Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a great program for working people. I completed it online but had access to the school library and other resources. The classes are short (most 4 weeks, the last few were 8 weeks), which I liked but could be hard to get everything done. I really like that hey have live lectures so you can talk to your instructor and ask questions in real time.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

National University presents a wonderful opportunity to students, undergraduate or graduate level, to begin or finish their degree conveniently online. The average age of National's student population is thirty-five years old. Majority of programs are offered online, some are specifically onsite only and a good handful can be found in a hybrid or cohort option. With programs spanning over five different schools prospective students are sure to find a program that fits their needs. Professors are proficient in their appropriate fields and provide wonderful feedback and real world examples to current curriculum. Advisors are readily available by phone, email or at a campus location near you. National is a private non-profit university and offers a wonderful inclusive atmosphere. The professors I have had in my onsite as well as online classes have been extremely helpful and informative, not only about the topic being covered but about real world experience and situations one might encounter. I have thoroughly enjoyed my program thus far and would recommend it to others.

National University is a great option. The online program fits well for a working student. The teachers that I have encountered a world class educators. They really know there stuff. I have been provided with a solid foundation in the area of Educational Technology. We spent a good deal of time using technology that I can use in my future, and not just writing papers.

The faculty at NU really care about the students. They are available during evenings and weekends to help online students with their classes. The course work is relevant to current jobs that employers are looking for. The students attending the classes are career focused and like-minded.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Sustainability is a new buzzword for good reason. It is good for business, the environment, and society. National University offers a Masters of Science in Sustainability Management which I highly recommend if you want to step out of the norm and actually make a difference, affect change, and provide value to any company. In this program you will study: Energy Management, Watershed Management, Sustainable Supply Chains, Sustainable Buildings, Environmental Management, and Life Cycle Management. I thoroughly enjoyed this program and the professors, and recommend the program at National University in San Diego.

National University offers a convenient way to earn a degree. The year-round online MBA program was the ideal situation for me because I could fit it into my busy schedule and complete the degree as quickly as possible. The faculty was exceptional and the students were engaged. I have developed many relationships throughout the program that could potentially be resources as I move ahead in my career.
