A Missing Ingredient

Here is an thorough article in New Pantegruel on the Christian research university they are trying to get build at Baylor. (Here is another article from Christianity Today).

Christendom is badly in need of a biblical, esp. Reformed graduate institution that really gives out degrees in the humanities. (It looks as though Baylor will end up being too broadly Christian to be really distinctive in its offerings.) The sciences would be nice too, but this is really expensive. Toronto's Institute of Christian Studies threatened to become such a graduate school, but it never really branched out beyond being a department of applied philosophy. One can also cobble together something resembling a masters degree in the humanities from Regent College.

What other possibilities are out there? Where can one go to get a masters in art history or a PhD in English literature or American history that is distinctly Christian?
