Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary has largest spring enrollment increase in recent years
Fresno Pacific University press release
Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary reports 24 new students registered for the spring 2012 semester, the largest spring enrollment increase in recent years.
The number of new students continues to climb at the seminary, following the merger with Fresno Pacific University in June 2010. Seminary enrollment jumped by 24 percent right after the merger and has continued to increase steadily.
“Although Fresno Pacific University has not reached the official 16-day report for this semester, these preliminary spring enrollment numbers bring this academic year’s total of new seminary students to 59,” says Andy Johnson, director of seminary enrollment.
While the counseling degree program continues to expand dramatically, 13 of the new students have entered the Master of Divinity degree program to pursue pastoral ministry.
Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary is empowering leaders and transforming lives through a variety of graduate degree programs, including the Master of Divinity (M. Div.)—the industry standard for pastoral preparation—and master of arts degrees in marriage, family and child counseling (MFCC) and a variety of ministry-related fields. Approximately 130 students are currently taking courses at Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary. Program expansion online and to the FPU Visalia (CA) regional campus is slated for fall 2012.
