Hi. I have not heard of Troy til I got here? Is it a good/reputable university? I'm planning of pursuing my graduate studies, and it seems there are only 2 universities (Phoenix and Troy) that offer face-to-face classes here. Would appreciate any advice or tips. Thanks 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

Troy has been around since 1887. They may know a thing or two about schooling. 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

But are they only known in the military community? They used to ne called Troy State University. They are well known.

Look at their website and see if they have any stats on employment of their graduates. Also, search for the school on Google. If a company has never heard of a school, they will likely research it and you want to get an idea of what they will find.

Where is the state of Troy? Troy, Alabama. 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

Where is Notre Dame? 

♥Mrs. Boss ♥ --- 10 years ago -

What are you planning to go for? (what is your bachelors in?) 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

I know alot of people that graduated from Troy. They have a decent football team too. They are in Div. 1 now. I think they beat FSU one time. 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

What about Harvard? They are not a state school.

And what about getting a photography degree from a book? 

dependopotamus --- 10 years ago -

Speaking of schools again. I was looking into Getting my Masters Degree, heres the thing I have a Bachelors in Dental Hygiene. The only thing Masters program offered that I'm interested in would be a Masters in Phycology. Can I go to school to get my masters in it, with my Bachelors in Dental Hygiene. My husband says NO because i should have a Bachelors in Phycology first. I'm confused.

They used to ne called Troy State University Used to ne? Did you go there?

**dependopotamus** - I think it depends on the school you are trying to get into. Each school will have different requirements for admission. Some will require a Bachelors in Psychology, but some will just require a certain amount of credits in the field. Check with the school you are trying to get into. What exactly are you wanting to do with the degree? There are many subfields in Psychology. Depending on what you want to do, you may need to get a Doctorate after the Masters. I have my minor in Psychology so I have also been looking into it as well. I'm still undecided.

Also, does anyone know off hand if they offer the GRE here?

A friend of mine did it here and is doing her masters through Texas A&M. 

dependopotamus --- 10 years ago -

A friend of mine did it here and is doing her masters through Texas A&M.  Really? 

Loved living in Oki --- 10 years ago -

Really? Really, really. 

dependopotamus --- 10 years ago -

Really? Really, really. Do tell, What is her masters in? I don't want to go to the UOP, Penn State is awesome, I just don't know what to do... There's not a lot to offer as in degrees on line you know. hummm.... 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

What's her name that is on here sometimes goes to Penn State. The Marylin Manson fan. 

dependopotamus --- 10 years ago -

What's her name that is on here sometimes goes to Penn State. Ace something or other? Shes active duty right? 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

Ace something or other? Shes active duty right? Hai. One of them Marines. 

Loved living in Oki --- 10 years ago -

Do tell, What is her masters in? Teaching. 

Loved living in Oki --- 10 years ago -

A friend of mine did it here Disregard. She took it when she was in the states. 

dependopotamus --- 10 years ago -

Disregard. She took it when she was in the states.  Ok.. I just didn't know if i could use my Bachelors to get my masters in something else. If not i'm stuck until we go back to the states so i can apply for dental school which i would need either a bachelors or a masters in something.. ugh... 

ChiTownGrl --- 10 years ago -

Yeah I have seen stuff about SAT and ACT testing, but nothing about GRE. 

Señor H --- 10 years ago -

I would think that you would need something different than a BS/BA in Dental Hygeine to apply for a Masters program. Especially Psychology. Not knocking your degree. Just saying. 

dependopotamus --- 10 years ago -

Not knocking your degree. Not taking it as knocking... I had planned to carry on to Dental school, life happens things get in the way... I just didn't want to sit around and twiddle my thumbs while here in okinawa. My brain needs school... So i thought i would apply for school, and thought humm have Bachelors why not get my Masters.. Thats all... hummm 

♥Mrs. Boss ♥ --- 10 years ago -

so utilize your time and go for something different. You can never have enough degree's. Then you will always have a backup. :-) 

Loved living in Oki --- 10 years ago -

You can attend my drinking classes. :-D 

ChiTownGrl --- 10 years ago -

Spicy Weiner- It depends on what other classes she took. If she took enough psychology classes as an undergrad, she can get into grad school for psychology. Your bachelor's and master's don't necessarily need to go together.
