Azusa Pacific University excels in many areas. These areas include but are not limited to the following: teacher/student ratio, faith-based education, tremendous faculty support, location of campus to supermarkets, restaurants, public transportation, etc. The university offers a variety of graduate programs (both on-campus and on-line) for almost all majors A few of the drawbacks include the lack of financial aid that is offered for graduate students, and the high cost of on-campus housing.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I am in the internship program and so far I have not been placed in the classroom. The Mandatory meeting regarding student practicum was more Q&A than what is expected of being a student teacher. So for a little disappointed.

Pros: Small class size which includes more one on one interaction Since I am at a remote campus I can not comment on transportation.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending Azusa as a non-christian, has been eye opening into how religion and individual beliefs influence the therapeutic process. I am very pleased with my selection of Azusa, because of the individual participation, ability to get to know and feel comfortable with my peers, and the passion the professors utilize in their teaching. This is a great university for those who desire to be with other Christians, or for those like myself, who wish to learn and understand one of the more dominate religions of our society.

The campus is very small, but I do like the support given from the professors. They actually care about their students and want them to do well. I also like the networks established at this school, and they will prepare me for my career once I am finished with my graduate work.

Azusa Pacific was the best choice for me and my family. The Professors and Advisers were constantly assisting me in my educational journey to ensure a successful experience. The only con is the student loan i had to take out to attend.

I love my graduate program! I love how the staff is very helpful and receptive to questions and being approached. I also love how all of the staff is active in the community. The classroom discussions and lessons are very interesting and engaging. The downside is having 3 hour long classes, but I guess that is what grad school is about, more work. Also, there is not a lot of financial aid available from the school. The individual programs offer some aid but most of the aid that is offered is through student loans. All and all, I LOVE my school!

This program is small and personal but there is not always access to the professors as you would expect there to be.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

The advantage is that they provide a 4 year degree that allows you to become a professional starting at entry level for second degree students. The the disadvantage is that it is very accelerated and keeps you very busy and you can't work. Therefore, you must be financially prepared for 4 years.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program is that it offers both a secular and religion aspect of our major. The faculty are very supportive and offer extended help. Another pro is that in my cohort there is only 12 other students, which makes us really learn the material and have that 1 on 1 with the professor if needed
