2nd Degree

"I am attending this school to complete my 2nd Master's degree. There are some important things to note for grad school at this institution. First, the semesters are short. This means you cover more per class and many students feel very rushed by this approach. Second, this is a program for people who want to hit the major points, get the degree, and move on! It is not like the traditional degrees I have sought and received before, where there was much more theory discussion in addition to application. Third, there seems to be lots of comradely between undergraduate students and international graduate students. As a domestic graduate student, I feel disconnected here. The school is good for people who don't necessarily want the traditional school feel and want more current, direct application than future-looking discussion."

"The University of Dallas is one of the few remaining institutions where a core curriculum, which bestows a well-rounded education, exists. That being said, any education at any institution is only as valuable as the student allows it to be-- the University of Dallas is a wellspring of opportunity; one simply has to fully engage in the core and own their education."

"The school is really nice. It is located in Dallas city, a tourist city. It has good weather, not too cold in winter and not too hot in summer. The teachers are really nice, friendly and helpful. Its facilities are second to none. It has lots of foreigners. "

"The University of Dallas is a Catholic Institution of higher learning located in Irving, Texas. It is an AACSB accredited institution with excellent student to lecturer ratio. The lecturers are well trained, and very qualified to teach in their respective disciplines. The various degree programs blend and take into consideration both Practitioners versus Academicians view points. As a result, you are able to quickly apply the classroom knowledge in solving the workplace problems/tasks."

"The university of Dallas will make you think. The core is rigorous but the satisfaction you feel completing it is unexplainable. There is just something in knowing that you have followed in the intellectual footsteps of many great scholars from yesteryear."

"The University of Dallas is an incredible academic, social, and faith-filled community. The core curriculum and the integrity of the academic programs prepared me to apply my liberal arts degree to my career and the real world. The study-abroad Rome program was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I strongly recommend this school."

"UD is heavily focused on academics and while the extracurriculars are important, the principal stance of the school is for students to learn. It will seem that you are overwhelmed with work but the education you receive is top-notch!"

"The psychology program at the University of Dallas is both unorthodox and complimentary to the experimental methodology employed by most public universities. At University of Dallas there is a unique focus on the intentionality of the individual experiencing a meaningful event. While this unique approach may seem detrimental when compared to the quantitative methodology stressed in other institutions, I believe that the University of Dallas provides individuals with a more comprehensive vision of psychology as a whole."

"The Psychology program at the University of Dallas is both slightly unorthodox and yet complementary to the strong quantitative practices commonly taught in most institutions. While I believe the strengths of the university lie in its fresh qualitative perspective and a focus on the intentionality of the individual experiencing meaningful events. While this unique approach may seem detrimental when considering a move to the world of professional psychology, I believe the unique perspective gained here in addition to the strict experimental methodology I obtained in undergraduate studies will make for a unique and well rounded skill set."

"Our graduate program is structured to afford students within specific concentrations a holistic view and understanding of the world and their disciplines in it. Though some classes are not offered at conducive times for those who work full-time, instructors are accessible and attempt to accommodate whenever it is possible."

"A major pro of this graduate program is that it is small, so students receive close assistance from faculty members. Students are also able to get to know both faculty members and fellow graduate students well. The curriculum is very challenging, forcing students to grow and learn in leaps and bounds. A major con of this program is that the facilities are somewhat small and crammed. Art graduate students have semi-private studios which are somewhat small, therefore making it difficult to create large, complex work (unless you are a sculptor)."

"Pros: I believe UD offers a convenient yet challenging curriculum. Our subject matter has been very interesting to the point that it stimulates group discussion even for someone like myself who doesn't speak much. The campus has a warm and inviting atmosphere that makes me happy about my selection. Cons: The only con I can find within UD is there lack of social activities. I’m currently completing my Master’s Degree so I've already experienced the whole undergraduate thing. But I have found the campus to be quite dead during the day which would be a very distributing thing when I think back to my undergraduate experience!"

"The Master's Program at UD has made my experience very rewarding. The course schedule is fast paced with intensive readings but the professors are friendly and understanding to the demands of a working student. I have been able to obtain additional understanding of the concepts and theories through in class discussions and one-on-one interactions with the professors following or before class. I am very grately for the opportunity of obtaining my Masters at the University of Dallas!"

"The pros of my graduate program is that the advisors go out of their way to help link students with internships and potential jobs. The cons are that the classes that you would love to have on online are only offered on campus and are once a week for three and a half hours."

"There are few places where Truth is taught. At U.D. TRUTH is taught... or was taught. I think it must be still taught, as cistercians help out there. You little little kids... I was one once... You need to hear the voice of Jesus' Yoda! If yer rich daddy can pay for it... be there, do that!!! Alumni..circa early 1980something... Listen to the monks. YOU WILL PROSPER.. . If you can make it happen... GO TO COLLEGE! Learn about what you love! It doesn't matter if you get a "job" in that field! You will be a blessing to everyone you ever meet! The operative term: If you can swing it? Even if debt is involved... if you find the right school... what you learn will never give you a heart attack. There's no more room here... If you can... get some college!!!"

"The graduate program i am pursuing is in the filed of cybersecurity. Its the most important component in todays computer world. cybersecurity plays a very crucial role in functioning of any small or large businesses. the program offered at the University is taught by CISSP certified professionals and is quite competitive. the only disadvantage is that the university does not offer too many options of scholarships for international students."
