What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
Samford is pretty academically rigorous! It is a liberal arts school so all the liberal arts classes are harder than the ones at state schools. The religion classes are also hard because it is a religious school and they have a divinity school. They also have a pharmacy school so the science classes are really hard. They also like to combine classes into one. For instance, a chemistry class I took in one semester would be two different classes in two different semesters at a state school. I've heard they do this in other departments as well.

The work can be difficult, but know that your professors are here to help you every step of the way.

I hear that academics are taken seriously but I cannot give my own opinion. My department of interest, the Orlean Bullard Beeson School of Education has been nationally recognized of academic excellency.
