BEWARE!! Do not waste your time or money on Walden University!! I have had an extensive amount of experience with this online university. Over 10yrs. I received my M.S. in Psychology and am nearing completion of my Ph.D. in Health Psychology. I have to say my master's process was met with supportive and knowledgeable faculty that guided me and moved me along in a timely fashion toward graduation within 3yrs. The Ph.D. program however, is a complete and utter failure and nightmare. I am a professional and a therapist with a private practice for over 5yrs. The sheer arrogance and abusive behaviors allowed by dissertation committees at Walden is appalling! I had to fire my first committee members due to their stalling, run around, incompetence and forgetting what they even had me revise! All the while happily taking my money. The next committee was abusive, minimized my concerns when addressed, dismissive, and utterly unsupportive. This is the SAME committee that approved one of my colleagues all the way to IRB only to have IRB say "Walden doesn't allow that type of study"!!! Are you kidding me? Why didn't the faculty know? Why did they string her along for 2yrs? She's in a class action suit now and I wish her the best. I was determined not to let Walden get the best of me and am powering on! In this last stage of URR review after my study is completed, the URR points out many sections in chpts 1-3 (proposal stage) that she wants included and rewritten AFTER full review and approval by THREE faculty! When asked how was my proposal passed by three faculty mbrs when sections of the proposal that are required are NOT in there, they had nothing to say! So four years of run around, many thousands of dollars in debt and I'm still fighting Walden to complete! When taking my legitimate concerns to the program director, he consistently minimized and dismissed me as "overreacting". It's a farce. They are very unprofessional. They hold the student to a high standard but many faculty don't even know their employer's own policies to justify their sitting on a diss committee! Outrageous! Do NOT waste your time. Go to a reputable school!!
