Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Faculty are knowledgable but not always available. Very focused on theory and research, so if that's what you're interested in (which I am) then this is a good fit.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

I have real;ly enjoyed most of my instruction at the graduate level. Currently, I have an instructor who is inaccessible for questions which is very frustrating. I have left emails and even called her cell, but she did not respond. She did answer when I called her office directly, but she has not answered questions from the past. All in all, the courses I have taken thus far have been most informative and fulfilling

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

Most of my classes have been closer to my house, in the Hampton campus, because I registered for the "distance learning" program. This is really convenient for me, and saves me a lot of money. I have had to go to Norfolk at least one night a week for the past year, which is challenging for me because of my work schedule. My professors have been very helpful, and are always knowledgeable.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2013

This is a truly one of the best nationwide Universities. In any department, especially in Physics, there are top notch scholars of the field. Aside from the city of Norfolk quality, everything is excellent at this University. Highly recommended!

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2010

I took classes on campus and as a distance learning student. I began my graduate study in Elementary Ed. but got a provisional license in SPED. Even though I was 3/4 of the way through the Elem. Master's degree, they made me switch programs and basically start over. Other than that, my program was sufficient to get me where I wanted to be.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Old Dominion University offers a very diverse faculty with a variety of technical backgrounds. The schools primary con is its lack of funding for research students and the lack of current technology.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2013

Although this graduate program really does prepare you to run and manage your own classroom there is a lot of work involved in getting there. There are a lot of unpaid internship hours to get your teaching license. For those with full time jobs or children it will be a difficult but not impossible task.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

This graduate program is very versatile; as full time student, who has three jobs, I am able to find classes at the Peninsula campus, which is much closer to my home. The only downside I can think of is the availability of courses has been an issue for me: classes I need to take, are not always available the semester I need to take them.
