I feel that sometimes the Maters of Nursing program is a little unorganized but a good value and competitive.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

A pro is the ability to work closely with professionals who have made major accomplishments in your field. A con is having to leave such a beautiful environment when you graduate.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

Ohio University was incredibly helpful with financial aid, which was a huge part of my ability to attend graduate school. I was offered a graduate teaching assistantship, which allowed me to create meaningful relationships with my professors as well as other grad students and under graduate students. I felt like I made a meaningful contribution to the experience and education of other students at OU, and that helped motivate me to do my best. My graduate program, Recreation and Sports Science, was more theoretical than I expected. Coming from a 'hands-on' education undergraduate degree, I was expecting more projects, activities, and outdoor pursuits. Despite my initial confusion with the graduate material, I was very satisfied with the theoretical background material that we covered in my time in the program. Mixing the graduate material with the 'hands on' classes that I taught as a graduate student teacher, I had the perfect mix of field classes and research. The only major con to the entire program, from my perspective, was the availability of my advisor/professors. They were all so focused on obtaining tenure, that they did not have much time to meet with students outside of class, or provide timely feedback on reports or projects. Regardless of that, I had an incredibly valuable experience and education at OU, and I would not trade those two years at OU for any other program.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program allows me the opportunity to get my masters and still be able to work full time. I can access my courses from anywhere that provdes internet access and I have the flexibility to work on my classes whenever I can. The cons of this program may be not having visual learning capabilities and it being more of a teach yourself method.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Online courses were not good. There was no real sense of direction as to where the course was going and how it related to some of the reading required for class and the relation from the reading to the tests made it confusing. Better off not reading and guessing on the tests.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The Coaching Education program allows me to combine working and studying for my masters degree without over stressing my day to day schedule.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently enrolled in the Masters in Healthcare Administration program at Ohio University. My experience thus far has been exceptional. Their program advisors are genuinely concerned with their students success. I received calls every term checking in to see if I had any concerns regarding my classes and updating me on my progress toward achieving my degree. The instructors for the program have real world experience that added depth and examples helping me to draw a close understanding of the subject. I only wish my undergraduate educational experience was as note worthy as my graduate studies.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

This graduate program has very supportive faculty, however there are few existing programs to support diverse students.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm currently enrolled in a "blended" graduate program at Ohio University. Most of my interaction with fellow students, professors and advisors is electronically based, but we also interact in person. This particular program is just what I had been looking for when researching various communication programs. Ohio University is committed to their long-standing traditions and educational excellence. I'm so happy with my choice of program and university.
