NationsUniversity is incorporated in the state of Louisiana. As a degree-granting institution, the school offers three degrees: (1) the Bachelor of Religious Studies (B.R.S.), the Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) and the Master of Divinity (M.Div.).

Discover quality.

The reason that NationsUniversity exists is to make a college-level education in religious and theological studies available to highly motivated students who want to prepare for church leadership but are unable to find that education due to financial or other practical reasons. We have been able to provide quality independent study courses at minimal cost to the students by not having a physical campus, by recruiting university professors and other professionals to volunteer their expertise and services, and by receiving generous support from friends who share our goal.

NationsUniversity is an accredited member of the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC). The DEAC is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

NationsUniversity has given me a broader base from which I can draw knowledge and structure which fuels everything I do.
