Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2021

The Counseling Program at Clarks Summit University is one like no other. The professors are all experts in their field with a plethora of knowledge and personal experiences that they are able to use to further the education of each student. The professors care about the students not only educationally, but personally. Even in the midst of their own busy lives they will always try to make time for the students. Finally, my favorite aspect of the program would have to be the practically that the counselors emphasize. If the students are taking, say, a science course and do not understand the practicality of it, the professors will take time to give an example (sometimes multiple) of the reason why the class is important. They know the students are humans and greatly desire to have passionate counselors that have a desire to help others. They even told us that anyone that does not truly desire to help others should switch majors. That is the heart that the professors have for the students as well as who the students will interact with after graduation.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2020

Clarks Summit University is known for its expert Education and Counseling programs. The professors that teach in the Masters Program are very personable and have their PHD in Counseling. They also greatly encourage further study. The topics discussed in class are relevant to current events so that the counselor knows how to interact appropriately to the many diverse and complicated issues of today. If anyone is looking for a school where the professors really care for the student's personal and professional growth in and outside of classroom, then I would 100% recommend Clarks Summit University.

Degree: Christian Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I had a wonderful learning experience at Baptist Bible College and Seminary which is now Summit University. Going back to Grad school after receiving my Bachelors more than 10 years prior was quite an adjustment. The staff, professors and students made course work educating, challenging and very rewarding. I would recommend This University to anyone who wants a solid education based on faith and Biblical principles.

Great educational environment with quality professors and current programs.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The Organizational Leadership online program is designed to use the student's job as the environment for learning. I appreciate this because it makes my studies applicable on a daily basis and I believe having material relevant to a real life situation helps to increase learning. BBC does not have financial aid options for graduate students. Their prices are affordable but it would be helpful to have scholarships to apply for. The faculty are very easy to communicate with and willing to help make the student's learning experience successful.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Pro Teachers are willing to work with you and are very accessible when needed. Homework is at a good level of understanding. Cons Schedule of things kind of get changed around sometimes and not explained fully when things are due.
