Catholic University of America Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
I recommend The Catholic University of America's Post-Master Certificate to prepare for Adult/Geriatric Nurse Practitioner practice. The older population in the United States is growing exponentially and therefore, our health care system needs a corresponding nurse practitioner force to meet that need. I find that the preparation offered by CUA is not only adequate and relevant for my first and future employment in this area, but also supportive in networking and placement in the local Washington, DC area. Our coursework was rigorous, courses had a good instructor to student ratio, the student body diverse, and the setting was pleasant and safe for maintaining focus on our chosen academic pursuits. This is a great institution and I advise anyone contemplating a career in health care education or nursing to consider this choice.
CUA offers rigorous programs, but the effort is always worth it. Professors challenge students to think deeply about important issues while encouraging students to do their best. CUA offers a true community that is supportive and welcoming to people of all traditions and backgrounds. Want to meet the future leaders of America? Go to CUA, be challenged, and rise to the occasion.
I highly enjoyed my college and the child psychology degree program I was accepted into. I felt that it helped me get to where I want to be and to what I want to do. In the psychology department you are given the options of many different courses and tracks to better specify what you are interested in pursuing.
It's a great school. If Catholic faith is important to you then it may be a good fit. Also has great nursing and architecture programs.
Too religious and conservative, but the programs they had for my two majors (English and French) were strong, and I would recommend them to anyone interested in studying what I studied. I also received a lot of help from advisors in both programs when I applied to grad school - I would not have made it in without them.
A graduate degree in Systematic Theology from America's Pontifical university has opened doors for me AROUND THE WORLD. The faculty members were extremely well published and internationally renowned. In international religious circles throughout the world, a graduate degree from Catholic University of America is a valuable calling card.
Funding was difficult which meant I needed to have multiple jobs to get through graduate school and I did not get to take full advantage of the program.
The school was a good fit. Since my parents paid for college completely out of pocket, I never gave much consideration to whether or not it was a good value. I learned a lot, most importantly how to think critically. If I had to do it again, a business, accounting, or computer science degree would probably have made me more marketable, but it wouldn't have been as interesting or fun to study. I think today, students almost have to go to graduate school to really get a jump on their careers. It's difficult, but try to figure out what you love to learn about or do, then choose your major based on that. Your career will evolve from there.
