Degree: Religious Studies

Liberty does not display Christianity.You are convinced to enroll, but after classes start, is when you see the true nature of this University. The professors are not very helpful, and are quick to refer to tutoring which are not very helpful either.

I greatly enjoyed attending Liberty University and its seminary, which is now called a School of Divinity. I learned a lot, the teachers were honest and fair, the cost was reasonable, and the students were wonderful. My major complaint is that they did not take initiative to personally help me find a job. I had to fill out paperwork, go to career fairs, read through job listings, ad infinitum. Never, however, did they have someone look over my credentials, consider my career goals, and make the phone... Read More

A wonderful challenging experience that pushed me beyond my depths to become a flourishing captained counselor that can reach the masses. It is amazing that the instructors were there praying for you and also willing to help maximize your time and efforts in achieving your goals.

I am a military combat veteran, hold (among other degrees) a Masters in Clinical Medicine, and am a practicing ER Physician Assistant. I was initiating an MDiv (Masters of Divinity) degree, and was asked to submit a written statement as to my Christian calling. They then informed me that my beliefs were not Christian enough for LIberty University, and that I and that I would not be allowed to take any programs from them. If they are this descriminatory at the onset, I can only imagine what they do... Read More

Degree: Religious Studies

Just about there and I couldn't be happier. As a late bloomer, engaging in Graduate studies started out as a real challenge. In the 20+ years since graduating with my Bachelor's Degree (in Civil Engineering) so much has changed. Liberty's academic advisers, and professors alike, have been incredibly helpful over the past year. Liberty's library is second to none. Although I've only used the library online for academic research, if there is a needed resource not available through Liberty the staff... Read More

Simply put, Liberty Online offers a rigorous and beneficial graduate experience. As a senior pastor of a busy church, a husband, and father of five, the ability to obtain a degree in this format is invaluable. Of course, each instructor has their own personality, but all in all, the responsiveness and grading was very reasonable and helpful. Accreditation at a seminary is important in my estimation, so Liberty opens the door to spiritual growth and career progress. Most importantly, I am far more... Read More

Degree: Religious Studies

I attended Liberty online for 13 months while pursuing a Masters degree. I first attended University in the 1970' and 1980's when I received a BA English and an MBA from the University of Texas and the University of North Texas. What I found at Liberty was a significant difference in teaching methodology, which one would expect after nearly 40 years. With online courses, the impetus is on the student to independently complete the reading and the assigned papers and other homework - and, there is... Read More

Degree: Religious Studies

Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary at Liberty University offered me the flexibility needed to complete an M.A.R. while also working full time and serving in my local church. The Classes were rigorous, with vast amounts of reading and writing per course and I am thankful for the extremely high quality of the education offered. Support from advisers and course instructors was constant, with questions being answered in less than 12 hours in nearly every case.

Degree: Religious Studies

Some professors are really caring and kind hearted. However, the bad ones believe they are little gods and if you don't believe their dogma they will fail you. I have graduated with a masters and doctorate at other universities and this school really has to be the worst for support. Don't plan of being anything but a number. If you need help you will talk to a student advisor how is a student just like you who can't help you. If you file for a grade appeal you must wait until the instructor posts... Read More
