Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013

The faculty and staff for the Azusa Pacific Nursing program really care about each student's success not only in the program, but in their future careers as well. I attend the San Diego campus and although it is not an actual campus, it feels more one-and-one and I benefit from getting the most out of my professors and utilize the resources we have.

Graduation Year: 2016

The pros to my graduate program is that it is a one of a kind program designed in the nation. I also love that it challenges me to think critically on all levels. My only con is that with it's uniqueness, there are not really any scholarships out there for it.

APU has so much to offer being a highly accredited and recognized program. I look forward to finishing school and utilizing the networking abilities the school has to offer. I do believe the school is a bit expensive for such a short program and little financial aid.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

Great accreditations help you work anywhere you like once graduated, small class sizes and individualized faculty attention provide you with easy access to faculty and resources. Not a cheap program; you're paying for the selective accreditations you'll get from completing their program as well as provide and encourage lots of access to financial aid and scholarships.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that I am going to be preapared to be a professional in Special Education when I complete my masters program because we discuss case studies on multiple areas in the special education field. I do research both in field experience, online, and in books that are pertinient to working with special education, and not just meaningless text work. The professors do not accept anything less that true knowledge that exhibits our understanding of what is expected for each final grade, and adding to our professional portfolio. I do feel, however, that the workload does make it hard to have any time to myself and my children since I am a working single mother-but I really love this school.
