The College of St. Scholastica Rural Healthcare Administration MBA program, which is 100% online, has allowed myself as an incredibly busy mother of two, who works full time, to receive a nearly unmatched education. The skills and theories learned, not only have the Benedictine values instilled into their ethos, but also are directly applicable to the rural healthcare setting. As a member of the nursing administration team in a critical access hospital, these lessons, including direct application of projects, not only benefit myself intellectually, but also are encouraged to drive the organizations we work with toward continuous performance improvement. Not only are the faculty members experienced and knowledgeable of real time healthcare administration change drivers, they also foster an environment of connectivity, community, and trust amongst our graduate studies cohort. Having a cohort with other health care administrators, members of the health care industry outside of the acute care setting, as well as a multitude of diverse perspectives has created a culture of excellence within the program to drive the future of healthcare toward success in tumultuous times. The College of St. Scholastica, having the only rural healthcare administration MBA program within the United States is at the cutting edge of driving our future health care administrators to meet the current and future demands of the health care system.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I think this graduate program will directly relate to my job and the jobs that I'm looking to upgrade to in the future. The shortness of the program is what appealed to me the most.

Pros: gain fieldwork and clinic experience. (I've heard more than other OT grad programs in MN) Cons: price, program is slightly unorganized

The reputation of the graduate program will be extremely helpful when applying for jobs. The class size is small, so you can achieve the best learning experience. One con about going to a private college is the expense. However, majority of graduate schools are around the same tuition fees.

The Graduate Teaching Licensure Program at the College of St Scholastica is ideal for full time young professionals looking to change careers and advance specific education skills. The program is flexible with online course work during the week and 2 weekends a month on-campus seminars. I found the Program to be quality because most of the Professors have been in teaching or are still currently teaching in grade level skills therefore they bring real-life examples. One con is that you need to make sure to have the time for the workload. The program is set up as an accelerated program meaning 16 weeks of curriculum are packaged into a 8 week timeframe. Overall, I have had a great experience in the Graduate Teaching Licensure Program at the College of Saint Scholastica.

I am in the Graduate Teaching Licensure program and it is a great program for working adults. Classes are a blend of online and weekend classes. I am able to take classes while working until I start student teaching. I can finish the entire program and receive a teaching license in 18 months. It is the best option in the Twin Cities for a teaching license if you cannot quit work to go to school full time. The program works best if you are a self-starter and are not concerned about campus activities or a school social life. It is also cost effective with a reasonable tuition.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

St Scholastica offers a beautiful small campus that is based on the value of community. Everyone is very welcoming and the professors are always willing to meet with students to discuss course work or future career opportunities. Located in Duluth Minnesota, there are plenty of things to do day and night.

Graduation Year: 2013

Cons are that it is an expensive graduate school because the school doesn't provide graduate scholarships like they do for undergraduates. I wish there would be more homework involved to understand and see real world application. Pros include a great environment with very helpful teachers who care about how you are doing in and outside of class. Professors really want you to apply your knowledge in class and feel confident about materials before leaving the program.
