Creighton University Graduate Reviews

10 reviews
I choose to further my academic pursuits at Creighton University because it infuses education with Ignatian principles, expecting students to reflect on their local and global impact. Its O.T. Doctorate program requires research and clinical competence, and I look forward to evidencing my professional contributions, along with applying to the American Occupational Therapy Association’s Fellowship program.
Service, justice, and cura personalis are the strongest of Creighton’s Ignatian values within my vocation. From my experiences at Creighton University John P. Schlegel Center for Service and Justice (SCSJ), Project Homeless, and the Creighton at Highlander site, I consistently include my family in new volunteer opportunities. For example, we have recently expanded our church youth group activities, and my children value their experience volunteering at Creighton at Highlander.

I am a current graduate student at Creighton University and I have absolutely loved my experience so far. The professors are extremely helpful and have a desire to see you succeed in your program. The classes are challenging but are understanding that you also have other things on your plate besides school. I have yet to talk to anyone on campus staff that is not friendly and helpful! Creighton is definitely a great choice for an education. They are flexible with a lot of online choices and are in a great location if students want a a bigger city experience without it being overwhelming.
Creighton's pharmacy program is lacking. The professors are older and not completely up to date on technology or learning technique. Medicinal chemistry is still taught here, which I disagree with, seeing as most pharmacy schools have completely eliminated this program. Also, it is not a subject needed for taking the naplex. The distance students, like myself, feel secondary to campus students. Overall, this program needs an overhaul. New teachers should be brought in, or the material should be displayed in a fresh new way to keep their pharmacy students interested and to remain relevant to current topics. I would not recommend this pharmacy school, seeing as how there are better schools available. The only plus side to Creighton, is the distance program, which allows students to watch lectures, complete tests, and submit homework from home.
