it is an awesome time to do OT studies at STM now

the reb is going to tell you all that it is an awesome time to do OT studies at STM now. why is it so?
well, take a look below at who's who in the OT department:

rev dr paul barker (former vicar and OT specialist)

and if you thought that's all, we have two more in the chinese department who are bilingual:

now, didn't the reb tell you again that it is an awesome time to do OT studies in STM?


thanks for Reb's effort, finally STM recruited one literary expert!

but I am puzzled why Dr Lau's thesis examined by Gordon Wenham? since the latter is not so much of literary school....

dr lau had two external examiners. anyway, to get prof gordon wenham to be one's examiner and get through it is itself an achievement.
