Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in the Green MBA program and will receive an MBA in Sustainable Enterprise. I have only just begun but my first semester was an amazingly transformative experience. This program is about a whole different way of thinking and being in the world.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2015

I really love attending my school. The education program is full of extremely knowledgeable professors who all still work in classrooms, so they're familiar with what is actually happening in schools. Dominican has you go out into classrooms right away, which is very important, because that way you get a grasp for what it's actually like working in classrooms, rather than just learning the theory behind it. The professors are all very accessible by email, and more than willing to help you. They all clearly love what they do, and will get into any discussion with you, whether it has to do with what you're learning in their class or not. The only drawback to Dominican is that it's a private school, so tuition is expensive. However, they give scholarships to students based on their GPA's in undergrad, so that helps.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

I have enjoyed the program and the people at Dominican. The campus is beautiful and the surrounding area is fabulous but is also expensive and there isn't too much to do for students. It is a very demanding program with a lot of coursework but you will be well prepared and will complete 4 different types of fieldwork. The program seems heavily focused on mental health.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

While tuition is expensive and the cost of living in the area is quite high, the Counseling program is fantastic. The instructors are highly knowledgeable and truly committed to helping students become successful and competent therapists. The campus is beautiful and feels very safe. I am thoroughly enjoying my time here at Dominican even though it is challenging work!

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Now that I am attending a private school to complete my graduate studies, I can see that one of the greatest pros is the accessibility to faculty. Most of the instructers are very kind, intelligent, and genuinely care about their students. The biggest con of Dominican's graduate program is the cost. Each unit costs approximately $1000, which makes the entire OT program cost approximately 80k. Despite the financial downside, I believe that completing my studies at Dominican will prove to be extremely beneficial and I have no doubt that I will be successful with finding a job immediately after graduation.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

My graduate program is very transformative and valuable on many levels, not just in the business world. The classes are small, allowing for more one-on-one instruction time.
