University of the Incarnate Word Reviews
Love this school. It's a private college with small campus and lower student to teacher ratio, which means you can get more one-on-one help than if you went to a huge public school. I really like the opportunities this school presents. Career fairs, job fairs, seminars, tons of clubs, independent studies, internship opportunities. Even just talking to your professors. There are many chances to learn all about your field and even get your foot through the door by taking up all the opportunities advertised all throughout campus. With the amount of connections you can get from the college and people there, there's no excuse to not be able to network and make the most of your time there. As for the biology major itself, it's not the best in the state or nation, but its far from being the worst. I found it fairly rigorous and learned a lot. Get the education your program requires, but definitely take up those internships and networking chances as well. Biology has a lot of those. Lastly, the campus is very cozy. It's surrounded by nature. During the Christmas holidays, things really kick off, with festivals and colorful lights put up everywhere on campus. Overall, I loved my time here. It was great academically and socially. I do not regret a single thing after having graduated from here.
UIWs School of Professional Studies (SPS) is a great experience. It can be challenging since you are more than likely full-time employed as well as studying full time. It is accelerated in nature with 8 week course. With all that said it is TOTALLY beneficial when you walk away with a private school degree that stands out from the rest. The professors are all highly knowledgeable in their respective field and have a passion to make sure you understand what is going on as well as teaching you what real world application will be. If you are looking for a challenge and a way to make yourself better - UIW is the way to go!
UIW is a wonderful and interactive program that prepares you as a critical thinker to care for patients. The professors are knowledgeable and assist you through your journey. Nursing is not easy, but UIW is exceptional at preparing you for the real world in health care
Exceptional school with professors that challenge their students to develop innovative ways to solve relevant and complex issues found in today's business environment. Curriculum has equipped me with the skill set to go beyond typical business parameters by contributing creative solutions, exposing talents within my employees, and building self-managing teams. Truly happy about the value of my education from this institution.
This school is definitely very involved with the community. They are growing so rapidly ! Almost every degree here is highly recognized. From business, to even fashion design. With all of the clubs and organizations that they have you'll be able to fit in somewhere. Even at orientation they encourage new students to attend certain events so they can meet other students. The classes are the perfect size and you really get that one on one with professors. This is also very beneficial when you are looking for letters of recommendation and the professor knows who you are. If I could relive my 4 years again I so would. I highly recommend this school.
UIW ADCAP program is perfect for people who work full time and have a family. The classes are small and there are many campus sites you can attend. This was a perfect choice for me, I would recommend ADCAP program for people trying to go back to school.
I am currently enrolled in the online Healthcare Administration program. The school is expensive with the current tuition at approximately $2000 per class for non-goverment employees. Financial aid (other than loans) is pretty much nonexistent for grad students. The workload is challenging, but doable with a job and other priorities.
