Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

There are definitely ample resources for students to use for success in the classroom. The academic support staff cares about the students and will do as much as they can to help. The structure of some of the courses could use revamping, which I know some are in the process of doing.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is rigorous and compels me to think in ways I haven't before. I highly recommend Creighton's leadership program because I have been supported from the moment I expressed interest in the college and through each of my classes. I know help and encouragement are only an email or phone call away.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

PROS: Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions offers not a Masters but a Clinical Doctorate in the field of Occupational Therapy (as well as a Post-Professional Doctorate program). Since the vision now (as stated by the American Occupational Therapy Association) is that all OTs will have their doctorate by 2025, this is especially helpful for future OTs currently seeking higher education. Furthermore, the professors are not only passionate and concerned with each student, most are still practicing therapists and therefore can offer current information or advice to their students. As for lectures, the material is difficult but adequate for a graduate student; students are graded and tested accordingly as the school has high hopes for each professional student. Students are also given their own laptops in which exams and notes are to be taken on, which is extremely helpful in terms of simplicity and organization. CONS: Creighton University is a private school and therefore, tuition can get quite pricey. Although this is not the fault of the school, there is also limited diversity within my program as well.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2015

The online pharmD program is extremely challenging but opens a door to many that would otherwise be impossible. The cost and annual trips to Omaha for labs are a negative. The quality of the education is outstanding.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

Some areas did not apply to me since I'm taking classes online thus the rating. Any degree you seek is going to require work and if it's important to you then the work isn't going to be a major concern.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I highly recommend Creighton's EdD in Leadership. The professors support the students and the coursework is immediately adaptable to one's profession.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Pro- Creighton established the nation's first Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree and is recognized as one of the top medical universities in the world. They employ high quality professors, many of whom are recognized as FAOTA (Fellow of the American Occupational Therapy Association). Con- As a Jesuit institution, Creighton's tuition is expensive compared to other OT programs.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

While I do greatly enjoy the freedom that the Liberal Studies program has in allowing us to take courses outside of the specified program, the courses offered within the program are not cohesive. The Pros: you are able to take courses at a relaxed pace, which is important considering that majority of students at this level are working full time jobs and taking care of families. Courses and the professors are relatively flexable and there is not feeling of needing to rush to complete your graduate program within 3 years. Cons: the underlying theme of "Understanding the World" falls short as there are only in-class readings of texts, much of them being literature from high school reading. The program is considered to be one of the adult degree programs and is charged at a lower rate, however, it is still quite expensivel for the course-load and manner of the program.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the small community feel of the law school. The professors are expected to be on campus 8 hours a day and when they're not in class they're in their offices. The school has an "open door policy." The professors keep their doors open whenever they're free and students are encouraged to just walk on in and talk with them. Out of all the schools I visited, this was the one that seemed most committed to excellence in academics. The administration is friendly and efficient, the professors are brilliant, the career development efforts are superb (especially if you want to practice in the midwest), and the campus is beautiful. If you're not religious, don't worry about the Jesuit thing; it really doesn't impact your day-to-day experience (other than the fact that it's a wet campus). My one area of disappointment so far is that the professors don't seem to be as demanding in upper-level courses, but many students would consider that a pro.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

There are many pros and cons to the distance pathway PharmD program at Creighton University. The obvious pro is that you don't have to move to attend classes on campus, which is perfect for those students who have families and/or jobs and are unable to move. Another pro is that the distance cohort becomes a tight knit group, even though we are spread out all over the US. Additionally, the school has many supports in place for distance students. The cons consist of missing out on campus activities, and having "live" class time. Additionally, the access to professors is not quite as easy, however, they have all been very accommodating and helpful.
