At this time St. Paul's Anglican Theological Seminary only offers one course of study which is specifically designed to prepare postulants for Holy Orders. To earn the M.A. in Anglican Ministry, you will have to complete 76 Semester Hours through the following  courses. After you have successfully completed all  courses, you will be mailed your degree and a set of transcripts showing the work you have completed. You must go to the "Enroll" page and get registered before starting any of the courses. This course was designed to be a three year program but can be completed at the students own pace. For those who are not seeking priesthood but aspire to the deaconate, contact us and we can prescribe a less intensive course of study based on this one.

St. Paul’s Anglican Theological Seminary is not accredited nor does it seek accreditation by any agency that is affiliated with or endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE).

We need no secular accreditation because we offer ONLY religious studies leading only to religious oriented degrees, diplomas and certificates. We offer NO secular vocational training, certificates, degrees or diplomas.

About Accreditation

Accreditation in the USA is purely a voluntary process.

Accreditation is NOT required in the USA.

Accreditation is NOT a function of the United States government.

Accreditation is recognition of a school by an organization set up to establish guidelines for colleges and other schools. There are government accrediting agencies (associated with the U.S. Department of Education - DOE), and private agencies, associations, commissions, councils and unions which are NOT associated in any manner with the U.S. Department of Education (DOE). Religious schools, such as St. Paul’s Anglican Theological Seminary need no secular accreditation because no secular studies are offered.

Religious School Accreditation

Many religious schools choose not to be accredited at all. The majority of bible colleges, bible institutes, preacher schools and theological seminaries do not accept or seek government endorsement (accreditation) at any level in order to maintain their strict separation of church and state. Historically, governments at all levels continually exert pressure to control all educational institutions. Too often the government made rules and regulations are contrary to the teaching of the Holy Bible.

Credits for Non-Accredited Religious Schools are Widely Accepted

Credits earned by students through non-accredited religious schools are widely accepted by churches, bible colleges, mission boards and secular employers as college-level work.
