Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2013

My graduate program has given the opportunity to receive a masters degree and continue to work full time and spend time with my family. The program was online and most of the classroom practicums could be completed at the school that I was employed at. The actual university was located in a different state but the communication from the staff made it very easy to attend. The counselors were very helpful and professional. I would definitely recommend Grand Canyon to anyone.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I am extremely happy to be part of the TESOL program at Grand Canyon University. There are many advantages that this program has. Being an online program, you have the flexibility to work at your own pace, of course, keeping up with the due dates. The support you get from the academic advisors, professors, and staff is admirable! They are always willing to go the extra mile to help you. I also like the way the program is designed, the length of the program and the sequence of the courses are well organized. The disadvantage that I can point out about this online program is the fact of not having that personal interaction with colleagues and professor. Other than that, this program is perfect for many of us that have a full-time job! Being able to work and attend a Masters program as a full time student is a blessing!

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel the online teacher certification program provided by Grand Canyon University is excellent. It allows students to further their education without an abrupt interruption of their lives. It is easily accessible, provides excellent information and teachers are very supportive. The cons of this program is that it is continuous, not designed for students to take a break, so they may feel overwhelmed or get quickly burnt out.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my program of study is that it prepares me to meet the challenges of life in other people's lives. I am preparing to become a minister of the Gospel of Christ Jesus it will help me to meet the social and crisis/threats that face people's lives on a constant basis. It allows me the opportunitiy to be able to minister to people's lives that are in crisis/threats that they face on a continual basis in their individual lives. The cons to my program of study is that I might not be able to find immediate employment through this type of program. This type of program does not afford me the opportunity to move into a position of work unless I start my own church.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel the pros of my program are that it is online and I am able to do the work on my own time. I also have time to do things I need to get done and still get my work done on time. The major con of my school is the group projects are hard to do. They are online and is very hard to talk with others in my group.
