As a current Graduate Student, Inlove that UMKC offers courses on a synchronous format. The ability to take courses online is very convenient since I have a challenging work schedule. The professors are well knowledgeable and make the course relevant to my work experience.
I’m a student of the conservatory. There’s a lot of things I like about the school but the conservatory itself is lacking some key elements (such as an opera director) and some of the faculty cares more about power than students. However, the campus is beautiful and I feel like I’m getting a valuable education.
