Michael Nicholson, 67, said he first obtained a bachelor's degree in religious education at Detroit's William Tyndale College in 1963 and followed it up with a master's in theology from the Dallas Theological Seminary, the Kalamazoo Gazette reported Monday.

Nicholson said he has since obtained 19 further master's degrees, two associate's degrees, 19 master's degrees, three specialist's degrees and one doctoral degree.

"I enjoy learning as a means of independence," Nicholson said. "I have academic freedom; I can study or do whatever I want to do."

The retired student said he is currently working on two more master's degrees at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich. He said he plans to continue his education for as long as he can.

"I find that the intellectual stimulation and the acquaintances that I have at the intellectual level make it really worthwhile," he said.
