Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

ASU is a great place to study Mechanical Engineering (or any other type of engineering, for that matter). As with any school, some professors are pretty bad, but overall I found my professors to be very good. More importantly, though, there are great opportunities for supplementing classwork: research (for both undergrads and grads), tons of student orgs, and workshops / networking opportunities / career fairs. And financing your graduate tuition is made a lot easier by their RA/TA opportunities. My biggest critique would be that many of the graduate courses are too specific to be of use in the industry (the classes seem geared toward research instead).

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The school of public affair's master degree program in public administration is challenging and rewarding. They provide many opportunities to gain first-hand experience in the public sector. In addition, the program provides opportunities to work with large city budgets and find solutions to balance those budgets in a meaningful way. Unfortunately the courses offered do not always have options for the day of the week it is offered, or the professor that teaches the course.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2017

The Arizona State University is a remarkable university that offers a great number of Doctoral, Graduate and undergraduate degrees in many different fields. I am in the Masters program for Sociology and this was the best decision I ever made. ASU has five campuses in Arizona and it offers in campus and online classes and ASU also has a great study abroad program. I like the Sociology program because ASU is concerned with the value-related aspects of sociological theory, research, and professional life after graduation. ASU seeks to extend the boundaries of humanistic sociology be exploring connections between sociology and the needs of employers by being a modern university and on top of technology. Also the professors are knowledgeable and concerned with proving a great educational level. My experience with ASU has been great. Highly recommended, thank you!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

For the non-traditional student, Arizona State University (ASU) offers a diverse array of programs to choose from that can be completed from the comforts of one's own home. As a non-traditional student with a young child, ASU has given me the opportunity to complete my degree in Applied Behavior Analysis while still retaining a work-school-life balance. Without the online program, I would have never been able to pursue my degree, and earn the credits towards the Board Certified Behavior Analyst certification.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

The skills and knowledge gained from the Masters of Liberal Arts program is instrumental in my pursuits to gain a deeper understanding of issues at both the country and global scale. In addition, in light of growing ethical concerns related to religion and technology. The curriculum has equipped me with the necessary skills to understand and resolve issues arising from these matters. It has also promoted my exploration of the impact of these issues and allow me to gain a better understanding of my role in society and the perceptions that the society holds about my preferred career. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary study has enhance my thinking and problem-solving skills. Critical thinking is an asset for every individual in the workplace and personal life. It allows one to analyze all the factors involved in the problem and come up with the most appropriate course of action. Exposure to other disciplines has enabled me to build on the skills I gained as an undergraduate via exploration of the dynamic issues involved in each legal and ethical issue.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

Arizona State University is regarded as the most innovative university in the world. This means we do things differently, we seek new solutions to solve society's most pressing challenges. It's not uncommon to cross boundaries between disciplines at ASU. For example, you could be an engineering student and work with business experts, to optimize your device's marketability. This is due to the vast amount of resources available at ASU. Resources are endless for each subject; if you are struggling at math, writing, or organic chemistry, there's help for you. My one piece of advice, go to tutoring, with your professor, or even other students. Professors are your most valuable resource, use them. As a student, I have learned more than I could possibly imagine in just 2 years, and look forward to more opportunities as I pursue my graduate degree at ASU.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2018

Applied to both ASU and U of A however chose ASU due to proximity to me, openness of faculty, and ease of program with my current life. Have my classmates that commute from out of state - though we have immersions (in-person class) approx 1-2x / month. Appreciate they set up our clinical sites and the faculty are all knowledgeable and willing to do whatever it takes to help you succeed.
