Mediocre at Best

I really enjoyed the first few courses. The work was challenging, but worth it. I has one teacher who was rude, not sure how that works when I am paying your salary. Then I had a biostats course with very little support, crazy grading habits and just an overall bad experience. I think it is time to move on. I really thought this school would have a better program. I also didn't like the antiquated technology.

This an excellent program. It is a top rated program with US News and World Report. I enjoy the faculty members and the delivery through ANGEL...I am in my second course and I have to admit, I was worried about online, but now that I have finished almost 2 courses now, I would never want to take a program face to face again, nor would I want to take a program at another school. Benedictine has a rich academic tradition and is not one of these online powerhouse schools where they treat people like a number...I love this program and I have recommended this school to several of my friends!

I took the Public Health Ethics class - that was enough! The instructor did not give any lecture notes, just assignments, including a paper each week, half of them had to be 10 pages in length. There was little to no feedback from the instructor. Most of the few articles he provided were not from scholarly journals and were from before the year 2000. When my computer crashed, I had emailed him from work to ask if he had received my paper, he replied 2 days later to check if I got a grade! He never told me until after the term was over that he would not accept the paper that I had to retype and send in late since the computer had crashed. I've taken multiple online classes at other schools - this was the worst. 8 weeks of class cost $1900 plus over $100 for a text - I could have bought the previous year's version for $30 but the revised version was required. At least until after class started when he said either was fine!!!
