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.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Liberty University offers a really good graduate program online. It is a very intense program with classes that last 8 weeks. The typical semester is three classes and they offer them in several different "terms" so that you are not taking all three at one time. The professors have all been phenomenal and very helpful. I have been able to get in contact with any department if I have needed help and any issues have been handled immediately. The only con that I have had has been here recently and that has been with the bookstore. Liberty works with MBS direct and the fall semester books are not all listed. This is my second year at Liberty and I have been very impressed with the school.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm an online student, therefore some categories do not apply to me. Liberty University is a great school to pursue my MBA degree. The only drawback about online classes is you're not as connected to the campus and your classmates. Discussion boards are provided, as well as social media to help students connect and overall it has been a great experience.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Liberty has tons of offerings for online only students. It is a great value especially for religion/theology graduate students. The use of technology to keep up with and participate in classes is great. I weighed several different schools and landed on Liberty because of the quality, reputation and availability of the online program.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Liberty University Online is an awesome school. Their teachers are fair and they challenge their students. The thing I like most about the college is their continued effort to merge Christianity into a professional atmosphere. I have been studying psychology for four years. I have received my Associate's and Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. I do not claim to be an expert and all knowledge about the field; however I do feel very comfortable with the material. Throughout my undergrad time, I kept my religious beliefs/Christian principles and schooling separately. When I transferred to Liberty University online, it was a culture shock. I had to learn how to merge the two and determine the line and when to apply Christianity principles in treatment and when not to apply them. I find this very beneficial for my future plans with my degree and in my life as whole. This school has made me a better minister, counselor, mentor, and overall person. I am proud to attend Liberty University on line. The con that I see is that if you are not a very religious person then this school may not be for you. Regardless if you are a Christian, catholic, Buddhist, or whatever your religious preference is, this school helps to merge your beliefs with your professional knowledge; however, if you do not have religious belief it may be a little difficult. On the other hand, it may help you deal with or give you another view point when dealing with your religious clients.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

Some of the pros associated with being in an online graduate program is the ability to work at one's own pace. The deadlines for assignment submissions allow for time to study the content and apply what was learned while tending to life's demands (i.e. family, career, leisure). Additionally, there’s an advantage in being somewhat anonymous as an online student because it alleviates any biases the professor could potentially have when it comes to grading. With this could also be a con, as the lack of an interpersonal working relationship that could be established between a student and a professor may be hindered. Overall, I have had a pleasant experience in my online education, as it provides the convenience of allowing me to manage life outside of higher education, but rigorous to the point of disciplining myself to work hard in order to succeed.
