went back to school, after many years, while working full time to complete my Masters from Liberty online. They required my BA as well as specific pre-requisites from my undergraduate college before accepting me into their program. It was challenging as I was working, but I made sure my weekends and evenings were available for studying. Their professors were always available via phone or email. I strongly recommend their online program for working professionals, or anyone who is unable to attend on campus, or who cannot afford room and board. The campus is breathtaking and their facilities are top notch!

Faulkner “University” is nothing of the sort. It has the feel of a medium-sized high school. The academics are weak, with many core classes taught by adjunct faculty. There is very little research being done on campus, robbing students of participating in meaningful, current scholarship. An authoritarian student life code treats young adults like children. Unless you are from a Christian fundamentalist evangelical background, RUN AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AS FAST AS YOU CAN. If you are from this tradition, you can do FAR better at a school like Sanford, Birmingham-Southern, Lipscomb, Belmont or evening Harding. Remember: you can do better!
