Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2011

Professors are passionate and each takes a unique approach to the task. However, while the education was a positive experience nothing was done in terms of career support or advisement. No college credit is given for internships anywhere, with any organization, and it seemed like they were trying to phase out the program when I was there

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

The program is enexpensive for the degree you receive. However, be aware that one cannot do much with a master's degree in Psychology. It is simply a stepping stone to a doctoral program. If you are interesting in finishing school with a master's degree, I suggest you enroll in a program that sets you up to meet the requirements for licensure.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

The staff is brilliant but if you want to get the most of your education you have to not only challenge yourself but partner with people who are as dedicated, focused and brilliant than you are. Try to stay away from people who are there to get a better paying job to pay for the wedding of their dreams unless you are that type of person as well. Just being honest.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2014

It is a small program and most students are educators returning to earn extra money to increase on the pay scale.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

The Speech-Language Pathology Graduate Program at Kean University is one of the best in New Jersey. With an on-sight clinic and active professors, this program has proven that it will provide me with the most up to date information in the field. I am fully confident that I will be pushed to my fullest potential in all my classes and clinic visits and become a great speech-language pathologist because of it. The only downfall to the program, and every program like it, is the highly competitive admission process. However hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed at this University. It is the reason I am able to receive an amazing and life changing education.

The faculty is great! Passionate, interested, and always there for students. The cons are that there is some disorganization at times.
