Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

he Counseling Education Program is very competitive and prepares you for the real world. The faculty consists of a small group of practicing professionals with a lot of field experience. The small unit allows for personal relationships and feels like a close nit family. It is a great feeling to have professors know you by name and check on you throughout the course of the program. The workload provides a mix of class work alongside hands-on activities to enforce the content. This helps students who may not have a learning style of just listening to lectures. I am extremely pleased that I selected Kean University as my school to pursue a Master's in Counseling. The only con for me is morning classes are not offered for those who have morning availability. Overall, the program is amazing and has an excellent reputation for preparing students for the career world.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

For most of my courses, I am taking them at a satellite location, on Ocean County College. I love this program! The professors are wonderful, very knowledgeable, and extremely helpful! The college offers weekend classes, which is perfect for me because I work full-time during the week. All of the courses I need are offered at this location (except for 4 courses because I want to add on to my degree and get my LPC qualification.) I highly recommend School Counseling Program at Kean University! One of the best decisions I have made for myself!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

Kean offers a great grad program for counseling. Very good professors who care and will work with you. The only con I can offer is that parking on campus is very limited.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Although tuition is relatively high, it is much more affordable than other graduate programs for the same field. In addition, the counseling programs at Kean are directed towards a specific field, or a general program which guides counselors towards their LPC; these options were not available at other graduate schools I researched in New Jersey.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are the uniqueness of the program and the location in relation to NYC. The only con is the lack of program variety at the Kean Ocean campus.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty is not only experienced but extremely helpful. It is such a comfort knowing that I can reach out to members of the faculty for assistance and receive a response in a timely manner. I do wish that their class times were more flexible for the more non-traditional student.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I graduated from Kean with my undergraduate degree in psychology and psychiatric rehabilitation with an affiliation to the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) before it became Rutgers University. The fact that I graduate from Kean in my home town is a big deal. I was offered a professional position within my field for a non-profit mental health facility before I even had my diploma in hand just because the recruiting officer new I came from Kean University. I continue to work within my agency and now wish to grow more within the clinical and administrative aspect. Kean University's graduate program not only holds a variety of options to specialize under my career but also offers a well-credited major that allows you to meet the requirements to sit for licensing and certification exams.
