Student & Graduate Reviews

3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2015

This graduate program here is great! The faculty and staff are very helpful and they challenge me to be my best. The only thing that I would like to see be different is the number of classes offered. There are not many options for classes... for example if I have to choose a mandatory 4 classes, I only have 6 classes to choose from.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is very intensive. I believe that it challenges me to be a better student. Some times I think the work can be too intense because there is a lot of it. I also wish that there were more choices of classes to take. For example say I needed 4 classes, I would only have 6 to choose from. The faculty, however, it very responsive and they try to help their students as much as they can.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

This program has great job placement rates and an incredible reputation throughout the region and the country. Most professors genuinely care for the quality of their classes and the future of their students. The only cons so far have been a couple of adjuncts with little teaching experience.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

This program has a great reputation and is quite unique in what it offers. Most of the professors are fantastic,professional and show interest in students and the quality of the program. There are a few loose cannons who have brought down morale a bit. Biggest complaint is that there doesn't seem to be much regard for student's interest in scheduling of classes, which limits internship opportunities and makes for a great challenge for commuters.

Degree: Public Administration

This graduate program is very focused on developing professionals with real-life skills and great experience. It's located in an area with many opportunities. The faculty (in my experience) are engage and invested in making the experience useful and helpful for all students. Overall, I think it's a really incredible program.

I have only taken two courses so far, but I am very impressed by the learning that is happening in the online classes. My instructor and advisor have been available any time I have had questions.

I thoroughly enjoyed learning how ot be a teacher through their MSSE program.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

The classes are engaging and the workload seems appropriate. However some professors are difficult to get a hold of and the registration system is very convoluted.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program for Public History is competitive and professionally oriented. Classes are principally late afternoon/evening, which suits part-time working professionals.
