Degree: Curriculum & Instruction

I have to say that Walden University is not for everyone because you have to be self-motivated. Do not expect professor to hold your hand to do your work. I received my Master of Science in Education and my Doctor of Education and both programs were rigorous. I do have to say that their dissertation process is very rigorous because they expect nothing but the best. Do not expect professors to tell you what to do because they will not tell you anything. Walden's online classrooms have rubrics for... Read More

My experience was great. Assistance was available when I needed it and I finished in a timely manner. My advisor, Chairs, and program director were helpful and supportive. With most things, the effort you put in is what you will get back. Time management and discipline are key.

Stay away from Walden if you're looking to complete a Ph.D. without going broke. I began my program in 2008, thinking I would be able to complete my studies in five years. It is now 2016 and I'm still not finished because of the exceptionally long time it takes to get any writing reviewed. Any time I turn in an assignment, instructors have 14 days to review. While working with my dissertation committee, this means that each person has two weeks to review my work and return it. They do not do this... Read More

I would recommend that you look into the program thoroughly before committing to it and before getting in debt. I had to exit the program because one of the chair professors did not respond to my assignments in a timely manner. I complained to her supervisor and he advised me to be patient. Meanwhile, I was getting deeper and deeper into debt. I completed all the courses, but due to the lack of follow through from the chairs I did not complete my research study and decided to exit the program after... Read More

Walden University at the Doctoral Level is an absolute joke. I would dare say that they're a joke at all levels. But, I'll refrain from hurting the feelings graduates of that piece of garbage. They are designed to recruit as many students as possible to boost their commission and that's all they care about. You WILL NOT receive any support and the feedback from professors pretty much comes from a "comment bank". The professors barely read your work and gave me grades for completion. Don't waste your...

I signed up with Walden thinking they would live by their promise "A lot of help in one place" They did not. I am getting ready to go to court with them unless they are able to rectify the current problem. Most Professors are fine. I am not impressed with their academic advisors. I think at least one of them is so involved in his own studies he loses sight of his duties to the student. There is too much money involved for errors to be made that leave the student holding the blade. I am sorry I did... Read More

For this review I will keep it succinct. Walden is not an institution where you learn through instruction. Read a book, write a paper, search on google, write more, and begin again. If you desire interaction, collaboration, good solid knowledgeable feedback, and consistency, then this will serve as advice to avoid the Walden program. It is very costly. It is non-supportive. It is geared for low profile. It is retaliatory. Search the internet first. Use your intuition and understand that there are... Read More
