5 College Sophomore

Academics: Azusa Pacific University provides the best curriculum for their students. APU provides the very best, and they excel in excellence with their programs for study abroad, work study, and general academics. Studying at APU is such a great experience!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: APU has one of the best Business programs around! I love the all the opportunities one is offered, from the great business study abroad programs to the great business internships, studying business at APU prepares you to be successful in business.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Like I mentioned before, most professors are great and it is most likely do to the small student population. Some classes have heavier work loads than other and take so much time away from your major classes. It is important to pick professors who give a reasonable amount of work. Registration isn't the best.I hate being on a waiting list. Biblical studies, psychology, music, and business are popular. Science majors, nursing, and others are less popular but the programs are actually pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like being a science major at APU. Professors are willing to help you if you go to their office hours and ask specific questions about the material. The work load is heavy especially if you have a professor who uses mastering physics or mastering whatever it is or if they give you 20 problems for h.w. APU does have free math and physics tutoring which is also nice. Research opportunities are not hard to obtain and those really help with getting internships and jobs in the future because you have proof of actual lab experience.
