Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

For a Doctorate of Pharmacy degree program this school is progressive but the program is only 6 yrs old so it still experiences growing pains.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

Costs are very high with little to no financial aid. Staff are very helpful and the university has a good network of connections and a reputable name.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Belmont's MBA program offers a lot of varied courses that apply to all sorts of areas. I enjoyed being able to make my program more of "my own" with the electives I selected. I think the campus and its location are also pros. Absolutely beautiful campus and they're constantly renovating and updating the buildings. Also, its location in the center of Nashville is great. There's a lot of living options and entertainment available nearby. I think the cons are similar to every school. Some of the adjuncts are could be better selected and some professors have chips on their shoulders about their topics of study.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

As a distance education Master's program this is an intense, accelerated program that takes hard work and dedication. The staff are very supportive and helpful but the platform for online learning has a lot of problems. I believe there are better programs than blackboard for the online portion of the program. The school has a fantastically beautiful campus in a fun location right in downtown Nashville.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Although it is a new school, the Belmont University College of Law is already making great strides toward establish itself in the Nashville legal community and I am proud to be a part of the beginning of this!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Belmont Law's biggest issue is that it is sacrificing necessary Bar Exam material in order to try to create its own niche. Specifically, many if not most law schools have two semesters of core subjects like contracts and torts, but Belmont crams those into one semester and instead forces students to take Intellectual Property (which is not tested on the Multistate Bar Exam) in order to fit with Belmont Undergrad's reputation as a music school. On the other hand, Belmont has an appropriate focus on preparing students to actually practice law. Belmont requires all students take a practicum course each semester. Additionally, Belmont Law has a beautiful new building equipped with a full trial courtroom and an appellate courtroom.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

A pro of Belmont University College of Pharmacy are the support and accessibility of faculty and staff. The campus is small and very beautiful. The surrounding city offers many opportunities for all interests. Last year 100% of students passed their boards and I feel the curriculum prepares student's to be successful in their future. In the second semester students begin going on rotations and get experience in the field. Some cons are the cost of living is fairly high, many students drive to campus, and I feel Belmont could offer more scholarships to their students.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I have been extremely happy with my experience at Belmont University. I feel that I am being well prepared for my career as a Family Nurse Practitioner. The instructors are approachable and well prepared. The curriculum is appropriately structured and the overall program has been designed well to promote success. I am very proud to be a graduate student at Belmont University. In saying this, I honestly have not encountered any cons other than the cost associated with attending a private institution.

I feel that an MBA from Belmont will give me a competitive advantage in the job market.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

Last year the graduating class had a 100% pass rate on the NAPLEX. This is a challenging program with very passionate teachers. The teachers prepare students for the national exams to come and are continuously working with students to better the program. Belmont University is located in a large city, but the atmosphere on campus feels like a small town and a close-knit community.
