Over in the St Regis thread, @mbwa shenzi, @Johann, @Stanislav, and I started a lively conversation about the Western Orthodox University. I decided to go back and do some more digging through the Western Orthodox University's website. You know, beyond just their initial homepage. The accreditation page proves quite interesting and caught my attention far more than all the initial claims to be Orthodox, Anglican, Pontifical, and whatever else: https://westernorthodox.university/university-validation/ If the agreements & degree recognition claims are all true, you can get double or triple awards for having completed the WOU 'degree' programs. One 'degree' is naturally from the esteemed WOU, but they claim that the other awards would come from accredited, government-recognized universities from around the former Spanish empire. For a fee, of course. Naturally, more digging is required. Now, with all of that said, a review of their degree programs show that they may be rather...flimsy, to say the least. For example, you can get a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Worship by leading a communion service and then writing a 2,000-word essay. It looks like the fee to get solely the WOU 'degree' would be just under $2,000. There's no telling what the Latin American or Philippine universities would charge for an additional diploma. So while they may be a fair bit cheaper than any mainstream seminary, I'm not sure what I'd do with a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Worship from, say, Honduras. Maybe we should all just go back to learning Spanish and finding some título propio degrees from Spain and Mexico?
