Gustavo M. in Texas – “After looking at many online Catholic universities I chose Holy Apostles because it has a degree I wish to earn, it is online, it has an affordable price, and it is a seminary.  Teaching and defending my faith is something I really enjoy and I want to delve deeper into by attending school.  I look forward to formalizing my knowledge with a degree to better evangelize and bring more people to Jesus Christ. (MA in Theology / Apologetics, Spring 2019)

Aldo L. in Louisiana – “I feel a calling to pursue teaching philosophy in an adjunct capacity. An area I would like to explore is Thomistic realism and its synthesis with our modern scientific understanding of the world. This is an area where my background in engineering can interplay with Aquinas while also further inform and sharpen my evangelization efforts. I know that Holy Apostles College and Seminary would be a challenging and fruitful place for me to continue my education towards a doctorate in Philosophy while also enriching my Catholic faith.” (MA in Philosophy / Christian Wisdom, Spring 2019)

Margaret L. in Massachusetts – “I have looked at a number of Master’s degrees at different universities and find that Holy Apostles College offers the best program which will not interrupt my work schedule and allow me to pursue my education. Moreover it offers a concentration in Apologetics which I have not found at another college and courses seemed to be geared to the orthodox teachings of the Church. I am excited at the prospect of learning with other students who love the church as much as I do and wish to serve others in and out of the Church in a coherent, intelligent and thoughtful way.” (MA in Theology / Apologetics, Spring 2019)

Angela W. in California – “Married for over 4 years and a homemaker, I am looking to expand my knowledge of the Catholic Faith through the advanced study of Catholic Theology. The knowledge gained from completing Holy Apostles’ MA in Theology program would enrich family life and assist in instilling and teaching pertinent values to others. My hope is to continually strive toward being a light that burns brightly for Christ: whether in the form of daily uplifting personal encounters with others, instructing children in the Faith, performing Christian music in ministry, or writing works that glorify God. Knowledge of Christ, His Church, and Scripture help to accomplish the goal of keeping the spiritual flame ablaze!”  (MA in Theology / General Studies, Spring 2019)
