Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

Most of the intro classes are large, like 100-200 people, but other classes could have 20-40 people. Most of the intro classes also have a lab, which are usually around 20 people. Workload depends on how many classes you take.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Academics Rating

In the Education Department the professors are really focused on you learning something. As a result almost every Education class isn't super challenging and you are almost guaranteed an A in it if you do all of the work and show up to class. Class sizes are respectable and the general workload isn't too bad. If you are in an Education program it is a lot of busy work which requires some time. It isn't too bad though.
