Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2011

The school counseling program has excellent professors who are very knowledgeable in the field. Many of them have their doctorate degrees and many years of experience in various school districts. They do a good job of supporting our education and being available for questions and feedback as needed. The program structure could use some work, however, because it is not laid out in a very convenient way. Many students were surprised when we had to look for a practicum site last minute. I believe the department will work on these changes, as they have received this feedback.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2009

As a graduate of the MA and PsyD program, I was deeply disappointed with the learning culture at APU. Under it's current leadership, I watched the graduate psychology department shift their focus away from the "God First" Christian values and academic rigor promoted by the university toward an emphasis on the ideology of political correctness. If you ascribe to politics of the left, you will feel right at home. If planning to attend this program, expect to hear the drone of progressive rhetoric about the evils of white privilege, micro-aggressions, homophobia, inclusivity, xenophobia, and stereotyping. While multicultural diversity and liberal values are celebrated at APU, those with different views would do well to either abandon their more conservative values, remain silent, or be judged and labeled.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

Azusa Pacific University is a Christian university in Azusa, California. The university unfortunately resides in an area of town that is not particularly safe. The administration was welcoming and helpful. I will say that I have noticed that the online program in Information Technology moved very quickly and it was difficult to absorb the information. I felt that the projects that were given to us were not usually helpful in gaining an understanding of the subject. It is imperative for students to understand that they will need to be very aggressive in taking on tasks outside of their studies to gain experience if they do not have experience in their field of interest already. Overall, Azusa Pacific University was a good choice for me.

I was able to get practical skills that I still use everyday in my profession. Azusa's flexible scheduling allowed me to work and take classes at the same time so that I didnÍt have to experience a loss of income.

The Masters of Divinity Program at Azusa Pacific University (APU) is as interdependent as the world. In particular, "an important feature of the program is [its] intentional integration of academic and experimental components" that will prepare leaders for vocational ministry in our diverse and technological world. As a result of our intricate society, APU has proactively designed a program that will equip students to meet future demands and to resolve problems that are expected in this life. From integrated courses to supervised ministry, the Divinity Program at APU is a reflection of its forward-thinking faculty and their response to global interdependence.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Azusa Pacific University is a school who truly cares about their students. They provide numerous resources to set students up for success after graduation. Resources include, but are not limited to, interview preparation, resume assistance and job fairs. Each professor I had at the university was a professional who worked in the field I was studying: school counseling. This allowed me to gain additional networking contacts and learn from people who had first hand experience what the field of school counseling was like. Through my professors, I gained an internship opportunity, a wealth of knowledge, and future contacts if I ever need assistance. Each class had assignments that were directly related to my future career of school counseling. By going to Azusa Pacific University, I feel I will be able to walk into a new school as a counselor and be confident I can perform my job.
