Pennsylvania State University-World Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
Studying at Penn State World Campus was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I worked abroad teaching English while I went to school; therefore, having set deadlines and being able to study online at any time was extremely important to me. Although it was an online learning environment, there was a lot of support from teachers and a good amount of interaction with other students through group posts. The course materials were also extremely well designed. I liked that most of the courses were not lecture based, but more about reading or finding things out for yourself, reflecting, and completing tasks that utilized that knowledge. It opened my mind to the endless capabilities of online learning, and influenced the direction I have taken with my own teaching. My degree was in Letters, Arts, & Sciences, which is similar to a liberal arts degree. I was able to choose the courses I felt were most meaningful to me (outside of the required courses for the major) and submit a proposal for that degree. The knowledge and experiences I obtained during my time at Penn State are priceless to me. It changed the way I looked at the world and how I see myself. I went back to school after many years, and the information available when I first went to college was nothing compared to what we now have available to us today. This is what showed me the importance of staying current and what ultimately propelled me into becoming a lifelong learner.
I have taken several online courses, and was admittedly intimidated at the idea of attending Penn State, but the Professors are AMAZING and the support received from both instructors and academic counselors is second to none. Perhaps one of the greatest educational experiences I have ever had. Recommended!!!!
