Regent University Graduate Reviews
Online freedom! Great choice of classes, and engaged and informed professors leads to a high level of interest, and a motivated student body keeps students on their toes. GPA's tend to be relatively high in all departments of the graduate school. Cost is also low, but does not reflect the quality of education at this non-denominational Christian school. Never met anyone who attended who didn't believe in Jesus Christ, but if someone did who was willing to learn discursively about Him and our faith in Him, that person would come out with a well rounded understanding of our faith, and an excellent education.
The counseling program has been frustrating at times. Contributing to the frustration, has been the professors. Some of have been scatterbrained, making the course somewhat unorganized and others have been the most encouraging, while still others have had a rude demeanor. It has been baffling at times of what to expect. On an assignment with a lot of criticism, I would have expected a lesser grade, but this although, showed no reflection. Sometimes, comments from professors come off as a mother scolding her children. It seems strange to be treated as a child when you have experience as a working adult, parent, and are continuing education to fulfill a dream to further your education. Although, I feel to have experienced growth academically, I had a hard time understanding some of the professors attitudes towards their students. Since, students work in groups in the counseling program, the comments betweens professors and students were continually shared throughout the semester.
Regent University wants you to succeed in school and in life! They offer support such as the writing center, student success center, excellent professors, and an easy to use online experience. If you are a Christian it is a wonderful school.
