Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoyed it. Very small classes with lots of individual attention. Teaching staff is a little older but does their best to stay up to date about current information. College is in a beautiful area with many outdoor activities.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls (UWRF), has a fantastic Education program. Not only do they take the time to help you to understand each subject in depth, they have professors who are extremely knowledgeable about the subjects that they teach. The program is designed to help students receive their teaching degree in approximately 4.5 years with the last half of the year as a student teaching experience. As a freshman, students begin to take classes in the Elementary program which I believe sets them apart from others. By the time students reach their junior or senior year, they enter into the "block program". In this program, students will be in cohorts with students who are also pursuing an Elementary Education degree. The first semester, students have 3 classes which they rotate through throughout the week. Half way through the semester, students will become a "pre-student teacher" and will be placed into an elementary classroom for 3 days a week for the rest of the semester. During this time, students plan and teach lessons to students in a suburban area. The process repeats in the second semester however students will be placed in a urban area and will have 3 different subjects to learn about. After this full year of pre-student teaching, students will be placed in a school which they will teach in for 18 weeks. Typically during the 18 weeks, students will graduate, complete the EdTPA (Education Teacher Performance Assessment), and build connections with their teacher. At the end, students will apply for their license and will have completed the program.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: No GRE required. Professors available and very accessible. Understanding of working adult work-life-school balance. Small hometown feel, but big name university and reputation. Cons: I live in MN, school is in WI. Commute, but it's a personal choice.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros are definitely the professors and their knowledge as well as the applicable, experiential set up of the learning environment. Cons are the need to stay in contact during the daytime even though the program is an evening based one. This is a con because I worked during the day and couldn't be emailing or calling when needed.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The Montessori Education Program at the University of Wisconsin River falls is top notch. The professors are very experienced in their fields and they provide challenging coursework. The professors are also available for questions and concerns. I honestly believe that this program is so excellent because of the amazing professors. The only con that I can think of is that it is a difficult program. There is a lot of work crammed into two short years. However a committed student should not have an issue with this.
