For those who want to study a particular Bible or ministry topic, the School of Divinity offers several non-degree opportunities as career development for ministers, church leaders and others who simply desire professional development without pursuing a graduate degree. Non-degree programs cost $330 per credit hour and are not eligible for financial aid. Due to current federal regulations, these programs are only available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.
Students may complete up to 18 semester hours under this admissions status. Coursework is available in Biblical Studies, Church Leadership and Practical Ministry.
Regent makes this continued training for ministers convenient, offering a variety of venues for completing non-degree programs available, including on-campus courses, one-week intensive courses (modular), online courses and independent studies.
In addition, the School of Divinity offers the following specialized non-degree programs:
Advanced Courses in Theological Studies (A.C.T.S.)
Spouse Observer Program
Pastors' Lifelong Learning Program
Alumni Continuing Education Program
Regent's non-degree programs are designed as continuing education for ministers and other theologians who are seeking inspiration and meaningful direction on how to lead a church. Read course descriptions and more detailed program information in our academic catalog.
