Student & Graduate Reviews

2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great program, located at the heart of the capital, and very affordable. This makes the program very attractive to those wanting to start careers in government or with private firms that focus in the Little Rock metro area. However, the school needs to improve its campus safety, diversity, and career services more. Recent changes in some positions has helped matters, but more needs to be done. Without more, this school does not support its program with student services that should be and are done better on other campuses.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The Public Administration program is a valuable, challenging program that provides a wide variety of career opportunities. The instructors are very helpful and push their students towards excellence. This is the only accredited MPA program in the state. I have attended this campus for three years and had a marvelous experience.

Pros: Great sense of community. Everybody is kind of like a family and they are always looking out for each other. The faculty makes sure that the students are getting the support that they need. We are always learning and there are plenty of opportunities. Cons: Small population in the area.

4.04 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I rated financial aid the lowest because I received my Master's degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in addition I took 40 additional hours above my Masters to get certifications in various areas of Education. All of these hours I received no financial aid and were paid for by myself or my family. When I applied for financial aid for my Educational Specialist degree I had too many graduate hours to qualify for Financial Aid. This is a University policy and at this time I really need financial aid. I am a single mom and providing for two kids and paying for graduate school on a teacher's salary was difficult. The content thus far of my graduate program in Educational Administration has been very worthwhile.
4.21 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I finished my undergrad at the second largest college in Arkansas, UCA. I then went to further my education at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I didn't think I would like or enjoy UALR. I love it! It's a small school found right in Little Rock. It's very diverse and there are a lot of things to do in Little Rock. My teachers have been great and I am really enjoying the graduate program. Plus, parking at a smaller school is AWESOME!

3.54 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pro: Faculty and Staff are very helpful in guiding me towards my future goals. They offer great internship opportunities that could be potential career locations. All instructors are passionate about the courses they teach and include the proper resources for those who need extended help. Con: There aren't many scholarship opportunities available for the graduate programs. With such a large student population the competition is too great to be considered. This leaves a lot of students with excessive student loans that hinder them as aspiring professionals.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The Higher Education program at UALR, has taught me a lot just in the first semester! I have been able to use my knowledge that I am learning in the class room and apply to real life in my graduate assistantship program. Something that I am not too fond about is that the classes are late at night, I sometimes worry about my safety being on campus that late. The professors are wonderful, they are very knowledgeable and are more than willing to help us out.
