Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

So far I am completely satisfied with my experience at Arizona State University. The welcome videos were helpful in preparing me for what is to come once classes start. Furthermore, all of the staff have gone above and beyond my expectations. I feel prepared for classes to start and I am super excited to start my graduate school journey with Arizona State University.

The online program is great because it fits in with my family's schedule easily. I don't have to be online at any certain times to meet for class, which is helpful. There are also many people who check in with me from advisors to coaches to make sure I'm on the right track and doing well.

M. Ed. in Applied Behavior Analysis at Arizona State University is great. I took their course 100% Online and it was great to have the opportunity to do things on my spare time. The program aligns with the BACB requirements. After completing the program and internship you can sit for the BCBA exam.

ASU on-line is a fantastic option for students wishing to pursue a degree while working and raising a family. The professors are readily available and very responsive to questions. The course work is designed to fit your schedule and needs. I highly recommend Arizona State and I can't wait to walk across the stage to receive my Master's in a year!

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2018

I admit I was nervous about starting a Master's degree, especially an online program. I have seen friends struggle with teaching themselves complicated ideas and not getting feedback, under the pressure of their entire grade riding on a single final exam. Thankfully, my experience with Arizona State University Masters in Curriculum and Instruction has been nothing like that! I have received clear instructions, useful feedback on graded assignments, and helpful responses from both instructors and fellow students whenever I have reached out. Once you enroll in your classes you gain access to My ASU, where you can find links to important and useful stuff like course catalogues, your financial status, the academic calendar, and academic services. The online university uses Blackboard as a platform for communication and assignment submission, and this is also linked to your My ASU page. From Blackboard, you can navigate between assignments, discussion boards, course materials, and your current grades which are usually updated weekly. For me blackboard was confusing at first, although I quickly learned to navigate it. One issue I have had is that some professors post assignments and deadlines in different platforms, and it can be frustrating trying to find specific information. My instructors have been very knowledgeable and the assignments are relevant. There is a lot of reading involved, which can be tedious but Im not sure how they could get around this. The discussion board is another common feature in the online classes- each student is required to write a post of a certain length on a specified topic, and then comment on a certain number of other posts before a deadline each week. Its not as natural as a discussion in person, but it is a good way to see other peoples perspectives and learn from their viewpoints. That said, if reading and writing are not your strong points then this is not a good choice for you. Ideally I would prefer to take classes in person. I enjoy the classroom atmosphere and fact-to-face discussions. However, the online program is definitely more convenient as I can do everything around my own schedule, and location is not an issue. Another benefit is that online classes are much cheaper! Overall I would highly recommend the online Masters in curriculum and Instruction at Arizona State University.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I enjoyed taking online classes at Arizona State University. Teachers were great and helpful. Online classes were really easy and very flexible. It took me more than four years to finish my master degree. I recommend other students to enroll into clinical research management program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The Masters of Social Work program available online through Arizona State University is amazing! The coursework is the same you would receive on campus, and the support available to online students is incredible. It is a highly rigorous and demanding program that I anticipate will give great results in professional attainment.

Arizona State University's Master of Social Work degree is well worth the consideration. I have truly enjoyed my pursuit of further education at Arizona State University. Overall, I have had great interactions with my professors and instruction assistants. They have always answered my questions in a timely manner and have made me feel that they truly want me to succeed, not just in class, but in my future career, as well.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Originally I was very intimidated about the idea of doing an online masters program while working full time. Online classes were new to me completely so I was very unsure how much access I would have to my teachers and other students in the program. I was very surprised to see the effort that ASU goes through in order to try and encourage interaction between student and instructor as well as between students in the program. There was a huge emphasis put on contacting the teachers or TA's for questions and well as using class discussion boards to ask questions to other students. It was extremely helpful to be given so much access and so many options to communicate. I also liked how accessible the class lectures and information is to the students. I was able to download lectures and listen to them in the car and the gym and many other places. This was a huge thing for me because I am working full time. So trying to do school and work while trying to maintain a normal life is very tough. Allowing me to listen to lectures anywhere allowed me a lot of freedom to keep doing the things I loved. I have been nothing but satisfied so far. My instructors are extremely accessible and if i ever write them with questions or concerns I usually have a response with in a hour or two. Overall it has been great and I'm looking for ward to finishing the program in the summer
