Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I am just starting the grad program so I really don't have an opinion of the school at this time.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Walden University is an online school, which allows for a great deal of flexibility in your schedule and other obligations. It requires a high degree of self-direction because you do not have the pressure of a brick classroom. Students come from around the country and around the world, enriching discussions that are a part of each course. Instructors often work in the field and can help with practical suggestions in providing mental health care. Instructors are generally prompt at responding to emails and grading work. Overall, I am very happy with Walden University.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

My online graduate program allows efficient time for me to still work to obtain experience while pursuing a higher degree. I am still able to have a great connection with my professors and other collegues. I truly love this program.

Graduation Year: 2015

It's a different format than other online classes I took for my Bachelors. But overall, I would recommend them!

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2017

As a working professional, the course work at Walden University allows me to study in my own time and at my own pace. There is technology support available when needed, the books are mailed to my home, and I have easy access to my professors. Also, Walden University is recognized by my school district as a respected university. The course work is rigorous and demanding, but very relevant to the education profession. I know that once I graduate from Walden University with a Doctorate in Education, I will be well prepared for the challenges faced as an educator.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I was unable to rate some because I am doing it online, or the grade would be higher. The academic adviser given to me has exceeded all expectations and made my life so much easier. I am so excited to get started!

It is been tough work but it is been a journey that it would never get back. The quality of education. The availability of the staff. The ability to interact with people from all over. Walden University has a program for you.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Since the classes are online it is easy to never miss a deadline. However, some classes have a more workload than some can handle and work full-time. Overall, I'm pleased with my decision to attend this school.
