Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2014

I am a wife and a high school teacher. This means my life is very busy. Southern New Hampshire University is a great school that allows me to live my life and get a quality education. I talk with friends that are doing on campus programs and it doesn't seem like I am missing anything in the education I am receiving online. My academic adviser calls me once every two weeks to make sure I am on track, and she even asks me about my life. They are a joy to work with. My only complaint is there isn't a lot of financial support offered to those who are online graduate students. Despite this, I feel like I made the perfect choice for my busy life and schedule to get my Masters degree.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

As a pro, online university fits my hectic life, as a worker, foster parent, and student. As a con, online classes require a lot of self discipline.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: very accessible online program, reasonable tuition, good interactivity with classmates on discussion boards, good variety of studies. Cons: more "book learning" and less hands on learning for the subject at hand, pace of terms a bit too fast so that once you get a concept it's time to move on to the next. Overall, a good value and a reasonably diverse program with several choices of a concentration component.

Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I think the graduate program is not diverse at all - it is a basic understanding that mostly touches upon what was learned in the undergraduate programs. If you attended SNHU for the undergrad, the graduate program is very similar. However, if you went outside SNHU for your undergraduate then you will enjoy the SNHU graduate program (or so I have been told by classmates)

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2014

I dont have a lot of information about the area, but SNHU is a fantastic school, with great instructors. The classes are challenging and make you think, but really help you learn great focus within your discipline.

I'm in the SNHU online program and think it's fantastic. The teachers are great, the content is extremely high level, and my peers are wonderful.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: The faculty is friendly, helpful, knows the material and flexible. The workload is fair and the work can be challenging at times, but is not too hard to understand. Cons: Policies are hard to find for an online student. Good luck getting your hands on a handbook/anything official. It's like finding a needle in a haystack.
