Are there any self-paced/competency based degree programs in religion or religious topics? I've been searching for some time and it seems that most religiously-oriented institutions, and especially seminaries, are still stuck on a rigid course/semester based thinking pattern. Criteria: 1) NA acceptable, RA preferred. No unaccredited schools. 2) Can be at any degree level (e.g. bachelor's, master's, etc.). 3) No specific denominational affiliation is necessary. 4) Degree must be in an area related to religion, whether or not specific to a religious denomination. Acceptable fields might be Religious Studies, Divinity, Theology, Church History, Bible, Biblical Studies, Hermeneutics, Biblical Hebrew (not Modern Hebrew), Judaic Studies, Islamic Studies, Quranic Arabic, Teachings of Buddha, Canon Law, Church Management, or Church Music. 5) Must be self-paced.
