There's been a lot of turnover the past few years in the program which has caused some disruptions, but the faculty knows what they're doing and is seeking to make it a good experience for the students.

Professors and faculty seem very helpful and reply to emails/phone calls quickly. Classes are taken individually for 7 1/2 weeks for this program.

One of the biggest pros of the graduate program is the flexibility for working professionals,like the weekend MBA program.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Professors are readily available always, never had a professor who was too busy to talk about any situation. Very friendly atmosphere, just overpriced for the experience. The Finical Aid office is awful to get a hold of, and the network issues as of recently have been off the walls. Beautiful campus, great library however. Main issue of the campus is the parking is absurd, even if you have a parking pass. Also, the trains do not run on the weekends, which limits your transportation if you live on campus or if you need to be there on the weekend.

Pros: - Professors are accessible and eager to assist - Classes are oriented towards career skills Cons: - Not as rigorous as other computer science programs

Dedicated faculty, program administrator and adviser. Classes were informative and course materials were reasonable with regard to cost.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2015

Montclair State University is one of the few schools in the tri-state area that offers a graduate program within the field of nutrition education. The program is well-rounded with courses such as social marketing and behavioral health counseling that prepare students to help others transform their lives through healthy eating, exercise and positive lifestyle changes. The professors are easily accessible and very supportive and most are fantastic teachers! The program could use a few more hard science classes with some public health courses since these fields intersect. Overall, my educational experiences at Montclair State University have been nothing but positive.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that the amount of graduate classes offered are very limited. the times and days the classes are offered are minimal. it is hard to schedule work and classes when the only class times available are from 5:30pm-8pm. I would benefit more from having more options available throughout the day. other than the classes offered, the program is put together very nicely. the professors are eager to teach and help the students learn. the workload is distributed evenly.
