5 College Junior

Academics: My potential is challenged. The professors make learning fun.

5 College Junior

Academics: My program highly recommends its students to do something abroad. I recently had the opportunity to tour and volunteer in Israel.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload of major never overwhelmed me. The professors were so helpful, and very understanding. They were willing to help you in what ever way they could. I cannot say enough good about them. Registration was a little tricky and confusing, but my advisor helped me every step of the way and really helped relieve the stress from me. There was a study group for pretty much anything, and students really enjoy getting together and studying.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I think what makes my program so unique is the people in the program. It truly felt like a family away from family. I can say without hesitation that the Journalism and Mass Communication majors are the best!

5 College Junior

Academics: I get to volunteer in the office where I can learn about flying everyday that I am here.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

BJU students take pride in the University’s high academic standards. The school’s strict regulations may turn off some, but BJU’s academic excellence is often a selling point; it even has the nickname "Christian Harvard." The University excels in fields of study such as business, medicine, and performing arts, and has high employment rates for graduates. The University’s professional atmosphere helps drive students to take their education seriously and work hard in pursuit of their goals. For example, if a student’s GPA drops below a 2.0, the University puts the student on academic probation, which excludes the student from extracurricular activities and even University employment. Along with stellar standards, BJU also has high-quality professors that are friendly, professional, and encouraging, with the goal of glorifying and pleasing God while helping guide students spiritually and academically. BJU’s professors and advisers can be easily contacted by students for assistance concerning assignments, academic planning, and spiritual counsel.

BJU has its strength in academic excellence; however, it does have some shortcomings. BJU was accredited by the Transnational Accreditation of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS) in 2005, which is valid only towards Christian colleges. Therefore, transferring to non-Christian institutions from BJU is very difficult. When choosing BJU, current students advise incoming students to be firm with their decision.
