Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Oakland University offers a competitively priced Post-Master's Graduate Certificate program that is supported by knowledgeable and committed advisors. The PMGC in Higher Education is a sought-after program that isn't offered at many educational institutions. I feel fortunate that I have the opportunity to pursue this certificate at a highly accredited, affordable, conveniently located and safe environment.

I feel like I am getting the best education possible at Oakland. The professors are dedicated to creating a successful learning environment and providing students with the skills they will need in their area of study. I feel like Oakland is the best for Graduate study and my teaching career, I would never think about going anywhere else!

Graduation Year: 2008

Pros: The ability to work with the faculty and have plenty of guidance from them and fellow students. A new lab, providing adequate space, and newer technologies are also positive. Well rounded, students must complete internships, and a thesis or cumulative test are necessary in order to receive the masters. All of the classes are in the evening during the fall and winter, which is good for working students, parents. Cons: As with all graduate programs, the cost in an issue. OU has been steadily increasing tuition since I was there during my undergraduate program.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

As a graduate student at Oakland University, I feel that they go above and beyond for the education of their students. The program offers both hands on and in class education and each of the professors I have met are empathetic to their students busy work schedules and family lives. They are willing to work with their students, without compromising the course work and objectives. To be honest, I would be hard pressed to reveal any negative thoughts about the program because I am genuinely pleased with the program. Although, I would say that it would be nice to have more gatherings for the students to meet and discuss the program.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program is diverse, with students entering the program from all over the United States and other countries. I feel the faculty is diverse in their educational and career backgrounds. However, living on campus is fairly expensive and the student body is not very social because the campus is mostly commuters and older students.

Oakland University's partnership with William Beaumont Hospital provides great networking opportunities. Student diversity lags behind the country's larger diverse population. Faculty and staff are responsive and receptive to feedback and conversation. Overall, a high-quality program.
