    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY: IT'S ALL HERE

    My girlfriend recommended it to me for their psychology program. And since it's a state college, the tuition was not as expensive compared to out of state colleges. The distance also played a role, it is not far from my home. There is even a bus that goes there from port authority in New York. Being a commuter, this played a big role into choosing this college.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The course curriculum seems very fitting. It covers all the basics of psychology and after that it gives the students a choice in which direction they want to go when it gets to the deeper levels of psychology. That's what I like about the curriculum because it doesn't force one set of classes for every student in the program. There is enough liberty in it that students graduating from the psych program can each have knowledge in different areas of psych.
