Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2019

The clinical mental health counseling program is a CACREP accredited program. The professors are great, and have been involved in helping the students ease back into school since before day 1 of classes. This program offers classes such as basic counseling skills, counseling theories, group and individual counseling and assessment procedures for clinical mental health counseling. The program includes, but is not limited to, multicultural and diversity issues within counseling as wells as crisis and addiction counseling and family and systemic counseling.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

The Eberly MBA program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) is very well-suited for working adults looking to further their knowledge of business operations and management. The hybrid in-class and on-line format provides a good balance of personal instruction and self-paced learning. Most professors go out of their way to illustrate course concepts through practical examples and exercises. In particular, the instructors tailor their approach to accommodate mature students trying to balance work, family, and education.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

LUP has great faculty members that are great at teaching and also approachable. The only negative about this program was that they have enroll applications so sometimes classes are not available if they don't get enough students. Also more details about program in the beginning would be beneficial.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall the SAHE program is good. Graduates have the opportunity of two year Assistantships, and are required to do two practicum to graduate. This gives each student an abundance of practical experience. There are also opportunities for attending and presenting at conferences. The drawback is that assistantships may be at other institutions, so cohort connection and bonding is tough. Additionally, each professor has their own preferences for writing and assignments. I would recommend this program to students with the stipulation that they are prepared to work hard and learn a lot.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

Doctoral of Education, Curriculum & Instruction program is well organized, rigorous and current. University professors are top notch and truly care and support the students within the program. The cohort model is effective and allows for students to move through program in a timely fashion, with little down time, yet is extremely doable.

Degree: Executive MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

IUP is the greatest place to start your college life. The faculty are highly motivate instructors who give you real world experiences in the classroom. IUP was more affordable then going to a local 2-4 yr college or business school and has more to offer than my dream of going to college in Florida. IUP is a great place to be. It is a party school, but that doesn't mean you won't make friends if you don't party. You won't make friends if you're rude and unwilling to talk to new people. Plenty of people are willing to meet you, especially freshman because most of us are completely new. I met so many new people last semester and hangout with them every weekend. I partied occasionally, but most of the time I didn't. Even though I didn't party I could still hangout with them and just have a good time either way. Aside from the party atmosphere, the educational side is fine as long as you get the right professors. My first semester was kind of rough because I didn't carefully pick my professors, but this semester I went on ratemyprofessors and it was much easier to find a good professor for each class. This school has already helped me gain so much knowledge about who I am as a person and the world around me and I couldn't ask for anything more.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2016

Cons: It's a coin-flip between getting professors that will offer help when asked and those who won't. You will get a lot of homework (and not a lot of sleep)! If you're a Graduate Assistant sometimes you will be assigned an unreasonable amount of work for a faculty project. Pros: The program is small, so you will get to know everyone. By the time you graduate you will be proficient in all different types of mathematics software and programming languages.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

This specific program allows me to continue working full time while pursuing my masters degree. The director of the Health Services and Administration program has been a major resource for me as I learn to adapt as a graduate student.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

A lot of material covered with very knowledgeable and experienced professors.
