The pros of the graduate program at Capella is allows for individuals to obtain the skill and knowledge to be successful in their respected career. Capella further provides opportunities for their learners the opportunity to apply their book and classroom learning with hand on application.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm in Integrative Studies, and my 1st 2 classes dealt mainly with career planning, which I don't need. Professors are knowledgable and available. You quickly learn which of your classmates can't read or follow directions, and limit your responses to those who can communicate well. Hey, but it's fairly inexpensive and they took a lot of transfer credits so I'm out in a year.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I enjoy working with Capella University because it allows me to continue to progress in my career while still reaching my dreams of becoming a Licensed Psychologist. This blend has allowed me to move forward personally and professionally in ways that would not have been possible had I chosen to attend a traditional PsyD program.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many pros to attending Capella University. I really appreciate the support that is provided by the faculty and how teamwork is encouraged, even with a doctorate program. I also really appreciate that Capella offers a social network for learners to befriend each other outside of the classroom. If I had to choose a downfall of Capella, I would have to say I am not too impressed with the financial aid. There is not much offered through the university, sometimes making it difficult for learners to complete their degrees.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of the program is the amount of knowledge you gain from the diverse level of courses provided. Students have the opportunity to openly discuss current events and issues that plague the counseling client. Also, being able to meet with other students and staff face to face twice during the program provides strength to complete the program and be successful. Some of the cons are the amount of resources available, especially tailored to the specific state of practice for the student.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Capella University is great in providing quality academic services towards the working professional or those who may not be able to access higher education in a traditional program. It provides quality instruction and allows students to gain access to research materials while also maintaining a work-life-academic balance.

Although it means a lot of work, I'm glad that Capella's online program is so rigorous! I'm being prepared well for my career as a professional school counselor.
