A basic overview includes: Less expensive Becoming CACREP accredited Christian perspective Being from a minority Christian religion I have been treated well Because this is an online program it stands to reason that social life and accessibility to teachers is less than a traditional school. Liberty University is not currently CACREP accredited, which is required by my home state of Oregon, but they are in the process. Although there is a diverse range of students, this is a Christian university which limits diversity based on the fact that there is a Christian bias. For me personally, this is Liberty University's biggest strength because I am studying from a foundation of my own beliefs rather than from secular perspectives. I was somewhat concerned that as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I might be treated like an outsider. I was gratified to learn differently and have been very comfortable with the religious perspective of Liberty University. Some of the textbooks give false information about Mormons but that has simply given me more interesting things to wrote about. When I applied they claimed that they were one of the least expensive online universities. I assume this is still true. This was one of the primary reasons I chose Liberty University.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Liberty is the easiest place to get ahold of a human being on the phone. Every single person who I've spoken to has been knowledgeable of all the questions I ask, genuine, nice, and more than willing to set me up in the right direction. So far, there haven't been any downfalls to my program.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I take my program online, so a lot of my experience with my graduate program is through the internet. I find that sometimes it is hard to contact professors being all online. The course work is also huge, considering you have to read everything to learn, there is limited peer interaction and you feel almost like a number at times. That being said, I am learning a lot from my classes.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I am enrolled in the online program, but it didn't offer me a selection for "program." I also attended Liberty as an undergrad so I answered some of the questions based on that and what I know of the school today. I have been very impressed with the graduate program so far, in quality and in the communication with the school and professors.

It is a very rigorous program. Nonetheless, the faculty is dedicated and understanding of the students and life circumstances.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I have attended Liberty university both on line and on campus for the past three and a half years. It is highly valued as it [provides a well balanced education, a diverse student body, reaches and trains students from all over the world and impacts our world for a bright future. It is the largest Christian University and the training available is limitless. I am proud to be both an graduate from the Master of Divinity program and a student in the doctorate program presently. There is one unique feature to Liberty that all need to know about and that is the seamless transition in acquiring assistance in tuition and the desire to assist in the training that is given. They are there for the individual student whenever needed and are a premier school. They also have placement services that are ultimately helpful once graduated. They are communally respected and have more than adequate facilities and an infrastructure that is to be emulated. Overall an outstanding school.
