Columbia International University Reviews
CIU has a positive environment. The community that can be found at CIU is unmatched. The professor want to get to know you as a student. The professors in the education program are amazing. They have a passion for teaching. The buildings and classrooms at CIU are horrible though.
This is a small Christian school who's teachers and administration are grounded firmly on the authority of Scripture. It is a great environment in which students can learn and be challenged in their faith.
CIU is a great school. It's strength is in professors who love Jesus and want to impact students for Christ. I would highly recommend this school for any major except youth ministry. That major is a joke.
The Masters Program in Clinical Counseling consistently maintained a personal student to professor ratio. The clinical program focuses intently on preparing students for future licensure as a licensed professional counselor, but the professors show a concerted interest in the personal lives and growth of each student. I continue to maintain strong relationships with a few faculty to this day.
Columbia International University is committed not only to preparing students for successful clinical practice; it also is committed to strong biblical emphasis and integration of the Christian worldview into psychological theory and practice. A great deal of who I am today has come as a result of the relationships formed and academic/professional experiences gleaned during my study at CIU.
