Reviews of AB in Theology graduates:

M. A.
◈ Studied Bachelor of Arts in Theology
◈ At Mountain View College
◈ Graduated 2000

list bulletAbout my college education: Taking my Theology degree is very interesting. Theology courses require history studies that consists of people, culture, traditions, geography, places, time and many more. It was difficult, for the language mostly used was foreign to me, yet it becomes my motivation and had fun learning Greek, Hebrew and a little of Armaic and latin.

The ardous part of it was giving out even the least detail of the history and the sense that we were dealing people with different personalities tested our patience and hardwork that we even get into their senses to avoid mistakes.

list bulletMy current job: Foreign English Teacher (Thailand)

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes, though I am not practicing my degree. I am a teacher now in Thailand and I am using all my knowledge and abilities specially in motivating the students on how to acheive their goals with descipline and respect.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: After my graduation I was absurbed right then by the Northern Mindanao Conference of the Seventh-Day Adventist Institution as an intern for ministerial work.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Theology: Everyone has its own choice. Today's generation have already lot of choices and learning lessons to those ahead of them. One must be clever enough to see what's in the future and the most important thing is that the course they must take gives happiness and satisfaction and a good future. What they think they are interested with, no matter what the salary level is concerned as long as they think they are comfortable with it, they can find success with it.
