Major: Education (This Major's Salary over time)
I recently graduated (August 2009)and obtained my Masters of Arts from Capella University. My concentration is Education. I enjoyed this school tremendously. I found it quite challenging and rewarding. I have gained more from the content of Capella's coursework then I did when I attended in-class courses at a major university in Michigan.

In my opinion, an education from Capella is well worth it. However, you must be a self-starter that is disciplined and motivated to work independently. The programs offered are not for those who require structured, in-class lectures.

The instructors are very professional, as well as helpful. They are always willing to assist you with any problems you have in your coursework. In most of my courses, I usually had individual research assignments. I found this aspect of my coursework quite challenging, but it also helped me gain insight and understanding into the subject matter as I advanced through my program. Group coursework is usually assigned, and is well-developed. It has allowed me to gain life-long friends.

Of course, as with any school you attend, you will have some courses you dislike as well as some instructors, as I did. Additionally, Capella's tuition is steep, but in this economy, which college or university isn't?

Overall, I am very satisfied with the education I received from Capella University, and I would highly recommend it to others.
