UMobile is definitely a school that has departmentsCommunications
UMobile is definitely a school that has departments that it seeks to excel and grow students in more than others. Unfortunately, I was not in a department it sought to truly train students. I majored in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations and Advertising. I wish I would have gone to a school that had professors in the Business Department that taught you about growing your portfolio, how to target a specific PR/Advertising job, key things you needed to know when pursuing a career in that field, etc. Instead it was all very general and basic. I had one professor who was an adjunct. He taught Marketing and was the only class I felt challenged in and I learned a lot from while in his class. I wish my time at UM had been more driven in that regards because I feel I could have known more in my field of study to be able to push me in the direction of where I'd like to be, instead of having to learn what others learned at college that prepared them for their career.In regards to social/college life, UM is very focused on the students who live on campus. If you are a commuter, as I was, it's very difficult to become involved in the activities on campus. They should offer activities for all students, not just the elite who are able to afford housing.

Question
I went at the end of the 90sSuper BrilliantReligion/Religious
I went at the end of the 90s when it was still liberal arts. I found that the diversity of education at the time was wonderful. However, around 2000 or so, they started replacing liberal professors with those that toe more of a conservative Christian line. The school is billed as a liberal arts school that "Changes lives to change the world", but really it is a seclusive religious school that exists to afford its students a non-threatening Christian-infused college experience.

Question
The University of Mobile has transformed from aReligion/Religious
The University of Mobile has transformed from a Liberal Arts college to a Christian University with a goal to teach all curricula through a "Christian World-view." The militaristic re-alignment with Southern Baptist ideals has resulted in a number of highly-educated, widely published professors to be terminated in favor of more Christian "Tow-the-line" types who can lead you to Christ before they can teach you facts. I think UM has lost its focus as an academic institution, and should change its name to reflect its OVERT Christianity. Liberal Arts? Not hardly.
