The faculty is not on the same page and you will more than likely have to take courses that are not published as a course a requirement. The faculty is unhelpful and unprofessional in most cases with the exception of a select few. I do not feel that the education I received was worth my time or money. The faculty does not support working student or students who work through college. Most professors will ask you to reduce your hours or give you a hard time about it.

UMass Dartmouth is the worst school in all of southeastern Mass. The college is crumbling; it's literally falling apart. Buildings leak, linoleum is lifting off the floors, desks are broken. It's a disaster.

There is no academic rigor at the school, especially in the English department and program. They literally let ANYONE enroll and push them along until they drop out or flunk out in higher level courses.

Faculty is more than 80% part timers who are working at other schools or jobs because they don't hire full timers. The full timers they do hire are not interested in student success, only their own retirement.

The school is tired and lacking direction. Students can get a much better education and experience if they drive 30 minutes north to Bridgewater State University. I've studied at both and BSU is leaps and bounds ahead of UMD.UMD will take your money and leave you floundering. I wish I had never gone there.
