Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2012

I would definitely recommend the Master's of Accountancy program at Alabama State University. All of the professors have the knowledge and the experience needed to successfully guide you through the program. The school is a HBCU and you are able to have a smaller student to teacher ratio, which can lead to a more productive learning environment from my experience. The program is only a year and a half and the classes are set to accommodate full-time working students. The courses are an extensive extension to the courses taken in the undergrad accountancy program. The staff outside of the professors are always available to assist you in any way that they can. This was an overall great experience for me and I was able to obtain a higher paying position once I received my Master's of Accountancy degree.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

This degree program is, I think, one that will help prepare me for work by the time I graduate. The professors really care about your education and they want to see you succeed. They facilitate a great learning environment. At ASU, we have interdisciplinary classes, Meaning we have P&Os, OTs, and PTs in some classes. But we stay with the same people who came into physical therapy with us throughout our 3 years here. It makes for a great environment and promotes cohesiveness, allowing us to get to know each other. While the program is great, there are some issues, as with other schools. For example, sometimes the internet is down for a period of time and then we are not able to access documents online. But, the program is, I think one of the best physical therapy programs around- very intense.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 1991

ASU's graduate education program was the right choice for me. I am grateful for the instruction in and practice with developing the human spirit. The experiences there allow me to help students to grow in their academics as well as in their abilities to make choices that are moral and to use those choices to propel them towards a wholesome, responsible life.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

My experience at Alabama State was very enlightening. My teachers were very accessible and were able to help me with anything I needed. The class sizes were small so learning was easy. The course subjects were directly related to real-world experiences that I might encounter. I also had many networking opportunities that will help me in my future career.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program at Alabama State University is a great stepping stone for any accountant. They provide scholarships that cover full tuition, books, and fees which reduces the financial burden of receiving another degree. Also the learning environment is very open and encourages students to participate in open discussions on the relevant topics. We do much critical thinking to better prepare us for the real world of accounting. The class sizes are very small so you get much one on one interaction with the instructors.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Alabama State University's Occupational Therapy programs pass rate for the National Board Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT) certification examination as first-time new graduate test takers during 2011-2013 was 88%. A con of the graduate program is the limited scholarship opportunities that are offered at the University.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

I would say that I really enjoyed my experience at Alabama State University. The Occupational Therapy graduate program is great. I have learned a lot of valuable information about this profession as well as made some great connections. The faculty and staff are always available for helping their students. They truly prepare you for a career in occupational therapy.
