The Master's University Reviews

I have had a phenomenal experience at The Master's University. The university staff is very invested in helping every student to achieve their goals. The academic programs are very well-designed and the professors are excellent at helping students to understand the material intellectually, as well as practically. The university campus is very well-laid out and the food is delicious. While the school's weakest aspects would be its athletics department and party scene, that can be a positive, depending on what is most important to you. All things considered, The Master's University is a fantastic school and you will not regret furthering your education here.

I absolutely love my school. There is no other school I can imagine being at. The school is a relatiely small school which makes getting classes easier and gives you more face-to-face time with professors. The students and faculty are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet and will go out of their way to help you out. The classes operate just as I would expect a university class to operate. The lectures and labs are serious but fun, because the professors actually care and want you to retain the information you learn.
The Master's (now) University is unlike any other school I know of. The dedication to the Scriptures and truth of God is unmatched. The faculty and staff, primarily the Professors are beloved by all the students as they continually practice soul-care and devotion to the spiritual benefit of the student.
As a daughter of an alum, I have seen this institution evolve and develop into a phenomenal competitive university, yet without negligence to the holiness of Scriptures.
Whether you are in the field of music, business, science, missions (and more) with a firm stand for the truth, The Master's University should be considered as you will not find any similar nearby.
