Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

One good thing about my graduate program is that it is one of the few programs that offer an MBA degree in the field of dietetics. Most schools only offer an M.S. but at Dominican University, we are able to dive into the business side of nutrition. Another pro of my program is the faculty. Though we a pretty small compared to other colleges on campus, the staff and faculty members are a great help and ensure that the students move on to become successful professionals in their field. Living in Chicago, the weather can be drastic. Having to drive to different rotations/internship sites can be very hard. That is why one of the main cons of my program is the travel we have to do as students between driving to campus and to other sites. Lastly, because Dominican University is a private institution, tuition and other fares are pretty high. This has left me to turn to more student loans. In general, I am pleased where I am at and excited to graduate from this prestigious campus.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the program, the faculty and professors go above and beyond for the students. The program has flexibility as on line and on campus classes are offered. The only downside is that the school is not big enough in order to get big companies to come in and recruit students.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2015

There are only 2 real options for a MLIS degree in the state of Illinois, and I do believe Dominican has a better program than University of Illinois. The professors really try to get to know you, and you will see familiar faces throughout the program.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is well known for the Library Information Science program and therefore has a wonderful reputation. The faculty in this particular school are well-respected and knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful and the surrounding neighborhood where this school resides is upper class and very well maintained. The cons would simply be price. It is a private institution, therefore it is quite expensive, however, the financial aid staff are very helpful.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

Dominican has a respected graduate program. However, they are expensive and really don't provide much in the way of scholarships and financial aid. They do offer satellite programs, which is helpful.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Dominican's MLIS program is first-rate for Illinois residents who do not want to do U of I's online program or go out of state. The professors have a variety of work experience and are available to help at any time. The professors and administration also have many networking links and are willing to help students enter the professional world. I have been very happy with the program thus far.
