Henley-Putnam University Reviews:

Don't know if I'm unlucky, but...

I've taken 5 classes with HPU so far. While the support staff seems to be very much on it, I've ran into two major issues regarding the academics- 1) In three of the classes, I was the ONLY student (I even restarted one class at a later date, just to see if it would change). I study Security and Intel Management ... How are you supposed to develop ties within the community when you are the only one in class? I understand this is a great thing in an in-person class, as one can develop a great relationship with the professor, but it makes learning absolutely disheartening in an online environment. There is no debate, no impassioned discussion; just a once-every-two-weeks quid-pro-quo with the professor. Being absolutely frank - it is a crappy way to learn. 2) While the book selection is semi-up-to-date, the material itself in several of the courses was rather dated. Yes, some things that were true in the world 10 years ago are are still applicable today ... but, with the propagation of internet and mobile environments, some things have undergone some drastic changes.

As a current student at Henley-Putnam, Masters Management of Personal Protection, I have had nothing but a great experience. I received my Bachelors from the University of Phoenix which prides themselves on online education. Henley-Putnam has clearly used some of the growing experiences from UofP and other online institutions to perfect the learning experience. However, as I read the reviews already depicting the faculty, it has been remiss in not mentioning the administrative staff. With only three (3) classes to go and my scholarship running out, the administrative staff have been working diligently in assisting me with finding alternative means of completing my Masters. The administrative staff is phenomenal and should receive equal accolades as the faculty. I look forward to completing my Masters but do not look forward to parting ways at graduation with such a staff and faculty nothing short of phenomenal.

This institution consistently goes to great lengths to ensure its students have the opportunity to relate real life information to their own career fields. I have been attending this school for almost a year now, and the staff is amazing .They go to great lengths to ensure their students are getting relevant instruction that will with out a doubt benefit the careers of its students. A truly rare opportunity to learn from tested professionals.

First Class Instruction

Where else can you get a top-flight education in these disciplines, offered by world-class instructors? Henley-Putnam Instructors are subject matter experts, not just academically, but based on years of real world operational experience in their respective fields. The instructional staff's understanding of global issues and how they pertain to national security concerns is outstanding. Yet, the most impressive aspect of this school is not its esteemed faculty; Henley-Putnam has created a challenging curriculum and successfully provided it to working professionals already in these fields, to better them as students, employees and citizens.
