Degree: Theology
Graduation Year: 2015

This review will focus on the degree program. The theological views the program propones are particularly provincial. For example, in 2015 they were still saying that anyone who isn't a dispensationalist isn't interpreting Scripture literally. Dispensationalists haven't pushed this view since the 80s, yet BJ Seminary is still gung-ho here. The faculty was generally unfamiliar with current theological trends, even those among conservative evangelical circles. I asked a main theology prof about federal headship, an issue for conservative presbyterians for the past 15 years. He didn't even know what it was. Additionally, in the seminary retreats they broadbrush what few current evangelical issues they know as if all evangelicalism is declining into heresy. If a student wants an education that gives him/her a broad overview of theological trends in the evangelical or broader community, I'd advise looking elsewhere.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

BJU provides a quality, liberal-arts education at a fraction of the cost of many private institutions. While the guidelines students must abide by are not over-the-top, do take a look at them before signing up to go. I appreciated the dedication and personal investment of my professors, as well as the friendships I made in the education program.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are of my graduate programs are small classroom sizes, excellent one-on-one with piano faculty, and the large music research library. The cons-there are a lot of unscheduled rehearsals and meetings that are involved with music degrees. Although the required practice times is not that many hours, much more time is expected.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Usually the courses last eight weeks. Each Sunday a new week of work opens up, and it is all due by Saturday at midnight. The work includes watching lectures, responding to discussion questions, and reading. The classes tend to be project oriented, and there are very few tests or quizzes.
