Student & Graduate Reviews

4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are that Goddard offers an accredited MFA degree in writing, allowing literary artist to perfect their craft in screenwriting, play writing, poetry and novel writing. Goddard allows students to explore their interests. It offers and environment for independent thinkers as well as entrepreneurial mindsets. The instructors are professional writers and they respect the craft and the students. The only con that I could see is that Goddard students spend only one week on campus. This may cause some sadness since students bond quickly. Waiting six months to see each other again is hard.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Goddard College is different from any other college I looked at. The graduate program in Psychology or Mental Health Counseling allows the students to design courses based on their personal interests and state licensing requirements. All of the campus faculty, mentors, and students that I have encountered during my time with Goddard have been very open, helpful, and accepting of others.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2014

The advisors provide an awesome mentorship experience. Communication and administration aren't always the best. The cohorts are filled with amazingly talented and interesting people.

Excellent for independently motivated students who want to design their own program.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

Goddard is not for everyone, but for folks who are looking for an awesome way to get a degree without giving up your life for 4 years, Goddard is the way to go. Great for non-traditional students as you get to create your own curriculum. You will be pushed to the limits in the best of ways by your advisers, don't expect to be un-challenged in this environment, you will be.
