Degree: Psychology

Everything I've seen so far at SNHU is on par academically with my previous experiences receiving my bachelor's from a well-known public university (UCF), and my master's from a respected art & design school (MICA). SNHU is a brick-and-mortar school, just like many other universities, but with the advantage of a refined online instruction format taught by professionals in their field. In addition, the courses being designed and broken down into modules and clear deliverables make it easier to build... Read More

I consider SNHU to be a great choice! This is the best online school out there! I found out about this opportunity from an article I have absolutely loved my experience at SNHU! From my amazing advisor to the instructors, to the Financial Aid office. They are helpful, knowledgeable, and caring. I am receiving a great education, with challenging module assignments, classmates that helped me learn, and instructors that were ALWAYS available.... Read More

The purpose of this review is to hopefully give useful information to prospective students that are looking at various schools and have stumbled across the inconsistent reviews of SNHU. When I decided to pursue a Master's with a concentration in I-O psychology I came across these reviews and severely started to question this program which did not help during my first two courses, essentially giving into confirmation bias when things were difficult. The most important thing to remember reading reviews... Read More

Be aware! Degree is worthless. 100% worthless. Skip the Masters altogether. Data is where the career market is. SNHU said be prepared to start at bottom even though I already had 30+ years of experience in a variety of leadership roles. HR folks never heard of IO Psych. Clinical PhDs claiming to be IO aren't. American Psychological Assoc DIV 14 (IO Psych) isn't lifting a finger to support MS graduates either. So what you end up with after the time and expense is a student loan balance, no decent...

I must admit, I liked this school in the beginning. It was advertised to me by admissions as a great place to get my degree as a single parent. I think depending on the professor it can be or it can really be the complete opposite. I do not necessarily think the courses are difficult when it comes to the material, however it is very hands off by the professors. The curriculum is already made for them and they just hand out the work. The course work does seem quite monotonous and not very engaging.... Read More

I thought the classes were fine and helpful. However, I do not believe that this degree has helped at all to advance my career. I have been looking to use my degree in IO Psychology for over a year now and it has not been helpful at all. There are statistics showing that this is an in demand concentration, but there are simply no jobs hiring. I would have been better off with a concentration in counseling. Also, I feel that employers are not impressed with the SNHU name at all.

I learned a lot in this program. The coursework is comparable to other regionally accredited online college programs. Instructors were helpful when I reached out. Overall, pursuing this degree was a good experience. The school is also well-respected, and I havent had any negative experiences from employers regarding the school. I recommend this program.

Great content in the courses. There is some inconsistency in what the instructors require of the students in terms of supporting research to back up discussion posts, but overall, the engagement level of the instructors themselves and the assignments really expand your proficiency in the body of knowledge you are studying.

I read a great deal of the reviews here, and there were a number of things that resonated with me and a few that didn't, so here goes. I am active duty military with an aviation background, and so I had to complete the two prerequisite courses prior to being accepted into the I/O psych program, which is fine, it's the cost of switching academic fields. I have experience both in class and online, and found SNHU to be on par or better with two other prominent online offering universities in terms of... Read More

I attended Southern New Hampshire University for my BA in Adolescent psychology, and am now within five courses of completion for my MS in Psychology with a concentration in adolescent behavior and development. I absolutely love this school, have recruited five new students for them, and will continue to do so. Another reviewer said that any education you receive is what you make of it. This couldn't be more true. This is an excellent option for continuing education students, as well as new incoming... Read More

Don't waste your money as may not lead to credentials expected. Some teaching staff are rotten at instructing. Many courses require designing an experiment. That's great, but not many businesses are conducting in-house experiments so coursework is difficult to connect to business rather than clinical content and even in some courses forbidden. Module 'lectures' are less than a page. Sometimes no textbook. Often times learning links to content that is not peer-reviewed. For $20k+, the student should... Read More

Very terrible. After I withdrew and disagreed with them, they sent my account to collections wanting 6,000 dollars. I contacted SNHU who in turn blocked me. In the past when the recruiter called me I said I found a better college, she loudly sighed and hung up the phone.

Like several other reviewers, I've attended a number of Online Universities since 2006. I earned my AA at UOPX and my BA at Ashford. Spent some time at Northcentral and Purdue working on my masters. Hands down SNHU is the best! Challenging. Relevant. Engaged instructors. Helpful staff. I worked in a remote village in India during the Winter 2014 term. The technology folks were fantastic especially considering we could only communicate using chat mode.
