Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Grand Canyon University is an excellent institution that I would highly recommend to others. The convienence and ease of online classes made changing careers a very pleasant experience. I was always able to communicate with teachers, students and staff as needed. Anytime there was a concern, teachers and staffed addressed the issue and helped me along the way. The Christian based values and beliefs was also an added bonus to my educational journey at GCU!

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Attending GCU has been a wonderful experience! I am changing careers, so ensuring my success and having assistance along the way was very important to me. Anytime there was a concern, someone was there to help. As I working to complete a Masters in Early Childhood Education, I was required to communicate often with several different people to ensure hours were met, I was placed in classrooms correctly, and that all other requirements were met. I felt very comfortable working with everyone. Again, at anytime there was a problem, someone was there to help! The curriculum and online classroom was also very well structured and maintained. It was very easy to communicate with teachers and other students regardless of distance. GCU's Christian values are also a huge bonus! I love knowing that others have similar beliefs and values and we are all working towards a successful future! I would highly recommend GCU!

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

As a mother of two young children, and being in my mid-thirties, enrolling in Grand Canyon University's graduate program was scary, but I knew I needed to further my education to make my dreams a reality. Grand Canyon University's staff made me feel so comfortable and at ease during the enrollment process. All of their professors have been knowledgeable, supportive, and encouraging with a Christian background. I am exited to only have one more online class and my student teaching class left until I have my Masters in Elementary Education. I am so thankful for the education I have been provided to aid children in gaining the knowledge and skills to become active participants in the global society.

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Grand Canyon University is a school where if you want to succeed they have the ability to help you every step of the way. Starting out at Grand Canyon University felt a little strange at first, but once I realized how available every teacher, professor and counselor are more than willing to help with whatever I was struggling with till I got it. Learning online can be stressful sometimes because you feel you are teaching yourself, but you are not by yourself, discussion boards, live tutors and technology always updating. The only thing you need to do is do the work and realize the school is on your side and not out to get you. The degree program was excellent, coming from a bachelors in sports management, I knew there was going to be a learning curve, but with the help of the excellent staff at Grand Canyon I am graduated and pursuing a PH.D in Performance Psychology.
