A new partnership between the University of Mobile and New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary allows students to save time and money by earning both their bachelor of arts and master of divinity degrees in just five years.
The Accelerated B.A.+M.Div. program reduces by two years the time it takes for a student to earn both a bachelor’s degree from the University of Mobile and an M.Div. from New Orleans Seminary.
“This agreement will greatly benefit both institutions. We are pleased to partner with our colleagues in New Orleans and hope this is just the start of many such opportunities,” said Lonnie Burnett, interim president of the University of Mobile, which is affiliated with the Alabama Baptist Convention.
Jamie Dew, president of New Orleans Seminary, said, “This is an exciting time in our history to partner with the University of Mobile to train students for the mission of Christ. This partnership will enable students to maximize their time and get to the field more quickly.”
The agreement allows selected undergraduate courses taken at UM to apply toward the master’s program at NOBTS. UM students also may qualify for advanced placement in biblical language courses.
