What Students Are Saying

3.43 Average Rating
alot of classes are kind of a jock, mainly core classes, but alot can be very difficult and take alot of effort to pass. its all about the students in my opinion.
LaQueisha from Pittsburgh, PA
I believe the academics there are amazing in some aspects but they aren't so good in others. Some of the teachers definitely need to re-amp their teaching. There are some that fool around in class and don't really teach and others that go into teaching overdrive the week before finals and cram 4 chapters into a 2 hour class.
Ashley from Duquesne, PA
The teachers are all passionate being that they have all worked in the field in which they teach. It makes the learning experience much better because they give very good constructive criticism. Not to mention they really know what they are talking about. A good way to put it is that they teach from experience, not from a book.
Angelo from Pittsburgh, PA
The classes at Point Park are not extremely difficult if you put a good effort into them. Many of the teachers are very relaxed and will be willing to work with you if you are having problems in their class. Overall I believe that Point Park is very good overall academically.
