"This review is for the Bachelor's degree in Behavioral Science as well as a Master's degree in Human Resource Strategic Management. B.S. in Behavioral Science: I would rate it 8 out of 10 The classes were challenging however, as with most online colleges, you are left to do a lot of reading to learn. The professor provided video discussions which was greatly appreciated and respectable (A+ for that). The discussion boards made me question their effectiveness, as it can be quite difficult to approach an already awkward situation such as forced discussion when you have encounter some discussion posts that resemble those you may expect from jr. high students. I wish the professor was more involved with discussions. However, although I didn't like this aspect I feel it made me learn how to object to others' opinions more respectfully. For all those who think that you can begin to practice in a counseling setting- DO YOUR HOMEWORK (excuse the pun)! IN MOST STATES YOU WILL NEED AT LEAST A MASTER'S AND THOUSANDS OF HOURS OF INTERNSHIP BEFORE YOU CAN PRACTICE. If you do not research the requirements in your state please do not blame Bellevue for your inability to practice with only your Bachelor's degree. The Bellevue curriculum is sufficient in preparing you for further education in the field if you study hard. Worst thing about this degree: The Kirkpatrick Signature Series. It was basically 12 weeks of Political Science and History, and being in a major that relies mostly on theory, the teacher does not allow you to have a difference of opinion from him (even when supported by valid references). Other than that I would suggest going to Bellevue for your degree in Behavioral Science if you are actually interested in the inner-workings of behavior; you will learn a lot if you apply yourself. Just hone in on your history and political science knowledge.... and remember your degree won't be just handed to you- you're going to have to earn it in this discipline. Master's of Science in Human Resource Strategic Management: 8 out of 10 I would give the program a higher rating however I am just finishing the third class. So far the material, assignments and discussions are relevant and effective. I am about to switch teachers yet this teacher has been attentive and educational. The discussion boards are still awkward; I feel more emphasis should be made on discussions between professors and students. I learned a lot more from the teacher's feedback than the students'. Look, stop forcing people to have two uncomfortable "conversations" with students. It doesn't work. I want to learn from someone with knowledge on the matter, not struggle to correct another student. Please Bellevue, find another way to engage students with one another. Even though the collaborative projects are terrible (as our grade depends on the contribution of all parties) sprinkle those in the curriculum and stop making us answer others' discussion posts so much! Also, if the student receives a grade of less than 100% professors should provide feedback, giving the student a chance to improve their grade the next go-around. Okay. I'm done with the venting. I have done extensive studying and devoted much time to my assignments and I feel it is paying off. Aside from the regular frustrations you will feel in this program (and doing online courses) at this school, I would recommend this program. I've learned a lot already about Human Resources, and anticipate much more learning.The teacher answers all questions quickly and completely, and furthers discussions when necessary (A+) and is a great contributor to your learning. Worst thing about this degree: We are forced to respond to discussion posts from peers. Please create a way where we can respond to the professor's questions instead. The professor will be able to more easily gauge our learned knowledge, and students won't have to be forced to replying with sub-par responses. Overall, I still recommend Bellevue University. I have attend other online universities (Ashford and Capella) and have seen these same problems that I have listed. Bellevue is more affordable and their curriculum is comparable to the schools I have attended before."

"Someone is trying to create a personal campaign against the university. Remember everyone can post here and this information is not verified. So, one person can write over different names. This school is considered in top 20 to offer online education. The quality of the personnel, financial, academic, technical advisors is excellent. THE DEGREE IS HIGHLY RECOGNIZED FOR ANY EMPLOYER. I have got a lot of opportunities to work.The professors provide exceptional feedback, and every detail is well-done to improve your level of education. THIS UNIVERSITY IS ACCREDITED, and It is because its quality. Do not believe in SCAMMERS that come to post without knowing about the quality of the university."

"I completed my Bachelor's degree with Bellevue and felt that the in class version was beneficial to me. I attended the online course for my Master's and felt it was extremely lacking. There is absolutely no instruction, peers are allowed to steal others work with no consequences (no matter how frequently this is reported), and grading is not based on the actual work being done. I have documented "discussions" where the "professor" is indicating that she is confused by the assignment or the direction that she is supposed to be giving us. If the "professor" doesn't understand, how are we supposed to know? When concerns are taken to a higher level, there is no concern expressed and you are simply referred back to the "professor" causing the issue. I will never attend classes here in the future, and I will not recommend this "University" to anyone that I know. I do disagree with the reviews indicating that these degrees are viewed as high school diplomas, and that anyone can get them. I have seen several co-workers drop courses or fail courses due to the difficulty, however I will agree that the scenarios and teaching presented does NOT match what is happening in real life. Academic counseling, enrollment services, and financial aid services are equally bad. Phone calls and emails are not returned or questions do not seem to be understood. Perhaps the staff needs to attend some degree courses as well. Too bad I wasted another year and a half of my life and money on this."

"Online Degree Program (never took classes in person) Instructors have you teach yourself by reading your text book. You have "discussions" with your peers via forums each week. They are not helpful and force classmates to come up with "substantial " comments regarding your post. It's awkward because once a person addresses the topic, there's usually very little left to say. The online format is not user friendly. The interface is like using something from the 90's. You only "learn" what you retain from your text book and have no instruction for real life situations. The saddest part is that several employers don't recognize Bellevue as a "real" learning institution. I might as well have graduated from 7-11. Do yourself a favor and attend a reputable school that has quality instructors where you'll actually learn something."

"Communication is almost non existent at this school. You are assigned an advisor who will likely not return your calls or emails. The "professors" have very little to no real life experience and therefore you spend your time reading text, participating in half hearted "discussions" which are actually responses to another student's post in a forum. Thankfully, I had over 10 years of real life experience in this field before I began taking classes at Bellevue as I literally learned nothing. My classmates were frustrated at the lack of quality instruction. The "professor" remained the same for all of the HR classes, which was both strange and of no benefit. She was extremely unorganized and unknowledgeable. Her grading system was all over the place and many of my classmates (and myself) sent her emails multiple times a week pointing out inconsistencies and issues. Had I not been so close to achieving my degree I would have left much earlier. My advice is to avoid Bellevue and find another quality institution."

"I attended this school twice, once for my BS HR Management and returned again to complete the MSHRSM. Although I think the programs and the ability to complete your education are worth attending this university. I remain unimpressed with the lack of compassion and empathy from two of the professors, one who is the program direction. I have learned they both happen to be close friends which is understandable why they both similiar lack of human empathy. The first time, the professor failed to explain my incorrect research before granting me an F. At the start of the graduate program, I was late turning in my final paper (worth 50% of the class grade) by one day and although grades had not been submitted, I received an F. This created financial aid problems for me. Although I understand the importance of syllabus instructions and turning papers on time, there are times when unexpected situations arise. The next class I received a C for a a paper when the information contained had been used previously for a paper I received a A. These type of vindictive actions compromised my financial aid and I am now expected to pay out of pocket to bring my GPA up to 3.00. If you are a hard working student and don't mind HR professionals who are not value based leaders, go for it! If your expectations include HR professionals accountable with the ability to collabortively work with your towards your educational goals with great empathy! This is not the school for you! Don't bother appealing, instead of answeringif the process lacked overt empathy, the Dean will provide you with random filters from overall class information.I only complain because the principle of the syllabus overtly allows these two professors to discrimiate especially if you enter the program with more experience."
