Beginning in 1930, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary offered correspondence courses in Bible lessons to University of Texas students through the Extension Teaching Bureau of the University of Texas. The courses were originally administered by APTS President Thomas White Currie with the help of Professor Samuel Joekel as part of Currie’s work with the University of Texas YMCA’s Association of Religious Teachers, which sought to develop religious courses for which the university would give credit. APTS taught the Bible, while institutions representing other denominations offered courses covering other Christian topics. Joekel became the primary contact for the courses in the 1940s after Currie’s death, and Professor C. Ellis Nelson took over in the 1950s. It is unclear what became of the program, but it ceased to be listed in the APTS Bulletin after the 1958-1959 school year.
