Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

Kutztown University's Clinical Mental Health Counseling program has helped me advance in the field and I have had some really great professors. With any school, it is obvious which professors are passionate about teaching and there for students, while others are not as dedicated. The program seems to be in transition with faculty members which should help with miscommunication and disorganization between faculty and students. I am in my second year and I have already been published, have presented at conferences, and continue to work on research. You do have to advocate for yourself and find a mentor within the department, or else you may get lost in the shuffle.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The teaching method, the technology, access to internet and equipped library. My professors are approachable and you can ask questions. It is not like this from my country. We do not have all these technologies they have in the United States and good libraries like the one here. That makes study easier and enjoyable. The environment is welcoming and relaxing. Also we are few in my class. That makes it much easier to for the professor to get to know each student individually.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012

The professors that have instructed me were fantastic in the science department at Kutztown. I have had many issues with financial aid and also I do not believe the other departments run as smoothly as the science department.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I feel like the Professors are very intelligent and know what they're talking about. They make the material easy for you to understand yet difficult enough to give you a challenge. Most of the professors get back to you right away if you have any problems, but some take half the semester to post any grades or they will take a week or two to even email you back which is unacceptable.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Kutztown has an amazing faculty that are engaging and create a classroom culture cohesive to learning and engagement. I would never consider another school after attending classes here. Cons: Financial aid is challenging to find for graduate school as well as grants for these programs. They require a commitment to work for a low income school district for a number of years, which is almost the only option for educators at this time. However, I want to teach at the college level.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate Elementary Education program at Kutztown is accelerated and affordable. In one year, you can complete your teacher's certification and obtain a master's degree. This track is for students interested in education who have no previous education coursework. Kutztown is affordable and offers a great education for anyone interested in becoming a teacher.
