Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

When analyzing my graduate program's pros and cons, it is difficult to find negative aspects of my educational experience. I have been enrolled in the school psychology graduate program for one year, and feel that I have gained knowledge of my future profession in the most efficient way possible with the help of the passionate faculty and enthusiastic cohort. The professors I have met and learned from so far have inspired me with their teaching, and it reassures me that I am on the right path towards my future. I cannot praise this faculty enough, and I believe that I will be fully prepared for my future career because of them.

Small-size and camaraderie among students and faculty members. Some programming issues in terms of organization and relaying information to students.

This is a great program. The faculty is amazing and provide you with many different opportunities to learn and grow as a person and a professional. I wouldn't choose any other program. You do need a car and housing is not cheap in Albany, but it is worth it for a quality education.

The CSD program has an amazing faculty, which is definitely the best part of my graduate experience. Not only are they knowledgeable in their respective areas, but they also care about you and make you feel like you can approach them for any help you need. The cost is reasonable compared to other private institutions. Financial aid is decent-they offer many Graduate Assistantships; however, this only covers a portion of tuition and can make it more difficult to get other aid. Overall, the students and faculty are very professional, and the Saint Rose CSD program is respected in the area. I am definitely happy with my decision to attend here.

The majority of the faculty and staff are there to help you strive and maintain success in the program. The smaller class sizes help maintain focus and give students the chance to create stronger relationships. The Career Center and other on campus facilities are good resources for students to use for job and/or school related challenges. Although the campus is small and the cost of attendance is quite expensive, the overall intentions of Saint Rose are good and can be very beneficial to the current and future well-being of those who are enrolled.

The program is pretty small, which provides individualized attention. It was pretty easy to get a graduate assistantship when I wanted one, but by taking that I was not allowed any other financial aid from the college (the assistantship covered a third of tuition only).

The College of Saint Rose music education program is a very small program, which definitely has its benefits. Very small class sizes provide a close, personalized education. There are many opportunities to perform and better your skills as a musician. Unfortunately, because of the small size of the program, there are not a lot of options. You are required to take electives, which is theory give you more control to your degree, but not many classes are offered. I have a graduate assistantship, and have difficulties in finding enough classes to be full time in order to keep it.

Pros- The education department has the best reputation in this area. A degree from St. Rose means a great teacher education. I love my professors and I love everything that I am learning. Cons- The cons are minimal: poor parking, terrible library hours, and location. None of these things impact my education, and I wouldn't trade this decision for any other.

Overall the program is pretty thorough. The class sizes are small, allowing for a more personalized experience. The cost is pretty high though, and there is little opportunity for financial aid.

It would be better if there was more time spent in the classroom with students to gain the experience needed to get a teaching job.
