Please read the title carefully and only offer suggestions if you know of any good Seminaries that offer online MDiv programs. My friend has very limited income and wants to pursue an MDiv. While a completely online program is not ideal, it's not really an option for him to move from Okinawa. Also, given the time differences, the courses that some offer via distant education would meet during his work day.

Any ideas? Do any have satellite distant education programs in the Far East?

Any help is appreciated.

A couple of questions:
-Is he looking for an accredited program? If not, there are some options. I've listed many of them at my site: Reformed Distance Theological Education Programs. The main unaccredited ones that provide an M.Div. are Whitefield and Birmingham.
-Is he only wanting schools that would describe themselves as Reformed? I believe there are other options that are accredited, but not Reformed.

I forgot to mention one more: Miami International Theological Seminary (MINTS). They have study centers (not sure where) and they have online course offerings as well. They utilize some materials from Covenant and ThirdMill, as well as some of their own. It's from a Reformed perspective, and is used widely around the world. They use Moodle for online classes.

The RPCNA has a seminary in Japan called Kobe Theological Hall. I could give a contact email address to see what they could do to work with him. I do not know if they offer the MDiv COMPLETELY online. I really don't understand how it could be done totally online because of the practical theology aspect of the training.
