The online program works well with my busy schedule as a full time teacher and mother of three. The workload is not to much and the assignments have been useful.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program at Oakland University has several pros. Those include the accessibility to staff, the availability of online courses, and a great website to access to library databases. A con, as with most schools, in the cost of the program.

I think this particular graduate program is setting students up for success by being ahead of the curve. The faculty is extremely knowledgable and willing to provide extra help. I have thoroughly enjoyed my learning experience thus far.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

The graduate program is extremely progressive in that we are one of the first graduating classes, and we have a strong influence on the courses we take and our future predecessors. For instance, our senators and feedback are used to modify units we are currently taking. In addition, there is a strong community because the school emphasizes factors like attendance and exercises where we work as a team.

The best part of this graduate program is the extra support you get from both the professors and program directors. They want you to succeed, and are willing to listen to the concerns of our cohort.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is really going to help me pursue my career in health. I am already a nursing assistant at a hospital and will love to continue what I love doing. I need to be able to continue my education and would love to have the financial support.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is amazing, though some of the other school departments make life on campus a bit difficult.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the pros of graduate school is that it prepares you more for the career life. It enhance your creativity, and helps you balance work and school life. The cons of graduate school is that if you are not ready for it please do not attend.
