Degree: Organizational Leadership

Pros The professors are very knowledgable. The quality of the material is great. I can relate to the material I learn to the company I work for. Cons A few years ago, the campus had an incident that questions the safety of the school.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

A tight-knit community within the program, but sometimes the school forgets it's an academic institution. For example, on Alamo Heights night all parking was closed off for the event with no regards towards students.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of the Incarnate Word: School of Physical Therapy program leaves several more pro's than con's. Apart from the high student to faculty ratio here in San Antonio, the curriculum of Problem Based Learning (PBL) really does make the student learn the body and it's function before progressing to the next level. The con's definitely lie in the tuition. It is a private school so that is somewhat expected!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros, the faculty members are very dedicated, passionate and knowledgeable in their field of study. We are treated as individuals and not as a pay check for the school. At UIW we are a not just a community, we are more like a family where we all take care after each other. Cons: some students are too young to be in a masters program.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The physical therapy program uses Problem-Based learning, which has been very helpful for my learning. I feel as though I am actively involved in every aspect of my learning, and lectures no longer appeal to me because they are so dull and passive. Problem-based learning gives students the opportunity to come up with learning objectives and then go find the answers, which really helps commit information to memory. The professors all seem very well connected, which has been great for finding clinical rotations across the U.S.
