Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

I love my school, the program like any other graduate program is very demanding. I believe that I have grown both personally and professionally as a direct result of my experience in the Leadership program. The only issue I have with the overall experience is the area. Azusa is not the safest neighborhood but the school itself is very transparent with the issues going on within the community and they provide campus safety. I don't feel unsafe on campus but because the school provides the students with email alerts whenever something happens near campus it creates a feeling of uneasiness. All my instructors have been very helpful and my classmates are awesome. I highly recommend APU for graduate school.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program was wonderful. Small classes, interesting material and no busy work. The classes were really designed to prepare students for teaching. The campus surrounding Azusa Pacific is a little seedy and you do not want to be out at night alone. Lots of crime. When crime does happen on campus, Azusa does send an email to all students.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The Leadership Masters program at Azusa Pacific University allowed me to gain knowledge and understanding in the field of student affairs and leadership and expanded my experience with student affairs by serving, learning, and leading on a college campus. This program lays the foundation needed to be a great leader and equip others with the skills necessary to lead.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Azusa Pacific University is the only school that I wanted to attend for grad school. I actually found out about the school my sophomore year in college at Florida State University. APU was the only graduate school I applied for because of their Youth Ministry program. They proved to show as the best one in the U.S. The pros of the program are that the faculty is extremely friendly, and the program is precise. I've emailed the school of theology for 5 months, and the dean has communicated with me speedily. All my questions have been answered and with love. The dean actually called me up to congratulate me for being accepted into the program. I felt so special and I am confident that they really take good care of their students. My degree offers courses not only teaching the basic fundamentals of youth ministry, but courses about understanding Greek and Hebrew. These languages are the earliest languages of the Bible. My degree also requires that the students go out and work for the community/church. It's just an overall great hands-on program that really pushes students to succeed out in the real world. Classes start September 3rd this fall. I really need any financial aid to assist me because APU is on the opposite coast of where I live. It is my dream school. I hope that I can attend the school. The con of the program would be the price. I'm just a small town girl, and though my desire has always been to attend this school and now it's my reality since I've gotten accepted; I'm looking for ways to afford the program. It's 477 dollars per unit. At FSU, my courses were less than that, and were 3 units each. No one on both sides of my family has ever received a bachelor’s degree or master's degree. Please graduateprograms.com help me. I already have nearly 30,000 dollars in loans from undergrad.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Azusa Pacific University has made it very easy for me to return to school as an adult to finish my special education credential. The satellite campus is right near my home and the hours of class are convenient. My professors are always available for me to confer with.

This school is well known for its Family Nurse Practitioner program. They gear for working nurses who are trying to finish their Masters. The quality of the program is exceptional and this school is willing to help you out through the program.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Faculty is supportive and makes themselves available to assist you. Format of research portion was difficult because assignments would coincide with finals for current course so it was like taking 2 classes at once. Campus was safe, and well-lit at night. Pricing was reasonable and quality of education is great. Love the spiritual component of the courses, and the support from classmates by being in a cohort.
