          • Testimony
            2012-2015, Master's in Christian Apologetics

            I have looked at a number of universities and decided on Biola because they had a distance program. This was important to me because a degree in Christian Apologetics is a second career for me that is primarily paid for by my first career. I wish they had more options for distance learning like other colleges but this one turned out to be a great experience. As for the faculty, they are top tier. It was an enlightening experience that was mediated by the professors. Also have to get a shout out to the Apologetics department staff.
