Student Testimonials

“The School of Theology focuses on spiritual formation, character development, and preparation for a lifelong ministry. Because the regional centers offer all the same courses as main campus, I’m able to complete my degree more conveniently. After I learn something in the classroom I’m able to apply it right away in my ministry.”
Samuel Lee, Divinity

“Proximity to an APU regional center means easy access to quality education that is not only nationally known, but internationally respected. Lower student-professor ratios mean greater insight into theoretical and practical applications. The interaction between students and instructors is conducive to learning, and far more encouraging for lifelong learning.”
Erl Cabanas, Teacher Education

“Every professor is supportive, knowledgeable, and eager to help me succeed. There are plenty of opportunities that help me grow into a strong, productive professional and prepare me for my future career.”
Bonnie Ebright, Special Education

“One of the greatest benefits of attending a regional center is the community provided not only by the location but by the multicultural background of students that brings a beautiful diversity to the learning experience. I have learned the breadth and depth of Christian thought, belief, and practice which has challenged me in my own personal walk and decision making in leadership.”
Amy Carlson, Divinity

“Some of the instructors give scriptures pertaining to the subjects we have talked about in class. Showing the relationship between scripture and my studies has helped me understand the information with a Christian perspective that I can take with me to a future career in teaching.”
Wendy Tisdale, Single-Subject Credential

“The quality and attitude of students and faculty creates a sense of belonging to an extended family around campus. In the masters program, instructors and students have more interaction and the whole class works together towards a common goal.”
James VanDargriff, Special Education

“The hands-on experience I get in my classes gives me a better understanding of what is involved in the counselor’s work day. Pursuing my masters at a Christian university has taught me to listen without judgment, build bridges where none existed, and strengthen the faith of myself and others.”
Virginia Castaneda, Education

“The best part of pursuing a master’s degree at a Christian university is the fellowship and having God incorporated into the course content. Also, because the regional center is closer to home it makes my day a little shorter. After completing my master’s in special education, I plan to pursue a masters in administration and have been asked to teach for APU someday.”
Deborah A. Reed, Special Education
