Pros are the experience with the professors and students. The professors are down-to-earth people who have a passion for teaching and the students are exuberant in their zeal for learning. However, transportation does not exist since it is a commuter school and job placement is a concern as well.

I feel that the pro of this graduate program is the flexibility of the schedule and the con is how expensive the program is.

Along with a talented and knowledgeable faculty, Asbury has two of the top New Testament scholars in the world (Keener and Witherington). The staff is helpful with the details of campus life from the initial transition to finding the aid and resources one needs. The dorms are new and well thought out and there are new family units that help to foster community. The area is safe, though a bit isolated. I am glad to be a part of Asbury.

I am really enjoying the diversity of the students and instructors at Asbury. Overall I am very pleased with my experiences here. I do wish there was more communication from the Financial Aid department.

Pros -small town, great community, small classes, lots of personal attention, low cost, authentic Christian community, fantastic ethos Cons-still not as competitive of other major Seminaries like Duke, SMU, or Fuller -- needs better customer service

Asbury Seminary is an excellent school for a theological education. The unique Wesleyan perspective at an independent school allows for a variety of opinions regarding theological topics and allows for training for service in multiple denominations. When it comes to Master's-Level Students intending to pursue a PhD, Asbury falls short. They do not have a career services or further education department. The PhD program they offer themselves is too new to be of any significant value in the academic world. I would highly recommend Asbury for an MDiv or other MA degree for those intending on working within non-academic ministry, if the student can get financial aid to pay for the degree. For those intending on teaching at a university or seminary, I would hesitantly recommend Asbury for an MA/MDiv with the warning that students will need to find assistance elsewhere when pursuing a PhD.

Asbury Theological Seminary is a conservative Christian institution dedicated to equipping men and women to take the whole Gospel to the whole world using their unique gifts and abilities. Each student is challenged to let course materials and God's Word transform them as much as they are tasked with being vessels through which it transforms the world. Also, if you are looking for a topnotch online or distance education program, Asbury's Extended Learning Campus is a fully ATS accredited program designed to equip men and women for ministry as they are daily engaged in the ministry of the church.
