Degree: Nursing

I wish the program was a FNP program, not Adult NP focused as it limits practice

Great program for those wanting to transition to teach! The fact that they have partnered with ITF to provide quality teachers for inner city students is amazing! This shows dedication to people over money. My hope is that I can represent the program in the most positive manner possible!

The pros of my ABSN graduate program are that it's fast-paced, great resources, and faculty are very knowledgeable. The cons would definitely have to be the cost of attendance.

I really like my graduate program. It is definitely a lot of work and very competitive so if anyone wants to attend this program they really have to be 100% convinced they want to be a doctor. Since it is a new program at the school every thing is new so they are lots of resources and top technology offered to the students. The professors are very approachable so they are alway welcoming students into their offices in order to receive help.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Flexible night program for students who work full-time, professors were accessible and knowledgeable, good networking opportunities for surrounding Indy community, challenging academically but not overly rigorous- manageable, variety of subjects covered Cons: Some classes/assignments felt like busy work, somewhat long commute from downtown, school itself does not offer much of a "social life" for graduate commuter students

They still have not changed the options on this site, but it should be noted that Marian has an Osteopathic not M.D. program.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The quality of Marian's Masters of Arts in Teaching program is what you make of it. As long as you put in the work and complete assignments, the professors are generally understanding of other commitments. Nearly all of my classmates, myself included, were working full-time while participating in this program, so it was actually beneficial to us that the workload was not too overwhelming. Professors were very knowledgeable about course material and were willing to meet outside of school hours for professional development as well as for assistance with classwork. Faculty was also very helpful in understanding the educational opportunities for teachers in Indianapolis. Still, at times the information and courses we were required to take felt contrived and it seemed as though there would be better ways to spend our time (i.e. I was required to take an ENL course though I never work with ENL students, and would have preferred to take another course about Special Education, as that is the population I worked with). Similarly, the courses I took felt somewhat unorganized and I never felt like I ended a class being able to give a comprehensive summary of what all I had learned over the semester, but rather an assortment of skills and ideas that were all somewhat disconnected from one another. Although the academic rigor is somewhat low, overall I had a very positive experience at Marian, especially as a student that only attended on the weekends at for night classes.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The fact that the online program exists and allows so many students to enroll each semester is wonderful enough. Because it is an online program there are students from all around the state that are enrolled, and just come to Indy for clinicals or exams. This program has given me so much and I can't wait to finish and get a job as a nurse!

Note: The program is a Doctorate of Osteopathy, not an M.D. program.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

It is a new program, but I already love it, I believe in time it will become known as one of the top osteopathic medical schools in the nation. The faculty and staff are amazing. Also, this is categoriezed under M.D. because for some reason there is no tab for Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) on the drop down list.
