February 4, 2009 : University Advancement staff

From left, Dr. Daniel Mitchell, Academic Dean at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary; Dr. Ergun Caner, LBTS president; Dr. Emir Caner, president of Truett-McConnell College in Georgia; and Liberty University Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr. sign an agreement to offer students who graduate as religion majors from Truett-McConnell the opportunity to receive advanced standing when they enroll in the Master of Divinity, Master of Religious Education, or the Master of Arts in Religion at LBTS. Students must complete qualifying courses at their undergraduate school.

Advanced standing potentially shortens the length of time it takes to earn a Master of Divinity by 30 hours, or one academic year. This offer is available for both LBTS residential and online programs.

Truett-McConnell College is affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention.
