          • 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.

          • Testimony
            1989-1992, Master's Degree - Pastoral Studies

You will not find a better EXPERIENCE when you compare academics, professor's who truly care about your success, and campus life that is unparalleled. Give Biola strong consideration as this university will set you up nicely for ALL of your future endeavors!

          • Testimony
