Degree: History

Overly pricy for the degree I earned. Disappointed that the program was discontinued shortly after completion.

The University of Scranton has provided me with a very rigorous academic program preparing me fully for my journey to dental school. The professors of this university provide an open door policy, which ensures that my academic needs are met. Through the open door policy, I am able to seek advice from my professors regarding personal concerns about future life goals, course selections needed to graduate, and any conflicts faced throughout my academic or private life. Throughout my four years, I learned that the students at this university are willing to go to great extents to help you succeed. I realized that I learn best by studying in groups and have not met one person who was not willing to help explain a concept to me or help me with an assignment. On the financial side, I receive the Every Family Annual Scholarship. This scholarship has had such an enormous impact on the financial aspect of my time spent at the university. This scholarship has truly allowed living on campus and receiving a meal plan an option for me, which makes me extremely grateful. With this scholarship, my student loans have decreased and my stress levels about paying off my loans decreased as well. I will forever be grateful to the donors who have funded a portion of my tuition and provided me the opportunity to spend four amazing years at this outstanding university. As I start my journey to dental school, I am grateful that I could afford to go to a school that has provided me with a strong science background and also a service-driven education to help me succeed in achieving my goal of becoming a dentist. Due to the scholarship this family has provided for me, I was able to pursue my education at this great university and become a strong applicant when applying to dental school.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Scranton offered an education that was priceless. I had only been teaching for one year before I began my Master's program in Curriculum and Instruction, and was still trying to find my way as an educator. This program helped me define my philosophy of education, and made me a more confident teacher. I learned a wealth of information regarding the history of education in America, the different methodologies teachers can use, the best approaches to technology in the classroom, and a plethora of other relevant concepts and practices. I absolutely loved my time at the University of Scranton, and believe my professors went above and beyond to create lessons that challenged their students, and built a community of learners. I would not be the educator I am today with the University of Scranton.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

As a mom and military spouse, the online program at The University of Scranton has been a blessing. The courses are structured in a way that is easy to follow and the online program is no different from the campus program. The instructors are real-world professionals who bring current news into the classroom to teach us how to deal with real situations and to improve critical thinking. While I'm still attending, the classes I have completed are already helping me to advance in my career and preparing me for the CPA exam. The admission process was easy and fast. The staff and counselors are very pleasant to work with and treat me like a person rather than a dollar sign; they legitimately care about my progress and success in the program. I'm very happy with my decision to attend Scranton.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2018

The pros of the University of Scranton's online Master's in Health Administration program are the CAHME-accreditation, internship component, accessibility to professors, flexibility and structure to fit the schedules of working professionals. The cons of the program are the lack of scholarships, graduate student teaching assistantship or research assistant positions.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Scranton MHA program is a great place to pursue a masters level education. The biggest asset of the program is the faculty support regarding course work and research as well as their commitment to assisting in job placement after graduation. The program requires a 6month residency at the completion of the academic course work. This residency is coordinated through the program and many students find employment at these locations at the conclusion of the residency. This is a component of the program that sets it apart from others !

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The online program was sufficient! Some of my professors were fantastic and others were simply "okay," but that's true of most schools. My advisor Ivan Shibley was fantastic and helped me a bunch. I also gave the school 10 stars for the areas I didn't know about -- my program was online.
