“There’s an atmosphere of excellence at Regent.”

Sharon Byrdsong, Ed.D., 2008 K-12 School Leadership

“"I consider my years in my Ph.D. program at Regent the best investment I ever made in my career. The time, energy and money spent in the program have paid off many times over. I consider the faculty to be world class, and my peers in my cohort are true friends and colleagues."”

Paul Alexander, Ph.D., 2005 Organizational Leadership

“I received my M.A. in Communication from Regent University. Juggling full-time work, freelancing, family time, as well as 2-3 courses at a time was challenging, but it was worth all the hard work.”

Adam Ericson, M.A. in Communication, 2020 Filmmaker, Seacoast Church

“I took a trip to the campus and was blown away by the beauty of the school. What actually won me over to finally pursue an advanced degree was the professional resources offered by the School of Communication & the Arts, as well as the curriculum.”

Jonathan Santiago, M.A., 2012 Digital Media

“As a Christian business leader, I regularly use my military experience and Regent education to lead others into a comprehensive vision. I've learned a lot about innovation and organizational culture that fuel my daily work and desire to coach and mentor others to fulfill their God-given purpose.”

Thom Owens, Ph. D., 2013 Owner, Commercial Realty Business
