Student & Graduate Reviews

3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2012

I enjoyed my time at Arizona State University. I feel my undergraduate degree in Psychology was fantastic. It prepared me well for many options leaving school. There were many prominent psychologists instructing. For my masters program in Educational Psychology, I enjoyed my program, although it is no longer available at ASU. I was part of the College of Education, which is now the Teachers College. The Teachers College is fine, just more limited to teaching rather than other areas of education.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

Arizona State University is an honorable college to attend. I am currently pursuing my doctorate degree in education to become an administrator and challenge myself academically and personally. have been so appreciative of the rigor and challenging courses that have prepared me to be a future administrator. Thank you ASU!

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

Let's close our eyes and imagine... You walk on to campus and are enveloped into the desert vibe, Phoenix style. You can feel the sun's warmth and you are surrounded by students of all backgrounds with great energy for their projects and what's currently happening at the school and in the world. We are all involved in various activities, excited to learn and enjoy our time, all with a backdrop of the beautiful and otherworldy cacti-filled landscape. Your sense is that there's always something to be a part of: football games, late-night tacos on Mill Ave., workshops of all kinds, student-run initiatives, faculty-organized contests, dorm activities and the vibe abounds that anything can happen at anytime. And with 750+ undergrad and graduate degrees and creativity encouraged, it sure does...and now you're a part of it.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College Masters degree program in Early Childhood Education is rigorous and educational. I enjoyed most of the classes that I took through out this degree. I did struggle to contact certain instructors when I specifically needed their assistance. That is a draw back when taking courses online. Speaking with instructors over the phone must be scheduled and at times, certain questions require immediate attention. However, the courses themselves were very interesting and challenging. I do wish that they focused more on lesson planning and teacher assessment methods instead of courses such as researching a topic in education. I learned more from great mentors than some of courses. Overall, I recommend this school and degree program. The last concern that I had was with the advising office. The latest counselor that was assigned to me at times did not give time to discuss my concerns or questions. Instead I was instructed to ask elsewhere.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I am an ASU Graduate student but I also received my undergraduate degree here. From the very beginning I felt very well guided. I went to previous colleges where I was given a lot of information but no one to walk me through the process. At ASU I was given tools to learn time management, study skills, and even how to use resources on the campus. During the majority of my courses I was a single mother so having someone there to help me, also allowed me to compete my degree and move forward toward pursuing my graduate degree.

Degree: Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2017

ASU has very rigorous standards for GPA's when it comes to not only graduating with a degree but just to stay in a program. You must fully involve your self in every aspect of each course every week, any less may result in you just having one bad week, being put on academic probation and run the risk of being dismissed from the program. Do not take your classes lightly and do not grow lax just because you are floating nothing but B's. One C with 8 B's and you could be dismissed.

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2018

I really enjoy the flexibility of the Graphic Information Technology program at ASU online. It is rigorous, challenging and FUN. Right out the gate, I know that my classes are having direct impact on the work I do outside of school. I am already a graphic designer and this program is helping to make my skill sets even more refined to provide enhanced services for my clients.

Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

The Solar Energy Engineering and Commercialization program is well built and well rounded. Because of the relatively low number of students in the program the program director can provide much more on on one help and assistance. I would recommend the program for those interested in entering the solar energy field, however, my career has taken me in a different direction.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2018

I write this review as an international graduate student attending Arizona State University. This review is strictly based on my own experience in the computer science department. Let me start with positives of ASU. ASU has a diverse international student population, hence there was no feeling of alienation when I started here. Also, the locals are friendly and are always ready to help. ASU has tons of resources to help overcome homesickness, cultural and food variations. I got settled down within a month and it felt like home from there on. Regarding the course work, the computer science courses offered are really good. They cover all of the major disciplines in computer science. There are well-equipped labs and libraries. Professors are always welcoming and ready to help with your queries. But there is a catch, not all professors are great. I would say 60 percent of professors are good, 20 percent average and 20 percent bad. Overall computer science is a good department with some great faculty. Regarding the job opportunities, ASU conducts career fairs where few of the employers recruit students, but the career fairs are not that great as the number of employers attending is less and the students seeking employment are far more. This does not mean that we end up being jobless, it just means we have to search for jobs through other means like job portals, LinkedIn, employee referral etc. Most of the students in computer science get a job before they graduate. Also, the university has tons of resources to help you prepare for your job search. There are resume reviews, mock interviews, workshops about career and job search strategies and much more. Also, we can schedule appointments with career coaches in case we need personalized attention. With respect to social life, there are many cultural student organizations to be part of. There are Friday night events, regular camping and movie nights etc. Overall, the experience at ASU is positive.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Apart from the sometimes dreadful weather apparent in Tempe, the classes offered throughout ASUs' campuses is extraordinary. If you are looking to obtain a diversified education, with the ability to study abroad across the globe or gain valuable experience through an internship, this is the place for you.
