Union Institute & University was a great choice for me. I knew I needed a school that would work with my full-time work load and still be demanding. I also wanted an online institution that is well-respected. I’ve been very happy with the quality of this phase of my education and recommend it heartily!Deb PingerStudent in Psychology Major
Choosing Union Institute & University was probably one of the best decisions I could have made. Union has allowed me to further my education while working in the demanding field of law enforcement, all while maintaining a balance in my ever-changing personal life.Ana AlvarezStudent in Psychology & Criminal Justice Management Majors
My professors and classmates were a close knit group and we worked as a team to navigate new knowledge and the infinite online communities of learning. I found it to be very inspiring, and my relationship with classmates was as close as one would be in a classroom.Melanie Keiser2015 Graduate
I was able to focus on areas of study that were both relevant and resonant with the subjects that interest me the most. The online format permitted me to work within the limitations of my schedule, and I was surprised by the inclusive level of communication among class members. I was also impressed by the quality of inquiries into social justice initiatives that were presented during my study at Union.Arthur Bigelow2015 Graduate
