I absolutely loved my M.Ed Program at the U of M. It was convenient to complete in one year and provided me with the experience and connections that would assist me in starting my career right after graduation.

I had great teachers who helped me with hands on experiences. I spent a year student teaching and that was very valuable for my education. The combination of classroom and in the work force experiences made for a great experience.

it was big, but that meant a minus 15 for freshman, and the opportunity to take any class imaginable

The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities is a great place to live, work, and study. The Twin Cities are frequently ranked high nationally for quality of life and opportunities available. In the Minneapolis campus, all conveniences are really close by -numerous restaurants, cafes, convenience stores, and even a Target. The school does have diversity - there is a significant amount of international students, as well as vibrant immigrant communities of Hmong, East African descent, and more. The College of Education and Human Development has very high quality faculty who are extremely experienced in their field - combine that with the environment and opportunity for research and exploration in the Twin Cities and you will have an outstanding experience!

My program is a good fit for my experience and new career goals. The instructors have direct application knowledge that they share in their courses. This program does not qualify for financial aid. I am impressed by the diversity of students enrolled in the courses so far.

The CIDE program (within Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development) is a great program with great faculty support, active international projects, and a balanced curriculum.

Highly competitive department with unrealistic prelim exams. Faculty are rarely available. Very political. Reputation of program is maintained by 20 year old research.

The graduate program and the University of Minnesota offers a lot to its students. The professors are experts (many of the books we use are written by the professors themselves), the career services are abundant, and the general support gears us toward a future career in education. The aspect that captured my attention most was the co-teaching aspect of the degree -- we are paired up with a teacher for the whole year to co-teach instead of immediately being a student teacher. This method has a number of benefits, esp. for the students in the classroom. One negative aspect of this program, that is a campus-wide issue, is the lack of diversity. The majority of the student population is white middle-class; a more diverse population would offer a lot more to the campus environment.
