"I used this degree program to get my Bachelor's Degree to apply for PT school, the degree is OK in itself, but it was not the best degree I could've went through to get into school. If you plan on going into the fitness field, I would highly recommend this degree plan to get you into that career path. It ends with an internship course in the final semester which allows you to work in your hopeful field through Lamar."

"The university helps you in every way to reach your goals. The advisors send you in the right direction, no matter the issue. All professors I have came in contact with, make sure to push you to learn as much as possible in your area of study. I am excited to enter the graduate program."

"I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas in December of 1981. So, to tell you about the school may be old news but it was fabulous then and is even more so now, with many more programs and opportunities!!!!!"

"I am currently attending Lamar online after attending the college and I really really love it. The professors are very dedicated to helping you and answering questions. You get their phone number to call if you can't reach them by email. Financial Aid is available to those who qualify. The school makes it really easy to submit your documents...I applied using my cell phone and google drive because I was very determine to return to school. Sometimes you end up with some of the same professors for different classes within your major which is something that I love. You can take classes at whatever rate you find best unless your on finan. aid in which you have to take a set amount of hours (no less than 12 for FT students). The courses are broken into 2 8 week sessions per semester or 15 weeks. For example for 8 weeks you'll take two classes and the next 8 weeks you'll take another 2 classes for a total of a 12 hr semester. I would recommend to anyone whether you live in Texas or Montana."

  • Degree: English
  • Graduation Year: 2007
"Lamar has an excellent English faculty and I believe I got a great education there. I will say that the math faculty is hardcore, and if you're not a math person it can be hard to keep up. I was briefly an English with Teaching Certification major, but reverted to plain English after attempting a class called Math for Elementary School Teachers, which was far harder than college algebra. The teacher was unhelpful and elitist, treating me like a moron for having trouble with the problems. SO. All that said, the English and history faculty are great, I enjoyed my science class there, and I took statistics through the psychology department (NOT the math dept) and enjoyed that teacher as well. There are a lot of great things about Lamar and I'm happy I went there."

  • Degree: Graphic Design
  • Graduation Year: 2012
"I can only speak to my experience, and in my experience college was hugely beneficial for me. I think that many would argue that art school isn't necessary for graphic designers, and the skills needed to succeed in the industry can be acquired through online tutorials, self-teaching, etc. I would counter and say that it is paramount to build a foundation of history in the field in order to have a better understanding of the principles of design, and to put yourself in an environment where your work is consistently critiqued by peers."
