Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2009

Johnson State College has low enrollment and evening classes which is awesome in respect to getting more individual attention from professors. You get to know the professors as a person rather than a number. Evening and weekend classes allow for Graduate students to work full time or have family time. I had an amazing experience at Johnson State College and would recommend the School Counseling and Guidance program to any incoming Graduate student.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I received my M.A. in Education: Curriculum Studies from Johnson State. Under the Individual Strand program, I was allowed to construct my own pathway and focused my studies on the recursive and perpetual nature of problems using phenomenology and cybernetics. The program provided a foundational structure for educational theory and pedagogy, while the seminars allowed me to research and explore my specific areas of interest. The process was rigorous and exhausting, but never negative. The thesis committee was devoted to my success and their feedback was honest and insightful. Johnson is one of those places where you get out of it what you put into it. The professors hold vast stores of knowledge (in my case systems theory, phenomenological research and praxis, theory of mind, second-order cybernetics, educational philosophy) and are more than happy to share and guide grad students who are willing to step up to the challenge.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I greatly enjoy JSC, but I wish I had thought more about being a graduate student in a small town. There are not many jobs, and housing was hard to find. I was lucky enough to be able to grab an apartment on campus, but even with my loans paying off the rent, there is not money left for food, etc. Finding a job is hard here as well, as most of it is word of mouth. There is little to no public transportation, so if I had been an undergrad or did not have my car, I would be having twice the trouble finding a job as I do now. An upside is the quality of the professor-student interaction, as well as my interactions with the financial offices. They are all willing to answer questions and do their best with giving me information, however, they do not have much available for graduate students in the way of loans, scholarships or grants. If you have a learning disability, their program here is amazing as well. The director of the learning assistance program is a kind, open man who is willing to talk whenever you need. The learning center has a lot of options to help with whatever you need help with and are open to adjusting what they offer to fit your needs.
