Student & Graduate Reviews

1.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

If you went to a rigorous undergraduate university, you may feel unchallenged in the PsyD program, with mostly multiple choice exams, and little narrative feedback. Busy work at times. Massive turnover, and professors with tenure are often lazy and prejudicial. The department chair has changed so many times in the past 5 years I cant even keep count. It lacks course offerings that prepare you for the most common clinical issues you will face (drug and alcohol), and the curriculum is solely centered on what the faculty like, rather than what would be beneficial to students. The program lost its charm years ago, and the university is dwindling so the PsyD program remains as their money-making machine. Do NOT go into debt for this program. Go to a shorter program elsewhere, or do anything else. There are a lot of regrets from a lot of people who went there. Do not be deceived by the statistics they post either- they are false and have lower Internship acceptance rates and program completion rates than they care to admit. Sure, Im glad I met some friends there, but other than that, I wish I hadnt gone into debt for such low quality education.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2010

Undergraduate studies here were pretty solid but graduate was a joke. I would not recommend for anything above a bachelor's degree.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2018

 The Masters MFA in Illustration program at Marywood University provides excellent opportunities to tour different cities in the US where students meet publishers, designers, illustrators, Creative/Artistic Directors, and their teams. This inside information is crucial to furthering our careers and individual work and many connections have been developed through these experiences. Additionally, the assignments completed in-between study tours and on-campus classes are challenging to both the design- and illustration-track students. They promote design thinking, out-of-the-box solutions, and creativity. The critiques are thorough and the peer and professional feedback are valuable.

Degree: MBA in International Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I first graduated from Marywood University in 2011 with my BA in Political Science/Law. After starting graduate school at a different institution, I didn't feel at home and soon returned to my alma mater to complete my MBA. Marywood is a place that welcomes you with open arms! The small class sizes allow for 1-on-1 attention that is crucial in a higher education atmosphere. At Marywood, you're never just a number. Faculty get to know you by name, so you're able to develop an excellent rapport with your teachers. Also, the professional staff are top notch and are always there to help. They recognize that college, even grad school, can be a tide of good waves and bad ones. Faculty and staff are there to help you navigate the sea of college and arrive at your final destination- graduation! I enjoyed my time at Marywood so much that I have decided to enroll once more and am now completing my PhD degree! Marywood has opened so many doors for me and it will certainly do the same for you!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

While the college was beautiful, there was not a great internship program or job placement program which would have helped. Great professor student ratios

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program is not as challenging as my undergraduate program - or perhaps I was just very well prepared. I feel as though I am getting and adequate education. However, the school is not accommodating to full time working professionals, although they advertise that they do accommodate such schedules. I do like the size of the campus and the location, as it is close to home. However, given what I know now about the program, I am not sure I would have made the same academic decisions.

Degree: Liberal Arts

Faculty are very accessible to students and are greatly involved in helping their students be successful.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I really enjoy my graduate program. The other students are really helpful and the professors are great.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The higher education program at Marywood includes intelligent faculty who desire only the best outcome for their students. One thing that I would change, however, are the number of courses that are offered. With courses being offered sparingly and some offered only every other semester, it makes it somewhat difficult to plan your graduation. However, I enjoyed my time at the college immensely and would suggest anyone to attend. The staff are great and each of them use their own unique teaching methods to really make students understand and appreaciate various aspects of Higher Education. They each value professional development experiences and encourage students to attend conferences and such.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The Higher Education Administration program at Marywood University allowed me to earn my degree with a case load of full-time courses while also keeping my job status as a full-time special education teacher.
