Penn State is a great school with multiple campuses, all with a different atmosphere. I enjoyed my campus and working with representatives from all campuses. The Human Development and Family Studies program is a great option for those that want to work in social services or social justice fields but don't want to be stuck in one specialty. It is a very broad, flexible degree that gives you many options when deciding which group or organization you would like to work in.
This is an amazing school with some great teachers. They really care about there students and want them to succeed. They are very helpful in finding internships. They will also help you when looking for a job after graduation, they will help you with everything from how to dress for an interview to filling out your resume.
Penn State is an amazing school. Although University Park may seem like a very large school to most, it becomes small when you become apart of the family there. You will bleed blue and white. The Kinesiology program and it's department are one of a kind. Many of the professors there are doing top-level research and highly regarded in the health and fitness community. If you are choosing this as your major you are certainly going to be among some of the brightest minds in the field.
I had a great experience in this program at Penn State. The department of communications treats its students really well and respectfully. Whenever I had a questions via e-mail, I was always answered in a timely fashion with answers and options. I LOVED my teachers, who always took time to help me and help me better my skills. I am still friends with a few to this day.
Both the English Department in the College of Liberal Arts and the Journalism Department in the College of Communications are well-rounded and student-focused departments. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the university and learning within each of these departments. Both of my degrees opened several doors for me and helped me to hone in on my passions and what I wanted to pursue as a career. The professors and faculty are all intelligent and accomplished people and worked with me to be the best student I could be.
The Psychology program at Penn State is an exceptional one. The best part about this program is the array of different psychology classes you can take, including classes about clinical, counseling, abnormal, social, developmental, perceptual, and organizational psychology (plus many more). I would highly recommend Penn State if you wish to major in Psychology.
The Pennsylvania State University does not only breed some of the most elite caliber students I have ever come across, but they are also some of the most enthusiastic and school spirited individuals. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV and decided to travel almost 3,000 miles to attend college. I wanted nothing to be familiar. Fast forward a couple years after a wonderful graduation, I still come across enthusiastic alumni almost monthly. It astonishes me every time I see a fellow Penn Stater and proudly chant "We are!" as I pass by. I never fail to receive the very familiar response of "Penn State!" with a smile stained on their face. The University has such a togetherness that I long for everyday and I can't wait to experience that with my new school at Arizona State University.
Admissions was attentive and professional. Accessing financial aid, billing, grades, online library, etc., all made simple through one-access point! The online platform, Canvas, very easy to navigate and I recall very few technical outages during my entire 18 months in a master degree program. Program advisor was supportive and responded to calls and emails in a timely manner, easily provided me with the answers I needed. Instructors were professional, challenging, and fair. The course design, lectures, reading material, and assignments were structured in a way that you can feel your knowledge base progressively increasing; you're genuinely learning at PSU World Campus. The veterans program on campus is setting the standard across the nation! The potential for students to engage in university activities and join student organizations is continuously developing and with a passionate university staff helping it along. 4 universities ago, I had not attended one that I would have rated so highly. I have no regret attending PSU World Campus. As a veteran, it was especially helpful based on their military friendly, and I mean TRULY passionate about supporting veteran's higher learning and integrating from military service to civilian life. Find a program! The pricing and overall education experience have been well worth it. PSU is highly reputable.
Penn State is a wonderful school with excellent teachers. The network is so vast. I graduated in 2010 and started my own business. I book clients based solely on the fact that I also went Penn State just like them! I feel that i got a good education with a lot of hands on, real world experience. My classes were also all really small, around 10-20 students once I started my main core classes.
All and all, this was an excellent online program. If you are looking for an easy online degree, you will be sadly mistaken to realize that Penn State will not provide you with the degree. Although an online degree can be challenging, the instructors at Penn State are very understanding of life circumstances and will give you the benefit of the doubt if a crisis arises. I am a Veteran and their Veteran's Service department is outstanding. They always ensured that I had what I needed and I never had any issue with tuition payments. I feel as though I learned a lot during my education at Penn State and I am certainly proud to be a Nittany Lion.
