Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Convenient classes for working adults. Payment and enrollment schedule is strange and not traditional.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: - Incorporates a lot of technology - Professors are understanding and genuinely care about their students' success - Small class size ensures quality pedagogy - Significant alumni grant for SJC undergrad alumni - Flexible for a full-time worker's schedule Cons: - Relatively new program; some unnecessary repetition of basic concepts (i.e. "what is literacy?") - Workload is a bit difficult to balance with a full-time teaching position (several students enrolled in this program teach full-time)

I thought that I got a better education when I was in Stony Brook for my undergraduate degree. I was surprised because St. Joseph's is known as the "teacher's college." I am about halfway through my program and I am so far unimpressed. I feel like they just make cookie cutter teachers. Everyone has the same 4 certifications with no diversity. There is also limited technology. They have a very limited amount of SMARTBoards on campus. Most teachers present their information via powerpoints. If I created powerpoint lessons for my students during an observation I would get a zero. The teachers should be modeling best teaching practices.

Degree: Early Childhood Education

I feel like I had learned more in my undergraduate studies at Stony Brook. If I had to choose again, I don't know that I would have chosen St. Joseph's for my Master's Degree.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I have not taken many classes in my program yet, but the ones that I have taken have left me wanting more. My professor wanted us to watch movies more than I liked. The class topic are something that I like and look forward to taking. St. Jospeh's College is known for being a teaching college and some of the actions of the professors shocked me. They were doing some of the things that they have told us never to do in a classroom; I understand that the college setting is different, but I did not like it. A pro of the college is that it is small, so it is very easy to meet with all the different departments if you needed to. I hope that the rest of the classes that I take at this school get better. I feel like I worked a lot harder to get my undergraduate degree than what I am for my graduate one.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am happy with my graduate program. I thought that the professors are people who can prepare you for real-life experiences in the education field. You know that they themselves have been in the field and it validates what you are doing. The professors are available for questions and clarifications. My classes always had very interesting discussions about the materials. One con I would say is the cost; not necessarily singling out this school. All grad school programs are very costly.
