The faculty at APU make the music program stand out. The student-to-teacher ratio is about seven to one, which translates into an unbelievably personal education. I even have friends at USC who talk about the great professors at APU. If you want a challenging program in a Christian environment with extensive opportunities for dual degrees, APU is the place for you.”
