What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
The professors know what they're talking about, and they will challenge you to think critically about everything. Many professors have their PhD's, but their focus is on students and not getting their own research published. The school has great acceptance rates into graduate schools. PLNU is known for its business, nursing, and science, but every program is rigorous and stellar.
Female from Mission Viejo, CA
The science majors definitely have the most rigorous academic schedules. Not trying to diss any other majors, but the science majors require a lot more time in labs and outside the classroom attentiveness.

You will be taking general ed classes. The classes you take and might like will have something to do with your major.
