Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2016

Eastern University is a Christian college unlike any other. On top of their excellent graduate programs, variety of opportunities for service and internships, and gorgeous campus near to a number of Philadelphia Main Line suburbs, Eastern is strongly compelled to act for justice in the Philadelphia area and globally. Eastern is conscious of diversity issues on campus and human rights issues across the world, Students are not just in the classroom to learn, but to ask better questions that equip them to serve their communities. Eastern's resources include a beautiful, three-story library, curriculum lab, multiple quiet spaces in various buildings for group and individual work, comfortable classrooms, a small kitchen for graduate students, and services from counseling to a new workout gym to academic support and tutoring are available. Online courses are easily accessible, and professors give students the flexibility to do work at various times. Professors on and off campus are accessible to their students in numerous ways, and professors genuinely care about the student's success. Eastern is unique in it's perspective on faith and the changing world around us, and those values are implemented in all classes and experiences. My time at Eastern University is invaluable, and I am very grateful for my experience.

Graduation Year: 2015

This graduate education is extremely affordable and manageable with a full-time work load. However, the program is not very competitive.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

Excellent school to advance my education in Internation Development. Would do it all over again.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

This program of study has allowed me to work full time in humanitarian aid delivery for people around the world, while simultaneously earning my Masters. Although the other students in my cohort are many miles away, we gather each year to learn directly from professors. Each module is immediately applicable to our real life, real time work.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The process so far for the MA Counseling program at Eastern has been uncomplicated and I have received plenty of support for returning to school. I love the area!

Professors are very personable and engaging, but the university is not very organized from an administrative standpoint.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

This program was fairly expensive but the staff were always available and eager to help. In talking to students in other programs the range of information we received was much greater and more useful to us.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I love that Eastern has such a big push for social justice. In the classroom my eyes are opened to the real issues going on around me, and how I can help eradicate some of the problems plaguing the community within my sphere of influence. It would be great if financial aid could be offered to students outside of federal aid. Right now, I am paying out of pocket which is really difficult. But, if I am to get into debt for anything it might as well be for my education.

Graduation Year: 2014

Eastern University offers students who want a small class size the opportunity to get a quality education with qualified staff members. And, while it offers small class sizes, it also offers students an opportunity to learn on a suburban or urban campus located in Philadelphia. The campus is BEAUTIFUL, and very peaceful! The program is staffed with excellent staff members with years of teaching experience in their various fields. My only suggestion is that they expand their course offerings in the Multicultural Education area, primarily because the school only offers a Masters degree in Multicultural Education for education majors.
