Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Being a student in the 2016 executive Master of Health Administration (MHA) cohort was one of the best experiences of my life. This program not only provided me with rigorous course instruction, but also many opportunities for networking, consulting engagements and life long learning. Colleagues from my cohort are now some of my best friends to lean on through workplace challenges, or just to have dinner and discuss personal stuff. My professors were world class and a few were Presidents or CEO's of major hospitals and companies. Highly recommend the executive program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

The Clinical Social Work Masters of Science Program at Columbia University in the City of New York is rigorous yet balanced. I started with a BA in Psychology and I feel like I've grown so much as a person in learning Clinical Social Work. Understanding how the social environment can effect one's life course is paramount in understanding its effects on mental and physical health. The professors and courses will challenge you without attempting to break you. At Columbia your cohort of peers are your team. At no point in time have I ever felt that my peers are my opponents. The philosophy is much closer to "No man get left behind." The entire staff is amiable and supportive here at Columbia. I would recommend my school and program to anyone interested.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

Columbia International University provides easy access to faculty and staff. Students are able to engage to professors during the week and get from them more than just classroom information. Most of the professors in grad school had experience in the mission field overseas. That contributes to bring an incomparable credibility to the teachings that are always focusing in the mission of GOD. CIU provides very good facilities for graduate students to live campus life. Even for those who commute on weekdays to campus. Financial aid office is really helpful, however, not as many inside scholarships are available for international students. There are opportunities for campus jobs though, which helps. In terms of tuition, CIU has probably the best cost/value ratio in the market. It is a safe campus in Columbia, SC for those who are or plan to engage in the mission of God more effectively.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

The Bible program at Columbia International University is run by a faculty who cares. They are extremely knowledgeable and available; every one! It is a family atmosphere here, one that makes academic growth easy and natural. The immediate location is a somewhat rough neighborhood, but a 10 minute drive takes you into downtown Columbia, a nice place indeed. I unreservedly recommend CIU.
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is the most expensive out of the other graduate programs I was accepted to. Although it's expensive, you can't beat the super cheap yet beautiful apartments on campus. Also, the professors truly care about their students and helping them excel not only in the classroom but in their future careers.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The faculty are fantastic and supportive. We have small class sizes and great diversity in age and ethnicity, background of students. The classes are challenging, and completely practical towards our future careers. The on-campus housing is great as well. The area of town the school is located in (far from everything else) is the only con I can think to mention!
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program is very informative. I really am impressed with the amount of information being taught. The workload can be difficult to manage, but I am glad that the professors care about teaching.
