President of

Troy State University

Dothan, Evaluates Bethany

 

"The number of credit hours required for the degree program are in keeping with other colleges including secular universities. Furthermore, area of study and structure of degrees (From Bethany) is comparable to the same degrees at older and better known Bible College and Seminaries. It is my professional opinion that Bethany Divinity College and Seminary maintains the integrity of its Statement of Purpose and Mission in all areas.”

(Mr Paul is the former president of Troy State University, now Troy University, Dothan Campus who retired in January 1986. He was hired by Bethany to evaluate the College and Seminary’s programs of study as well as its approach to education).
