Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The program offered very few networking opportunities. I feel the program would grow substantially if more guest speakers were brought in to allow for students to network and learn about different career paths in public health. Also, collaboration with other programs on campus, such as the business program may also be beneficial when discussing topics such as healthcare finance. Also the program was brand new when I attended, and was still making a lot of adjustments. I feel that with the time the program will improve.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

Adelphi University boasts a large and beautiful campus, all of the facilities are well taken care of both by student body and the faculty. The competitiveness of the programs is fair and the quality of support and education is truly reflective of what to be expected in the workforce. That being said, the graduate programs are pricey. My graduate program in particular costs as much as an Ivy league college. There was a tuition hike and the student body was not informed of it until halfway through the semester, thus causing many disgruntled students. The transportation is not ideal, the Long Island Railroad runs near the campus and the University supplies a shuttle service from the railroad stop on to campus. Keep in mind that the Long Island Railroad is again, pricey but a fast and reliable service. Most people drive because parking is free on campus but often difficult to find depending on the time of day your courses are.

The only con about my graduate program is the overall cost of tuition. It is a private institution and it is extremely hard to afford.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

I find that since the building I am in for the graduate program of Communication Sciences and Disorders is not fully attached to the main campus there is not really a pull for social life. Also, since the workload is alot of work, there is not much time anyway. There is a good diversity of students though which makes kearning more interesting. I did not recieve any finnancal aid, but had to take out loans for this program, which is a big downer. Overall, howver I feel I will have a good experience at this school.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2019

I love this program and I would take it again. However, what I do not like is the school's overpriced campus and lack on care for their graduate students and residents. That is not anything this department can do. As for this department, I love it. The staff is great. They are always there to help out and provide guidance to help you further your education and ultimately your career. They help you stay on track and plan out the perfect schedule for the whole time you are there. They know what tests you have to take and help you plan when to take them. I would definitely recommended this program to other people.

As with every thing in life, college programs have many pros and cons. This program is no different. Today, I will share with you what I belive are the main three pros and two cons of this program. These aspects will focus on the specifics of the program. The pros of this particular Graduate Program are advisor support, circirulm difficulty, and technology use in courses. The advisor support, for me, in this program is one of best aspects. My advisor cares about me and my success in completing this course and becoming qualified to teach. My advisor, she, is always available to talk. If unable to make it to her office hours she will try and schedule you on another day she might be on campus or try a phone or communicate through email. The second aspect I like about this program is the circirulm. In the majority of my class I feel as though I am learning something new ever class. Also, the classes are challenging, but not so far advance that I feel as though I am drowning in a sea of work that I will never get done. Last, but not least the use of technology for class and how to incorporate it in your own classroom. Most of our classes use an online program called Moddle. This is a place to place coursework online for the students to always have access to, create classroom discussions, and upload assignments for private (teacher only view) and public (teacher and classmates view). Along with this, we also learn about various types of technology elementary and high school's are using to guide and teach students. Most of our classes require us to develop a lesson using technology as a main source. Now, for the cons of this program. These three cons are what I believe to be the weak points of the program; cost of program and financial aid availability. In recent years, the cost of obtaining higher education has sky rocketed and this school - this program, is no exception. The cost of attendance a semester is $20,500. This does not include if you need to learn a second language or obtain hours to go with the part of a second language you know so it counts. If you need any classes in second language you will be paying for part time undergraduate titution and that is an additional couple thousand dollars a semester. As you can see higher education, specifically at this accredited University does not come cheap. Which leads me into the other con, lack of graduate financial aid. It seems in the world, and in general, there is not much help for those wanting to obtain a Master's Degree. However, I would have thought University's would have some applications to help their students continue their education, but this is not so. They have any programs to help undergraduates, but graduates are left to fend for themselves. Overall, I believe this University has a great program and is one of the best out their in terms of quality, but could use some revamping on the cost and financial support offered to graduate students.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

The Masters in Health Education is a great program that I would encourage anyone to look into. Some pros include the various areas that are looked at involving the subject of Health. Some cons include the workload by some teachers.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

It' s a great graduate program however it is kind of expensive. Without the help of a business or the financial institute to back up the cost, it becomes financial suicide in taking on more debt

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The small class sizes, supportive peers and professors, and strong field internships are the highlights of Adelphi. As to cons, there is no "campus life" as we are a satellite campus, some of the professors are weak and I do not feel the students are heard on this point -- the same professors come back even with poor reviews, and the cost of tuition is very high for a career that notoriously pays low.
