Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

My studies at Capella University was excellent regarding assistant from the staff to the business office, and so on. You can communicate with the professors, library, and your advisor. My PhD in Curriculum and Instruction provided me with vital information in curriculum development/design, research, consultant, administration, and many more opportunities in the field of education. I can conduct training, coordinate/develop/implement curriculum in order to meet the needs of my staff and learners.... Read More

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

Capella University offers a superb doctorate in education. My specialty was curriculum and instruction, with leadership and accountability. The program content and instructors were excellent, they expressed a desire to help, instruct, and guide the student for success. As an older student beginning the program I had many concerns, would I be able to complete assignments and understand the material. My plan included a study schedule, which was not changed or altered in anyway. I knew I order to be... Read More

Capella University overall was a good experience for me. Two former employers and my current employer seemed pleased with the level of knowledge I had gained from the degree. The courses were challenging and time consuming, however you get out of it what put into it. Given I was a PhD student the self-motivated learning of the online experience and actually the mediocre feedback and conversations with my professors, made it more independent which I believe you need for a dissertation. When performing... Read More

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

I chose to attend Capella after reviewing curriculum and instruction doctoral programs at four other schools. I was impressed with Capella primary because the the Capstone project. I wanted to be able to contribute the educational field beyond a paper. In addition, I love technology. Capella offers blended learning which works well for me as an independent learner.

Alumni cave (students beware). I started my Capella journey with the intent of earning a doctorate (PhD) in Instructional Design in order to conduct research and teach at the college/ university level upon retirement. The nature of my profession requires considerable travel so an online program was the only possible educational option. Most often, hotel internet connections has been the primary access to the Capella website. Capella is a for profit university (emphasis for profit) that advertises... Read More

I took three courses with Capella University before I realized this college was not for me. If you want to learn and have a degree you can be proud of then Capella is not the college to attend. If you want someone to give you the degree with no effort, than Capella is right for you. My instruct gave everyone full points when they could not even write a complete sentence. The assignments were not accurate to current knowledge. They also constantly threatened me to pay for my courses when my employer,... Read More

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

It was a challenging program. I particularly appreciated the diversity in the courseroom as it gave me the opportunity to learn from so many others with experiences and contexts that differed from my own. The university also was very supportive with scheduling as well as providing assistance when I needed it. The colloquiums were a great opportunity to connect in person with people I still stay in contact with.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

I received both my B.A. and M.A. from brick and mortar schools. If I had to do it all over, I would have preferred doing it all online. Before entering Capella I researched all online schools that offered the degree I was seeking. I chose Capella because it appeared to be the most rigorous and challenging. After having received the Doctorate in Education I can say from experience that it was challenging and the professors very demanding. Finally, all my hard work paid off and I feel I have received...
