  • Degree: Education Administration
"I've obtained both a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in education administration. It's my psychology degree that afforded me pointed and needed insights to better understand and stabilize my grasp about the varied negative, trivial and disruptive dynamics, ills and dysfunctions within me, my family and my housing projects and surrounding communities of others. I was then equipped with a burning passion to help other youth and families overcome the woes within, as well as within their toxic and dysfunctio family, as well as within their community. To do so within a more concentrated arena, I used my psychology to enter teaching at the high school level in special education, later taught AP classes, business marketing and eventually used my master in education administration to become a school level administrator at the high school level, to more expand my service from more students to helping educational systems to better equip teachers and staff to better service, reach, equip and prepare our youth to become proficient, efficient and sufficient in applying soft and hard skills, within work force industries!!!"

"Texas A&M University at Commerce is a relatively small college located in a town that can hardly be classified as a town. The town has one Walmart, one Brookshires, and plenty of fast food. Not exactly the college students dream. Nonetheless, whatever the environment around the school lacks, the schools environment itself makes up for. TAMUC is a college that truly does care for its students and their students education. Opportunities both social and curricular are abundant, so youll always have an opportunity to make friends or network. Or maybe you just want to enjoy the free stuff without having to join any organizations or clubs? Thats fine, organizations give out free stuff all the time on campus! The cafeteria is a must because its buffet style with actual really good food. And you can stay all day if you wanted to (it has really good WiFi access). The library staff is very friendly with whatever you need, and they are always so helpful if you need to find resources for papers or projects. There are even little study rooms that you can rent to study with a group or by yourself without being disturbed by others around you. There are two, count them TWO, Starbucks on campus, and other eateries. I would absolutely encourage potential students to at least tour the campus. The campus has such a warm feel to it. Student Accounts and Financial Aid are always so helpful with any needs or questions you may have, and the tuition rates are competitive to the big brand schools such as Texas A&M University or University of Texas. I love the school, and I love my memories I have there."

"Professors accused of sexual harassment, rude and unprofessional. Some of them without pedagogical strategies or enough knowledge. Miserable salary for graduate students. There are better choices available in the Dallas- Fort worth area. I am considering to apply to some of them for my PhD."

"You will not find another AACSB (gold standard) accredited college for this price. Some of that is reflected in the quality of the online portal, and the classes are quite full so it can be a little tough to get instructor interaction. However, it has not been a problem for me. The level of rigor is a good blend since I continue to be a working professional as well as having a busy personal and family life. I think that's the critical piece, you can take these classes, and learn everything that you need to know about business decision-making without enormous sacrifices. If you are dependent on an MBA to radically change the course of your life, then you should probably aim a little upwards; but if you are simply looking to learn about business decision-making (particularly if, like me, you are in the military with no expsosure to fundamentals of accounting, finance, and marketing) then this is right up your alley. Highly recommend!"

"1. Very low cost degree, 2. Self Taught, feedback is 48-72 hours, and is only as quality as the question you ask. It Professor thinks it part of the syllabus, they will direct you to the syllabus or student discussion chats prior to contacting them."

  • Degree: Technology Management
"I am an international student came here to study masters in technology management program. Firstly the program " Masters in Technology Management" doesn't have anything tech in the course. Most of the syllabus revolves around drones, project management and leadership. The program doesn't have any internship or CPT which is a huge disadvantage. There are no scholarships available for this course. This is more like a mini PHD where in you have to do so much research on several topics which are absolutely waste and have no relevance in the practical world. Neither is this degree valued for getting a job. The professors are only bothered about having research in APA format and doing coursework like a research with no relevance to the practical corporate world. As an international student, i took this course with a hope to get some practical exposure like internship and getting placed in a technology company. But i have wasted all my TIME, MONEY and EFFORT on this useless course. The professors are very much involved in their research work and least interested in teaching or helping students be prepared for corporate world."

"This school is awesome! Top notch education that prepared me for life during and after 20 years of military service. I was most impressed by the involvement of the professors in student success. Most of the classes were very engaging, and the immediate feedback from professors and peers enhanced the quality of study. Even while completing rigorous work, the amount of support I received was very encouraging and made the toughest assignments enjoyable to experience. The team projects placed students in a situation to, not only hold themselves accountable, but hold their peers accountable which is not an easy thing to do sometimes. However, great relationships formed and a sense of accomplishment shared by others who assisted in meeting goals can not be matched. I have definitely come away from my program with a positive view of my career, which is just getting started (again)."

"Texas A&M University - Commerce made my online time earning my Bachelors degree accessible and achievable. Yes there were many rigorous days where I wish I could sit down with my professor face to face, but if you have resources of your own outside of class that helps too. As a working single mother of a a little boy, I really enjoyed that I was given the freedom to be as creative as possible in my class. I loved my online time at TAMUC. I felt so welcome on the campus when I finally got to visit it during graduation weekend. TAMUC is home, GO LIONS!!"

