The benefits are: Online course allowed for more time to work at home or at another job. Professors try to make the online experience as comfortable as attending a class in person, through different online avenues.

Excellent online Masters of Library Science. Degree is useful in many job areas. Somewhat crowded, with competition to register for required classes.

Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

The online library science program at Clarion University is excellent. The courses are well taught, and I love the flexibility the online program provides. Even though it is online, there are many opportunities for interaction among instructors and students. The cost of the online program is very reasonable for out-of-state students. I feel that I am receiving an excellent education at Clarion.

Some of these questions do not really related to the excellent web-based program that clarion offers in Library and Information Science. The program is very instructive and taught by wonderful teachers.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of the graduate program I am attending are small classroom settings to ensure pragmatic relationships with professors. In addition, the graduate program allots clinical work in order to ensure experience for my future career. The con to this graduate program is that the schooling is so intense that working even a part-time job is discouraged.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

I have loved my experience in the speech path graduate program here at Clarion. The faculty make your feel important and will go to great lengths to make sure you do well in their classes. The department chair is wonderful and helps not only with academic situations and difficulties but is more than willing to help with other aspects of life. Like all graduate programs, the material can be challenging. Here at Clarion, with the faculty's knowledge and accessibility and your work ethic, you will not only have success within the classroom but you will walk away able to apply what you're learning to "the real world." My one concern when applying to Clarion's program was that Clarion is a small town in rural Western PA. When I graduate, I anticipate on living in South Central PA between Harrisburg and Baltimore. I was afraid that my schooling here and my experiences within the area wouldn't provide the knowledge and training that I would need to work in a larger, more diverse area of the state. Now that I have been in the program for two semesters, I understand that what I am learning here will be a great knowledge base for my first job. Clarion is a great choice if you are looking for a graduate program with small class size, professor accessibility and an atmosphere that makes you feel at home.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2014

I am an online student and the flexibility of being able to work and complete the courses has been great. I felt like a lot of the instruction I've been receiving has been applicable in my current job as a library assistant. The classes have been challenging and interesting at the same time.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2014

I attended Clarion for my B.A. and am currently working on Masters at Clarion. The curriculum and professors have all been wonderfully helpful and encouraging. The class choices are great. I am a distance education student and I have always felt a part of Clarion campus for which I am entirely grateful. I know some people have felt a disconnect just depending on the professor they are taking but I have never felt that way at Clarion.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I am currently attending Clarion University's online distance program, and I am fully enjoying it! Each of my professors has creatively shared pertinent information with me as a student. My courses are preparing me for the real job world. Clarion's distance program uses a variety of specialized internet-based tools, which makes learning interesting and efficient. I'm always curious to find out how I will learn new information. The projects that I complete push me to experiment with new technology and develop relevant tools that benefit me and others.
