The class sizes are not overwhelming. The professors and instructors do offer you an opportunity for critical thinking. The courses are challenging but I do enjoy the interaction and the different points of view.

I am hoping as I progress through my educational journey to achieve my degree, More information about internships will become available. I am an online student so am not privvy to the advantages of the interactions or resources of a brick and mortar school. I will have to put increased effort into investigating more opportunities that may be available to me. I do believe that a degree from Ashford will greatly increase my chances of obtaining a career.

I have enjoyed going to Ashford University. The advisors are extremely helpful and understanding. I am carrying a 4.00 average. This requires focus and dedication but I have learned so much, not only about academics, but also myself. I would, and have, reccommend this school to anyone who wants to succeed.
