Degree: Geriatric Nurse/Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

As a current student, I submit my impressions after three semesters. This course is designed to be totally online. Many of the faculty are self-important, insulting, and very disorganized. After the first semester, you will come to understand that University of South Alabama (USA) has no teachers. The self-aggrandized faculty at the school seem irritated if you attempt to contact them by phone, and the assignments are a maze of announcements (one afterthought following another & the student is expected to make sense of this puzzle). The rubrics and the syllabus become generalized dogma that they will use against students (do not accept anything the instructor says as true unless it is in writing). If I lived in Alabama, I would file a lawsuit for financial damages because the faculty requested additional work that required out of pocket expenses and then would not make good on the agreement because it was not in writing. My complaint that I did not receive adequate technical support was met with the Department Chairs assertion that quantitatively I had received more than my fair share of digital responses to my issues. If that support was not helpful to me in my specific situation, that is not their problem. If you are absolutely terrific at writing error free papers in APA format, and easily work with many audio, visual formats, then this program can expedite your journey to an MSN or DNP. If you are not perfect in using APA format, major multi-tasking or mind reading...Steer clear of this program, it will crush you, mind and spirit.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2010

Not an impressive alma mater to have, but a decent education. The English department is better than it has any right to be because the job market for academics is so poor right now. South has a lot of talented people.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 1993

USA is a great university in a great city. Most professors in the Mitchell College of Business at USA held Ph.D.s in their field and most also had industry experience. Classes were small and personable. I was inspired by them to continue my education and have been extremely successful as a result.

Degree: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2014

The courses offered and Dauphin Island Sea Lab are the highlight of the entire Marine emphasis Biology program offered at USA. Besides that the overall staff in the biology department is great. They are dedicated to helping you take on research opportunities if you want extra experience before graduation which is great.
