They were closer by than other schools with a similar program; and a small knit community. I liked the idea of completing an internship and a thesis before completing graduate school and entering the workforce.
Challenging and comprised of a lot of work on your own. However, it is a very real-world applicable. I feel challenged as well as preparation for entering the workforce. There is a lot of reading and responding to other students on discussion board posts, as well as semi-weekly assignments that connect to the readings and other coursework.
