I just moved to Alamosa. I applied for a job as Assistant Professor. I got an interview immediately. I was told the interview would not go over 15 minutes and I would not have an opportunity to ask questions. I was asked four questions if I remember correctly. The questions, read from cue cards by the committee, were vague, ambiguous, and had nothing to do with my ability as a Professor. No questions regarding my activities as an Assistant Professor, nothing about my research agenda, nothing about my service work, nothing about my teaching philosophy, etc... Basically, this was a profiling interview. I eventually reached out to them as they never contacted me again as they said they would. I was told they were busy, they made an "unofficial" offer to someone else, and that was all they could tell me. I am relieved I was not selected. Unprofessional to say the least and it felt clickish, inbred, and homegrown.
Teachers are responsive and the school offers many online courses. It is possible to earn several different degrees in an online format.
Adams offers many courses through an online format. Staff and teachers have all been responsive and pleasant. Enrollment process can be a pain. It takes them months to process payment, meanwhile I'm wondering if I got courses or missed the semester.
It is a small town vibe if that something that you like. Not much to do but outdoor activities. Overall very good school.
The online learning experience at Adams state was excellent in my opinion. The communication between student and teacher was very good in my personal opinion.
I took a class online this last semester. I liked how easy it was to access the courses and how understanding the professors are. I also really appreciate how willing the school is to work with you in that area.
I'm currently, but soon not to be getting my MA in clinical mental health. No flexibity or help finding a practicum. The leads they provide have dead links and the same institutions on there multiple times. They do not lift a finger to help. Right now, trying to find a practicum site in the age of Covid is next to impossible. They have no advice so how do they think I'm come up with something magical. Now I have to sit out a year just to go through this for an internship. They leave you hung out to dry. Classes are a joke and nothing but discussion boards. I was trying to make a career change but this is not the way to do it. You get nothing for your money. Who sits around for a year to catch practicum class again. They want me to waste a whole year taking 1 class per semester. Do not go here unless you want to be forced to find opportunities by yourself with no support. I should have taken my money and invested it, I'd be better off. Stay away at all costs.
No help with practicum opportunities regardless of who you talk to. Classes are self taught and I never even saw some professors. I couldn't find a practicum site, so I have to sit out a year. Doesn't seem to matter that there is a pandemic going on. Make money off of some other fool, not me. Stear clear.
Due to covid, we had a lot of online classes. It was an optional choice. There were certain days that students would go in depending on the last name. Most of the time students would stay home since they had that option. I would say the professors did an amazing job with keeping the students connected both at home and in class. There was never a moment where the teachers had forgotten about the students online. Instead it was the same experience.
The online experience is really easy. I find it super easy to figure it out and find everything i need to turn in
I like everything, but the students they are rude. The professors are really nice and work with your schedule. The covid regulations are good as well
Adams State is an all inclusive University where the Professors truly care about the education and success of the student.
On-line classes are delivered in an easy to understand format, and the Professors are available for questions and feedback.
I was in the online Clinical mental health program and it was honestly a joke. There were some nice teachers but I learned next to nothing and the intensives were not helpful at all and down right unprofessional I felt I was being attacked as a person. Give this one a pass.
The staff really cares about the students. They truly try to help students understand the material and do all they can to help people get a degree.
The class homework was all online and it works well. Cant complain at all about how it works! Really great way to turn in assignments.
Online courses at Adams State University are quite frankly a joke. Each week the instructor posts a 5-10 minute video explaining what is due, from there it is a self-taught program. I am in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program and each week we are expected to read 80-100 pages of the textbook, plus 2-3 articles sent out as old PDF scans, watch a youtube video that's anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours long, then participate in a discussion. Multiply this times the number of classes you're taking. THERE ARE NO VIDEO LECTURES PROVIDED. I am a visual learner and do not learn well from reading textbooks. Also, there is no standard format for using Blackboard, some instructors post extra assignments (not in the syllabus) in the Announcements or Discussion section instead of the Learning Modules, so many of us have missed assignments. If I didn't need the Master's degree to become licensed, I'd be better off watching free lectures online. Can't believe I'm paying for this.
