Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Since Health Psychology is a relatively new field in psychology, not many schools in the nation have it as a master's or doctorate program. However, I had my heart set on this genre of psychology, and I am glad that I chose CCSU to pursue this passion. While the cost of living in Connecticut is much higher than that of Pennsylvania, CCSU has the most affordable program of those to which I was accepted (even for being an out-of-state student). Graduate classes are all held at night such that students can have day jobs although it is quite challenging to have a full-time job and be a full-time student. Still, the staff is knowledgeable and the classes are educational, so the struggle feels worth it. I'm sure that I will graduate with the necessary qualifications and professional knowledge to begin a career in my chosen field.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The counselor education department has been very supportive and helpful throughout my time in the program. I was able to change tracks from professional counseling to school counseling very easily. Most of the professors and advisers are approachable and willing to help students achieve success.There are two student groups in the department- Counseling Society and Chi Sigma Iota Honors Society. Being involved with both groups and President of the Honors Society has given me many helpful experiences. There are many networking and learning opportunities available if you should choose to participate. There are some cons: some adjunct professors are not organized in the way they teach, creating waves of frustrated students. Group work in all classes is plentiful, and you realize very quickly who is taking their education seriously. Each professor also grades differently and some change project/paper criteria and guidelines the week before something is due.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I enjoy being with a cohort of students that are able to support one another. We are moving together through the program as a family. The courses are all interactive and not just a typical lecture. I enjoy the fact that we have both a practicum and internship to provide us with the in the field experience. I do however wish there were more staffing kn order for courses to be offered more often. I also dislike that books are often purchased but never used for the class. The program is great overall but like any other program it could be made beter. I'm proud to have a CCSU education.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education program at Central Connecticut State University is a brand new program that I believe will positively benefit the Connecticut Education system. In this program we are learning to update curriculum in STEM areas and use more interdisciplinary materials in our own classrooms. Cons to this program are hard for me to discuss at this time as I have only taken two classes thus far, but from my experiences in these classes I feel that if we could add a more hands-on aspect to the course content we would reach more of the educators that take these courses. Overall, I believe STEM is important that it should be shared in more content areas to be intertwined in our youths educational arsenal.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

As a graduate student, I do not live on campus. That means that I feel very disconnected to the school in general. I am unaware of many programs and activities that are available.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program comes from the supportive faculty and peers that I work with regularly. Unfortunately, as a secondary education teacher, I have currently felt that my program, which is k-12, has targeted more specifically to elementary education, and I would like to see more opportunities for classes guiding reading education for older students.
