Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The program is geared to help future counselor educators. The faculty are accessible and care for the students. There is one con, some teachers take 3 to 4 weeks to grade papers, this limits the amount of time for improvement if any is needed.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Honestly, my graduate program provides a platform for all of its students to build upon through every course being taken. It feels as if all the information you have learned can be applied throughout which is great. There are essentially no gap in between the material you learn and how its applicable towards future courses. The only con may be derived is that my program is totally online and me as a student is not required to come into a physical campus anytime during enrollment. Sometimes it is a "good thing" to come and spend a week or so being on a campus of some sort, however it is an online program!

I believe the graduate program, both Masters and Doctorate are good. The course work is a lot but expected in such a program.
