If you are discerning graduate studies, we would like to introduce you to our distance education program. This webinar will begin with a short reflection from one of our faculty members on this great feast of St. Cecilia. This reflection will be followed by an overview of the MA Theology degree, and then you can expect to learn more about how we uniquely do distance education and what you can expect from your experience. At the end we will leave time for all your questions!

Dr. Benjamin Akers
Associate Professor of Theology; Associate Dean @Augustine Institute
Associate Professor of Theology | Associate Dean I’ve always had a desire to participate in the work of the New Evangelization through teaching. One of the greatest gifts I’ve received in my life is to have incredible teachers and mentors who have introduced me to the rich theological tradition of the Catholic Faith and helped open my mind to the story of salvation found in the Sacred Scriptures (cf. Lk 24:45). And they encouraged me to do the same for others. I’ve been able to participate in this work through evangelization on college campuses with FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) and in theological and catechetical formation in the Archdiocese of Denver as director of the Denver Catholic Biblical School and Catechetical School and adjunct for the St. John Vianney Theological Seminary. My experience living and studying in the heart of the Catholic Church in Rome, Italy, has inspired me to teach theology in a way that integrates history, art, literature and spiritual
Dr. Mark Giszczak
Associate Professor of Sacred Scripture @Augustine Institute
I have the great blessing to be a professor at my alma mater, the Augustine Institute, where I have been teaching since 2010. I have a passion for Scripture and I love helping Catholics read, pray, and understand the Bible. We have such a rich treasury in God’s word and yet so much of it remains unexplored by so many. I want to help others drink deeply from Scripture as a source of spiritual sustenance. In particular, I am deeply interested in the oft-overlooked texts of the Old Testament. I wrote my dissertation on the characters in the Song of Songs and in my research, I continue to explore the fascinating details of this biblical book and many others. In 2015, I wrote a book on the tough parts of the Bible called Light on the Dark Passages of Scripture. I have also contributed to the Augustine Institute’s Bible in a Year and to the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible. I write regularly on my blog, CatholicBibleStudent.com, and occasionally at CatholicExchange.com.
