Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros of Liberty University Education Specialist program is the flexibility to work a full time job at the same time you are getting your degree. Students of this program also get to meet other students within the discussion boards and during intensive on campus classes. Teachers are always willing to help as well as the advisers. Its a large school, yet Liberty is very organized with their dual degree programs. The cons would be the same as with other schools. Sometimes you may get that teacher that does not have the online education nor the ability to teach in a distance learning fashion. From my experience with Liberty, this is very rare. I would recommend Liberty university to anyone wanting to further their education.

LU has taken the idea of distance learning to the next level and set a high bar for other institutions to follow. Many think that traditional school is best, but there are many reasons why people are nontraditional students and LU understands this concept and meets this educational need.

Degree: Counseling

Pros are the ability to have both online and on campus classes available. The technology is excellent and adjunct online professors are currently working in the field. Cons include the inability to have in depth real-time conversations for online courses.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

Excellent online programs for Undergrad and Grad students. Great format (8-week or traditional 16-week). The staff is always very polite and helpful if/when you have questions. I have recommended LU to several friends/family members who are also extremely happy with LU and the Online Learning Programs they offer.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

My MA in Human Services is online so any question regarding campus I am not able to answer. Pros: The online program is well established. So far the professors are very response to my inquiries and to the discussions online. Cons: None that would not come with any online program. For Liberty specifically so far so good.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Very impressive University, great curriculum. Being in the Navy and having an ever-changing work and deployment schedule the institution was very understanding and worked with me to allow me to pursue my goals. They challenged me to better myself as a student and improve my research and writing skills. This school sincerely cares about their students and it shows. Joel Murphy

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros of Liberty's online graduate program: It's affordable. They offer huge discounts to those who served or are serving in the military. Two, 8 week terms per semester allow me to complete double the classes. Instructors are knowledgeable and pleasant. They seem to really care about their students. Cons of Liberty's online graduate program: The condensed classes mean heavier work load. Some classes require an incredible amount of time which conflict with work and family time.
