Now that you're oriented to the JPCatholic campus, Sacramental Life and Support Staff, let's introduce you to your professors and get you ready to begin your Masters program!
MA in Biblical Theology Faculty:
Dr. Michael Barber:
He received a PhD from Fuller Theological Seminary, and also holds a BA in Theology and Philosophy from Azusa Pacific University and a MA from Franciscan University.

Dr. Barber was granted the mandatum by Robert Brom, while bishop of San Diego, as an ecclesial recognition of his posture and commitment to always teach in communion with the Church. He lives in San Diego with his wife Kimberly and their five children.
Dr. John Kincaid:
He received his PhD with distinction, studying under Prof. Michael Waldstein, at Ave Maria University. He received a Th.M. from Duke Divinity School and a M.A. in Theology (MA) from Covenant Theological Seminary.

Prof. Kincaid was granted the mandatum by Cirilio Flores, the late bishop of San Diego. He lives in Escondido with his wife Kristen and their five children.
Academic Calendar & Booklists
You can find the Academic Calendar on the JPCatholic website,
Verbum Bible Software
At the start of the program you will be required to purchase the JPCatholic Student Version of Verbum Bible Software. If you aren't familiar Verbum, as described on their website, is:

"...more than a digital library. By giving you unparalleled access to a vast number of Catholic books, it will transform the way you interact with the Tradition. Instead of just reading volumes individually, you can explore your entire library by topic or reference and follow ideas through multiple texts. Link from any quote to its source with a click, or double-click a word to look it up. Every word is an opportunity for deeper study."

The books and resources contained within the JPCatholic Student Version of Verbum was handpicked by Dr. Barber. He has worked closely with Verbum to provide you with this worthwhile and affordable tool.
eLearning New Student Guide
You should have received the eLearning New Student Guide. It contains key information like:
Detailed computer and technology requirements
What to expect before the quarter begins
What to expect on the first day of the quarter
What to expect on the first day of your course
How to set or reset your password
How to download audio or video files
Various other tips and tricks
I recommend you review this document before you begin the MA program and then keep it close by for reference, as needed.
Should you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your Masters in Biblical Theology.
