Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is for the most part well-organized. There are only a few advisers for the program so it is easy to feel comfortable and supported but at the same time, the advisers can get overwhelmed by the number of students. When I first began, the program definitely wasn't as organized as I would have liked it to be but it has improved.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

CCSU's graduate program in history offers a great one on one work experience with a faculty member in your field of study. Overall, all the other faculty also offer great individualized assistance to your education. The only downside to the graduate program in history is that it is more catered to U.S. history than other fields. Looking back I would still have picked CCSU because for me the one on one work and research is what I find of value and worth getting a great learning experience.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

Great professors who can provide feedback and assistance. Professors will help you find network opportunities and school provides opportunities for your chosen careers. Not that much to do around the area though.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

I think that there are only a few cons to this program and that is the lack of financial support. Other than that the professors are very helpful and accommodating. I love my program.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The major pro of this program is that it is a fast-paced, 13 month program. It provides not only great classroom learning, but also classroom experience to prepare for a teaching career. The con is the massive workload!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The school is in New Britain, which, if you haven't been there, I'd understand why -- there is no reason to ever go to New Britain except for CCSU. It is close to Hartford and the lack of distraction may be useful for studying, so I'm not, per say, knocking CCSU in the teeth. The professors in the Biology/Chemistry departments are very good and determined to see you succeed. Professors range from local school graduates to successful Yale post-docs. They are a talented group. Overall, the school is a good bang for your buck.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

This graduation program has the potential to be very useful but there are there is a huge variation in the class difficulty and structure from class to class. The whole program does not appear to have a flow.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

I have been so pleased by the opportunity to network with other future professionals in my discipline. The department leadership is committed to cultivating strong future leaders. The dialogue in the classroom is excellent - great professors and fellow students. I have learned a great deal in the short time I have been involved in this department and am looking forward to continuing my studies.
