    BA Theology Program Awards

    The renowned faculty here at Holy Apostles is what initially drew me to their programs. From admission to graduation, Holy Apostles provided me with streamlined administration and a faithfully academic culture. I was so nervous to go back to school after a ten year hiatus, but HACS online format provided a simple and user-friendly format to unlock the intellectual richness of the Church. The BA degree program in Theology has opened many new doors for me professionally, which is why I have chosen to continue my education in their graduate program. It is truly a quality and Catholic formation that is paired with unmatched affordability. Thank you
