Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Clarke University requires that all students must be able to meet on campus twice a month. This is very beneficial because we know who our instructors are, have met them face-to-face, and can contact them at any point in time. Although located in a small rural area (bordering Wisconsin and Illinois), Clarke University offers many diverse opportunities. These include but are not limited to working with patients of different ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds. The rural setting allows us to witness firsthand the lack of healthcare in these areas. This alone makes the DNP program priceless. Clarke will continue to provide practitioners for these clinically underdeveloped areas making huge strides for small populations all over. One of the cons is financial aid. At this point, every student has used their FAFSA limit. There are a limited number of scholarships available and the loans we can get accumulate interest quickly. Clarke University continues to do it's absolute best to provide us with all the assistance it can (Clarke was approved for a grant for this program but we must apply and it can't go to everyone). I believe in Clarke University and the instructors who provide us with their time and knowledge!

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

My teachers are great and they are always available to students.The professors are very knowledgeable about what they teach and I always feel like I have learned a lot when a semester comes to an end. They are constantly looking for new ways to prepare students for their careers and want each student to be successful.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel like the close niche of professors to students is a pro because this allows the students to have one on one time to ask for help or further explanation. A con of my graduate program is that there is little financial help for how much students give to be educated.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel like Clarke University's Graduate program really sets out to educate and promote life long learning. I feel that my education will be equal to if not superior to all other Physical Therapy Graduate Programs. The campus is small but it gives students and professors the chance to get to know each other and interact in a one-on-one fashion. The surrounding area is beautiful but housing can be expensive and living far away is a problem when traveling on hilly icy roads in the dead of winter. Overall, I wouldn't trade my graduate experience for anything.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the physical therapy graduate program are the faculty that teach the classes. They are always available either at school or at home to help you when you need it. Another bonus to the graduate program is the small campus. In each class, you will know everybody and will see them around campus. A con to the graduate program is how competitive it is.
