There are pros and cons of my graduate program. The pros are that classes are conveniently located to on campus housing. Another pro is that my academic advisor is has been very helpful so far with all questions and concerns I have had. Cons of my graduate program are the limitations of classes offered and the strict transfer credit allowance.

Degree: Business

The Marshall Leadership Studies program is great for working professionals. The faculties ability to support non-resident students is above reproach. Areas for improvement include the ability to access financial aid.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I received my bachelors degree in 2005. After spending several years working full time, I decided that I wanted a career change and decided to go back and get my masters degree in education. I really enjoy my program and the professors are very nice and easy to work with. Evening classes and online classes make it easier for me to continue to work full time and go to school.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate school program at Marshall University is very accessable and everyone there is helpful. The admissions process was easy to navigate and all faculty that I worked with were friendly. I am happy with the MBA program at the Lewis College of Business. Huntington, WV is a smaller city than what I would like to be in during this part of my education, but this place is where I have the most access right now. I am very satisfied overall with this graduate program.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Small school, so you really get to know everyone in the program and vice versa. Faculty are always accommodating, very accessible, and willing to put forth the effort to help you succeed. Good amount of opportunities to work in research. Small town. Cons: If you plan to work in research the classes offered are a little weak because they are geared largely toward preparation for med school. Small town, lots to do if you like the night life not so much if you don't. It can be expensive to live here.

The pros to this program is you can complete most of the course work online. The cons is you are communicating through the computer and not face to face.
