This program is an essential step for a student who wishes to expand his or her knowledge of the world and then use it to impact the world for good.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

I am an online student so many of the above questions do not apply to me. Liberty University Online has far more pros than cons. Some of the pros are the accessibility to an education that I could not afford to uproot for. My Master's degree is affordable and it is convenient to study whenever I can within my hectic schedule. The teachers, though we do not meet them in person, are very personable and take the time to communicate personally with you when needed. Even though it is an online community, you really feel like a part of the school and community at large. With discussion boards and excellent communication you really feel like part of the family. For me, independent study is the way I learn best, taking things at my own pace and yet still having deadlines and instruction. For some, a con may be the lack of classroom interaction and face-time with the faculty members, but for me that was a plus.

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2016

There are a few pros about my graduate program. First is the national ranking in the top 10 for the sports management program at Liberty University. Also, the advisers and support staff do an excellent job at guiding you through the online program. Plus, they also give you options to choose from in regards to finding an internship. There are not many cons about Sports Management grad program. One would definitely be the amount of hours required for the internship, which is 400 hours.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The school provided me with the necessities to work in the human service field. The workload was adequate and I was able to balance working a job and completing my education at the same time. The cons of the program is that there wasn't a balance between testing and writing papers. There was more writing assignments than having test or quizzes that assess your knowledge on the material.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The workload was very knowledgeable and easy to achieve. Some of the professor at time were hard to get along with because of me being a woman in ministry. However, I was able to look beyond where I was and look to where I was headed.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Very helpful professors, helps you apply Christian principles to your career, ability to attend on campus programs even if you attend classes online Cons: Financial aid reduced for no reason, being admitted on caution status despite having a 3.8 GPA coming into the program.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The instructors are very nice and make themselves available. There are extended hour chat options for just about every office on campus. I was a little worried about an online program but it is manageable and I'm learning things relevant to my career in Public Health. A con for me is having to do discussion board posts so often; I've never been one for in-class discussions and I don't like it online either. Another con is that I'm a distance learner so I can't just pop into someones office when I need to talk to them.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I believe that it's a total blessing to have this program be online, and for Liberty to be so far ahead in technology. This being said, having a degree completely online does affect the connection to the University, student body, and "on campus" events. I believe Liberty does well to connect online students to these things, it just takes a little more time.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. It has been able to steer me in the direction that is best fit for me. My graduate program has been able to help me be able to help people in very unique ways as well as give me an opportunity to understand people deeper. With deeper understanding, I am able to challenge myself to go the next step and to climb higher for the sake of the development of my students. When I successfully helped students to master their work, I feel that I have given them the power to take control of their own future. The main con for the graduate program is that it does require a lot of work so there are many sleepless nights and it is hard to develop a social life while under the strain of constant pressure to maintain my high GPA. Also, the expense is also quite difficult for I have had to do this without the help of family or anything. Despite the hardships, I do not have any regrets. I am thankful for my education and it always inspires me to climb higher for the sake of myself and others. It has been through my graduate program in which I was able to truly discover who I really am and what I am passionate about.
