The business program offers a solid academic foundation, however the school overall struggles to gain national recognition. The university is located in a tourist town that has nothing but restaurants and beachwear stores. Office jobs are virtually nonexistent or pay a minimum wage for a Bachelor degree level of work. As a result, kids graduate with Bachelor degrees and are forced to accept low level work, if they are lucky to even find jobs outside of the service industry. Many graduates in this area continue to wait tables even after graduation regardless of the degree just to support themselves. Campus recruitment does not exist here because employees don't come on campus. Useless career services office only adds to the frustration as it can't even organize a decent campus job fair. Very unfortunate because the school is nice and the staff genuinely tries to make it a great experience for students. However, a school is only good if it can help you find a job.

I am participating in online courses and have found the quality of instruction to be of high quality. I am able to apply what I am learning to my career and see the relevance in the course.

I love this program and the values it stands behinds. I love to learn about the important teaching fundamentals on how to further my career in education. I do not love the cost of the program!!

The Masters in Arts of Teaching program at Coastal Carolina is an extremely helpful one. I majored in History and never took any education classes at CCU and in 14 months I will learn how to become a teacher. The fact that the faculty members are able to turn students that for the most part have taken no education classes in their undergrad career and turn them in to teachers in 14 short months is amazing. On the negative side of things the is not very much time for students to collect financial aid. Students are accepted mid-April and classes start in June. The only recommendation I have is that the admission process should be moved up.

I feel that the Masters of the Art of Teaching (MAT) program has many pros and cons. I feel that, we, the students, have become adequately prepared for our future teaching careers through the classes taken through the MAT program. I also feel that we are held to high standards with the MAT program, which instills good work ethic and workplace performance in each of us. It is also a pro that our professors are readily accessible in times of need and are more than willing to help solve any problem that we may have. The MAT program is an ever-changing program at Coastal Carolina University, and the fact that we have multiple people reminding us of different things (dates, meetings, etc.) tends to get a little confusing. Thus, minor communication issues would be my biggest con of the MAT program at Coastal Carolina. Other than that, everything with the MAT program is splendid!

Provided a great opportunity to extend your learning beyond the classroom. Many classes were online, so I could work at my own pace. It was very suitable to my schedule as a full-time teacher. Professors and classmates were great to work with.

Uses real-life situational application in the classroom instead of just boring lectures. Teachers are very open to interest in making sure students are progressing through the program. The faculty in charge of scheduling and programming for the program is excellent. Only downfall would be how much is actually taught in the classroom. Teachers can be scattered over what they will grade and what deliverables will actually be expected of the class.
