4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am a psychology major and the psychology program that Essex County College provide is great. My teachers what excellent they were very patient and informative.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Essex County College offer a lot of great programsit is great for psychology majors, account majors and is highly known for its nursing program which is linked to University Hospital in Newark.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Because it is a community college, too much focus is not given to each major, but the school in general. Also there are not many internship opportunities provided by the school, students most times make their own research for such programs. The work load could be challenging sometimes, especially for working students as a large population of the students work.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Most of the professors I encountered really cared about their students and showed it in the way they teach, and make some decisions considering their class. I would say the curriculum is not very complicated compared to a four year college. Some processes like class registration are made easy for all to access, people are also put in place to help in case students encounter difficulties. The workload varies for each student, as they are expected to take only what they can handle. The school also offers online classes and late evening classes to suit people's different work schedule. A day care program is also located in the school to relieve parents the stress of travelling far to drop their kids.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The workload is manageable, there are few internship/job opportunities.
