5 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors really care about you and your success. They will always take the time to hang out with you in their office and make sure you know the material, or help you find new opportunities. We have a free tutoring center and tons of people on staff who are more than willing to help you with anything you need, whether that's finishing up an essay, learning to study more effectively, or just encourage you.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: In the Christian studies majors, our professors are extremely invested in our lives because they want us to be trained at the highest possible level of excellence before we start our careers. Most of the professors in the program are or were pastors, so they have a lot of hands-on experience and practical wisdom along with their knowledge of the material they teach. These professors love to mentor us, pray with us, and spend extra time with us to teach us things above and beyond what the courses require, and they have lots of opportunities set in place to help us get out into the ministry work so we can gain valuable experience. I am extremely impressed with the Christian studies programs at AU.
