    Cool! What are your plans from here?




    I am working as an in-house counsel for a multinational corp in the Greater China region. This degree gives me an opportunity to get an adjunct job in the region.

    Fascinating! The closest I get to knowing anything about that is having watched "Empire of the Sun" a long time ago.

    I have remarked that my$149-special-account was going to expire and managed to do the 1-credit-course "The Essentials of Managing Conflict" in 47 minutes!

    I have two kids amassing ingredients for their eventual respective Charter Oak burritos, and this last year from has been a miracle. They each still have a course or two they won't make before their years end, but I don't mind paying for an extra month or two after what they've gotten out of this.

  16. Finished my qualification exams earlier this month in the Ph.D. Family Consumer Science Program at Texas Tech and also handed in the first draft of my first three chapters. My chair wants me to defend by December this year, will keep everyone updated on progress. Was going to update this in the PhD FCSE thread I started last year but it looks like it got locked.

    Looking forward to being done soon, hoping to find a full time financial planning professor position.

    I received two different credentials in the mail from seminaries this week via online study. I already have a bachelors and two masters degrees in the social sciences done in the traditional manner. Although I have no interest in being a professional church worker. three years ago I enrolled in these programs and completed both.

    North American Lutheran Seminary - Certificate in Lutheran Studies, (ATS accredited)
    Independent Lutheran Seminary - Masters in Theological Studies in Orthodox Lutheran Theology (unaccredited)

    I enjoyed both programs immensely. I just started working on a Th. M from Independent Lutheran Seminary. I am looking at a masters in Church History next.

    How exactly are these degree programs at ILS structured? I cannot figure it out from the website. Are they the same as the sequence of modules listed, or are there other courses?

    Is it all free?

    How long do the programs take?

    Must one be a Lutheran to enroll?

    (1) For every book you read in a module you are given a test with a varied number of questions that you email back. For the MTS you also have to visit three churches, one liturgical, one non-liturgical and one sorta cultish and evaluate the service and other aspects of the church.

    (2) How long it takes depends on how fast a reader you are. The MTS took me a year and a half because there is no semester type system.

    (3) Yes, it is free. You do have to write a little essay as part of the application about why you want to study there. All the books that were assigned for the MTS were very conservative Lutheran books from mostly from the late 19th Century to around the 1930's. One a translation from right after Luther's time. Folks from other Communions might not find this appealing. I am not sure about non-Lutherans being allowed in. I am a very strict Lutheran confessionalist so I liked it. Most Liberal Lutherans might not find this program appealing.

    When I finally do my speedrun, I'll have to thank as well as the sister forum, I gotta be honest there is a lot of information to understand, but it's well worth if I save 10k USD.
