Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

I love the program thus far! I have continuously strived for higher education, and I feel that the nursing program offered allows me to meet my potential. I would reccommend the program for anyone who is interested and though I may not be able to continue in my education based on cost analysis, I am happy i obtained the experience.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

I was one of the students within the first wave of students accepted into the rigorous and selective newly established Global Security MA program at Arizona State University. This program, which is comprosmised of mostly career established men, challenges the governmental and militarial division and national security threats that face America. I hope to use this degree to bridge the gap between the military and government sector, as well as influence more women of all backgrounds to explore career possibilities in government or the military.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2019

The MSL Program at ASU is great for individuals seeking professional growth/opportunity. The quality of instruction, rigor, and outcomes are worth the investment. I highly recommend ASU and this program if you are seeking a quality education and need flexibility in your schedule.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

Arizona State University has been most innovative university for three consecutive years now, and this is wholeheartedly due to the progressive mindset of students and faculty at ASU. Engineering and business are the two schools at ASU and are where most of the innovation occurs. Professors are very caring, and though a large school, they are very accessible. However, there are times that the school can seem overwhelming due to the fact that there is always something going on, from events, protests, to guest speakers, and community events. Also, there are over 100 majors to choose from which if undecided, is both a good and a bad thing. Overall, ASU is an excellent university to attend, but do note, you will never be bored.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Great online program, accessible faculty and resources. I love the Master's in Public Safety Leadership Administration program; it is a hybrid of criminal justice, public policy and public administration. I would recommend to anyone who works full-time and would like to obtain a graduate degree.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2019

For working professionals, ASU's online Masters level courses are a godsend. I am currently enrolled in their Special Ed program and it is highly rigorous and demanding, BUT it is totally worth the effort. The instructors are always available by email and they get back to you relatively quickly.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

I started my MBA this year at W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. So far, the curriculum looks diverse. The professors provide a rigorous program. I am in the Pro Flex program. I attend class two night a week, 6:15 p.m. to 10:15 p.m. I take two classes at a time for seven weeks at a time. The student support staff is very helpful. I attended an orientation before classes started. It was a multi-day event that covered what the program would entail in detail. We meet our teams and even prepared for a case study analysis presentation. I plan to write another review after I complete the program in two years. So far, it has been a good experience.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Arizona State University is a great school to pursue your Masters degree. The cost is manageable and the quality of education you receive is outstanding. I am confident I am being provided with the foundation I need to become a BCBA after I graduate.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a current online MS Psychology student at Arizona State University. Although I am new to the program, I felt compelled to write this review because I wish someone else had written it for me to read. I spent almost two years trying to decide what graduate program was right for me. I had many hesitations because I have not been in school for a few years, I had financial fears, and I felt like I was not experienced enough to be accepted. Finally, I gained the courage to apply to Arizona State University. It was a financially sound decision, the program description met my expectations, and the ability to complete it online fit my lifestyle perfectly. My first class is Professional Issues in Psychology. This is the only class I have taken so far, but it has already changed my life. I know that it may sound dramatic, but it has. Not only is the professor great, but the class addresses every insecurity I have about the MS program, potentially starting a PhD program, and a career in Psychology. To have those fears addressed immediately is priceless, in my opinion. If I had chosen a different program, and it did not have a class like this, I can tell you that my future may not be the same. I have already narrowed down PhD programs that I am interested in, joined professional associations, and expanded my network. As far as the online learning environment goes, everything is very open and organized. I can communicate freely with the professor, TA, and other students. Even if you have never done online learning, it is a very easy set up! The due dates are reasonable, and all the information is worthwhile. I highly recommend this program. Lastly, I will talk about my only bad experience. I saved this for last, because I do not want anyone to see this as a reason to avoid this program. I truthfully wouldn't have even written this piece, if I didn't think it could help someone else. When you first begin the application process, you are matched with an enrollment advisor. They will call you and ask what questions you have, give you information about the program, and send you an e-mail with all the information provided. My advisor sent me an e-mail with the application deadline and other information. I attempted to submit my application almost a month before the due date I was given, and was informed that I owe a $50 late fee. I reached out to my advisor, and they suggested I call tech support. Before I could do so, I received an e-mail from my advisor stating that there was a mistake, he gave me the wrong due date, and that I do owe a late fee. I sent an e-mail and attached a screen shot of the date I was given, and stated that I shouldn't have to pay based on their error. I was simply given an apology for any inconvenience this fee may cost. There was no responsibility taken for the error, and I ended up having to pay $120 to submit my application. As irritating as that experience was, it is avoidable. Please, just remember to double check all the information you are given. Do not let this deter you from choosing this great program.

Degree: Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I've attended Arizona State University (ASU) for the majority of my undergraduate degree, and was impressed with the quality and content so much so that I am currently attending ASU for a Masters of Science in Global Technology and Development. My first one and half years of undergraduate school I attended Northern Arizona University and it paled in comparison to ASU. My student status at ASU is an online student, which had filled me with anxiety upon my acceptance into graduate school. Graduate school is the perfect opportunity to network and expand educational understanding and experience. How was I going to accomplish this from the desk in my living room? My worries were put to rest shortly after my acceptance to the graduate program. The resources for online students is astounding. A few examples of the utilization of technology for inclusion would be the ASU Online Facebook group invite I received. The invite provided me with a platform to engage with other students, whom also receive schooling via online. Collaboration, suggestions, and input from ASU staff and fellow students all occurred in a relaxed environment. I like to compare this to the conversations many students get to experience on campus before and between classes. In addition, I am provided with live stream events that relate do my degree and passions. ASU will host online webinars for networking and academic resourcing such as resume building sessions. One of the most exciting and progressive aspects of ASU is the student organizations and their inclusion of online students. There is a list of clubs that are applicable to online student attendance. This actually inspired me to create my own student organization, Global Public Health Brigades. The club I started, along with many others through ASU, live stream organization events and meetings and allow international volunteer work/trips to apply to online students regardless of their physical location. ASU is expanding their student base without sacrificing quality and student involvement opportunities. I could not be more ecstatic to be at the forefront of the technological advances that are integrating their way into education.
