Western Oregon University Graduate Reviews

3 reviews
A healthy, co-constructive faculty despite questionable admin. Interpreting faculty during my graduate years were personable, hilarious, creative, not in the box thinkers. Every experience is unique. No cohort is the same. That’s exactly how it should be. I’m proud to have received my masters degree in interpreting studies.
Being ahead of their field isn’t always easy but this faculty looked challenge in the face and said “so what? We gonna do what we want because we know it’s right.”
They are the reason I’m not burnt out on the profession. They provided education and also hope and validation that doing pit best matters.

I love WOU. The campus is small and charming. The grounds are well kept and the staff/students are very friendly. It is a place where people feel welcome and that they can be themselves. Since it is a smaller school there are more opportunities for students to work on campus and with their professors.
I enjoyed the small class sizes as well as the location. Monmouth is not far from Salem and is also close to outdoor activities such as hiking and visiting the coast. The education department sometime leaves a bit to be desired in terms of practical training for teachers.
