Major: Education (This Major's Salary over time)
I am finishing my seconmd year here and I mist say that my exerience has not been worth the money(well that's a tad harsh, but in reality it is kind of a waste…only kind of). I am majoring in secondary eduation and although, the program itself isn't all that shabby the teachers and TA's are full of it. They act as though they are perfect people living in a perfect world. Evertything revolves around them! If one goes in to ask for help they either will not be avaiable or too "busy"…YA RIGHT. One of my professors claimed that he had an important meeting to atttend and that we would have to postpone our "study session." Little did he know that I was in sitting right outside of his classroom and not once did he ever leave to go to an important meeting. But on the other hand the program itself isn't as bad as one might think. Some…only some of the perfessors are caring and compassionate! But the one's who are are fairly decent always have classes that are filled to just abut max. compacity. They will always be open for study sessions and meetings and their TA's are really quite helpfull!!! Annnnndddd, the work is pretty managable, so if your worried about the course worl/load don't be! :) Hope this helps
