I completed my masters program through a satellite program run by The Regional Training Center. They used The College of New Jersey as their parent school. I found that the professors were knowledgeable and the staff was very helpful. The class sizes were smaller so I knew that I could receive individual attention.

I am attending TCNJ to complete a MAT in Secondary Education: English. I will earn my Masters in a year, including summer sessions, which is a particularly appealing aspect of the program. Faculty and staff are extremely accessible and the courses are developing my critical thinking skills. Unfortunately, the courses are expensive and there are limited opportunities for student employment on campus.

I loved completing my Masters in Counseling through The College of New Jersey! I am now attempting to re-enter for my certificate in Student Assistance Coordinator. The faculty is extremely hardworking and supportive. The ability to network and continue to stay active is great. I cannot find a better program!

As a member of the eof program I have received a large amount of funding for schooling. Unfortunately TCNJ is not based in any popular city but it is only 30 minutes from philly and an hour from new york.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

There are only pros to a theory based program for someone like me who wants to work as a critic. The only con to any program is that it costs quite a lot of money and it is very difficult for me to work as a contractor to get some of the money, almost most of this semester way paid by my brother, next semester I will have to get loans.

My graduate program is excellent because you get the Master's degree with only one additional year tacked on to the traditional four-year program.

The College of New Jersey is very student friendly as the faculty seem to genuinely care about the student's reception of the program. They make sure to do everything possible to make sure that the student and the program in which you are enrolled fit each other in the best way possible.
