Student & Graduate Reviews

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Before entering the program I had a whole different idea of what I thought counseling would be. This is a program that allows and encourages students to find importance in self-care and knowing one's true authentic self. It demands its counselors to find importance in becoming culturally competent while learning and celebrating diversity. The program has allowed me to reflect, process and engage in experiences and new situations that challenge me to think of other perspectives and interpretations and find them beautiful and unique. I wish the program offered the specialty classes (Play therapy, Counseling Sexual Minorities, Addictions Counseling, etc..) more often.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

UMSL's business program is respected in the St. Louis area. There are many business owners and corporate workers around the city that have graduated from our business program. While some classes are engaging and worth the time, there are a few that could be improved upon.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The instructors bring their knowledge that is based on experience as well as their training. The fact that they have experience behind their training is a plus. I also found them to be accessible outside of the classroom, responding to any questions/emails I might have. The one complaint I would have is that several of the evening classes do not offer more than one section. Additionally, they usually start around 4:00 to 4:30 pm. Because I have a set work schedule that is full time I found these circumstances to be somewhat of an obstacle

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The school is excellent, however the program I am enrolled in is relatively new. As with most new things there are a lot of bugs that still need to be worked out with the program. Overall, I feel as though it is a good investment.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

There are a lot of opportunities to meet new people, but I found that the staff don't know very much about things like number of credits to be a full time student.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Missouri St Louis is a diverse university located in the middle of St Louis. My only negative comments have to do with breaking through the commuter feel that the university has.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

The program is ranked highly, which is a pro. A con is the night classes.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I like the schedule. All part time MBA classes start at the same time and end at the same time. If I have two classes, I only have to drive to campus two days a week. This program is made for working adults. The workload is not that bad. It does make for some very long days every week.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I have extremely enjoyed my graduate program. The classes were challenging and interesting. Whenever I encountered a problem my teachers and classmates were always ready and willing to help. The only con I could think of was there should be more real world examples for school counselors in training. However, I do not really think that was a fault in my program.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The social work program at UMSL is, for the most part, wonderful. While campus can't compete with other (expensive) schools in the area, the cost of the school is great for the quality of the education. Professors are happy to work with you to develop social work skills and take time in class to dive deeply into case issues. UMSL's social work program spends less time developing research skills, but many of the practicum sites we share with other programs in the area prefer UMSL students because of their willingness to work hard. UMSL students are there for skills, not just more initials after their name.
