Do you ever use a therapy technique where you just sit down two of your clients and have them bounce their feelings off each other?

i don't exactly have the hardest degrees, and i would assume most Dr's would enjoy forums.

difficulty smificulty, it's all about willpower. i was mediocre at math when i entered college, all i needed was some aerial motivation.

Philosophy Major, Psychology Minor. Also whoever said that school is the easiest part of success is 100% right.

considering your major and minor i would say so.

I did two years of Civil Engineering before switching to my current major, Criminology (with a minor in psychology).

On my transcript it says Asian Studies, but I had more credits in Religious Studies, and spent most of my final two years in that faculty.

kinda wish i had willpower. it comes in doses.

mostly rolling off an affinity for math and interest in fun stuffs, but that alone doesn't really cut it anymore, so have to do a bit of grinding.

#26 Posted by TwistedShade (3138 posts) -

To answer the OP not starting until the fall. But I will probably go into Computer Science, although that may change since i'm really quite terrible at even basic mathematics.

#27 Posted by coolbeans90 (21305 posts) -

Anyway, I am engineering science and mechanics with an emphasis in engineering physics which will net me a minor in both math and physics. Yes, it is ABET accredited.

not my point, finding a job in philosophy is so much harder than the schooling, other majors can't compare.

Not sure, yet. I was thinking about going to grad school for aero b/c planes are fun, there is a bit in the way of aerospace in the NOVA area, and from what I gather, it pays reasonably well. Could do the same for mechanical, but I am not quite as interested in that. The other thought was perhaps going to medical school if I keep good grades, but that would entail doing a few things.

funny usually the med students switch to engineering.

I wasn't looking for a job in philosophy or psychology... I was looking to learn things that were important to me. It was a perfect foundation for me.

Bioengineering. I might also minor in accounting. And I plan on using the bioengineering degree to get into medical school.

[QUOTE="mindstorm"]Holding a BA in Christian Studies and working on an MDiv in Christian Ministry.frannkzappa

what are the courses like?

The former degree dealt heavily with understanding the text of Scripture through such classes as Hermeneutics (interpretation of Scripture) and various book studies in Scripture. There were also classes dealing with counseling within the context of pastoral ministry and various research oriented classes.

The current degree deals more heavily with studying the original languages of Scripture (Greek and Hebrew), preaching, pastoral ministry, theology, and studies on various books in Scripture.

In other words, I heavily enjoy my classes. :P

how did they deal with the differing interpretations among sects? do you study all or do they just focus on the schools particular sect (if they have one).

do you get into theological metaphysics, for example how many angles can fit on the head of pin and what not?

With regard to sects or denominations, though the schools themselves are Southern Baptist you need not be Southern Baptist to attend them. Grades are more decided upon the students ability to argue their point (regardless of whether the professor agrees with the conclusion) and the student's ability to recollect the material from notes and reading. However, as I myself am Southern Baptist I especially do not have too much of an issue with any disagreements.

With regard to the philosophical side of things, most of that is restricted to specific classes. My desire is to pastor a church of stubborn people to love their God and love their community. As such, that sort of question would be of secondary importance to me. Back when I first started with my BA I did very much enjoy the more philosophical side of theology and apologetics but my reasoning was more because it made me feel intellectually superior. As such, my reasoning for studying such things were quite selfish in nature. Certainly I still am required to take such classes as Philosophy of Religion but it's a minor point to my degree.

My point is this - I want to know what the Bible does clearly state. All that is theologically related that is merely assumed is of much less importance to me.

the great apologetics are possibly my favorite part about the christian religion (academically). the way they used platonic styled polemics always deeply impressed me, and are all great reads be you christian or otherwise .

1 Peter 3:15 states, "But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect." I have so greatly loved this passage as I have grown as a Christian. During my time of studying apologetics the defense and reasoning aspect of this verse were of most significance to me. I loved studying anything and everything related to defending the faith. However, over time my emphasis changed. My greatest passion in studying has begun to be less with regard to the philosophical reasoning behind the Christian faith and more with regard to the hope within the Christian faith. If I can reason with the best of them and do not live as if I have a hope in Christ then there will be no person asking for the reason for that hope. As such, the intellectualism behind the faith becomes a vain ambition that is only for my own benefit. My emphasis in life has therefore now become to find my joy in Christ and not some intellectual pursuit.
