Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020

I attended Fairfield University for my undergraduate and am starting my MSN degree in Family Nursing (NP program). Something that I love about Fairfield is the fact that they provide a curriculum that is challenging but also mindful of students who work full-time and have families. The teachers are professional, are always willing to help and go above and beyond to help you achieve your professional goals.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2019

Fairfield University is a fantastic school for people who are very driven and are academically inclined. I have great academic support from the professors and the classes are academically and intellectually challenging. I think that I received a far better education here than in my undergraduate school. I feel that the classes are provided me a strong foundation for my career in teaching. I have met many like minded teachers in my program and the school fosters strong relationships between the members of their graduate programs. It has allowed me to network with people from other districts and exchange ideas on classroom instruction and curriculum.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

This program is rigorous but expensive! It is not affordable to live on campus or near campus. Fairfield, CT is an expensive part of CT to live in. The faculty and curriculum is great and I really enjoy it!

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Fairfield University has many connections within its surrounding areas. Students graduating with a Master's degree in teaching are highly respected in nearby school systems. The faculty prepares you as much as possible for any challenges you will face in the future. However, the students enrolled in the graduate programs are very homogeneous. Plus, the town of Fairfield is extremely expensive to live in, especially for current students who may or may not have a source of income while continuing their studies.

I love my undergraduate experience and I will start my graduate classes in a couple of weeks and I expect them to be equally outstanding.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

My program is filled with faculty that guide and help you to succeed in the program. They challenge you to think differently and are open to tough challenging discussions. I think the school should provide better ways for graduate students to pay for school such as scholarships, grants instead of relying on just loans.
