Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I could not grade some areas because I didn't live on campus. The graduate was very productive and we always used the learning communities in every courses. The learning community aided in the common core standards. I would advise others to the any of GCU education programs.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The best feature that graduate program offers is, creating opportunity for scholars to express, share, and acquire knowledges from colleagues pursuing the same career aspiration. Additionally, graduate program encourages ongoing academically appropriate writing practices. If there is one downfall about a graduate program, that would be the strict grading system that scholars has to follow.

Degree: Special Education

Group work within the classes can be frustrating because all the students are in different time zones.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are its flexibility, the cons are that it does not have the face-to-face interaction with other students.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Online class provides convenience for life outside the classroom, more communication with students, opportunity to experience other students perspectives, and a plethora of online resources to improve as a student and a writer. The only con for me that I have overcome is that I enjoyed going to class and listening to the instructor while taking notes. I am a very visual learner and miss the traditional classroom setting but I am willing to change for the betterment of my intelligence.

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is great academically speaking. However, I feel the students in this course are extremely under-qualified for a masters level program. The professors are very knowledgeable and seem to engage in the classroom when necessary as well as answer questions in a reasonable time frame. Over-all this program has provided me with extended knowledge that I will be able to take on to my professional career to be successful.

Graduate program load feels realistic, not a fake here is your degree program. Everything I have learned thus far I have been able to put to use. Teachers respond quickly, offer one-on-one assistance, and appear caring. Professors work in the field and can offer real-life expertise.
