As a graduate of the MA and PsyDMay 19 2017Psychology
As a graduate of the MA and PsyD program, I was deeply disappointed with the learning culture at APU. Under it's current leadership, I watched the graduate psychology department shift their focus away from the "God First" Christian values and academic rigor promoted by the university toward an emphasis on the ideology of political correctness. If you ascribe to politics of the left, you will feel right at home. If planning to attend this program, expect to hear the drone of progressive rhetoric about the evils of white privilege, micro-aggressions, homophobia, inclusivity, xenophobia, and stereotyping. While multicultural diversity and liberal values are celebrated at APU, those with different views would do well to either abandon their more conservative values, remain silent, or be judged and labeled.

It is a great school in studying perspective but is not a christian school but give me money school
instructors cant stop talkingSep 12 2014Nursing
instructors cant stop talking about themselves instead of teaching.all they want to know about you and everyday you have to talk about your self. paying so much money just to talk about our self and about teachers personal life history. hardly they instruct us what to study......
The Master program in Education is terribleMay 09 2012Unknown
The Master program in Education is terrible. The on-line course are useless and the thesis project is inconsisted with the level of defficulty to response of the professors. Another words the professor are never around to speak to and to try an get a face to face is a joke. I have several e-mail correspondence to prov it. I even have tried to contact them on the phone.
I would challenge anyone to think twice beforeFeb 22 2012Religion/Religious
I would challenge anyone to think twice before attending any school, and if you are Christian its no different. I have worked to two programs at APU, and if I knew then what I know now, I would have not attended APU, but I to am too far in. As theology goes, I think they are too liberal or I'm to conservative. But either way, it really isn't a good fit. I this favoritism isn't a issue, but assurance of promoting Christian values is very lacks.
This University is very strangeMay 11 2008Education
This University is very strange. I thought a Christian private school would allow more dynamic discussion and opinions about the current state of education in our country. I was wrong. This college is obsessed with judging student character as it applies to Christ, in some antiquated and very controlling way. The students are either very naive or too scared to speak up, and so the atmosphere is a virtual vacuum for educational thought. If you have no thoughts of your own, you'll be fine. Otherwise, take the extra time and go elsewhere. I'm too far in now and feel trapped, even though they constantly remind me that I can leave anytime I wish. How nice!
The most frustrating partAug 25 2004Education
The most frustrating part of my graduate experience was the advising. Faculty advisors didn't seem to have a clue of what I needed to do to complete the program, and they often gave wrong information.
