Christian College Offers Online Degrees
While there are a number of online colleges to choose from, there aren't many Christian colleges that offer online degrees. However, Belhaven College in Jackson, Mississippi is changing that. They have recently started offering an online associate's and bachelor's degree that students can complete entirely online. According to SolancoNews:
Since 1883, Belhaven College, in Jackson, Miss., has been a leader in providing comprehensive Christian education. President Roger Parrott says, "the new Virtual Online Education Program emphasizes our commitment to helping students all over the world, including missionaries, their children and others, receive a Christ-centered education," while also keeping up with family, ministry and work responsibilities.
President Parrott, a leader in the Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization for 20 years, says the Virtual Online Education Program equips Christians both academically and spiritually for positions in mission, ministry or business. President Parrott adds that the Virtual Online Education Program combines Belhaven's 15 years of adult education success, with a strong commitment to using virtual technology to meet the needs of students who are increasingly seeking online education. According to one education report, over 75% of all prospective college students are interested in enrolling in online education courses.
Belhaven College is offering their online Bachelor of Science in Management and Associate of Arts degrees in the fall semester of 2007 and the spring semester of 2008. Applications are now being accepted. Administrators hope to expand their online degree offerings in future years.
