Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Although I haven't began the program yet. I would say that the pros of the masters/cags program for school psychology would be the supportive faculty and tight knit cohort. Hearing from other students made me see how much the faculty truly wants every student to succeed. The faculty also seems to care about the needs of the students and help them in every way that they can. Since I do not begin my program until the fall, I cannot say what the cons of the program are yet.

I am currently pursuing a LLM. After years of being out of school, Northeastern University called my attention for their concentrations.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The Northeastern University M.Ed. Higher Education Administration program has taken a very personal approach to me as a student and the courses are spread across a wide variety of disciplines in higher education, leaving students with a holistic understanding of the field. The online part can be tough at times, balancing the rigors of a full-time job that requires extensive travel, but certainly forces you to learn effective time management. I do wish there were more options for financial aid aside from loans. There are only a handful of scholarship options to choose from as an online graduate student, which can sometimes present a big financial burden as there are no GA spots available for online students. With that being said, the cost vs. the reputation of the school is one of the better values I've seen for graduate programs in this field -- and this one is set up where you can graduate in just one year if you'd like. All in all, I think it's a great program for anyone wanting to advance in higher education.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The Northeastern College of Professional Studies Sports Leadership Program is a unique program that offers blended coursework. Programs are offered on campus and online so that students can attend full time or part time depending on best fit. Classes can be taken at the Boston MA or Charlotte NC campuses or strictly through online courses. The core courses offer development in management techniques and leadership skills as well as education in social media trends, sports law and many other issues that affect the sports / fitness industry. Elective courses can be tailored to each student's interest including facilities management, event management and can encompass academic advising for those working in college athletics just to mention a few. Courses are graduate level and are challenging but manageable. They are also interactive and most utilize group and individual work as well as class room discussions and debate. The program is unique and is a great way to advance / begin a career in sports.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2017

An online grad program is great, especially while being employed full-time. I can manage the course load pretty well, but of course there are times when the internet is down or you can't reach your professor, and of course I wish I could have that social interaction piece that I am missing with online education. However I must say it is affordable, manageable, and easy to complete.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

A lot of the ratings I just gave a mid-range score since I attend online and many of the criteria don't apply to me. The workload is quite a bit but I feel like I'm getting a good education. I wish there were more efforts from the school to reach out to online students.

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Great school for working professionals and those returning to school with prior work experience. Cons: Not a whole lot of financial aid and I feel like I was put in a unique situation that made it more difficult to get my bearings about me in the grad school program.

I love my program. The faculty are extremely supportive. The courses are interesting. The only unfortunate part about being in an online program is that there is little scholarship money available.
