Chesapeake, VA (PRWEB) March 4, 2009
For the third year in a row, readers of the Baker's Guide to Christian Distance Education website have selected online doctoral degrees as the most popular Christian online college degree programs. Limited residency doctorate degrees from Greenwich Theological Seminary (in partnership with North-West University), Baptist Bible College and Seminary, and Amridge University were the most popular accredited Christian distance degrees based on visits to the BakersGuide.com Christian Distance Learning Degree and Program Directory.
The most popular degree listing was the Ph.D. in Theology offered by Greenwich Theological Seminary (in partnership with North-West University), followed by the Ph.D. in Biblical Studies offered by Baptist Bible College and Seminary, and then a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies offered by Amridge University. Additionally, Northwest Nazarene University's online Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree was the most popular master's program while City Vision College's Bachelor of Arts in Missions (Urban Missions Emphasis) was the top undergraduate program. In the K-12 and homeschooling category, A Beka Academy's accredited DVD and traditional programs for kindergarten through high school took most popular honors.
According to Jason D. Baker, author of the Baker's Guide to Christian Distance Education website, online doctoral degrees are a popular topic of inquiry. "I regularly receive email inquiries from Christians looking for quality accredited doctoral programs. Often these come from pastors, teachers, and missionaries looking for programs geared toward experienced leaders. With the current economic challenges, I suspect that interest in online Ph.D., Ed.D., and D.Min. degree programs will continue to grow."
