  1. Luther Rice Seminary is a great school! I just completed my Master of arts in Christian Studies degree online. It was challenging at times and academically rigorous. The professors were all very helpful for the most part. The online lectures were very interesting and enlightening. The reading was challenging to keep up with at times. Overall a great experience. If one is looking for a school online that is not too expensive I would recommend Luther Rice. It is nationally accredited though, by TRACS and ABHE which are recognized by both the CHEA and US Department of Education. I would check other schools to confirm if the receiving institution will accept transfer credits though if you want to further your education.

  2. This is one of the best seminary program in the country, great academic opportunities, enables you to grow in education as far as being scholars in the ministry and knowing how to lead in correspondence with the Word of God.
