I completed an online Master's degree in School Counseling with the U of Southwest. I chose this program because I am living in Europe, and needed to find a program that didn't require me to be in a 'cyber' classroom during specific times of the day. The professors were all very accessible and responsive and the coursework was interesting and well delivered. Additionally, the registrar department was exceptionally helpful and kind.
Review University of the Southwest
This so far has been my first semester at the University of the Southwest. I am so glad I started to go here. They offer me a program which is called NExT. new experienced teachers aids. This is where I am working at the school and it is going towards some of my credit hours. Every time I have had a question about the school it was quickly answered. Another thing I appreciate is that it is Christian based. I was completely discouraged with starting school and I believe I was directed towards this school. I was discouraged because I have a 4 year old daughter and it is stressful at times to work and go to school. I didn't know when I would have time for her. Thank God it has all worked out thus far greatly.!
I believe what makes University of the Southwest unique was the fact that everyone on campus is an athlete. Walking around from class to class, you know everyone; it makes it a whole lot easier to adapt because you have a lot of things in common.
