Capella University Reviews - Doctorate in PsychologySee reviews of all programs at Capella University
This is my second degree with Capella College. I recieved my Master's degree in Human Behavior in 2017. The courses fit the degree and the instructors were very insightful. My experience with Capella was great which allowed me to advance my skills and knowledge as well as return to complete my PhD with them.
This school is a poor choice. The instructors do NOT teach. You ask questions and they say read the syllabus or the book. They do not give you clear directions. And when you have an issue you get bounced around and no one ever helps you find any resolution. Sooo dissatisfied. This experience has cost me a lot of money (over 150k and still going) and even more anxiety and stress.
One of the best decisions I have made! After much research and evaluation of institutions which were willing to adjust to my busy schedule, but also with knowledgeable professors as well. Capella has proven to be the institution I have validated was an accurate choice. After completing my doctorate degree I felt that my professional career as a Business Coach has exponentially grown (intellectually and financially) and I have acquired a level of competency to service well organizations and C-level leaders. Thank you Capella.
I attended Capella University because of time and convenience of distant learning. I have done both brick and mortar and distant learning as a student as well as a professor. My preference is distant learning. it is more intimate between the student and the professor. I have sat in b&m classes and the instructor never knew my name outside of being on a class roster. In each distant learning course I had contact, email, postings and telephone calls as well as Skype with my professors. Capella is the same accreditation as any brick and mortar school. Many b&m use distant learning in their course work as well. The quality of my education based on the Capella format I will compare to any other school. I'm proud of my degree and never feel any reservation about stating where I attended my doctoral program. If you go into this with the idea "I pay my money and I expect a degree" you are fooling yourself. This is a tough, rigorous, ethical, academic degree. You will only get out of it what you are putting in.
I was looking for a program that allowed me flexibility, but that also challenged me. Capella University has done both. I feel have gained valuable information on my program and would definitely recommend it to individuals that are initiators. Magdalena
The PhD in I/O Psychology I earned at Capella University has served me very well. I went to a land based Masters Program so know what a graduate program should look like. It was extremely difficult. I was held to high standards by all teachers but especially by my mentor and dissertation committee which included a Harvard grad. I am mystified that people don't calculate the cost of their program until they are well into it. If you want to be handed a degree this is not the place but if you want well-qualified teachers who grade according to appropriate standards for doctoral candidates then consider this school.
I enrolled at Capella University in June of 1999. I Graduated in 2004, and I am extremely happy that I was able to find professional growth. This academic institution will work only for those that are willing to put in hard work, and are dedicated to become an erudite scholar. Thank you for the opportunity!
Excellent academic institution (Hybrid Ph.D.). The best College Experience! In the Summer, I attended classes at North Western University, and Augsburg University. Capella University worked closely with these academic institutions, so that we could use their facilities, and me and my graduate classmates had the opportunity to dorm on campus. Capella University at the Graduate level is Hybrid, and yes you need to go to Minnesota! I strongly recommend this academic institution. There are many All but Dissertation (ABD) students, because they have failed to put in the hard work. If you decide to enroll, be ready to earn your degree. The grade, or the degree will not be given to you. In one occasion, I had an F in one of my courses, and I took it again. Do the work! putting in the time, learn, and prosper! Currently, I worked for the U.S. Government, and I teach as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Psychology. I have accomplished my academic goals, and professional endeavors thanks to this Academic Institution: Capella University AKA The Graduate School of America. Thank you for changing my life.
CAPELLA UNIVERSITY was a great college exp. This Academic Institution was my vehicle for upward mobility. IT is fully accredited, and my diploma, transcripts have been accepted by other academic institutions, State Board of Psychology in California, and government institutions. Currently employed with a U.S. Govt. Thanks to all of my professors. Vivamus mi literatum and Semper Peterum!
From the first time I called Capella to the commencement, I only have positive comments. Capella was very challenging, yet staff and faculty cherished our successes. They were highly supportive from the beginning to the end. I can honestly say that I had the best academic experience at Capella. Very organized, challenging, creative, and supportive!
