The class sizes are small about 15-20 students in a class, and most of the teachers have PhDs and some have Masters. The workload is constant and requires ALOT of focus. It helps your grow personally and professionally.

I had great teachers for my general education classes and some very good professors in the Special Education department. The classes were reasonably sized so the professors got to know the students. There are always advisors available to help when you have a concern.
