Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate Biomedical Informatics program at ASU is ideal for those who are interested in the Clinical and/or Health Informatics aspects of the field. The association with the Mayo Clinic and the expertise of the faculty are perfect for that discipline. Personally, I am more interested in specializing in Bioinformatics and I believe that ASU's program needs more courses in this area, specifically I would like more coursework in programming for Bioinformatics. Also, a larger number of classes and options for flexibility in completing the program would be helpful for students.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Arizona State University has provided me a spectacular education in the teaching field. I graduated in December of 2015 and am currently seeking my masters degree in Gifted Education. I would recommend this school to anyone looking to broaden their horizons with a degree from the renowned Mary Lou Fulton School of Education.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2018

I am the first in my family to attend graduate school. I chose MA in Applied Ethics focusing on Biomedical and Health Ethics as my program. This field is fascinating and full of interesting cases that will be useful in the area of health care, especially for those who are planning to become doctors. The faculty are teaching us relevant issues in the health care industry and using old cases as foundations to solve problems. They will challenge you critically to come up with solutions that will respect religions, cultures, gender, or even social status. Also, the staff of the school are very accommodating as they will help you to make sure that your questions will be answered appropriately. That is why I am triumphal and satisfied with the field that I am in and hoping this area will get more recognition as it will be helpful in the area of health care.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I recently applied for a masters program with ASU so my review will be based on my undergraduate time spent at ASU. I attended online and all teachers are always available and provide a curriculum that is easy to follow for online students. I finished with a 3.83 GPA

Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently enrolled in graduate school at ASU's smaller, west campus which is also my Alma Mater. I actually decided to return to ASU's west campus because I had such a positive experience as an undergraduate. This campus is much smaller than some of the other ASU campuses and it has a very academically driven atmosphere. The Dean is very driven towards improvement and academic integrity and the professors are, for the most part, very personal, very available, and very interested in individualized student success. The classes sizes are relatively small, especially in the upper levels, and the curricula has been challenging, interesting, and relevant so far and from what I experienced in my final undergraduate years. I was a transfer student from a private school in California and was not a huge fan of living on the main campus and dealing with the traffic and the crowds, however, the West campus has a very personalized and studious feel to it. The buildings and facilities are also relatively new and are always very well maintained. The campus is clean and safe and most of the staff and faculty are very helpful. Overall, as far as college experiences go, I would highly recommend ASU's West Campus programs.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

I needed a graduate program that was flexible, affordable, and recognized for excellence. Arizona State University was at the top of my list for each area. They are one of the most affordable graduate programs I've encountered. The online courses give me the ability to balance work and family life while still pursuing my degree. They are currently ranked #1 in the U.S. for innovation.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

As an international student from China, Nonprofit Leadership and Management major is not a "hotspot" for most of my people. Entering an master degree world to study a major that I barely know anything about, I feel being challenged consistently. However, glad to have the supportive professors here in Arizona State University, who are very intelligent and knowledgeable in the field of nonprofits, from ancient philosophy to the modern trends. The professors here also value the community of practices, they invite the current professionals in the nonprofit industry to offer frontline insights for the students. The professors also challenge us to think deeper and encourage us to be Innovation. After one semester learning, I not only get the full particulars to the evolving theoretical and policy terrain of the nonprofit sector but also established an original model of my own nonprofit organizations.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

I researched many institutions before deciding on the ASU online program. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of the instructors and the quality of the classes. Taking online courses is like being in the classroom, you get what you put into it. If you read all the required reading, do the assignments to the best of your ability, and participate in the class, you will receive a great education. ASU provides solid instruction and good student support.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently attending Arizona State University's Master's in Social Work Online program. As a single, full time working mother of 2, being able to attend an affordable and accredited MSW program online has been a great alternative to the traditional classroom setting. Because I am a single mom and work full time, I simply do not have the ability to attend school without sacrificing time away from my children. Therefore, I needed to find a fully accredited MSW program that provided all instruction online at my convenience. ASU has provided exactly that. ASU has wonderful professors. They are extremely knowledgeable and clearly care about their work and in providing quality education. Thus far the entire process has been seamless and very rewarding. Best of all, I am able to do my internship hours with my current employer. I cannot say enough positive things about ASU.
