Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The teachers are easily accessible, and they respond to emails promptly.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, the courses had an individualized component, were research-based, or were conducted in a transformational manner. The opportunities for personal growth were spectacular, but the workload was not overwhelming. I did not live on campus, so did not responded neutrally to the question about social life. This is a small town in rural New Hampshire, so transportation is an issue; I think there may be a daily bus that runs through to larger population centers. Many of the courses included international students in person or skyping-in. I highly recommend this program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The online graduate program varies greatly by professor. I am only on my second class and the experience was very different form one class to the next. My first class was extremely well-organized. The professor was accessible and helpful, expectations were clear, he used a combination of online (course connect) assignments and discussion. My second class, the professor is very disorganized, his "lecture notes" don't make sense, and there is no clear outline as to the direction of the class. Even the book listed for the class was a different edition than the one he uses. Hopefully the next class will be more like the first one!

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2012

I attended Plymouth State for my undergraduate degree in Education and plan to attend Granite State in January to work towards my Elementary Education Certification. I love Plymouth State and played on the Women's Basketball team while there. I loved my experience but at times did not feel I was being challenged as much as I could have.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: flexibility of schedule, constant email and/or phone access to professors, academically challenging Cons: campus is far away, difficult to work on group projects because students are from many different areas
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The counseling educator program here at PSU is constantly striving to make a better program. This program has a dedicated faculty that are working to expand the program, increase educational opportunities, and bring in new ideas. I personally a have not found many cons, but one potential con is the lack of diversity at PSU. We do study multicultural issues in our program, and I don't find it to be the fault of the program, but a little color or would be nice to see.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The campus is located in a beautiful setting, perfect for the skier, snowboarder, or hiker. Other than that there is not much to do. The program has been enlightening, what you get out of it depends on how much work you put in. Most classes are interesting and will be useful once I start my career.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

Participating in the EdD program at Plymouth State University has been a truly enriching and transformative experience. The doctoral faculty sincerely care about the students in the program and provide a substantial level of support and accessibility. The University has worked to provide scaffolding and structures for students to move into increasingly higher levels of scholarship and academic performance. Individual professors have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide social opportunities for individual cohorts and cross cohort exchanges. Faculty consistently seek out and match students with opportunities to conduct research in their fields or explore areas of student that may perk their interests in other areas. The program has opened me up to professional opportunities I never knew existed while provided a tremendous level of self fulfillment with all the challenging, yet enormously satisfying course work!

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

The Science Teaching MAT program at Plymouth State University is both challenging and rewarding. I feel that my courses are appropriately preparing me for a career in Education. I have had 30 required hours of observation this quarter and all of my essay assignments are being used for my Mahara portfolio. The teachers are there to help every step of the way!
