Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2003

Washburn University has an outstanding graduate degree program for the school of social work. Many may not know that they offer an incentive for maintaining a high GPA in the 2nd half of the BSW program to qualify for a waiver of the first year of the graduate school program. This allows those that are successful in the undergraduate program to complete their graduate studies in 1 year and a summer semester versus attending a full 2 years of graduate school.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

The Masters of Education at Washburn University has prepared me to help navigate the technology that is becoming more prevalent in today's society. In the past teachers begged for tools for their classrooms; calculators, cameras, computers, clickers were requested daily. Now we have the challenge of using those tools appropriately. This degree has taught me how to take the distraction of cell phones and redirect it to a useful tool.

College needs to be more affordable and provide more real life applications. The social work degree could have been more intensive.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2012

College is helpful when being used as a means to an end. In the instance of my own schooling, I knew that I needed an advanced degree to do what I wanted. I had applied at other schools prior to getting admitted to my school, but I am glad that I was able to get my degree from my college.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

Curriculum provides a great deal of flexibility and isn't so difficult that you must commit all of your free time to studies. Professors understand that most of their students are working at the same time as obtaining their MBA. Easy to balance work, school, and life. I recommend this program to others.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

Very good school. Nice administration and Professors. Lacking diversity. I would recommend Washburn because of the class sizes and availability of courses and majors. I appreciate the family atmosphere. Non-traditional students are welcomed at Washburn.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Tough program, but you're ready to practice and eligible for Master's level licensure when you're finished. Not much finical support. Great practicum and internship opportunities.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

Each class is only taught by one prof., so if the professor is bad, the class is bad. A MAcc program is available and very helpful. Some faculty are very helpful with posting job opportunities.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2016

Excellent and knowledgable instructors who are available to students. Caring program with an interest in students. Classes geared toward your licensure in the state of Kansas as an addiction counselor. Positive learning environment. Class expectations made clear for students. The online program took some getting used to, as my undergrad at same university was completed on campus. After a few weeks of online classes, they were easily adapted to. The workload is nothing to sneeze at, but very worthwhile information is presented.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program has the best instructors/professors available. My adviser has always been available to me via e-mail and cell phone to answer comments and concerns, and to lead me in the correct direction when I have complaints. The work load has challenged me to think critically, and made me think to challenge myself in what I am doing in my work with my clients, and made me more open to feedback. I have learned to communicate with others in the field, and learned to communicate within a small network of other addictions professionals.
