Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

I absolutely love this program and all the knowledge I am gaining. The only con I have is the overall cost of the program but honestly any PHD program is expensive. The professors are fantastic and the rigor is tough but so engaging that you really are having fun while working hard. I would recommend the TAMCU to anyone who wants a quality education!

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Some professors are very open to student's ideas, views and suggestions. They also like to work with you when there are obstacles that might hinder students from continuing with the program. They are very flexible, and supportive of your ideas for dissertations and program presentations. Cons: The program is very disorganized when it comes to planning degree plans, responding emails, contacting program's advisors. A student figures things out as he or she moves through the program. Also, there is not a sense of a cohort group, so you are moving a long as you go. Some of their classes are gear toward cognitive-counseling, therefore, you might have a difficult time if you see clients from a humanistic/person-centered approach.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The program was clearly advertised by the outside recruiting agency as a 30 month program that would cost appx $30,000. I finished my EdD very much earlier than anyone in my cohort and it took me 36 months and over $50,000. So I think that was a bit misleading. I enjoyed the program and always got whatever support I needed to complete the necessary tasks. But the professors let me struggle just enough to get the desired learning out of the material. I have grown so much throughout the program and have made (what I hope are) lifelong friends and colleagues. The program was rigorous and academic with a good mix of theory and practice. I was always able to apply the coursework to my daily craft working with students and teachers.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the University is heading toward creating a barrier for students who choose the program and University based on the convenience of being flexible. Here lately the students are ask to work in groups, as a convenience to the teacher. There is down side of working in a group and the assignment is heavily weighed toward your grade, along with a peer evaluation, I feel if my grade is constituent on someone else's schedule, I think they should be responsible for a portion of my student loans.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm currently an educator in Texas and I was looking for a program that would allow me to efficiently work and learn. The program so far has been BEYOND my expectations. The classes have added value the way that I think about my instruction, the content is relevant to what I am doing and is not overwhelming in my day to day life. If you're looking for a program that is flexible, online, and affordable A&M Commerce is a great choice!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Personally, the program was not a challenge. I do not feel as if it provided me with enough of the proper tools to be successful in the future. Some of the Faculty and Staff are amazing, and I owe so much to these few. However, with that said, there are several Faculty that I feel do not show appreciation for the students in the graduate program.
