Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

As a public school teacher, I was motivated to continue my education. As many of my colleagues had already received their Master's degrees, I was lucky to benefit from their experiences as I was selecting my school and program. It was important to me that my graduate degree would carry some weight -- I didn't merely want to participate in a graduate program that wouldn't elevate my skill set or qualifications. I also wanted the program I entered to be flexible and supportive of my life style; as a coach and teacher, my schedule was certainly something that I needed to consider as I committed to a program. So, I set out to find school that offered an accredited online program that was both relevant and interesting to my practice as an educator, but different enough to add some dimension to my resume. I decided to apply for an Educational Technology program, as I wanted to further explore how emerging technologies could further enhance the efficacy of my practice as a classroom teacher. NJCU came highly recommended to me from a very successful Educational Technologist who worked in my school district. In comparing the NJCU program with similar programs, I found that it was not only much more cost-effective, but also much more flexible than its competitors as it allowed candidates to complete a very manageable number of classes year-round at a rate and schedule that was completely up to the student. In addition, this program could additionally provide candidates with the necessary training to obtain a degree in Library Science, or a certification in Supervision and School Leadership. Ultimately, the cost, flexible nature, and versatility of this degree pushed my decision. I have fully enjoyed each and every course within this program, as the professors are incredibly knowledgeable about the content, have realistic and manageable expectations, and are incredibly understanding and supportive of their students. Many of the professors I have had continue to teach in K-12 classrooms, or work in a relevant industry that supports the implementation of technology to facilitate learning. Their experiences and contributions in the field of Educational Technology have been deeply insightful and inspiring to me in determining the future of my career, as I have been able to not only explore how my learning is relevant within my classroom, but could also potentially be applied in other fields. Our discussions are enriching and engaging, and I have developed relationships and been able to network with many of my classmates. Through participating in this program I have been able to develop as an educator, and observe other professions that I am now qualified to enter. Because of my positive experiences in this program, I became a full-time student and expedited my studies in order to pursue a career in the field of Educational Technology. I would full-heartedly recommend this program to anyone interested in continuing their education to broaden their professional horizons or diversify their skill set in order to enhance their career.

4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2011

I went to NJCU from 2008-2011 and I must say it was very interesting. Getting to all your classes was easy because the campus isn't that big and that made it easy getting to your classes without being late. The teachers are awesome and are always willing to help you when they are free. My advisor was always helpful and was always making sure that I was on top of things especially towards my senior year when it was time to graduate.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2011

I love New Jersey City University because the diversity on the campus allowed me to grow through learning about cultural differences and expanding on those new experiences and encounters. I now have the pleasure of studying School Counseling with a diverse, and professional staff.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I found the program to be interesting, and informative. Majority of the professors easily connect to the students, though some courses were difficult to understand but they tried their best to effectively teach the class. Some of the professors were instrumental in introducing their classes to 21st century office life.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

It is very expensive, but I am commuting so it is not so bad. I love the administrators they are always willing and able to help a student out. Professors are also extremely pleasant to deal with as well. If you have a problem they will do their best to correct it.

Flexible schedules, online learning, experienced professors.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel that my graduate program is one the best. The instructors or kind and very helpful. I do not regret my decision to be in the counseling program. My only issue is that I don't receive enough money to pay for my graduate career. It is a struggle, but I do the best I can to manage.
1.83 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a small class education where you can learn and interact with the faculty. However, there is still room of improvement on the quality of education, financial aid and student benefits.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

I like NJCU, but the staff is not very helpful when it comes to asking questions on what classes are necessary in order to have a 2nd career.
