Other comments

The student:professor ratio allows for a personal and private learning environment, in which many thrive. The professors genuinely care for and get to know their students.

2.0

Pros

Most content in classeswas an acceptable preparation for higher learning and service opportunities within the field.

Cons

Expectations of assignments and tests should be clear. Communication between staff and student on grades should be more frequent, honest, and equal/fair for each student. Reasoning should be given for a grade upon questioning of it. Students want to know how they can improve. There is a desperate need of a tutoring or mentoring program within the major: none exists. This is essential for the learning process itself for many students and for the opportunity to become the professional that one is expected to be in this field. Some projects and tests were impossible to pass without guidance of a former student who had taken that class already. This goes hand in hand with expectations of assignments and tests needing to be exceptionally clear. Lastly, I believe there should be a Master’s program at this school. It seems as though so many Master’s programs elsewhere are so competitive that it is almost impossible to get in one because there are not enough programs, professors, and there is not enough funding to begin programs. I know I have struggled greatly to do find a program because my GPA is not up to expectations, although my GRE scores are within an average range of those admitted to Master’s programs. I have been blessed to find an Assistant job but I had never intended on being an assistant, only, and would hope there will be a program that will accept me someday in the near future, if that is what I decide to continue to pursue.

Other comments

There could have been more guidance for those looking for assistant jobs and for those looking for master’s programs.
