Fantastic program and faculty, but the expenses of a private school education are daunting.

I think the top pros are the faculty themselves. Each and every faculty member is fully accredited in their field and always have an open door for their students. The only cons I have are the campus is a little bit of drive in Atlanta for me, but I do not have a choice otherwise but to commute.

Mercer's CMH program returns what you put into it. If you do not get active and involved within the program, you might not see very much benefit. If you do get involved, however, you will be amazed at the amount these professors will invest into you. Academically, the program is hit or miss when it comes to the challenge/stimulation of the classes. I've had classes in which I have not had to do very much, and did not feel as if I deserved an "A." I've also had classes in which I felt I worked extremely hard for my "A." I'd prefer more consistency, but, like I said before, I've found other ways to stimulate my academic thirst. Would recommend/have recommended this program to others.

The grad programs are catered to the working adult and the program is sufficiently rigorous. The faculty is very competent and possesses a lot of field experience from their everyday involvement. The student body as a whole and the program contains a lot if of diversity. The cons include the tuition and traffic. Mercer is a private university so it is very expensive. While commuting to the campus I’m often faced with tremendous traffic.

At the moment I do not have any cons about this school or program. The course load is fair and the professors are excellent. The campus, while small, is very diverse. I am more than satisfied with my program and school.

I am a new enrollee so I will say, as a disclaimer, that my experience with Mercer University-Atlanta Campus is limited. However, I recognize that there is a great emphasis on course rigor and professional,development. I enjoy the accessibility to Faculty and Staff and the eager responsiveness. Financial aid is provide through federal loans, and outside scholarships are accepted. However, the program currently does not provide internal scholarships for graduate student (with the exception of a partial scholarship for study). On- campus apartment is beautiful, but is also a little pricey. The city's primary bus service, MARTA, runs infrequently in front of the campus , however, there is almost never an issue with parking. Overall, the good definitely outweighs the drawbacks and there are many opportunities for career and social development through the many student organizations on campus.

Mercer's Clinical Mental Health program has allowed me to continue to work while receiving my education. The staff has opened my eyes to many valuable tools that are waiting inside of me and I cannot wait to use them once in the field.

I love that my program is so experiential and convenient. I'm learning more because I'm not just being fed information from a book, but practicing and having meaningful discussions that force me to grow as a person. Even though the campus on which my program is available is an hour away, each class meets for a longer period of time one per week. That makes the program convenient for me, given that I work full-time.
