Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2013

Gardner-Webb offered a flexible schedule and allowed me to take my courses at my own pace. I had continuous support form my adviser and cohort leader. I was very satisfied with the courses and the support from my professors. I was able to complete my add on degree within 2 years. I am also thinking about going back to Gardner-Webb for my doctorate degree.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I was blessed with the awesome opportunity to attend Gardner Webb University to obtain a Master's Degree. I was a student in the Fayetteville cohort. Being able to be in a program with small class sizes allowed me to get more one on one support. The professor is the same throughout the program and they go the extra mile to make sure that you understand the content and go to the next level. I also love the Christian principles the university is founded on and the support system that is present.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

This is an excellent school that is growing to accommodate more options for degrees. The teachers have good content knowledge and are willing to assist when needed. The library/ media staff is very helpful. This is not the most affordable option for receiving a doctoral degree.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2007

This program of study prepared me for my position as a school administrator. Professors were knowledgeable, engaging, and promoted collaboration and critical thinking through assignments and class activities. This program enabled me to graduate from the program prepared to perform the job responsibilities of a school administrator effectively.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is a long program; much longer than many other for the same field, but it is worth it. We have a practicum and two internship experiences to ensure that we get hands-on experience in counseling before going out into the real world. The professors genuinely care for the health and well-being of the students, and from my experience, try hard to create a personal bond with each one of them. The town is small, but you can make very good and close friends there as well. There are even multiple degree options within the counseling school: school counseling, mental health counseling, and a combined divinity and mental health counseling degree.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I am an adult learning pursuing my MSN to become a family nurse practitioner. I am mainly and on-line student but we also participate in some hybrid classes. This program is a 3-year program, and that has been a blessing to me, as it has allowed me to work and pursue my dream of becoming a nurse practitioner.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a very good graduate program. However since I was online some of the questions in the rating did not actually pertain to me.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Gardner-Webb is a school with poise. It caters to all of its students to the point where you feel you are the most important person to professors and administrators. The overall value of the degree is high in comparison to other institutions of higher learning.
