Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2007

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.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently enrolled in the Marriage and Family Therapy graduate program at Azusa Pacific University. I researched several school for months before I decided on this school and program. This school is faith-based, and the faculty advisors, both student and professional, were great! They were able to answer all my questions, direct me to great resources, and were affordable compared to other private schools.

Azusa Pacific University's slogan is: "God First." When Jesus (my/our God and Savior) is sought first, everything else falls into place. Azusa Pacific University prepares students to get a great career. I was able to apply the education that I received at Azusa Pacific University. I would highly recommend Azusa Pacific University, a wonderful Christian college, to anyone and everyone!

This program is excellent and has given their students the best education possible along with the best projection to success. It is absolutely incredible how the program is geared to making you succeed after the program not only through it.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I believe that APU is an excellent school. It has great standards for students. The professors are very helpful and always available for any questions or concerns. The only con for me specifically, is that I am a single mother, therefore, all tuition cost and books are a real burden.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

I felt the Master's of Science in Information Technology was a degree that was very valuable for my career. It provided a foundation for in which I quickly advanced. I enjoyed the students in the program; they were all very bright and professionally as well as ethnically diverse. I also felt the cost of the degree was reasonably priced. The cons to this degree was that some of the courses were not valuable and the professors did not always seem engaged. At times the workload was unreasonable and the material was very difficult. The area in which the school is located was unsafe in general. I would not recommend walking in Azusa. The size of the Computer Science department was very small and the opportunities for Computer Science and Information Technology majors were extremely limited. Despite these cons I overall feel this was an adequate program for my needs.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of this school is they offer courses at three locations and the program is designed for students whom already have jobs/careers so we are able to still work and attend classes in the evening. The instructors are great and for my personal preference it is a relion based school. The cons, the program is on a quarter system. I came from a school where courses were 18 weeks long so at first 9 week sessions were fast with a lot of homework but I was able to adapt. Another con is the expense of grad program.
