Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

As a graduate student in American International College's extended campus program in Buzzard's Bay, MA, I am very satisfied with my graduate education thus far. I take all of my classes with a cohort of education students and I am able to learn a lot from both my peers (many of whom are educators) and my professors. The rigor of the program is competitive, but definitely doable. The workload is often heavy, but I have learned a great deal from each assignment that I have completed. The main drawback of this specific program is that it is difficult to communicate with administration when needed because we are not located on the main campus.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

While I enjoy the program and the professors, the buildings are old and out of date. They need to put some money in to revamping their campus and making it more of a high tech center for learning.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program seems truly invested in their students, which I feel is a rare quality in the world of academia. Our program has some of the most enthusiastic faculty I have ever met on my educational journey and they are always a call or email away. Another pro to going to AIC for occupational therapy is being able to use the new health facility. We have some of the newest technologies to help us learn from equipment to practice dummies, which is helpful for a hands-on learner like myself. So far, as I am only a second semester graduate student, the only con to this program is its location. Springfield is not the safest place and it has also required that I move away from my family. However, I really want to become an OT so if those are my only cons, I feel I am doing pretty well.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

One major con is that AIC is in an extremely dangerous area. I was warned by professors from day one to not go outside at night by myself. This made me and my roommates extremely fearful. Pro is that the professors have the same attitude that we are there to learn and give us all the tools to succeed in the classroom and obtain knowledge.

The program is awesome. It is very comprehensive and lots of work but it is good. The location of the school not that great of an area but great quality education.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I am fairly new to this program so I don't have a ton of experience yet, but nonetheless I love it! The professors at AIC really stress the importance of giving each individual student a fair chance at demonstrating their skills. They seem to realize that not every student learns in the same way and so they try to create a curriculum where each type of learning style is used. I genuinely feel that my professors want us to do well and that was not always how I felt while going for my Bachelor's degree. The only truly bad thing about AIC is its location. Springfield is not the safest area or nicest, but that's something I am willing to give up for the great education I will have once I am done there.
