My daughter went there before transferring to Wright state in 2009.we felt that some teachers were lazy and expected the students to teach them selves.she also said there is no variety of majors just general degrees there. Also be wary of financial aid office they've been known to screw up. My daughter also said some teachers just didn't care and didnt encourage her being a female in a male dominated field.

I went to Clark State and received my accounting degree. I would say at the beginning of my education that the teacher's weren't as good as they could have been. I had three different teachers for my first three accounting classes, and I think that hampered the learning quite a bit since some would spoon-feed the answers to you. But then they brought in a new lady to run the department, and she knew her stuff (too bad we didn't). But she tried to whip us into shape for our last three classes.

As to degrees...I can't really help you there. Accounting was and still is supposed to be in demand according to statistics, but I couldn't tell you where. Nobody wants you until you have about 5yrs experience, and you can't get it if nobody hires you. It's true with most degrees, and the employers are taking full advantage of the unemployment rate still being so high and aren't paying what they should and requiring more experience to even get in the door. Or, as with my employer, use the excuse of you just getting out of college to start you a lot lower than they should.

My advice, if you can afford not to work (which most of us can't), take an internship somewhere no matter where you go to school at. Even if it's just part-time, get that experience rolling so that there are no excuses for the employers when you get out of school. And don't take online courses if you can help it. You learn half as much, and employers look at those as the easy way out because they know how much cheating goes on in those. If you're going to pay for the education, do it right and actually learn.
