    I am considering the MTS program at Nations University and have 2 questions for current students or graduates (or anyone familiar with the school)-

    1) What is the average page length of an essay for the classes (those that are required assignments)?

    2) Is it possible to complete this degree in 1 year (I could spend about 3 hours per. day 4 times a week in studies)?

    Thank you for your help!

    I graduated from Nations University back in January of 2013 and it took me about 2 years to complete with the MRS degree while they were still seeking accreditation and at that time it was designed to take a minimum of one year. They have beefed the program up since then. There are about three tests and two written assignments for each class. I've been thinking about going back. In fact, I have already been readmitted to the MTS program as they are offering me a chance to get the MTS with the need of only 18 credit hours (6 courses) of electives to complete in addition to capstone essays. Average page length on essays is probably about 2 to 3 full pages doubled space or 1000-1500 words. The program since it has been beefed up is designed to take two years but there is no limit of how many classes you can work on at any given time which means if you are determined can finish it in a year.

    Did the Nations degree help you in any material way? Were credits transferable?

    I'm studying with Nations right now. The papers are about 2,000 words minimum. Most of mine have averaged between 12-15 pages. I have been told Liberty University will accept quite a few of the graduate credits. I personally have not transferred any credits elsewhere as I intend to finish the MTS degree this year. As far as helping me in a material way, I can't say whether it will ever lead to a job/career change. I'm studying with them for personal development.

    Okay, thanks. I'd think that most students would look forward to career as well as calling.

    I am not saying it will not lead to a career. I think it really depends on what you want to do with it. I've seen people with an MTS degree get jobs with churches, non-profits, and even as hospital chaplains. Some go on and get an MDiv if they want to preach or teach. But there are a lot of factors in answering your question. Will this apply for a future career? Maybe. I was just approached with an opportunity for a teaching job next year.

    In answer to the op and really anyone who has a similar question about any given school - most universities have a Facebook page. This is true of Nations and most others I've searched for on Facebook. The people on that page are almost exclusively Nations students and they are there specifically to make social connections. My advice to to sign up for Facebook and join the Nations University page. You're more likely to get the info you seek at that site. Best of luck.
