We affirm and teach that:
- The Holy Bible provides the authoritative base of our curricula, and that each academic discipline must be evaluated from a biblical perspective. That which is in harmony with the Word of God is truth and that which contradicts it is in error. We exercise thoughtful Christian liberty where the Scripture permits it.
- There is no dichotomy between the sacred and secular; we treat the pursuit of education as an act of worship that honors and glorifies God.
- The goal of education is to prepare the whole person. We seek to instill in our students the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for their chosen profession, while cultivating their spiritual growth, strengthening their moral character, and developing their abilities as citizens and leaders.
About Educational Quality at The Master’s University and Seminary
It is the commitment of The Master’s University and Seminary (TMUS) to offer challenging academic degree programs that seek to ensure student mastery of the skills and knowledge which are critical to success in one’s chosen profession, as well as preparation for further education at the graduate level. At the same time the university and Seminary make it a priority to provide support systems to maximize the potential for students to complete their degree work in a timely manner.
The following links provide access to data and a number reports which address both the areas of educational quality and student success.

Common Data Sets
The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson’s, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student’s transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers. Data is presented in the same “common” format used by most higher education institutions to facilitate comparisons among institutions.
RNL Student Satisfaction Inventory
The RNL SSI report is a 100 plus item nationally normed survey which measures student satisfaction and priorities, showing how satisfied our students are as well as what issues are important to them. This survey allows us to measure student satisfaction over time. It also allows us to measure student satisfaction compared to our peers. Data from our last survey can be accessed below:
