Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The online program is great for individuals who cannot attend campus classes. It makes obtaining your graduate degree more attainable. This program is very time consuming and equally if not more difficult than attending the brick and mortar school. It is recommended that you not work while in the program but if you have to, with a lot of hard work and determination you can get you degree.

Catholic is a great school to attend. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area, its really close to downtown D.C. I particularly love my program. The school of social work is awesome. The staff is knowledgeable and supportive.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros certainly include small class numbers with easy accessibility to instructors, as well as their openness to facilitate student understanding of coursework as they are able. Cons include a very limited offering of evening or night courses. For the professional graduate student balancing their professional life and their academic pursuits a greater course offering in the late afternoon, evening, or nighttime is really important to completing their coursework in a timely manner.

The pros of my graduate program is the location and times the clasees are offered! They are sure to provide evening classes to help with students who work full time. The staff and profossers in the Social Work department and very nice, helpful and supportive. The school communicates very well with students and is dedicated to ensuring we are prepered to take the licensure test after graduation!

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I love my program. It is geared towards the working teacher and the professors are amazing. They are always available outside of the classroom. The classes I have taken worked wonderfully with my practicum. I have learned so much in the classroom and it amazing to take that knowledge and apply it directly to the classroom in my practicum. The only down side is that the classes are often only once a week for 3-4 hours which can be quite long. As it is a graduate program there is a lot of outside reading and work, but it is comparable to other programs.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program for tuition alone is $44,500.00 which is just unaffordable on its face but then it is an extra $9,000.00 grand minimum for housing, $500.00 if you want to have a car, and random fees.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2018

Competitive and yet supportive, academically and professionally. Having an easy walk to the DC metro system allows for a social life to be as busy or as laid back as you want it to be, whether you're on campus or off.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: The exposure to so many amazing librarians who are deeply knowledgeable in their field. The breadth of exposure in the program. Access to numerous other library institutions. Networking opportunities. Career opportunities upon graduation (There are numerous academic, public, and federal libraries in the surrounding metropolis that make choosing this program highly valuable). A graduate student association that is active. Numerous levels of student support that permeate the campus. Cons: Cost (It is high). Not a lot of options for graduate housing.
