From there he went on to earn a M.A. from the Pacific School or Religion in 1938 and a B.D. from the Pacific School of Religion in 1939. In 1939 he was ordained in the United Methodist Church and pastored Methodist churches in California, specifically Jamestown, Pittsburg, Sunnyvale, Millbrae, and Congregational churches in Wauregan and Central Village, Connecticut.

In 1945 Anderson earned a Ph.D. from Yale University and began a career in academia. From 1946 to 1948 he worked as an instructor in the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Colgate University. From 1948 to 1950 he was James A. Gray Associate Professor of Biblical Literature at the University of North Carolina and from 1950 to 1954 he was Joseph B.
