Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros for the graduate program is that it is flexible and allows one, especially if you are working to go at your own pace. Faculty is qualified and there is a good support system in place, good faculty - student relationship. Overall it is a great program I would recommend it to everyone.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Walden provides an affordable option for people who want to further their education in a venue that works for them. Their online program is informative and their academic advisors at attentive and helpful. My academic advisor checks in on me once a week to make sure I do not need help with anything and he is always available when I need him!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Obtaining my Masters in Public Health at Walden University has been an excellent experience. The benefits of attending this fully on-line program include convenience of access to the educational system and access to well developed public health professionals. What I enjoy most about Walden's public health program is that my peers are a very diverse group who I learn from daily. This program is very military friendly. Being a spouse of an active duty Army service member stationed overseas education choices are limited. Walden affords me the opportunity to continue my higher education goals of becoming a public health professional while still supporting my family. I hope to use my education to help improve health care systems within the military community. The common complaint or con for on-line educational institutions seems to be a lack of community involvement. I feel very included at Walden University both as a student and professional.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is self paced to a degree. Faculty are engaged with the students. While it is expected students reach out to faculty when there is a problem, I have had the experience of faculty reaching out to me in times of need.

Walden University Masters of Psychology program was competitive in curriculum and supported my application to positions that surpassed salary and responsibilities of previous employment.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I enjoyed Walden during my Master's degree and I am no returning for my doctoral degree. This should speak for itself how good the University is. The only cons I can list is that the residency requirements never seem to be in a main city close to my home, although Nashville has great spots for residencies where students could connect from this area.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Walden University is a world-wide leader in online education. The quality of the teachers is high and the online tools provided by the university are great. It is also cheaper to enroll in the online graduate program than in the conventional program. The flexibility and convenience of online education are unsurpassed. I highly recommended it.
