Utah State University Reviews
My experience with Utah State University was fantastic. I changed my major a few semesters in, and my experience with both of the advisers I had were positive ones, especially with the adviser for the Family Life Studies degree. Sarah is always willing to help and answer questions. She truly cares about the students and is always happy to help! Though I had some professors I did not particularly love, most of my professors were helpful and cared about my success as a student.
I think professors are good,but university staff dont know idea what do they do.In fact,Financial department gave me awful wrong information and admission department was also didnt have enough information about admitting processes and each time asked me a new document,they mostly dont pick up the phone and I think they dont feel any responsibility for their job and studens
It was nice to have the flexibility of an online program with options to attend in-person classes through live feed but some of the curriculum was a little under whelming. I drove to a local college to take timed tests and interacted with other students through discussion forums. I enjoyed the course materials for the most part, but wished for more challenging material. Overall a great experience though.
USU has an amazing online second bachelors degree for Communication Disorders and Deaf Education. While working full time I was able to go to school part-time and work at my own pace. As an out-of-state student, there are no out of state fees making it easier to pay out of pocket. All the teachers I have had been very helpful and quick to answer any question within a day or two. There are lectures, readings, homework and tests to help learn the material effectively and efficiently. I would highly recommend this program to anyone thinking about pursuing Speech Language Pathology.
Utah State University was a great school and their online program for a degree in Family Life Studies was educational and convenient. It was nice to be able to take all the necessary classes online since I was not near the campus and couldn't uproot my family to continue my education. The professors at USU were great to work with and were very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. Also the advisors were very educated and there to help make sure you had the information you needed.
USU was a great school that offered a variety of programs that met my needs as a distance learning student. They were also the most reasonable price wise for the type of degree I was working toward.
This was a completely online program. Since this program partially specializes in eLearning and online learning their online courses are well developed. You feel a sense of community with each class you take and never feel like you are alone. Most of every learning theory, recourse, technology, and strategy I learned I was able to apply directly back into my classroom for my students. My teaching has been greatly enhanced by what was taught in this program. It was affordable and there were almost always small grants helping me out along the way. I also feel like I have more open doors of opportunity. If I do not want to continue as a public educator, I feel like this program has made it possible for me to easily pursue another career and potentially make more money. Instructional designers are in high demand and so this is a hot degree right now. Cooperate and education institutions are constantly hiring and I would get at least 2 emails a week from USU faculty and staff spreading the word of a new job opportunity that was sent their way.
The program helped me learn how to better my teaching and apply new research based practices. I understand now, where the profession of being a teacher has come from and I understand better the challenges that are associated with the profession. The classes have taught me how to be a better instructor in reading and writing, how to work with students that come from diverse backgrounds, and how to differentiate instruction to try to meet the needs of all my students.
I am a graduate student at Utah State University working toward a master's degree in Education with an emphasis on School Guidance and Counseling. I chose to apply to Utah State University because USU is one of the very few institutions that offers a degree for school counseling and they have multiple off-site campuses that utilize interactive technology that allows people like me who don't live in Logan and have day jobs be able to attend school and work toward a degree. The program has been structured with the demographics of its students in mind. The courses are challenging but doable and the content is very applicable to school counseling. The faculty and staff are very accessible to us students and have been very helpful whenever I have had a question. I do not regret applying to USU at all. It is a great school.
USU's online classes and instructors are good. I have no problems with the COMD degree online program. What the school fails to mention is how insanely competitive it is to get into a Speech Therapy Grad School Program. Prepare for and take the GRE first, and if you do good enough on that test to be a highly competitive grad school applicant, THEN take the COMD online courses (and get A's). If you can't get your GRE scores around the 65th percentile then you won't get into ANY grad school programs because they have over 100 applicants and maybe 10 or 15 positions available in most any SLP grad school each and every year. Your grad school application has to be strong in EVERY category in order to have a prayer of getting into graduate school. So unless your state hires lots of Speech Therapy Tech's, I wouldn't bother going back to school for a BS in COMD. A BS in COMD is like a BS in Psychology or Sociology or English----these degrees don't get you anywhere near a good paying job when you finish them.
