Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the graduate program of public administration is that people get the knowledge of how policies come together to help make something run more efficiently. The con of the graduate program is that with the public administration, it is better to have some years of experience in the field of public service to help with promotion.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: convenience of online school. Can do your course work when you have time. Cons: Financial Aid does not get dispersed until midway through semester, so you are forced to buy new books through the University if using fin aid.

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is challenging which encourages me to work hard. I love how it is all online because it allows me to hold a job while I work towards a masters degree. The professors respond very quickly to emails and they are willing to work with students when problems arise. It has been a great experience thus far!The only con would be that no grants or scholarships are available to graduate students at this school.
