John Paul the Great Catholic University Reviews
I graduated back in 2015, with a Bachelor of Science Communication Media degree with an emphasis in the New Evangelization. The New Evangelization program is one of the best programs offered at JP Catholic University.During my time here, I received an extensive amount of Theology, Philosophy, and Biblical studies, all while learning the practical skills of media, marketing, and business, If you are passionate about your Catholic faith and are passionate about creating beautiful art via modern technology than this is the school for YOU! Here, you will get the best of both worlds!
Loved almost all of my professors. They were fantastic as people and excellent as professors. Naturally you'll have a mediocre one every now and then. I majored in film production, and the classes/professors taught me film theory, practical production skills, and industry terms and methodology. You can only learn so much before actually working on a feature film set, and I feel like I got a great start at JPCU. This university is also authentically Catholic. Not every student is Catholic, but that's fine; we welcomed them. The theology and philosophy courses were both intellectual and practical.
When asked about the Catholic identity of the school, I have to say it is fantastic! Mass is offered frequently. Adoration is available frequently. The students are all supportive of the practice of the Faith and I always feel like there is someone available if I need to talk.
