There is little public transportation in the area, however the actual school is wonderful. Most of the professors are very passionate about the field and the material, so learning from them is fairly easy. Some have insanely high standards, but they do manage to make sure to keep them realistic. I love the weekend program, as it is designed for individuals who have to live a life (other than as a student) while they are in school. Overall, good school. A little disorganized at times, but really a great experience and friends I will keep for the rest of my life. The information I've learned I will also apply to my career and in my life as well.

The number of baby boomers turning 65 will double by 2020 and those boomers will be getting older every year. This country needs so many people to offer numerous services to older adults. The difficult thing is that very few colleges offer a Masters or even Bachelors program in Gerontology. Most just offer a certificate with other programs. Brenau college offers a great online program for this degree.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: The courses are seven weeks and allow you to concentrate on one course at a time; it is flexible; advisors and professors are accessible via email; responses are received in a reasonable time frame; it is a mentally stimulating program; the business office offers flexible payment options; professors are qualified individuals with practical experience in their field. Cons: at times it feels like the program is self-taught. Students are expected to learn concepts and apply them simultaneously

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

This is my first semester so I can't fully assess the school yet. But the interactions I have had with the faculty have been great! They are very helpful and willing to talk to you about whatever you need. This program offers a lot more than others, such as research and assessment.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a first year graduate student so I have not yet had the privilege of experiencing everything that Brenau has to offer;however, I have had the opportunity to interact with a lot of the faculty and these are by far the friendliest and most helpful people that I have ever interacted with. The campus is very beautiful and kept immaculate. The only thing that could make attending Brenau even more pleasant is the surrounding area. If Gainesville had more to offer like some of neighboring cities (like Atlanta) it would be beyond perfect!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

As with any online program, the quality of the classes depend on individual faculty and the members of the class. There seem to be faculty who go above and beyond to ensure that students are engaged (which is more difficult with online courses) and passive faculty who just goes through the mechanics and are not involved at all in the classes (except for grading). The cohort is diverse - There seem to be individuals from all walks of life and different education/professional background. There is also a number of students who have active military background.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

My pros of obtaining my Graduate degree, will enable to market myself better. I will have a better opportunity on landing a better job. Cons, would be a challenge by working full-time and being a single mother as well.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2014

I think Brenau University is an affordable way to earn a Masters degree. The quality of education is excellent, the class size is usually small so getting one on one with the professors is always possible. Their online platform for online classes or classes that utilize both onground and online teaching is easy to navigate and user friendly. I really enjoy the program I am in, it really brings together everything I learned from undergraduate and my work experience and expands it to a bigger picture.
