Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the biggest pros is the quality (experience and diversity) of faculty, especially this year. One of the most prominent cons, in my opinion, is the amount of time you spend in the school setting. The experience is good, but it is the majority of both my work load and my case load and I do not intend in working with this population in the future.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2016

Bloomsburg is one of the only grad programs that I applied to that offers graduate assistantship positions to Master's students (as opposed to reserving aid for doctoral students only like some schools do). Your first semester is mainly academics; however in the second semester you're both in the medical clinic on campus and a local school district. Your caseload ranges from 10 to 14 clients at one time, so you are getting plenty of clinical hours and hands on experience. time management is essential for success in this program. It is not unusual to be on campus at least 10 hours a day and then going home to plan for your caseload the next day as well as catch up on assigned readings. Your peers become your best friends because you see them every day; you honestly do not have extra time for people outside of your peers. You are your own biggest support group, so the competition of getting into grad school should stop once you're here. Overall, you are getting a great experience for the tuition price. You have a large caseload, but it should prepare you for your first job (since you will have multiple clients and obligations outside of your career). You have multiple supervisors, so you get to see multiple ways of doing things.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program at Bloomsburg University is an intense, hands-on experience that neatly balances theory and background knowledge with clinical practice. The program thoroughly explores many aspects of speech pathology and leaves the students feeling prepared and eager to enter into the field as professionals.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the program is the university is up to date with teaching students the new techniques and programs schools use today. They also have a reading room with access to children's books, different types of tests, and activities. A con to the program would be some of the material is being retaught from undergrad classes. Same slide shows and presentations, just a different course number. I think the university can change it up and create something more interesting and beneficial.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The school counseling graduate program is a wonderful program that caters to those who have a passion for helping students. The professors have been very supportive and encouraging during my first semester. The course requirements have been manageable, considering the amount of available time to focus on school work is limited. I began the program with a degree in clinical/counseling psychology and over 4 years of experience working in the human services field. I was eager to get back to school to focus on shaping my future. I have dedicated a few years to gaining work experience, which has truly helped with the school adjustment. However, there are minor aspects of the school counseling program that are not preferred. Having night classes makes it difficult to find a part-time job or get much work done after. It has also been difficult to balance finances, due to the tuition expectation and other obligations. With that being said, the program is enjoyable and enriching. I look forward to continuing the school counseling program and Bloomsburg University of PA.
