So far, I keep encountering peers who cannot spell. I am incredulous how being unable to spell is ever going to allow someone to muster the rigors of APA/dissertation. Also, the answers provided by classmates are very rigid, canned, expected, pro forma, not reality. Thinkers? I am not sure if this is intentional or unintentional? Whether pursuing a PhD by definition weeds out the humanity or vice versa?
I am greatly enjoying my time at Capella University. Everyone has been incredibly helpful from my admissions counselor to my professors and teacher's assistants. I was nervous about taking classes purely online but Capella has made the experience smooth and easy. There are videos showing exactly how to access classroom material, teacher assistants willing to help you with anything from writing papers to software problems. Every professor has been easily reached through email or text message. I cannot state just how easy and enjoyable this experience has been for me. Like everything else in life, you get out what you put in. As long as you are willing to do the work and put in the effort, you will succeed through Capella University.
The curriculum and course set for each student to make it possible to finish and achieve your dreams despite your busy life. I am a full-time mother, wife, daughter, and supervisor all at the same time but I can still be able to do my assignments and discussions set by the school. Knowing that achieving your dreams is just out of your reach, with time management and proper support and motivation, a person like me is motivated to move forward. Fulfilling my dreams even with hurdles and bumps in the road is not easy. I want to show to my children that in life there are always bumps and hurdles but to be able to move forward a person must have the courage to face it.
Capella University is a wonderful school to obtain a degree from because they offer its potential students, students, and alumni a world of assessable knowledge through I-Guide and other online tools. Capella University is also, a well known University were employers hires it graduates to become apart of the organization leadership team. So, select Capella University as your school of choice.
This is an online college, therefore you must be self motivated to complete the work. I work a full time job, have a family, and handled a full load with Capella while maintaining a 4.0. I've read some negative reviews about this school and I completely disagree. You get what you give and as long as you do the work (correctly), you'll do well. My only negative is the finance department. They were a bit difficult to initially deal with. I have been out of school awhile and was somewhat lost in the financial aid and their department was little help. They also did not apply my grant that I was promised after they partnered with my employer. I had to stay on top of them - which was ridiculous considering all the hats I was wearing at the time. Besides the finance, everything from the professors to the advisers were incredibly helpful. All but one professor was excellent and provided helpful feedback. If you happen to have Dr. Pape - heaven help you. She seems to be the only professor that does this full time and she was rather difficult and contradictory with her feedback. Everyone else had full time jobs outside of Capella and understood the workload. As far as the material, I found it applicable to my work and therefore gained more knowledge to apply to my job. Overall, I have enjoyed my experience at Capella for the MHA program. I highly suggest to those pursuing higher education!
Capella University Guided path was just what I needed. I was 45 years of age when I decided to go back and get a degree and with a busy full time job and full time parenting, I was a little worried on how I could get a degree during everything else. The school advisors walked me through the first year of how to set up courses and determined what was best for me to teach me how to plan out my future success. It was a huge help. With Capella's writing assessments, it meant I didn't have to sit and cram for an exam, so it speak, or memorize unnecessary works. I simply had to take what I have learned and write a specific topic to complete a course. Oh! and the courses are designed with the adult learner in mind. Everything about this school has led to my success, not just as a student, but in my career.
I am a single mother and working a full-time job as well. I am currently working towards my Master's in Human Resources. Capella has made this journey easy simply due to the online classes, counselors, professors, and Dr.s that teach classes. The staff is very knowledgeable and has brought awareness to ideas in areas of the realm of the Human Resource world I would have never thought of. Any time I have called Capella with a question or concern they have always had answers and were very prompt with the answers. This includes financial aid to academic planning. I feel the program I am in is very valuable and I have witnessed the things I have learned being implemented in my current workplace.
Well developed program. Very organized.started at another University with a lot of disorganization, but Capella has been fully dependable and easy to get into contact with everyone I have wanted to. The program is very manageable and provides the necessary coursework for each class.
I was a transfer student from a New York State university and most of my credits were transferable. I chose the FlexPath Program which would allow me to complete my degree program faster. I completed the program in 20 months and then went on to pursue my Master of Science Degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology. The Capella FlexPath program allows me to take as many courses as I can complete in a 12 week billing session. It did take some getting used to as all of my previous on-line courses required classroom discussions, completion of only one module at at time and I had to wait until the next semester to take other courses. FlexPath allowed me to complete the courses as my own pace and some courses were completed in only 6-8 weeks as I did not need all 12 weeks. As soon as a course was completed, I just clicked a button indicating the course was completed and within just a few short hours, my next course was ready to go. Capella offers all the tools necessary for one to succeed in their academic journey as they provide a FlexPath coach, tutor for each course, and a knowledgeable faculty. The faculty gave very useful feedback on each assessment which helped me better understand the competencies for each course. I'm an older student who decided to go back to college many years after high school graduation and I must say, with my degree, I was able to get a state government job within weeks of completing my Bachelor of Science in General Psychology through the Capella FlexPath program. I highly recommend Capella University's FlexPath program to anyone wanting to complete their degree by actually understanding what they are learning and given the opportunity to apply that knowledge in their day-to-day lives as well as employment.
From the very beginning of my career at Capella University, the advisors were knowledgeable, resourceful, and provided information of programs that would be useful in my future professional goals. Each professor has made themselves available to assist with any questions or concerns as well as provide several opportunities to enhance growth in the rigorous assignments that are required in classes. Each quarter students are able to look in advance to see when things are due which gives an opportunity to devise a schedule to ensure students are able to meet deadlines. Through readings and interactions with peers, students are able to apply knowledge they have learned and receive feedback from fellow peers and their professors. As a MFT student, I have learned more about the importance of family involvement in treatment as well as gravitated towards the narrative family therapy approach which views clients as resourceful and competent enough to overcome adversities through the help of the therapist uncovering their strengths.
