Student & Graduate Reviews

3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2012

Small class size was very important to me, but since I have graduated the class size has grown. I got an excellent degree and passed our final boards with flying colors, so I know I was well prepared. However, getting a bachelors and Masters degree from a private, catholic school, comes with a very heavy price tag.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Gannon offers a diverse selection of majors and has a very helpful and intelligent teaching staff. I have had little success with their carreer aid services but all other aspects of the network are pretty good. The surrounding area is growing slightly less safe year to year but does offer a lot to do and many transportation options. I feel the education I am receiving at Gannon is slightly over-priced but valuable and I have found the material helpful in the pursuit of my goals.
2.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall, Gannon's Computer Science Graduate Program is pretty good. However, the program is not very conducive to someone working full time and results in a struggle each semester when trying to find a class to take. They offer no online graduate courses and rarely have night classes. There are also no courses offered over the summer months so to try to finish in a timely fashion is close to impossible.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that this graduate program has a high level of distinguished recognition for the accomplishment and expertise of the faculty and for the experiential learning provided to the students. The program is available to students who start as freshmen and also to those who have received an undergraduate degree, making each graduating class unique and well-versed in many areas of study from biology to engineering to psychology, to music studies. A particular downfall to this graduate program is the quantity of students allowed into the program. While there is no competition for spots in the program once accepted, the sheer amount of students makes it difficult to cover topics as efficiently.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

There are a lot of pros for my graduate program. I like that the last two years of the program contains a lot of clinical work in a physical therapy setting. Gannon University also has body simulators where the body can be set to any type of issue and can be treated to stimulate a real life situation. This program is very successful, which a lot of people get jobs after they graduate. Students have an easy time getting their license, because they are well prepared. The cons about the program is that the tuition is very expensive.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Great Online Professors and Programs. Tuition could be more affordable.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Small classes and individualized attention. Not much diversity in my program
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I went to Gannon University for the majority of my undergrad time as well and thoroughly enjoyed my time in the classroom. However, when I decided to pursue my Master's, I researched several schools and programs, and Gannon seemed to offer me the best fit. I work full time and am raising a family, so the convenience of quality education online but the campus being local made it an easy choice. I have had my own support person from admissions to scheduling and the professors are highly knowledgable in what they teach ( many actually practice in the fields they teach) and are extremely helpful.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

The Physicians Assistant program is highly competitative and a lot of work. However, it prepares you to take the PANCE and many students are offered jobs before they graduate. You apply as an undergrad and then don't have to deal with the hassel of applying to grad schools your senior year.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Online program is working out the bugs, but has proven to be an effective way of learning
