Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2020

This university is great. They do offer as many resources as possible to help the student through the learning process. The online course is manageable and easy to use. I was skeptical about doing online courses as I felt it was not as effective as traditional classrooms. Once I started the courses I realize it was the best decision I could've made.

If you are career focused but want to continue your education...Capella is the place to attend. The staff is super helpful and you can go at your own pace. I started a couple of years ago after being out of school for over 10 years, so I was nervous that I would not do well. Because of the personal track structure, I was able to accomplish something I had never done before...make the Dean's List. I would advise anyone to give Capella a try.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Capella University offered me the opportunity to learn about administration and leadership, which I have applied to my current position. My degree has also provided me with a raise in pay and a higher level of recognition from my peers and my employer.

Degree: CAD/Computer Aided Drafting
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently studying Instructional Design and Technology at Capella University. I am currently 4 classes from completing the program. This program is perfect for those that are currently working in the Instructional Design Field. I am currently working as an elementary music teacher looking to transition into the Instructional Design field. I have learned a lot thus far in my program and see a lot of correlations to K-12 education. I don't think this major is too outside the box for educators in K-12. One recommendation I would make in this program is to focus more on the skills employers are looking for. I have begun to search for jobs in instructional design and employers are looking for e-learning course development experience using authoring software. I am in a course where we need to develop a training course using authoring software but they do not teach you how to use the authoring software. You are expected to learn on your own. I think the university should consider two tracks for this program: if you are currently working as an instructional designer, or if you have never worked in instructional design and want to become one. In the latter case, the program can be redeveloped with offering courses that teach you to use an authoring program. I think this is the only drawback I see in the program. Otherwise, I would recommend this program to others.

It was a great school and I just wish it was more live classes where you can talk directly to the instructor.
