    I'm taking online classes with The Master's University, and quite enjoying them! The teachers are excellent at interacting and responding to questions, and the lectures are presented in a clear and orderly way. There's still plenty of interaction between students in the discussion boards, and the flexibility of the online schedule is allowing me to work, travel, volunteer, and still finish college!

    I had the best experience at The Master's University. It was amazing being at a school that values biblical truth, and encourages others to pursue Christ together. The professors are great, and they really care about their students. Student life offers fun events, intramural sports, clubs, and an environment centered around the Lord. Really. This is not a school that just claims to be christian. It really is. It takes God's Word seriously, and it helps teach it's students through a biblical worldview. this is true whether you're studying Bible, Business, Biology, Teacher Education, etc. I have been blessed to be able to attend this amazing university. It prepared me to get a great job in my field after graduating. It taught me how to share the gospel with others in my field in a loving way. The Master's University is as much a ministry as it is an institution of higher education.
    I absolutely love The Master's University! I transferred to this school from my state college in Florida, and it is two completely different worlds! I have never known professors like the ones I have now. They care about me as a person and only want to see me grow. My professors also work with me when I am struggling and give encouragement whenever they can. The Master's University has been such a blessing to me and I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone!
