    My name is Mildred Bigelow. I would like to study Doctor of Biblical Studies, but I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish obtained at Western Connecticut State University in 2003 and a Master’s Degree in Spanish at Southern Connecticut State University in 2009. I can register in this Doctor Degree Program. Also, I want to know if this program and books offers in Spanish Language. In addition, How many I have to finish this program.

  3. Sir, plz tell me the registration cost, graduation cost, and anything else I’ve missed. My youngest, age 19 mo.s was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. While my husband and sister showed unwaverable faith, my mind was filled with intrusive thoughts of tiny white caskets. This was my life, every single day. After two years, my daughter survived! She is currently 7:)
    Unfortunately, with me having no choice but to close my practice and learning that I had lupus just a few weeks after my sister died of it (chronic kidney failure) just a year ago, I was advices to stay home awhile. Unfortunately, that doesn’t pay the bills. Plz let me hear back on the prices soon. I’m very interested in this course!

  4. I hope to hear from u soon!
