Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The main pro that I like about my program is the speed at which the programs is going. I will be finished in 18 months with my Masters Degree of School Counseling. I also like that I am able to take one class at a time and focus on just that one. The price for the course if very reasonable compared to my online bachelor's degree course. The cons are some of the pros. By having online courses that are accelerated, there is a lot of work, reading, projects, assignments, etc. all the time. It is hard to find any down time with working full-time as well.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2016

The Graduate Program at Lamar University challenges young academics in many facets. From new and upcoming research and methods, challenging courses to difficult academic standards and very high expectations, the History Departments continues to grow and nurture upcoming scholars into the world of academia. Considered pros for the graduate program are the well-educated and inviting members on staff, small class sizes made for one on one development, and the high standards each student is required and expected to make. Cons considered for the program is the lack of funding for both students and research grants for faculty.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

For many, online education is the only option for earning a higher degree. Despite what some might think, online classes are NOT easy. They are time consuming and encompassing, requiring a high level of motivation and self-discipline. Lamar University offers a competitive degree program in Student Counseling that has proven challenging as well as informative. I would highly recommend this option for people who need flexible scheduling.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

This is an all online program so I cannot accurately attest to the social life and surrounding area, but found the courses to be challenging without completely overwhelming. Of course it take a certain fortitude for juggling work, school, and family and it's been by no means a walk in the park. It takes commitment and dedication.

The pros consist of accessible faculty and helpful staff. The cons consist of campus safety, lack of transportation for undergraduates as well as little to no social entertainment/lounges for students.
