Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I am just beginning my program, however, I have been very satisfied up until this point. I am completing their Multicultural Clinical Practice of Social Work program. I love that there is a multicultural component, as I have already seen how diverse my client base will be. I know that Augsburg is very well respected and that my job prospects will be better than some of the other programs in the area. The professors seem to be strict, but compassionate, and passionate about the work that they do. I think that this will greatly impact my education for the better. They have been available to answer any questions that I have had. We have already had a few orientations, and will have an additional one next month. I am currently working full time in the social service field and am nervous about going back to school and completing another internship. I am confident that my professors are aware that as an adult student, life will come up and they will do their best to accommodate.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The MSW program at Augsburg College has been a great hands-on and experiential program. Faculty focus on preparing you for working in the social work field through lecture, discussion, and application. By far the most important aspect of this program is the willingness of faculty to work with and connect you towards your career goals.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Going back to school at 50 is hard, and I've found that not all institutions of higher learning are equal, at all, in terms of the extra support needed by people like me. I tried two other local schools before transferring to Augsburg, and it is superior,by a wide margin, to the others in terms of welcoming and nurturing the older student. The academics are rigorous, which is both a pro and a con- I'll be a much better math teacher when I'm done, but it will have involved learning mathematics of a much higher level than I anticipate teaching.

Augsburg graduate programs and post-graduate programs are exceptional! The programs provide real life experiences in caring and nurturing environments, with professors that support students to be their best and true selves. The professors inspire us through their actions and daily lives, to be good humanitarians, empathetic care givers, and champions for global health and well being. The programs are designed that students identify and pursue their passions and to make their individual professional practices better. The lack of financial aid offered by the school can be a barrier. However the professors and instructors are incredible and extraordinary and make the endeavor ever so worthwhile!

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I thoroughly enjoy the education program at Augsburg-the teachers are knowledgeable, approachable, and genuinely care about making us into better teachers and helping students. There is an extensive field placement component to several courses where you can apply your learning to real-life teaching situations. Some drawbacks are that it is very expensive, compared to other programs. While it is worth the value, in my opinion, some very qualified potential teachers may not be able to afford the education.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently enrolled in a weekend/evening program for graduate students. I am working on becoming a teacher for elementary education. I think the best part about the school is the staff. The teachers that work with us in this program are more passionate about changing lives through the power of education then any of my professors I ever had in undergraduate. My classmates are easy to get along with, I have made a lot of new friends and individuals with the same set of goals in mind. It truly is powerful to be in a class of future teachers and know that one day most of us will be sitting in front of a classroom changing the lives or life and a future generation forever. The only con to the program would be the lack of online classes offered. I am currently living over seas and would love to continue my classwork but I am unable to due to the fact that most classes require at least some face to face time. I would also like to see more innovative technology being used in the classroom. We as graduates of 2015, 2016, 2017 and beyond will be in a classroom where just knowing how to log into the internet is not enough. There is so much new and helpful technology our schools could begin working with to enhance education. I for one would like to learn how to access more of these new discoveries and begin learning how to use them for my classroom.
