It was vital for me to get a job in my field. However, the cost of college is egregious and I will be paying for it well into my 30s.

A great school with professors sharing real world experience. Small class sizes leads to more personal interactions.

I feel that Nichols College's Graduate Program is provides a wonderful learning environment. The Graduate and Professional Studies Department is very helpful. I live in Montana and Nichols is in Massachusetts, so I often encounter some challenges since I am working on my degree online. I have had some professors that are excellent at communication, and some that are not. One aspect of distance learning that is important is constant communication with your professor; some professors at Nichols don't like to check their e-mail as frequently as they should, and as if my 2 hour time difference wasn't a problem, the lack of communication from some instructors can be. Nichols had a very supportive and helpful staff, but not all of their online instructors are as involved as they should be. I also attended Nichols on site for my undergraduate degree and the on site atmosphere is completely different. Professors work hard to help you and fins you answers even if they do not know them at first. All schools have pros and cons. Overall, I would say Nichols' Grad Program's positive is that they have an excellent support staff and their con is that some of their online instructors are not as involved in their classes as they should be.
