Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Edgewood College prepared me well for working in the field of education--I use something I learned in my courses on a daily basis. Participating in the Adult Secondary Program (ASP) was an enriching experience for me. Based on a cohort model, the supportive network that was established from day one was invaluable. The instructors are highly knowledgeable and work in local school districts, so they have keen insight into the field of education as well as the pulse of the community.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

Being able to attend a program that allows me to continue my work as a school principal while earning my superintendency and doctorate is a definite pro. Furthermore, the abilty to network and to complete authentic tasks are great advantages of this program. The only con that I can think of is the cost, but expecting a doctoral program to be anything, but expensive would be unreasonable.

Edgewood College has many pros such as: flexible schedules, small class sizes, qualified professors, and the benefit of a close-knit community. It also has many cons, such as: cost of tuition, homogeneous population, and limited course selection.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The hybrid nature of this program allows me to continue my career as a school principal while working toward my doctorate and superintendency. The con is easily the cost per credit.

Graduation Year: 2013

Great school overall. Would have liked a bit more of a research component in a graduate program, but still able to provide relevant and meaningful program content.

Edgewood offers the opportunity to complete graduate studies in a face to face format or online. The faculty are knowledgeable and the peer cohort provides the support and resources to meet the high demands of the doctoral program.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Edgewood's marriage and family therapy program is academically rigorous. I feel as though I am getting my money's worth out of the challenge and difficulty I am experiencing in this program. The program is expensive, however, compared to other comparable master's programs in the area.

Pros and Cons of Going to Graduate School Deciding to go to graduate school is a major life decision and is a huge commitment. Hence, if you're unsure whether you want to go to graduate school or not, it's best to weigh the advantages and disadvantages. Pros Chance to Work with Professors As a graduate student, I will find many opportunities to work with professors. Working with professors will provide excellent work experience in my specialized field of study. Learn More About a Subject I Enjoy I will get to study subjects much more in depth than I did in undergraduate courses. Do Your Own Research Rarely do I get to research whatever I want when I am working, but in graduate school, I will have the opportunity to choose a research topic and do as I please. Earn a Higher Salary On average, students with graduate degrees earn a higher salary than students with only a bachelors degree. Many jobs now prefer to hire applicants with graduate degrees, and so a graduate degree could present a job opportunity unavailable to undergraduates. Cons Cost of Graduate School Graduate school can be expensive. Stress Graduate school may be stressful for some because of the depth at which graduate students study their subject.
