Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I enjoy the Marist College masters program in school psychology. I find myself learning a large amount of information and, due to my previous experience in the schools, I know that this information will be useful to me in my future as a school psychologist. I find the content of the courses to be challenging but informative. The professors are working towards helping us become the best school psychologists possible. They emphasize that it isn't all about the grade, it's about what we learn and how we use that knowledge. This is a great program and I believe that I will graduate knowing all I will need to know to be a successful school psychologist.

This graduate program in Museum Studies is a collaboration between Marist College and Lorenzo de' Medici Institute in Florence, Italy. To get to study museums in a city like Florence is an incomparable experience. We are being taught by museum professionals who are currently or have been in this field. The behind-the-scenes knowledge we are gaining through these professionals, museum tours and lectures is like none other. We now have valuable connections through the networking opportunities of this program. I am grateful for the opportunity to have had this wonderful experience in an amazing place! I have no doubt that I will be able to pursue my dreams because of Marist College and Lorenzo de' Medici Institute!!

There are many pros in my graduate program such as most classes only consists of less than 30 students so interaction with the teacher is constant, unlike other schools who can have large lecture classes consisting of over 100 kids. Office hours of teachers are also really good, so if you need to meet your professor after class it is not that hard to schedule. There are not really any cons I can think of.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

The best part of this program is that it can be completed 100% online by a full-time working adult. I enjoy the freedom I have to complete my work while being employed full-time, but I find that this program has yet to challenge me. I am working in the industry of my studies simultaneously and I find myself learning much more from my work environment than from my Marist Masters program.

The faculty was very accommodating and I enjoy the program but I would have like an on-ground option rather than all online classes.

I find that Marist's online program is very comprehensive and the faculty always make the effort to be available to answer questions. The courses are student driven which facilities a lot of virtual interaction between the students, despite not being in a classroom setting. After getting accepted to Marist's MBA program I was met with a lot comments about how well received and competitive their program is in the online arena. This made me even more confident in my decision to become an online graduate student.

While the main campus is located in Poughkeepsie, New York I am receiving my Master's of Arts in Museum Studies at the Marist Italy Branch in Florence, Italy. This program is relatively new and certainly has growing pains. This one year accelerated master's program includes a thesis and an internship. The pros of this program include the opportunity to be taught by museum professionals in museum settings (i.e. running a museum exhibition) and the fact that a thesis and internship can be written about anything museum related and completed anywhere in the world. Plus, being taught in some of the greatest museums in the world, in a beautiful country.The cons include getting used to the Italian educational system and the ever changing schedule that comes with working with museum professionals.

Degree: Marketing

The slate of courses, and the work the faculty puts in to helping students, is incredibly helpful. It's definitely quite a lot of work, but I can already tell that it's going to be definitely worth it.

The pros are that they program is taught by very good professors and has a very good curriculum. The cons are that you don't get to know the other students.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

This was a great program for a working professional. I was able to complete my MPA while working full time and having a family. Marist has really put a lot of thought into it's distance learning programs and I was challenged throughout.
