    I came from public school and chose TMU over the UC system to enjoy a christian-based education. I learned so much about biblical studies, was able to study in Israel for a semester and made life-long friends. The on-campus experience is filled with activity throughout the year. The biblical education was taught by great bible teachers and the business courses were taught by extremely competent and successful leaders in the business world. Although not as well known as a UC school, I would not trade my experience and personal/professional education for the world!

    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!
    The Master's University is a Christ-centered institution that is very strongly and unwaveringly committed to the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture, preparing students for a life of Christian influence and kingdom work. As a small university, the professors are deeply involved in the lives of students, as evidenced by the success of students in their subsequent careers both while in college and once graduated. The cost is far more affordable than other private Christian colleges, yet the college provides the best in every area, whether it be dorms, teaching, facilities, library, resources for students and so on.
