Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The Counselor Education program is CACREP accredited and offers a robust selection of courses that are relevant to today's successful counselors, including Multicultural Counseling, Systems Therapy, Trauma, and a thorough review of the newly released DSM-5. Additionally, students have the opportunity to provide real counseling before they begin their internship, which is coordinated by the department. The faculty is diverse in backgrounds and cultures, and there are numerous opportunities to meet other students. Classes can be small (around 10 people), but sometimes the courses are closer to 25 students, which can affect the quality of the discussions in the courses. Overall, I am highly satisfied with this program, and I believe I will find employment quickly after graduation.

What I like about the courses and the school in general is that they constantly change the curriculum for their courses, making sure what they teach you is current and not outdated. They also make sure they have competent instructors to teach that material.

At UW-Whitewater, I believe the biggest strength is the commitment and accessibility of our faculty and administration. I frequently see our Chancellor walking around campus and talking to students, randomly. Our Provost holds weekly office hours in the University Center and invites all to come speak to her. I see administration, professors, and staff taking the time to attend student organization meetings, mentor case competition teams, organize conference attendances, and even help start a business venture.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

I love that I am able to attend an AACSB accreted program online, this allows for flexibility with my work schedule. I currently travel a lot in my professional career and am very grateful that I do not have to sacrifice my education for my work. Even though my MBA program is online, I am still expected to do group work, participate in lectures, and do the same level of work. I think my program is challenging and it’s obvious that the professors but forth great effort to ensure that they clearly explain expectations and requirements. Initially I was worried that I might have a hard time being an online student because I feared I would not have a connection to the campus. I am grateful that I am able to be an online student and feel a sense of community. I also have the option to take in person classes if I choose. Whitewater is very student focused university with responsive professors who desire for their students to succeed.

The online MBA at Whitewater is a lot of work but worth it. I also have heard great things about the career services offices at UWW.

It's a great program with great professors. The town of Whitewater itself isn't very intriguing, but the student life is pretty decent.

The pros about my graduate program is that the instructors are people who love what they do. Therefore, when they teach the courses, I can tell that they have a passion for what they are doing. This helps all of us to be more engaged and involved in all the topics that are being taught in class. Another pro, is that the instructors genuinely care about the students. They do their best at helping prepare all of us for our future careers and even help lend a hand when we need it. This program overall is great! I just finished my first semester in this program and I absolutely love it! The only con about this program is that it is a newer program so they are not set and stone on the program courses and requirements yet. With that said, a few changes are bound to happen here and there just because it's so new and they want the students to get a great learning experience.
