Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I am going into the second year of the MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. There are a few positive attributes for me. First, I am local to the university and it is my alma mater for my undergraduate degree in psychology. Next, the use of technology is phenomenal. We use Black Board Collaborate for small online meetings and the sometimes teachers record lectures for us to view, which I feel exceeds the norm for online education. Additionally, the program is designed to prepare students for the state licensing exam. One downfall is that we are the first group of students to participate in the program therefore we run into some snags along the way. In addition to that, being that it is in the development stage, it is not yet CACREP accredited until the first class of students graduate.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The program of Clinical Mental Health Counseling is new. I am the first class to be taking these courses. I feel that the program was too rushed and the faculty should have perhaps waited another year to start the program. The amount of faculty available to answer questions is not enough as it should be. The program seems very unorganized. I am hoping that within the next year things will run a little bit more smoothly and I will be able to receive the support that I need.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling is a brand new program being offered by Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, my undergraduate alma mater. It is completely an online program. I have tried a few other online programs, but was very excited to switch to LHU's program. One thing that stands out to me is that the instructors post lecture videos and provide a lot of external resources, which is something that I did not encounter with other programs. The program also offers technology for online meetings with peers and instructors through Black Board Collaborate which has never been offered in the other programs I tried. I think it gives that extra feeling of community and support. In addition, there are various ways to earn your grades such as quizzes, finals, and papers. Other programs were typically very, very writing intensive without other means of earning your grades and I think that this can lead to burnout rather quickly. This program is also geared toward and provides information to prepare for the licensing exam to become a licensed counselor. The biggest con for me is that it is a completely brand new program as we are the very first group of students to go through the program and will be the first graduates of it so there is still a bit of trial and error. That being said, I am very pleased with the education I am receiving thus far. It is thorough and challenging and I look forward to completing the program.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

There are four campuses and since it is a state school it is cheaper than most other Physician Assistant programs
