Office of the President
Greetings. It's a pleasure to welcome you to RTS's Department of Global Education and a privilege to be the president of this flexible approach to graduate-level theological education. My name is Andy Peterson, and I live with my family in Charlotte, North Carolina. To date, RTS Global offers three convenient, accredited 100% distance Masters of Arts degrees..
How did I get here? Good question. Briefly, my professional roadmap has included licensed psychologist in Pennsylvania, where I worked for six years at a community mental health center, professor of psychology for counseling and teacher training courses for Grove City College, a four-year liberal arts college north of Pittsburgh, professor of pastoral counseling at a seminary in Escondido, California, and educational technologist at Santa Fe Foundation in Solana Beach. Afterward, I joined UC San Diego, where we established the first Multimedia Development Center, for faculty development of digital presentations in 1995. While in southern California, I consulted with businesses and schools on the use of educational technology and continue to do that consulting with distance learning concepts now.
My professional themes are education, business and counseling with help from theology, as well as technology. Tours in academia have been at Western Washington University (BA, Psychology), UC Berkeley (MA, Educational Psychology), and University of Pittsburgh (Ph.D., Educational Communications and Technology).
Welcome to RTS Global Education, and we look forward to hearing from you!
