University of Nebraska at Kearney Reviews
The program is not as advertised. The Online Master's in Biology was advertised to me as a working persons degree program. There is a tremendous amount of focus on "busy work", such as discussions, that are run by students and not the professors. There was very little feedback on these discussions and one is always left wondering if the information posted was accurate since the professors did not weigh in or lead the discussions. There were several times when students posted incorrect information or there were competing ideas with no final word on what was accurate. The program is highly based on research, reading papers, busy work, and offered very little practical knowledge or skills. If you did the "busy work" and participated you could get a B in most classes without actually gaining much knowledge or understanding. The information presented was mostly based on regurgitating that information back for a grade without understanding mechanisms or how to apply that knowledge in a practical way. If you are wanting to go into a practical job and not into academics, choose another program.
