The professors in my program are all highly qualified in their fields and have very respectable credentials. They are also currently employed in the relevant fields, keeping their courses current with up-to-date research. The students are all very experienced and diverse, creating an opportunity for excellent interaction on the message boards (which replaces in class discussions). The work can be challenging, as you must keep pace on the condensed courses (eight weeks, rather than 16), but if you apply yourself ? you can get a lot of out each course. The syllabus is always straightforward, so you know what will be expected from you during the eight weeks ? if you don?t think you can handle that work at present; you have the option to drop from the course without penalty within the first week.
I am considering going back for an undergraduate certificate for more diverse professional development. Highly recommend if you are the type of person who can handle a self-study course.
Another good thing, it is easy to manage your enrollment and student service stuff.
Now on to the not so good stuff. The involvement by the professors were less than optimal. The party line seems to be just do the work and get on with it. It is difficult to do the work without clear directions. Attempts to contact professors seemed to be difficult and it seem to be a waste of their time.
The school is in a transition period after accreditation and the current students are receiving the brunt of the pain. My experience is to a limited amount of classes before I could prove the problems were a trend. I elected to depart for another school and program.Students often emailed each other behind the scenes trying to figure out what is going on or is expected.
