Sterling College is a very small liberal arts college named after the rural Kansas town in which it resides. As a member of the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities, Sterling is the only college in this list with a Presbyterian background. Sterling began offering online degrees in 2007 with the intent of expanding access to college scholarship to students outside of its small campus. Nevertheless, in doing so it has managed to preserve in its online format the intimate feel of a small campus. The focus of Sterling’s BA in Theological Studies is personal growth according to the Christian tradition. This emphasis is reflected in course offerings such as Philosophical Concepts and Christian Thought, Ethics, and Foundations of Servant Leadership. Sterling College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission.
