Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is not very challenging, and the faculty - while nice- are not very organized. There is no cohesiveness, and you can never get the same answer from any two people. I paid for my letters, but did not learn anything. The perk: full time advanced standing students can graduate in as little as 9 months.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Dominican University has a very flexible and responsive graduate program in alternative licensure with a Masters in Special Education! I have learned how to use my past experiences in and out of the classroom to affect change inside my own classroom of special education students. The course selection was relevant, hands-on, and included a lot of collaboration among students and professors. If you are looking for a university that treats you with respect and source of knowledge, this is the school for you! Our program met off campus in a centralized location that benefitted all working professionals. The online components of the course allowed independent work and instant feedback from peers and professors. I have enjoyed the customer service through the college's registrar and my academic advisor. They have helped me make sure I'm enrolled and all payments will be received on time! This university is also very cost effective and not overbearing--especially as a full-time educator myself.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Dominican is a great school that I feel helps me as much as they can both financially and academically. I felt that I had options and it was easy to find information when I was looking for it. Although, some of the information i felt was important I didn't figure out until later, like what work I needed to do in order to continue getting a scholarship.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

Dominican University was a great opportunity for me to further my education while still working. I pursued a Master of the Arts in Teaching while Teaching and it was great because the courses were very informational and allowed for a lot of hands on application in the classroom. The workload was also manageable while still being in school. I would definitely recommend this program to interested students.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

Dominican should not have an Advanced Standing option. The curriculum is a direct repeat of undergraduate social work, and honestly, the only positive is the fact that the school has a 9 month program. I would advise perspective Advanced Standing students to look elsewhere if they are interested in learning more.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2010

Dominican University is a small, private catholic University with thoughtful, caring faculty and staff. They are just as welcoming to commuter students as to resident students. Set in a beautiful suburb of Chicago, it affords many opportunities for activities off campus. They are very well respected for their various masters programs.

It was a lovely experience and I made a lot of network connections. The professors were some of the best in their field and as diverse as the student body.
