Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

The education department is full of friendly staff and teachers. Everyone is very knowledgeable, and willing to help you whenever you need, with whatever you need. Most of the time, I learned without even knowing I was learning...which is, in my opinion, really cool. The folks here truly want you to succeed, and will teach you everything you need to know to get where you want to be.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

I love the cost and flexibility of the program. The classes are 5 weeks long and intensive. The faculty and resources are very helpful. The con of this program is to get a steady mentor for the internship/practicum course. Since this is an education course that needs to be completed in a school setting, finding a mentor can be tough. Overall, its a good program.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

I really like working with Lamar University. It is an online program that is user-friendly. Professors and assistant professors are also very good in answering e-mails with questions. Readings, homework, group discussions, conferences are scheduled and very informative. Help is always available at all times. I have really enjoyed my journey studying online.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2104

I am a 57 year old graduate student. I am truly excited about the Educational Technology program. I use much of the information learned during the last four courses in my classroom and personal life. I am thankful for the opportunity to further my education online, as I work 40 hours per week.

Degree: Education

Since I am not a student on campus a lot of the above do not apply to me. I am enjoying my classes and don't have any complaints.

I am a full time teacher and a single mom taking my Masters in Education online through Lamar University. I love the program, the staff, and the connection I have with all the students on our Facebook page. It is a very easy program to take and it is very helpful in my field.

I love the fact that I can get my master's degree completely online while continuing to work on my career. I only wish that there were more scholarships available to graduate students.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

For a working professional, the ease of communication, registration and other necessary administrative tasks is outstanding. Instructions are clear and only pertinent information is asked of applicants and program participants. Email queries are promptly answered, and the phone calls from the Academic Partners staff during the application process and then prior to the start of classes help make the online program more personal. The structure of the online program (1 course each 5 week period) allows for concentration on the content and a pace that is manageable while also achieving degree completion in a reasonable time period.
