I thought it was a good college for my major. The cost was affordable and the professors were knowledgeable.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The program was well designed and worked for a working adult. Instructors genuinely care about students and I not only learned the theories I needed to know, but also taught me important life lessons I now use every day.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Holy Family University was a great choice for both myself and my husband. The prices were affordable, financial aid was very helpful in figuring everything out from the beginning. We never had any issues getting transcripts, proof or payment or any documents needs from them. The food on campus was good, only students could fob through the front doors of buildings insuring safety and security. The advisors were always helpful and supportive and best of all the teachers were amazing. They made everything tie to real life and make sense.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The biggest strength that the Masters of Education Degree with Pennsylvania Certification, Level 1 Early Elementary Pk-4 graduate program has to offer are the staff service and professional growth in the area of study. However, their weakest point from my point of view has been the financial aid programs. The university has limited financial aid programs for graduate students.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The teachers were great and the campus is very accessible. A lot of the work at the time seemed very worthwhile, but education is always changing and I felt some of the material was outdated.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program is able to help me further my career and goals for becoming a school counselor. The classes are just the right size to get the discussions and feedback from both professors and other students. It is difficult to pick which classes to take when it comes to scheduling, but there are so many support systems and advisers than you can talk to and will help you with figuring out the best options for your schedule.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this program is that it puts a strong emphasis on case studies. Although students can quickly forget definitions learned in a text book, case studies allow student to apply and learn from experience. The cons of this program is that it is not well known yet.

The MS program in Counseling at Holy Family University is fabulous and offers many opportunities for students. There are 5 different concentrations to customize your degree and better prepare you for your future. A practicum and intership are required to enhance your education and gain practical experience in your chosen field prior to graduation. The faculty and staff is very caring and supportive to all students; the classes are offered conveniently in the evening hours to accomodate those who are working full time. In my opinion, there are no cons to this program!!
