Montclair State University Reviews

The courses I took were great. I will say that the downside to the Master in General Psychology is that it is the psych program that gets the least attention. The core classes that are shared by other programs are easy to register for, but there were no special topics courses offered and I had to take a class from another program. The issue is more administrative, which is frustrating. If you require I take classes to graduate, offer them!

MSU's online classes gave me the ability as a full time career oriented mother of three to juggle everything in three comfort of my home and in the time I am able to focus on class assignments. Plus my niece attends the graduate program and loves the campus life and education she is recieving! My professors made it easy to know what was needed to accomplish awesome grades!
I received my Masters in Speech Language Pathology from Montclair. The full time academic staff and clinical supervisors were great. The program itself was disorganized, starting with they have this program in the wrong 'school' as it should be a masters of science. Additionally, the adjunct professors and clinical supervisors were not as high quality, standards and expectations ranged greatly across supervisor or class.
