Student & Graduate Reviews
Proud and Happy Alumna - 1/13/2016
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015
"I did the Bachelor's to Master's course and completed both my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology and my Masters of Science in Human Resource Management. The course work was appropriate for adult students who are serious about achieving their educational goals. Mentors will not hold your hands, just like professors at four year institutions I attended did not hold your hand. I can see this being a bit of a shock if it is a persons initial college experience, or for someone who has attended a community college first (as I did). When I went to another state four-year institution I did feel that the workload and expectations were different than my experiences at community college. I truly believe that without TESU's program I would likely never have completed the BA I started so many years ago; and I am certain a Master's degree would not have been a thought. That said, my family did sacrifice time with me when I had assignments due and more than once, when on vacation, I slipped away to study and turn in assignments. You will have to work at it. This is not a degree mill just sending you a diploma because you paid for tuition. You must be prepared to hunker down, read the texts assigned, participate in the online discussion forums, interact with your mentors and turn in your assignments on time. In the end, I received a degree with tons of practical knowledge of the industry that I could immediately put to use at work and which enabled me to sit for the exams to achieve two professional certificates which are highly recognized in the field. If the education was not up to standard, I would not have been able to pass the professional exams. This is a great school for self-motivated learners who can set a goal and not be distracted from it."
