Major: Education (This Major's Salary over time)
Given that I had some very bad experiences in undergradute school (Was not satisfied, programs elsewhere were usless, and I simply felt unprepared with a BA in business) the graduate programs of Webster provided a sense of solidarity. I had a greater understanding of the real world after complteion. However, I continue to struggle at finding success in the real world as a result of my degrees. However, the graduate programs (MA in Human Resources and EdS in Adult Education) did provide a level of maturity which I can utilize to counterbalance this somewhat. The EdS program at Webster is phenomenal. I had been greatly impressed with how welcoming the program had been to a student that pursued it as early in thier career as I, and that also had unique intentions. This is the kind of educational institution that will allow self-directed learning. If a student can generate a reasonable plan for which they will endeavour a program, and uphold the requirements of its essential functions, Webster will allow for their creativity. This is not a run of the mill educational system, not at least in its graduate component. I felt quite satisfied with the interaction, and personalization that Webster provided and its oppurtunity to become involved in the campus in a way that is different than most schools. For students who are underprivliged, the campus cares alot and they really do help a needy student achieve thier best. Few schools even discuss the Americans with Disabilities Act, yet Webster holds failthfully to such an important piece of equal oppurtunity. Do students with special needs have to work hard? Sure, there isn't any compromise to the academic integrity and rigor, but the diversity policy is certainly one of inclusiveness and universal design. Few schools actually plan to ensure the maximized potential of ALL its students. Webster does not only envision academic growth for students with special needs, but a pathway to making the most of one's challanges. There is some distance between certain student groups and others, theater and dance students are often very closed from the others. I have this expereince as I enrolled in a few dance courses while attending a early entry graduate program (I was 21-22 then so this made sense). Yet I realized a complete difference amongst certain programs. Yes, there remains some elitism in the culture of students. However, this is not the manner in which the cmapus is run. In my time at Webster, I knew the faces of college services by name and they trully apprecaited my presence as a student (financial aid business office, public safety, groundskeeping, facilities, food service). They were some of the kindest people in my life expereince. Webster also has a great work study program and is very generous with funds. I am still not without challanges in nmy life, however, Webster can take a marginal person and truly place them on the path to flourish, even if they don't make a plethora of money subsequent to graduation. Parents, if you have a son or daughter with special needs that needs a supportive structure, consider this school. Students, if you want a real world experience, that puts diversity right at your doorstep while you pursue an education, you too should also consider going here. Internationalism and diversity is truly the promotion of Webster and the really do live up to it.
