Great program while working! I was able to set aside school from work without feeling drained or overwhelmed. This program came with a lot of educated professors who were experienced in the course subject. I appreciated the faith based background and how faith was incorporated with the academics. I absolutely loved the hybrid option, but still met in person. I have made lifelong friends and connections from this program.

Communication between staff and students at the school of education is awful! The staff turn over rate is abysmal. No wonder no one ever has a clue what is going on! In my two years at a student in their graduate education program it’s been one major issue on their part after another. Completely unprofessional.
