Hello, my son is considering various colleges that provide online courses.

He's considering getting a Bachelors degree in Christian Ministry, Practical Theology, or something similar at a reasonable price. Do you have any suggestions?

Also, one college he's considering is Southeastern University in Lakeview, Florida, anyone have experience with that?

Thank you.

You might want to consider Liberty University online. Here is the link:

Keep in mind that a lot of online "colleges" aren't properly accredited. Be careful to check accreditation before you make a choice. Since you're choosing online, he may be just as well off studying the material on his own and then using portfolio review, testing, etc. at a regular state university with an online division and his particular major. There's not that much difference unless he's going to attend in person.

Incidently, why online? My degree was officially from Thomas Edison State University and cobbled together from testing, portfolio review, community college, a couple online colleges (TESC, Regis), and a local college (University of Missouri - St. Louis). I definitely would have taken more courses in person if I weren't handicapped, though.

Colorado State University Pueblo will also be useful for this purpose, and also Western Governors University will be a good choice both universities are providing quality education and these are also inexpensive. And these would also be useful for those who are not the state resident.

If you do some or most of your courses online, make sure that the school is traditional "bricks and mortar" and is regionally accredited. That way your degree is credible.

Villanova University is one such place. It certainly has one of the most distinguished online programs in place.

I don't think much of either school, but both Liberty University and Regent University have used the word "Christian" in their self-descriptions. My problem with these two schools is that I don't think either is very good academically.

Unfortunately, the word "Christian" has been hijacked by a number of hate-groups so you may wish to consider using the term "religious" or "faith-based" to describe schools.
