school discounts the cost of the class when you show that you have already purchased the text. (https://www.logos.com/product/26766/berean-school-of-the-bible-digital-courses)

Slightly O.T. - They also offer free personal "Christian Life materials are ideal for group or individual studies" through their School for Evangelism and Discipleship (http://www.globaluniversity.edu/sed_index.cfm).

Christian Leadership University offers accredited degrees => https://www.cluonline.com/accreditation/ with 100 % distance learning.

Personally like Masters of Divinity => https://www.cluonline.com/master-of-divinity-degree-online-mdiv/ that has one required course for communicating with God so remaining courses follow desire of your heart.

As James C. appropriately wrote

James C.:

If it is important to you that your degree be accredited, then you have to ask "Accredited by whom?" because not all accrediting agencies have the same standards. In my opinion, HLC - https://www.hlcommission.org/ and ATS - http://www.ats.edu/ would be the premier accrediting agencies in the USA.

Hi Roy,

Have you ever studied with Lee University? If so, how would you compare the two schools, and what led you to choose Global / Berean?

Hi Phil.

I have not studied with Lee U.

I choose Berean mostly because of 1) Price and 2) Class structure.
The courses with Berean are cheaper, under $100 per course. (mostly because they are not for college credit).
Also, the courses do not follow a strict time table. As long as you finish the course in 6 months you are ok.

I did not consider Lee, because at the time I did not want a "Real" college course, and I did not think that thery had anything similar to Berean.
I did find out that the CoG does have courses "like" Berean but they cost more, do not appear to be as extensive, and are fewer in number.

I have looked at/considered Undergraduate Studies with Global University but I am not sure that I have the discipline needed any more.

Both are Pentecostal (Berean=Assembly of God and Lee = Church of God-Cleveland, Tn)
I grew up with the Assemblies but have for the last 13 years attended the CoG).

I have not done a good comparison but think you will find that Global is cheaper, but Lee may be better known and accepted in the market place.

One final thing. Global is, to the best of my knowledge, all distance learning. Lee has distance learning but they are also a Brick and Mortar, "Real" school.

Hi Roy,

Thanks for the reply. I have taken online classes with both Global and Lee University. I, like you, grew up in AoG and am now with the CoG. Berean does seem to have a good selection of courses, and an excellent price. Global does cost a bit more than Berean, but is also a bit less than Lee. People may also qualify for Financial Assistance, therefore still making Global a viable option.

I have enjoyed most of my classes at Lee, but am looking to go back to Global. One of the reasons you mentioned; more freedom. Global, like Berean, has a 6 month suspense for course completion. It does take a lot of self discipline to complete all assignments/projects and exams in that time, and to not bite off more than you can chew. I really like that if life gets in the way, you still have more freedom to make up and get the work done and your grades not suffer by missing a weekly online chat submission.
