I loved the college, it was teachers that worked in the real world and was able to use real world examples to teach. Also very flexible schedules to allow the student to continue to work.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently a graduate student at Columbia College working towards getting my Masters in Special Education. I have already had two friends go through the graduate program and both have had nothing but positive words. However, I do not start my graduate program until fall of 2017. Although I do not start till then, I have recently graduated from Columbia College with my undergrad degree of BA in English Literature and I also began working towards my Education degree during my time as an undergrad. Honestly, I have nothing but good things to say about Columbia College. Coming into my first semester, I was a freshman who was very scared to meet her professors and start college. I had been told horror stories, by friends who had graduated High School and started college before me, of bad experiences with professors and their lack of caring and understanding, and impersonal and large class sizes. Additionally, I watched way too many movies that showed the typical scary college professor teaching a lecture to a class of 400 students. When I started at Columbia College, though, I didn't encounter the same horror stories about awful classes and professors that I had been told about. I soon realized that, because of the small class sizes and small campus, my professors and classes were not as intimidating. Rather than being just a professor standing at the front of the room, I came to know my professors on a personal level that allowed me to feel comfortable talking to them not only as a mentor but also as a friend. There were many instances when I would walk down the hall and pass one of my professors and they always asked me a personal question to catch up on my life: "Hey! How's your brother doing? I know you told me he had soccer tryouts last week!""Hey! How was your job interview the other day?""Oh! you mentioned that you really liked this book in class, here is another book that you might like!" I became so close to my department professors that, to celebrate the seniors graduating, they threw us a lunch and gifted us each a book that was specific to our taste in literature or contributed to our plans for after college. I don't have many people who know me well enough to get me a book I will thoroughly enjoy, and I never expected that my college professors would become close enough to me to be able to do that. Also, I don't know any other college professors who will personally call you in the middle of the night after receiving a panicked email from you to talk things through and make sure you are okay. Each department strives to help you succeed and will go miles to help you: whether that be to find scholarships, job interviews, and even help on assignments. I can't put into words the amazing experience I have had at Columbia College and would probably be able to write pages and pages that highlighted all my fabulous experiences at Columbia College- not just highlighting great classes and professors, but also the amazing activities and friends that were made. My parents and a cousin all graduated from Columbia College and I am glad to carry on a Cougar Legacy. WE ARE- CC!!

This college is a great college to attend whether you are in Columbia, Missouri or not. They offer numerous online classes that will allow you to obtain your degree. You can also take a combination of in-seat and online classes to match up with your busy schedule. This school is taught mostly by people who are in the field currently so they have a lot of experience and know what they are talking about. I would highly reccommend it.

Columbia College allowed me to expand my knowledge about my career field while providing me the flexibility to work on my coursework when I had the time (online classes). The professor's had real-world experience that I understood and appreciated and I value the education that I earned.

I really enjoy the online graduate program at Columbia College. All of the teachers in the graduate program are very knowledgeable, have been very helpful, and challenged my way of thinking. I do wish that Columbia College offered graduate degrees at all of there locations. I miss having the classroom experience. I also think they could expand the Masters Degrees offered. Overall, I am very satisfied with Columbia College that is why I choice to continue my education with them.
