Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I just completed the two year clinical psychology program. While the course load was difficult when combined with a near full time job and the optional thesis it was well worth it. Even though I have graduated I still meet with my advisor who has become an invaluable supporter as I transition to my next degree. The faculty in the Clinical Psychology program are always willing to answer questions and provide guidance as their students take the next steps in their career or education. Overall a great program and a great option if you are thinking of pursueing your doctorate but don't feel ready yet.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Rivier University supports every student's dreams and helps educate everyone towards their future goals. They help find paid internships for most of their students which is great for anyone that can't work full time due to school. The workload can sometimes be overwhelming. Depending on the area of study, the professors sometimes go overboard with their assignments. On the positive side, this prepares you to be more organized and used to stressful environments that might ease your transition in a work place.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I am going into my second year of my M.S. Clinical Psychology program and so far have no real complaints. The work load is heavy, but not more than what would be expected at a level this high in my education. The Professors are excellent teachers, as well as compassionate & understanding to the needs of all their students. I feel I have learned more in depth knowledge about psychology in the past year than I did in my four years as an undergrad. The only Con I would say is, again, that the work load is heavy, but with school being more of a passion, than a necessity, I find it all to be entirely worth it.
