  1. Distance Education has provided open access to anyone wishing to learn more in their chosen discipline. Especially at the graduate level. This is so because most graduate work is self discovery and teaching that which has been learned through professional studies and the laboratory of life experience. With the information age enhancements that are now available with technology, distance education is certain to be the continued wave for now and for the future. Trinity Graduate School of Apologetics and Theology is a leader of the emerging discipline of distant education for which I’m so greatful!
