University of New Haven Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
My degree in fire science administration didn't help me immediately in my career, but feel I feel it helped me to progress into a well rounded and capable leader. I feel it certainly gave me a step up on other candidates for promotion. The exposure to professionals who valued education early in my career was very helpful in developing me as a professional.
My experience at the University of New Haven is something that I would not trade for anything. Every professor that I encountered has incredible experience in the field they are teaching and to this day I hear their names mentioned outside of the school's environment. The education itself is invaluable and a degree from UNH has served me quite well post graduation. The small campus next to a big city feel serves the perfect purpose for outside of class. You have the opportunities to get to know your peers and grow with them while simultaneously being next to the beautiful bustling city of New Haven. As a Criminal Justice student, I was given multiple internship and networking opportunities to help guide me past graduation. Aside from the expenses and a few administrative frustrations that are common on most campuses. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is pursuing a career in the field of Criminal Justice
The college is recently accredited with the AACSB. This board will enhance resumes for future career opportunities because employer's will see that the student attended an university which is prestigious and has a strong curriculum. The University of New Haven, although known for Criminal Justice, has a heavy focus on business subjects as well.
If you are interested in pursing your degree in Criminal Justice or Forensic Science I suggest attending this university. You will have an ample amount of resources if you are interested in pursing a career with the government or any job that allows for you use these degrees. Any other major I would highly suggest looking into other universities. At the University of New Haven the curriculum is self driven. You have to stay on top of what courses you need to graduate because a lot of the time your advisor will give you a course schedule and then next semester, when policies change for your major, you will essentially fall a semester behind. You have to search for internships on your own that will advance in your chosen career path. UNH is a developing university and is looking for new opportunities to maximize their revenue so essentially they are more focused on getting new students in on their increased tuition than keeping their third and fourth year students around. I managed to get a great job after college but I worked tirelessly all four years to ensure my post grad fate. I only worked jobs in college that were relevant to my major and refused to do anything else. Overall the university is okay for those who are pursuing anything other than CJ or FS but you have to push all four year on your own to ensure that you end up where you want to. The price tag may not be worth it however. Do your research. Talk to current students and see if they disagree with my review and if they do UNH may be the perfect fit for you.
The professor within the psychology department are really helpful! Definitely have a lot to offer, they are very knowledgeable and make the classes exciting. Especially History of Systems, Professor Michaud made it fun and we wanted to be in class. Melissa Whitson is one of the best advisors at the school! Very helpful! Proud to be an alum of UNH! I enjoyed my stay, from academics all the way to the athletics department! Thank you everyone for an amazing 4 years of my life.
Thought it was OK. Kind of expensive even with the reduction in price for being a Biology Dept. TA. Higher degree likely helped me get my job in the field, but as a public servant the salary isn't very high and paying off student loans was challenging.
Great college with very knowledgable professors. Grad courses can be challenging especially in applied practice classes but this will only help improve your skills and knowledge.
The Henry Lee College is very helpful and is pretty much a big family. They are always friendly and push you to succeed. Personally I always had questions and concerns because I am someone that worries about everything, but my advisors were always there to talk over everything with me and to calm me down. I double majored like most forensic science do and they made sure that I was able to complete both degrees simultaneously and in a timely fashion.
