There is a variety of great New Thought Degree programs:

They offer a full range of credentials and degrees that enable one to embark on a New Thought ministry anywhere in the world.

- New Thought Exotic studies program offers certificates and more while you study in exotic locations around the world such as Cairo, Juarez, Bogata, the Amazon, Belgian Congo, China, Burma, East Timor, the Tuvalos Islands and even Libya.
Remember that religious degrees are not that 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 politics 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.
