Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Cyber Security Investigative Forensics is not available at many Universities and University of Maryland University College allows for students gives students an alternative (online) way to attain both and undergraduate and graduate degree in this field. One Con about attending attending a non traditional college is you do not get to interact verbally with other students. However, if the students can overcome this barrier the learning environment is great.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

I am seeking a masters degree in healthcare administration at University of Maryland University College. I love the convenience of having the availability to participate in face to face and on line courses. My on line courses have been great. I have meet peers in other countries, military staff. Financially some may consider it affordable but due to undergraduate loans I don't want anymore loans so this scholarship would definitely assist me paying for my graduate degree.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

I strongly support University of Maryland's online learning environment because, as a working professional, I have the convenience of attending class at my leisure. Love, Love, Love! Unfortunately, I do have concerns in regards to the financial strain of attending grad school at the University of Maryland. As for job placement after graduation, that option is only for student that live near the college. After graduating with a BS in Information Systems Management I was responsible for acquiring interships and employment without any assistance from the college.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I entered the Healthcare Administration graduate program on January 2014, after graduating from a 4-year traditional university that previous fall. Entering an online program was a big adjustment, but I was happy that I had the option to take Hybrid classes my first year. After getting adjusted to the online portion of my graduate degree, I decided to take classes solely online and work full-time. The program is not easy and very informative. I had to discipline myself in completing my reading and going through the lecture and making informative discussion post. The work load is similar to any traditional in-class university. I would recommend this program to anyone, who wants to go to school but has to work full-time, has a family to take care of, or just wants to get a degree from an accredited University from anywhere in the U.S. I hope this post was informative and good luck to all those pursuing a degree!

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

PROS. Give the job market a few years to bounce back Opportunity for more specialized student loan debt Provides more impressive credentials to parents’ friends Can experience college life anew as mature, wizened 26-year-old Increases chance of finding perfectly matched partner while staring across piles of paper at law school study session Will make you stand out among other unpaid interns Undergraduate degree suddenly good for something. CONS. May be unable to communicate with people who haven’t gone to grad school No money left to frame second degree Only small percentage of PhDs actually go on to be featured in History Channel specials Could be a lot of work Will have to say thesis topic out loud Impossible to truly relive glory days of co-ed madrigal singers Could lead to career in academia
