Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is excellent! The professors are extremely knowledgeable in the field of higher education, both at the present moment and also how the field is changing. The workload is a lot, but it is manageable; plus, it is graduate school so you should expect more work. Students in my program are easy to get along with, and the courses we are required to take are excellent.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are that it is very competitive and they teach you a lot but the cons are that it is a lot of work, especially with students who work full-time or have families. I believe that it is not how much you do but the quality of the education.

The pros are that it is very competitive and professors have a wide range of knowledge. The cons are that they do not cater to full time workers, they give excessive amounts of homework.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I am pursuing a Master's of Geography with a Global Sustainability focus. This is a unique program in the New England region which has been in existence since 2010. The professors in the department are accessible and willing to assist you. The quality of education and value in education are both on the higher end of the spectrum. The campus is beginning to connect more with the New Britain community. There is still room for improvement in this area. The biggest con is the lack of safe routes for biking to campus.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are that I am able to understand in more detail what it takes to teach foreign language to young students. The cons are that I am not able to finish in a quick time frame since all the classes are not offered when I am free from teaching.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

So far my experience with the graduate program has been such. Of course it's summer, so professors are out of reach, which is unfortunate when incoming students need to register for classes, have questions, etc. I also have found the campus a little too big; sometimes one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. I've been sent from office to office in pursuit of answering a question, and this seems to be the norm. My program seems to be a fledgling, so I'm looking forward to it, but I wish it were more established. Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to the school year- hopefully some of these scores will improve!!

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

Great program for those interested in applied history - museum work, public programs, etc. But hard to find a job that will pay off student loans. Also high degree of favortism among faculty - get on their good side early and let them direct your research and internship. If you want to come up with your own research, you might have trouble with faculty support.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

My education, work experience, and career success have created a strong foundation for my next phase of earning a doctoral degree and serving the community. My goal is to augment my existing education and career experience that can act as a complement to my skills and guide me to be capable in enlightening high school students. It is my goal to increase lectures to inner-city students by talking to students and encouraging them to finish high school and for them to consider going to college. I want to broaden the scope of lectures with my own personal story of struggle, success, and triumph – emphasizing the benefits of a college education.

Central CT State University has flexible schedules that is great for working students. Also the amount of extra help available is great. The complaint is that the work load is extremely difficult to keep up with especially if you have a full time job.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Plenty of support from faculty who only want you to understand the information the best you can. The students are passionate about the work that they are learning which is great. I wish there was more time to go in-depth about the material. But the professors are amazing with the time given. Transportation is great for those who cannot drive or wish to commute to campus. As for costs, books are a little costly and so is food on campus. It is better to buy books used and supplies elsewhere. Also, it's better to eat at home or bring food to class so that you are not wasting money.
