Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2017

First year student, so my experiences are limited. Thus far, Simmons is an academically sound institution. The professors are very knowledgeable of their content area and seem genuinely invested in student development.

Great faculty. My financial aid covered all of the cost of my nursing graduate program. My academic adviser is amazing. Everyone is very attentive and courteous.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

With it being a small school, there are dedicated faculty who are willing to work towards your success. The student to teacher ratio is ideal for a graduate program. The surrounding Greater Boston area is the perfect backdrop for internship opportunities and learning about the culture and society of the world. The cons of the program are the workload and scheduling with required internships to gain clinical hours.

Simmons FNP program is great for working full time nurses. It's a lot of work but very manageable. The work is hard but like I said very manageable.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

This is an online program for an MSW degree. It is very thorough and the instructors are very knowledgeable. They always having us thinking critically and outside of the box. This is not an easy online program. It is very professional and compares well to traditional learning compared to online.

Pros: High quality education, well-organized, and excellent support for students. Cons: Very expensive and financial aid is limited.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program has been a perfect way for me to work full time and persue my Health Care MBA. The program is taught by health professionals who have had a full career in either health law, health care technology and health care finance. Their expertise make this program worth every penny and makes it an exciting program to be apart of.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall Simmons has a great atmosphere, diversity of peers and students in a variety of programs and excellent connections for networking and advice for careers. I have had mixed experiences in the eduction program where classes are either excellent or lacking engagement. My Reading courses have been amazing, wonderfully challenging and engaging. I acquired thorough knowledge in phonetics and morphology as well as multi-sensory tactics to engage students. On the other hand, special education courses have been subpar: the teacher has us read in class or lectures at us for hours. I became disappointed when I felt I was getting more experience from working in the field than sitting in the classroom at Simmons. Despite the lack of engagement in some courses, many of the faculty in they general education, reading, and ELL programs are fine-tuned to help and direct anyone to where they need to be.

Awesome graduate program for aspiring women leaders in the corporate sector. However, the east coast is a very expensive area to live in!
