"This is a quaint and charming private school with a lovely campus. MU's location in Fayetteville, NC and where I have been stationed for some time now is what attracted me. The advisors on Ft. Bragg sold me on the MU at Night program majoring in Occupational Health and Environmental Management degree program. $395 per credit hour. I have a strong science background and what I found at MU shocked me in that the entire Department to include the Department Chair were fairly ignorant of basic scientific knowledge. In an example, during my first semester I took Environmental Science 1010. During the course, the basic learning objectives laid out in the syllabus were only touched on during the limited lectures. Most of the lectures centered around cancer research, disaster planning and mitigation, and just hours of side bars from both students and the Professor. The Professor also happened to be the department chair. My first moment of doubt came when the Department Chair insisted that carbon dioxide was depleting the ozone. I kept my peace and received an A- though I only did minimal work. The second issue was Waste Management taught by a guest instructor who worked in waste management on Fort Bragg. No text book was used. Instead the instructor provided a power point slide deck at every lecture. We took three tests which involved cutting and pasting the informational bullet points from the slide deck into the answer space of the exam. Easiest A plus ever. I just completed Spring 1 semester and took Principles of Industrial Hygiene as one of my courses. The instructor provided "case studies" to teach her lessons. She wrote these "case studies" herself and they were fictional garbage. One of the "case studies" had us mulling solutions to a Miami based food processing facility where new employees were suffering from the skin condition "malaria". I was floored. This ignorant person thinks malaria is a skin condition... She had to give the first exam twice even though it was take at home un-proctored and open book because other students did so poorly. In the student's defense, the questions were non-sensical even if it never got off the deck of Bloom's Taxonomy. Complete waste of time and money. The second course I just finished was Pollution Science and Sampling. Four credit hours because of the attached labs. I had to fill out approximately four fifth grade science class level work sheets and complete one virtual lab from Glencoe which was so laughably simple. This was a 3000 level course using a fifth grade virtual lab. I did nothing and learned nothing. My grade? A minus. Laughable. Its just free degrees. Want to buy a college degree? Methodist University Department of Occupational Health and Environmental Management has you covered. Lowest rigor possible without getting flagged by the accreditors. I left this program because I wanted an exciting additional pathway to my career and MU wasted my money and my time. Do not recommend. Go to Campbell or Elon if you want a private school."

"Methodist University is a great campus, the faculty and professors are very polite and are truly there for your betterment. Class sizes range based on the level of the course you are taking but are not extremely large. The classes are big enough for the teacher to learn everyone's name and have a one on one connection if you so wish. The campus atmosphere is very welcoming, walking around campus you are sure to meet very friendly faces. Even walking up to a complete stranger could make you a friend immediately."

"Methodist University Physician Assistant Program is nothing short of amazing. From the moment I interviewed with the program, to almost two years later currently attending the program in my clinical year, and I could not have imagined myself being anywhere else. The MUPAP is truly a family. We are encouraged as a cohort to continuously work together and push each other so that we might all succeed. It feels great to know that my faculty and staff want all of us to succeed. This is especially important in such a rigorous program. I remember being nearly in tears my first semester because I was struggling to get the hang of the course load and the amount of information I was expected to know. We had exams nearly every week in like 10 different classes constantly. Had it not been for my classmates nor my faculty/staff I know I would not have survived. So here I am in the clinical year of PA school, and with each new site I am constantly reminded of the prestige and the quality of the education I am receiving. Patients and Practitioners alike praise the PA program and the students that graduate from the program. I know that this is where I belong and I couldn't be more proud."

"Methodist University is a small private university where each student is valued. Class sizes are small which allows for better discussion and opportunities for professional networking. There are many opportunities to get involved in extracurricular organizations and the school also offers an emphasis on research and creativity. Overall, I am very grateful for my education I received at Methodist University and I would recommend it to any one looking for a high quality education."

"Methodist University is a school that is heavily religious. When you take there course you have to take two religious course. Since I'm atheist this didn't bother me but I did have some spat with the professors at time. The teacher are strict and they don't play. I had one teacher who didn't care if I was in the military or if I was going out in the field. If she said that you had to turn in homework on time you better turn in your homework."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent at Methodist University (Methodist College in my days!)! The professors were OUTSTANDING, and are still close friends in my life today. The friends that I made while I was there are still some of my closest friends!"

"This program is new and not accredited, but should have no problem receiving it. If it doesn't, they have programs in place where students can go into a different program and still receive their degree which is a huge plus. It is extremely organized, and the faculty is mostly younger and really knows their stuff which is so nice to have mostly faculty with PhDs and more recent PT and tDPT degrees. Everyone is so friendly, and our class is really close."

"Methodist University's graduate program is amazing. The professors are extremely intelligent, and are great at explaining the information. They also provide state of the art medical equipment so the students are up to date on the latest evidence based practices."

"Professors were great. I was an evening student and I found it most rewarding attending evening classes as a traditional student."

  • Degree: Physician Assistant
"What I like best about my program is the amount of support and dedication from the faculty and stuff for our success as future Physician Assistants. They are always willing to take the time to help us, answer our questions, and even come in on the weekend for additional review sessions. Additionally, we are taught by physicians and P.A.s, which is a huge benefit in our education. Our program is fortunate enough to have clinical experiences on an Army base hospital, rural areas, and urban areas as well. I love this program and I encourage anyone and everyone interested in becoming a Physician Assistant that they should apply to Methodist University."
