Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The graduate program I am enrolled in is a Masters of Science in Human Service and Leadership with a concentration in Leadership. The program is online with six week courses. I find the online option to work well with my full time career. The plus is that you can complete work from home when at the time that works best for you. The cons are that you are expected to self teach on a lot of different topics and you don't have that face to face interaction. The one thing I feel is that online programs do require a lot more research papers in a short time period.

I am participating in an online masters program and attend the university remotely. The setup they have for their online courses is outstanding, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to go to school while they are working.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

Has a great network with local and global companies for co-op opportunities. Extremely helpful faculty and availability is always there. Needs more courses in several of it's concentrated Engineering department. The graduate co-op program is small but I believe it will grow and become better for future grad students in the near future.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Good school with good people, but not highly diverse in terms of walks of life. Also, if you are part time and work for a living while attending classes be prepared to be brushed aside for most of what the school has to offer. They don't provide scholarships for part time students, nor do they provide career placement opportunities as well as they do for full time MBA students. Other than that they are a good school, but REALLY expensive.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

Northeastern University School of Continuing Professional Education has provided me with the flexibility to earn my graduate degree while working in the field of communications as a seasoned professional. I have been able to study with a myriad of students from all types of backgrounds on a global scale. Beyond the study of communications I have learned business negotiations, digital media, cultural organization management, and leadership skills. The professors are outstanding and I have certainly gained extensive insight on a multitude of topics in communications that will assist in my goal to profess as well. Thank you! Leah Luddine

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

There are several excellent professors in my department, which will be helpful for my future study. Moreover, it is convenient to take a class in MIT or Harvard. I like the university mainly because of these professors!

The program should offer more courses. Also, the department website looks outdated compared to other area schools.
