SALINA, Kan. (AP) – Kansas Wesleyan University and the Saint Paul School of Theology are planning a degree program that will reduce the number of years students will need to earn a divinity degree.

Under a program announced Tuesday, students will be able to prepare for ordination and receive a ministry degree in six years instead of seven.

The organizations said in a news release that students in the Christian ministry major at Wesleyan would be able to complete the program in three years, rather than the current four years. Students would then study for three years at St. Paul’s to receive both their bachelor’s and Master of Divinity degrees.

Saint Paul School of Theology has campuses in Leawood, Kansas, and Oklahoma City. Kansas Wesleyan is in Salina, Kansas.
