Making the right decision about where to study
Bachelors - Masters - Doctorate - Ministerial Certification - Practitioner - Licenced Teacher -
First you need to ask yourself what do you want from your studies?
Do you want to become a minister? Or a practiioner (Spiritual healer / counselor) or perhaps a teacher? Or is your main focus on Spiritual Development without a goal of certification? There are different programs for these things
Remember that religious degrees are not really helpful outside the organization that grants it. Shocker! That's right. The Institution may even be certified by some "Accredation Organization" but this does not mean your degree will carry any weight outside the New Thought World. Thus you need to carefully consider the cost of your degree and if it exceeds $6,000 you should seriously consider going to a regular university and not to a Divinity School!
Remember that you need to ask lots of questions and GET the answers. Some of these institutes engage in Spiritual poloitds meaning they might let you in their Teacher program and then change their minds and decide that you aren't their cup of tea, put your through an inquisition and you find you wasted all your time and money. Don't take chances, Ask Questions and GET answers.
