Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

While I can't speak to the physical campus and facilities, I can say that the online component of the University of Missouri's education graduate degrees and certificates delivered exactly what I needed. As a military spouse who was living and working overseas, this program was flexible enough that a full-time jobs and major differences in time zone were not overwhelming hurdles, but academically rigorous and personal enough that I got to know my professors and their high standards.

Faculty is extremely helpful and accessible - strength in both research and instruction. Some requirements for education students still seem a little light for this to be graduate school.

Degree: Educational Leadership

My graduate program was great for both full-time and part-time students and had support systems in place to enhance the academic success of all types of students.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Loved that my program was a small, tight-knit group of graduate students. Faculty and Staff were always available and made your well being, academically and financially, their top priority. Cons: Unfortunately there was not much in the way of career planning or advising. This is something the program really should consider adding, especially for their graduate students.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

I find that the program is individual based. I am not just a number. I have a program built around my future career as a scientist. The faculty genuinely care and work hard to help me succeed. I wish there was more of an outline coming into the program so I didn't feel so lost the first few months but as I have progressed, I feel more comfortable with the graduate program.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

They seem more worried about keeping their numbers and averages for graduation then helping their students succeed and get jobs.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that the program really feels like a community and I always feel like I'm supported. The funding makes it possible for me to attend and worthwhile too. The cons are that the MA only CW program is pretty tight in terms of class flexibility.
