International College Of Metaphysical Theology

Bachelor of Metaphysical Theology Degree, B.MT.

General entrance requirements are a high school diploma (or the equivalent) and college-level reading and writing ability (e.g., 2 years of college-level work, or the equivalent skill-level - based on evaluation, of past experience, education, certifications, etc.). Please note that work-study credits, volunteer service or other related types of experience may also be applied toward the entrance requirements in many cases. Our primary concern for those entering at the Bachelor's Degree level, is that the student have sufficient reading and writing ability to successfully complete the course work.

The student will be tested in all aspects of the curriculum. In addition to the ascribed format of study and testing, the student will complete outside reading, some of which is mandatory. All outside reading must be within the guidelines of the subject matter.

The bachelors degree requirements also includes the successful completion of ministerial studies from the College Seminary. Upon completion of Seminary studies, the student will be ordained. Both the Bachelors degree program and Seminary instruction are included and required before beginning the Master's Degree Program.
