The pros of my online graduate program is my student services adviser and financial representative that guide me throughout completion of my program. I have free access to the dissertation adviser, instructors and program directors that are all programmatic experts. My program is flexible, convenient and accessible.

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2013

I enjoyed this accredited program because it allowed me to pursue my masters while staying home with my son. We also traveled a lot due to my husband's job and this allowed me to remain a continuous student.The program was challenging but I feel like I had a lot of support from the faculty and staff.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this graduate program is that it has the best facualty and staff. This program is designed to challenge our skills and make us better therapists in the future. Other pros are the quality of classes, the number of hours of direct experience given, and the cohort we are a part that gives us the additional support to get through the days and weeks to come. The only con to this program is the internalizing that has to take place because of the nature of what we do can't be shared.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

One of my favorite things about ACU, both in the graduate and undergraduate level, is the accessibility of the professors. They not are passionate about their different respective subjects, but they are also passionate about the success of their students while in school, and beyond their academic careers. I also have really enjoyed the dynamic of my classes. They are composed of a couple of students who are my age, (recent graduates from the undergraduate level). However, there are also many students who are much older than myself who are full-time ministers. These other students help to offer wisdom and insight from the field of ministry due to their personal life experience.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

ACU is a small community and has small class sizes which makes it perfect for studying at the graduate level, especially in psychology. We are encouraged to think work smarter and not harder. Each program is its own cohort that generally takes classes together which makes it easy to make friends and study buddies. Everyone in town is extremely friendly and faculty genuinely care about students who work hard for what they want.
