Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

It is a simple way to earn a graduate degree with only one class a week for four hours. With additional work.The program lasts 19 months but it is made simple for those who need to work.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The work, so far, has been interesting and when comparing what the employment opportunities are out there, it looks to be good preparation. This program is challenging. The doctoral program is by no means easy but I am meeting excellent fellow students as well as instructors and staff. The campus appears friendly and welcoming.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

So far I am really loving Grand Canyon University. I have one degree from another online program, and truly wished I had found Grand Canyon first for that degree. From the very first contact I had with my enrollment counselor, who by the way still routinely calls me, it's been a good experience. I have never felt like an invisible dollar sign like I did the other school. I feel like Grand Canyon really does it right. They have it in them to be honorable and dignified, and it shows in all they do. They are a first class organization.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in love with my program. Going to school on line is wonderful. I have time to work and still do my classwork. I have a wonderful support team. So far my classes are fine. I love the fact that GCU is a spiritual school.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

I am an online student so therefore not all areas applied to me that were on the survey. I received my BA from Grand Canyon University and decided to continue my education there through their Masters Program. I am quite pleased with the online experience that I have had with GCU. The instructors have all been well qualified, which is shown by their contributions to the discussion questions. I would highly recommend Grand Canyon University (online) to anyone who was interested in pursuing a higher level of education.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Special Education will allow me to work with children who sruggle academically. The program will open up a career for me in makeing a difference for our future. The cons of my graduate program is that our economy is cutting back on teachers forceing the field to be challenging when it comes to getting the employers to hire faculty.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The biggest pro of this program is that the online format allows me to have a career and to be flexible on my own terms. The campus is nice and the teachers have all been helpful thus far. My academic and financial advisors have kept in contact with me as well. The con for me is the lack of physical interaction with peers, but this is a given with the online format. Teachers and peers are still very accessible when needed.
