Christian Online Degrees, Are they legit?

Just a few short years ago the concept of an online degree conjured up images of a shady diploma mill operating from someone’s basement. Today, just like top universities like UOP, many of the top Christian colleges and seminaries are offering online degree bachelor degrees in areas such accounting, business, Biblical studies, education, psychology and criminal justice .

Online degree programs offer the flexibility to study at your own pace, from the comfort of your home, while working a full time job and maintaining some semblance of a family life.  Here are a few of the top Christian colleges and universities offering online degree programs.

  3. Luis, thanks for the updated info on Liberty. I was just on the campus last week for the East Coast Homeschool Basketball Championship. I was amazed at how much new construction and renovation is taking place. My daughter will be a rising high school senior and has her heart set on attending Liberty!
