Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2016

I love my program. It is fully online so that I can have the flexibility of working and pursuing my studies. The lectures are live and then available recorded and the "Blackboard" system is condusive for interacting with my peers and Professors.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The online experience at the university is par excellence! I will be finishing my graduate degree in under 2 years because of the accelerated program. The learning experience has been such a positive and enriching one that I almost regret having to graduate so soon. Although I don't think that there is an online Ph.D program in my field, if there were, I would seek it from Northeastern. It's a top knotch university and I will certainly be a proud alumni and support the school in any way I can.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

The graduate program at Northeastern University (College of Professional Studies) for a Criminal Justice Science Master's Degree in Leadership is well designed for law enforcement officials who are already in the field! It allows you to be competitive amongst your peers at work, and expand your field of study. Not only in criminal justice but also develop your leadership capabilities for a law enforcement executive position. Most of the instructors provide first hand insight, and experience about the criminal justice field or about leadership skills. The program is very flexible making full-time work, and the balancing of academic curriculums manageable. It appears to be design for non traditional students who are working folks. It provide both online continuing education option class option, and physical in-class course option. The unfortunate part of the program is its tuition cost. This program does allow you to network with your peers, and distinguish your career credentials from typical criminal justice programs.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The quality is without flaw, however the courseload is very intense and one must be prepared in order to succeed. The critical international inclusion is also extremely beneficial in our modern global society and prepares us for our future after graduation.

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

Northeastern University provides an ideal program for working adults returning to school. The hybrid site/online process aids students with this transition.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

Northeastern is definitely a great school to attend. It has expended its program offerings and has become an increasingly respected institution of Higher Learning. It is also a leader in academic innovation and accessibility. The greatest pros for my graduate program is that it was made available to me without requiring any relocation and job loss. The flexibility of the program allowed me to earn my degree while carrying on my family and other duties. With the exception that it can be challenging at times to establish networks by "meeting" exclusively online (which our regional campus in Charlotte, NC addressed by planning frequent meet-and-greet event), the learning experience was great, and personally and professionally enriching.
