Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2011

I received a great education. I felt very prepared entering the workforce after getting my Master's Degree at Canisius. In terms of reflecting back on fond memories, it was more of work experience because of the amount of work for each class. I didn't leave the school having any type of emotional tie like I did with my Undergraduate college.

Degree: Respiratory Therapy

Canisus College was very helpful from the beginning "request info" through completion of the program and graduation. The administration of my program stayed in close contact with me every semester. I appreciated the guidance and support as all my courses were completely online.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2020

Canisius College's blended Master's program offers the best of both worlds for a fairly new and challenging degree in Anthrpology/zoology. You get both the convenience of online courses with the personalized attention of an in-class course. By traveling to campus prior to each semester you get to know your classmates and professors fairly well before returning home and completing the online portion of the courses.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2011

I chose Canisius College Graduate School of Education for their outstanding reputation in producing superior teachers. As a Social Studies Education major, Canisius instilled in me a great wealth of knowledge and skills, from which I became a certified and highly qualified teacher. Their instruction on educational theory and teaching strategies, combined with their ability to place student teachers in great schools, have all provided me with the tools to be a superior teacher. As a teacher for six years now, Ive been able to educate and help countless students through some of the toughest courses available. I thank Canisius for properly preparing me for the classroom and recommend them to anyone pursuing a career in education.

The CSPA program at Canisius College is top-notch, particularly if you're seeking a student affairs program that emphasizes practical experiences over research. The faculty are extremely student-focused and the program coordinator is highly respected in the field. The program is set up as a cohort, which is so helpful for peer support, motivation, and accountability. The program also offers great opportunities for graduate assistantships that contribute toward books and tuition. Each year, the students go to the ACPA national convention (registration is paid through the program), which is something unique to student affairs master's programs. Overall, Canisius and Buffalo are great places to study, live, and work - I highly recommend it!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The Advanced Special Education program incorporated classes that are useful in the career of a teacher. I learned to understand standardized tests, such as achievement tests and intelligence tests. The program is comprised of classes that can be completed in one academic year, or the classes can be taken throughout multiple years. As a teacher in New York State, I am given 5 years to complete my Master's Degree. I was able to have this program fit comfortably in my life while I worked as a full-time teacher. The staff are incredibly supportive of their students and want to see them succeed. With small class sizes, you are able to develop relationships with other students. By networking with each other, you learn more than just the academia associated with the coursework.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The MSA program at Canisius College has been a great experience so far. Many of the classes teach the real-world experiences in the sport industry, which helps give a good idea of what to expect upon graduation and landing a career. The teachers are fantastic! Always there for help and any questions to be answered when needed. The only drawback is the area and affordability of tuition, but there are a ton of graduate assistant opportunities both at Canisius and other local schools that will help cover tuition costs plus adding professional experience to your resume. Overall, I am proud to be a part of this very well-known program throughout the country. I highly recommend the Canisius MSA program to anybody looking to land a successful career in the sport industry and become a valuable part to the Canisius College network.
