Student & Graduate Reviews

4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2010

I went to Messiah for my undergrad and now I am applying for their graduate program. I loved their small class sizes and the one on one instruction you get with their professors. My professors actually cared about me as a person, me as a student and me as an educator. I wouldn't change a thing.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The Master of Arts in Higher Education program at Messiah College is a hybrid program that offers convenience to working adults with primarily online courses while fostering connections among students through intensive on-campus sessions during the summer. The faculty are highly accessible and offer guidance and support based on their real-life experiences as higher education administrators and professors. One shortcoming of the program is a lack of consistency from course to course in delivery and expectations. This is likely due to the fact that this program has been in existence for less than three years.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

My experience so far at this institution has been excellent. The professors in my areas of study are very knowledgable with lots of real world experience. They also make it a point to get to know the students on a personal level. The financial aid office has also been very supportive and works with me individually to help with any problems I may have.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall Messiah has a lot of flexibility for graduate students. You are able to take most of the classes online, which is great for students who are also working part/full time. Professors work with you to create a plan to complete your degree in a time frame that works for you.

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

Messiah College's Graduate Program in Marriage and Family Therapy is exceptional. The program pros are the that the faculty are truly invested in student success, the course work is challenging, but not overwhelming, and the student body is overall supportive of one another. The con is that the during the intensive weeks in which the student needs to remain on campus, there is limited transportation to obtain needed items.
