Assumption School Counseling program teaches to the national standard rather than just the Massachusetts standard. This practice makes you prepared to take on a job across the country, rather than just in state.

Assumption College's graduate program in Counseling Psychology is fantastic. The professors and support staff work together to provide the highest-quality education based on the most the most current and effective counseling approaches. One of the most unique and beneficial parts of the program is the professor accessibility. Any student can request the help of a professor whether it be for questions regarding class or for issues related to that professor's area of expertise. This way, students received a customized education to best prepare them for work, a PhD program, or whatever they choose to do next. One drawback to the program is not having any online course options. I understand that the program prides itself on having face-to-face interactions with students in order to provide the best education. Though I respect that value and certainly understand the necessity of this interaction in particular classes, I believe that some classes can be offered online with the student receiving the same high-quality education. Overall, however, the benefits of this program far outweigh any drawbacks!

This program is very rigorous but also very relevant to the real-world Mental Health Field. The professors are knowledgeable and have a wealth of experience outside the classroom.

The pros of the graduate school program at Assumption College is that it works very well with working full time. The school definitely caters to the full-time working individual. Also, the classes are challenging and I have learned a lot. I also got a lot of classes waived since I did well undergrad and this helps as well. Also, the GMAT's aren't required and this helped as well since I took them but didn't do as well as I wanted. The cons with the graduate school at Assumption College is that it is expensive. Since it is a private school, the classes are a little bit more expensive and that is hard to pay for when you are on your own. Overall, I have been highly satisfied with the graduate program at Assumption College.

The program at Assumption College is really preparing me for my future in the rehabilitation counseling field. The faculty really values our opinions as a class and understands that we want to learn as much as possible within two years. There are very few cons to this graduate program, other than some of the material is dry. But that is common in any type of schooling.

Graduation Year: 2015

Assumption's graduate program offers the options for completing either on campus or online, either part time or full time. Classes are offered usually in the afternoon hours which gives the people who work during the day, an opportunity to go to work then classes. This can be a pro or a con for some based on one's employment situation. The instructors are helpful, highly qualified and accessible and class size makes the classroom environment more comfortable. Overall, assumption college is , so far, providing an enriched graduate school experience.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros of my institution: it is quite diverse, beautiful surroundings and facilities to enhance student lives. They provided added support for career enhancement and development. There is a shuttle that goes to all the colleges in the area and it is FOR FREE. It is easy to talk to staff and peers. There is a wonderful administrative system and strong Catholic presence. Excellent volunteer organizations and opportunities. Cons of the institution: it is not as diverse as many schools. There are not enough opportunities for international students and employment on campus is extremely limited and there are not many opportunities. In addition, there are no scholarly awards for graduate students that recognizes all the hard work and dedication they put in to achieve excellence.
