I knew this day would come. I spent way to long getting my BA so when I was done I didn’t want to think about education anymore. I made a mistake this week. It has been 4 years since I finished my undergrad degree so I guess the disdain I have for learning has worn off. I was reading Group magazine and saw an ad for Seminary. That is all it took.
Next thing I know I’m looking at the website and then checked out about a dozen other seminary programs. Most cost too much, but I found that Liberty caps their tuition for Seminary at $2000 per semester for 9-15 hours. I can complete my Master of Arts in Theology, a 36 hour program, in one year online for about $6500. Then, if I want, I can go back to get a 60 hour degree and only need to take 24 hours extra in another year or two. After that I could get my M.Div. which is 90 credits and will only have to take the last 30 credits.
Of course, taking 12 credits a semester online for a year straight is gonna be murder, so I am feeling very anxious about this fall. Of course this all assumes I’m able to get some things in place that will let me cut back some on my church hours and also pay the $2150 per semester.
