STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

JOHNSON UNIVERSITY'S AMAZING FACULTY.

Had the best degree program and community in my area and perhaps the US! from the amount of love and personal time spent with professors to the student life that is so exceptional, Johnson is amazing!


Course Curriculum - 

It is by far the best degree track for a major in urban studies and in the field of intercultural studies. I have gained a lot of experience from only being involved in the program for 7-8 months! There are many opportunities given to meet with and gain relationships with amazing professors!

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

JOHNSON UNI: GREAT EXPERIENCE

It has the major I wanted and I love the community I get to be involved in. I am able to major in a field that I want major in Bible and theology and obtain a minor in intercultural studies which are something I would not be able to do many other places.


Course Curriculum - 

The curriculum at Johnson University is tough. The teachers expect a lot from their students and push them to achieve great things. Even though the curriculum is difficult I am grateful that I am able to learn from each class I take.