"Texas A & M University Commerce is an excellent campus if you are looking for lots of options. There are several courses that you can choose to take online or in the classroom. The campus diversity is widespread with students of all origins, ages, and religions. I meet colleagues all the time that went to school here and it is great for networking with other businesses as well."

  • Degree: Counseling
"Beginning the master's degree process was terrifying to me at first, especially the interview to even get chosen to be in the graduate program! After my interview for the program I quickly learned that this was a school I wanted to be a part of because even within the interview the professors had about 3 people at a time come in so already I felt a little weight lifted off my shoulders by being surrounded by fellow interviewees. Another wonderful aspect of the interview was that the interviewers clearly wanted everyone to feel comfortable and succeed during the interview process and throughout the grad school program. My first day of class (Intro into Counseling) was another intimidating moment I remember which was also met by compassion and empathy from my professors. Each professor I encountered my first day (and all throughout the program) really worked hard to help everyone be successful during each semester and happily answered any questions anyone had. I always felt comforted knowing that if I ever needed help that my professors were only an e-mail or a phone call away! As I look back on the last 2 years I've been in the program, I am so thankful for all the fellow grad students I've met and made connections with, all the faculty that helped me develop as a person as well as a counselor, and for all the courses that worked well with my schedule! If I had to do it over again, there's no question that I would go to Texas A&M University-Commerce again!"

"The university is smaller than most, but it has its perks. Due to the smaller class size of about 30-40 students, you wont be seen as just a number. It is very easy to get involved with a professor's research, and the science curriculum is challenging. The only major negative quality is the lack of nightlife due to the size of the city, but if you have a good group of friends it wont be a major issue. The faculty and security are very polite and helpful. If you need to jump start your vehicle or unlock your car due to leaving the keys in the car, they will help you out should you need it."

"The Chemistry department at TAMUC is a small program, so the professors know you and are very helpful. There are lots of research openings in labs, and professors are always willing to accept and train students in their labs to hone their skills. There are a plethora of scholarships available specifically for chemistry students. The graduate students have the opportunity to teach and mentor undergrads in lab. If you are looking for a graduate program where you have the guidance of your mentor/PI but are able to work independently on your research, then TAMUC is the place for you!"

"I really enjoy the MSW program at A &M Commerce. The professor's all have a wealth of knowledge that they are willing to share with the students. The class work is experienced based teachings and knowledge, not just text book reading. The professors provide real-life situational cases for us to evaluate and learn from. Instructors provide feedback to help improve our knowledge base."

"I chose to complete my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Finance. While the courses were tough, you get a lot of information and education out of them and really apply that skill set to the jobs you work. I currently am going back to complete my Master's degree in Accounting. I plan to sit for the CPA exam as well. The decision to return for my Master's degree is solely to earn enough to start a family. Currently I do not."

"Getting a degree is nice but it doesn't guarantee you a job. Don't "pick something that interests you"" or "do what you like to do", those are hobbies, pick something that's always in demand and can pay the bills. Then do your hobbies when you clock out."

  • Degree: MBA in Technology Management
"First of all, I am an active duty member of the Navy and I did a lot of research when I decided to get an MBA. Being a Texas resident but having to rely on tuition assistance from the military I chose TAMUC because of price, AACSB accreditation, and reputation. Also, this was one of the few schools in Texas that had an entirely online MBA option. I started the program in the Fall of 2012 and completed my degree in Fall 2015. This program is no "walk in the park" especially for someone like me working full time and having family obligations but it is very attainable. There is a lot of work involved and I have learned so much from some very talented and dedicated professors. Although the program is online, most of the instructors require live interaction via ClassLive or even web camera conferences so TAMUC really utilizes the latest technology to bring the student into the classroom. I really just can't say enough positive things about their MBA program. Don't get all wrapped up in MBA rankings. I mean sure if you can afford the time and money to attend HBC, Stern, or Wharton, do it. But if you're like me, wanted a sound education to complement an established technical and professional background, this is an excellent program. Take my word for it- TAMUC's MBA program is GROSSLY under-ranked."

"The program was very easy to get into and I currently know and have known many students who graduated from the program who were unqualified to say the least. I feel some of the professors I have encountered care more about churning out research than being an effective educator, and the quality of my education has suffered for it. Also, I have had a few classes "taught" by professors who readily admitted they have no experience in the subject matter. I am currently enrolled in such a class; we are currently past midterms and we have yet to have a test or assignment, probably because the professor has canceled class all but two times. Making an A requires minimal effort in most classes, which frustrates me greatly. I had hoped graduate school would be a challenge, but I find myself bored more often than not. I have only had a small handful of classes to-date that have interested me. I enjoyed this university as an undergraduate, but as a graduate student, I wish I had gone elsewhere."
