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.

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.

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.

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.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is great, it really teaches you a lot about what social work is all about, good clinical program and the classes are excellent with professionals in the field teaching them. I strongly recommend others to attend the program at Dominican University. I had a great experience. The students learn the main skills to become an effective social work. The atmosphere is friendly and helpful.

I feel that the instructors at Dominican have been fantastic; consistently being flexible with the demands of adult students. I feel the assignments were tedious and not very beneficial to my learning. It often felt like they just needed an assignment to justify a grade. Studying in a profession that requires a very broad perspective on the world, I expected their would be greater opportunity to share our perspectives with our peers. The biggest negative I can identify is the inconsistency in expectations for completing the program at an off campus site. On one hand I was told I would be able to complete the program attending two nights a week at the same off-site facility, but on more than one occasion my classmate and I had to campaign to get the necessary classes at our facility.
