Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The most difficult part about doing this program online is trying to coordinate sites for practicum and clinic work.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: This program has shown me the value in reaching deep within to learn more introspectively on what it is that drives us and what it is we want to do. Often times people ask, why are we here. I think I can help people to ask a better question now, what are they doing while they are here. I feel the goals and principles that help us have direction can support the results we are striving to achieve in any situation. Thinking about that end in mind. Helping organizations, groups or even our families connect and find their passion in life. The Communications and Leadership studies has been very beneficial to my own personal and professional growth. I feel that there are differences in this program from what I have read in others. Certainly when you review the Cons you may feel that I do not find value, however, the value is great and has been high in VOI and ROI. Cons: The cost has been high for an online program, the name recognition of GU could be stronger for that investment. I am proud of what I have done, and think the school can brand itself even more. The thesis work that is set to occur could be minimized or removed all together. This contribution may or may not be a benefit. As an individual it is more of a barrier to seeing the end in the program. Other schools may not require as much.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2016

I think the program teaches a lot of interesting information but I'm constantly looking for how I can actually apply it to a future career. I wish that were more evident.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I sought out opportunities to feel connected to my program even though I live in Texas and 95 percent was online. I have a two day immersion coming up in November. Staff was accessable and helpful, ancillary staff was also very good. I can not speak to transportaion, surrounding area or safety as I was not present on campus. I feel exceptionally prepared to educate other nurses.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: The instructors have been great at presenting a wealth of material in interesting ways that really engage classroom participation and spark interest in new fields of study, the instructors respond in a very reasonable time frame and notify students of when they will be unable to respond quickly, the instructors truly hold students accountable for their work so you are not just breezing through classes and will hear both the good and bad qualities of the work you turn in. Cons: The school is very expensive and do does not offer any scholarships for graduate students. The financial aid office is not very helpful in helping students figure out how to pay for schooling.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

As an online graduate degree program it is rigorous and challenging. The professors are accessible and care about students; they help guide and support us during each course as well. I feel challenged with the program. I definitely feel it's worth my time and investment.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is very involved in the community. Learning out in the real world with local non profit organizations has been invaluable at this school.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the Mental Health Counseling Program are that I will be obtaining my Master's degree and be able to work in a mental health setting and fufill my goal of becoming a counselor. Also I will be able to gain an abundant amount of experience throughout the graduate program. The cons of the graduate program are that tuition is very expensive and financial aid is not available, besides loans.
