Any Accredited Theological Masters out there similar to Heriott-Watt's MBA?

    I have a good friend who is a minister who can use more training and legitimate credentials. Is there any distance program out there that is legitimately accredited and patterned similarly to Heriot-Watt's MBA, which does not require an undergrad degree?

    LU will take students with no degree into their seminary programs (limited number). But I know for a fact you can get in with a NU degree. Global takes NU degrees as well. For a $100 if you live in the US, free if you live out of the US, you can't go wrong.

    From what I have heard, there are actually a number of seminaries which will admit a limited number of "mature students" without bachelor's degrees. Usually they are initially admitted "provisionally," meaning that they have to demonstrate that they can handle the coursework, and also have to take extra courses in lieu of prerequisites.

    There are examples of seminaries admitting mature students to the master's degree. My pastor is graduating from Assemblies of God Theological Seminary with his master's degree. He was admitted without having a bachelors.

    There are some UK schools that I know of that will allow this as well: Mattersey Hall gives the following guidelines:
    Admission Requirements: Applicants under 25 require a first degree in a biblical or theological subject, or a first degree in another subject plus at least two years’ relevant ministry experience. Applicants over 25 can be accepted on the basis of their experience in ministry and do not always need formal qualifications for admission.
