3.71 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

UD's MPA program truly gave me a wholistic view of the world of public administration from bureaucratic work to nonprofit work. I had the ability to see multiple aspects of the career field. It was in this program that I gained the ability to articulate my calling and find direction vocationally. The staff is amazing and I have a great relationship with most of them to this day. I would say the biggest con is diversity. However, at a small, private, Catholic institution, diversity may be somewhat unrealistic.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

So far, this program has been outstanding. The faculty is invested in your growth as a person as well as professionally. They also have ties to some of the most known names in Higher Education. They emphasize assignments that are applicable to the work that you are doing as an intern or GA, as well as in your future career. I know that I have made a great choice in coming to UD.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Excellent school, truly teaching me the skills needed for the field of counseling.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The program faculty, many actively practicing in private and/or community counseling, engage students with stories of professional experiences. University of Dayton staff and faculty are very helpful in assisting the grad student transition from student to professional practitioner through mentorship, field relevant projects and advocacy. Securing an internship site often trips up students in other programs. UD M.S.ED/Community Counseling advisors begin the student in the process early in the program, reducing the likelihood of a delayed graduation poor internship site match. The diversity of students in the program provides depth in the classroom learning experiences, which transitions to preparedness in the field of community counseling.
3.18 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

I love the fact that all classes I needed for the program were available online. I have moved several times and was always able to keep up with the coursework even though I no longer live in Dayton, Ohio. Additionally, every class and all of the work associated with them is relevant to my teaching career. I am able to implement what I have learned into my day to day activities within my work life. Being that all classes are online, sometimes it is difficult to decipher what the professor wants for any given assignments. The classes do not offer examples for complex projects which I feel would be helpful. However, professors are always reachable online or by phone to answer questions as necessary and I have never found an online professor to be unavailable.

Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

It is close to home and where I work but it is extremely expensive which is why I am looking for scholarships so it doesn't burden my young family

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The Higher Education Administration program is very strong. There are three main faculty members for the core classes and they are excellent! It is great to get to know them and for them to get to know you personally as you work through the program.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013

I felt like I wasn't just a student number in a huge classroom. My teachers knew who I was and made time to help me out with whatever I needed. The English program was very small and not many people outside of the major were taking the classes so meeting people who weren't English majors wasn't easy. Overall though I'm very happy with my experience in my graduate program.
