Have you ever wanted to do an M.A. in Biblical Studies? Now you can. I’ve composed a great curriculum for you from open courses through iTunes U and university web pages (the selection is based on my own biases and whims as well as the available offerings). While there are a few more classes than you might encounter in a traditional M.A. program, you don’t have a thesis or big research papers to submit so it balances out. If you make it through the entire program drop me a line and I’ll email you a diploma.
