Student & Graduate Reviews

4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Having a program that can be done mostly online is something of importance to me. There are 4 separate weeks that classes must be taken on campus, but these are given at various times throughout the year to accommodate everyone's schedule. Professors quickly respond to any communication.

None on the part of the program, just time constraints for me. Excellent program, great support and encouragement from the professors.

Graduation Year: 2011

Studying the Word of God at the graduated level was the greatest experience of my life. I learned alongside men and women who were already leading congregations successfully. The resources and experience I gained during my education are priceless to me. However, I find work in the field of religion is scarce for women. Thankfully I studied relgion out of interest and not out of need for a higher paying wage. The job field is harsh these days, and for graduates of religion, it's an entrepeneurial future or no future at all.

Liberty University Online is a great program, especially if you are in the military. Faculty is helpful and accessible. Highly recommend!

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Liberty probably gives the best from what I've seen as far as online programs. The graduate studies are rigorous and you learn from them. There is no financial aid aside from loans you may receive from the government. It is a conservative school in it's theology, but you learn.

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.
