Arizona State University is an outstanding school and meets my expectations.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently attending Arizona State University online and pursuing a Master's in Education. I love how flexible my school schedule is and enjoy the ability to attend lectures at my convenience. All of my professors have been supportive and receptive to feedback, which is a plus for an online program. If I were to provide any negative feedback, I would say that the platform we use for team meetings is not as effective and successful as it could be. Adobe Connect typically has difficulties when setting up the platform, and often disconnects or has low quality during conference calls. Besides that, I only have positive things to say about ASU online. ASU in general has a great campus culture and I am constantly set up for success. My counselors and the Financial Aid office are in constant contact with me and I've never felt so supported this much at a school. All of my classes are relevant, challenging and engaging. I learn from my instructors, as well as my peers on a regular basis. I actually look forward to attending class meetings and lectures since I no longer have to endure long commutes. If I have any questions or concerns with my grades, I usually get a response from my professors within 24 hours or less. Overall, ASU online is a great program and I would recommend it to anyone working full-time and trying to pursue a Master's in Education.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I have really enjoyed working toward the completion of my BS in Psychology. ASU has helped me along the way with transfer credits, schedule advisement and a mentor. My professors have been friendly and willing to help when needed. The curriculum has been challenging and interesting.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

I have attended two other universities on the east coast with excellent faculty and student support but Arizona State University's dedication to student networking and professional development, particularly in my Ph.D. program surpasses them both. Moving across the country was a difficult experience and entering such a rigorous program was daunting, but as a second year student I can confidently say that the Criminology and Criminal Justice Department of the Downtown Phoenix campus is ready to help students get acclimated. Moreover, the level of engagement, humbleness, and knowledgeable faculty is second to none in my experience. The curriculum and opportunities for professional development are especially important to becoming career focused and ready to be on the job market. Faculty and staff a driven to helping student find the resources they need to succeed and it come as no surprise that our institution has been recognized for it's innovative approach to learning.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm currently completing a MS in Biomedical Diagnostics from Arizona State University Online. Online classes is a foreign way of learning for me since I completed my undergraduate education in a traditional learning setting. Only in its third year of existence, I've found the degree to be challenging, yet thought-provoking and interesting. I'm enjoying my time spent learning at ASU and I find the online programs to be well organized and easy to navigate. I would definitely recommend classes online at ASU.

Degree: Computer Animation
Graduation Year: 2017

I started this program with a one-year-old and a two-year-old at home. They are only 11 1/2 month apart, and being located in Northern New Mexico, commuting was NOT an option. Arizona State University (ASU) had the absolutely perfect online solution. I was able to take ALL my classes online through ASU's Master of Science in Graphic Information Technology (GIT). I could directly apply what I learned to my job as a freelance graphic designer. As I improved, I landed a job as an in-house student designer at a local company and hopefully will be able to land a staff position when I graduate. It was incredible to be able to keep learning as a busy mother of two AND land my dream internship to help support my family. ASU courses in the GIT field helped educate me in the ever-changing technology in my field, as well as focus on usability and target audience. These are all skills that are sought after in my field, and I am so glad I was able to develop them. I was sure to "do my homework" and interviewed other students before starting the program, and one student said it perfectly - this program is "what you put into it." Because it's online, it's project based which is awesome and more applicable to real-world jobs. It is more difficult to be held accountable when you're not in an actual classroom, so it's important to be proactive when completing projects and reading class discussions, for example. For someone like me that's very self-driven, it was perfect. It's a lot more difficult to network, for example because you don't ever meet anyone in person. I did get to know some of the students pretty well from classroom discussions, and maintain a relationship with a student who is focused more in coding/developing then design (a great relationship to have for potential free-lance projects). With the ever changing technology, and the fact that a lot more people have the opportunity to live wherever they want and work remotely, it was good practice getting to learn how to establish relationships via online. The quality of instruction was really great with most professors. They clearly worked hard to use current resources such as and currently published books. It's clear they are active in the GIT community, e.g., one professor in particular always referred to recent conferences she had attended. I stated that the campus is super safe, because, the campus for me was completely online - and there is established respect between students so I didn't see anything like cyber bullying. All the students I studied with clearly were there to learn, and it was surprising to see the dedication of students. Blackboard is the online platform for learning, and there are classroom discussions which are almost more effective than a physically located discussion because answers and responses are more thoughtful and can link to resources and citations. Overall I am really grateful for this experience. I am able to work on my education while being present for my family. I landed my dream job as a designer, and hopefully will be able to stay with that company one I graduate. My field is really competitive and it's important to continually learn. I am so grateful I can do just that at ASU. I would highly recommend this online program.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2017

I have had an outstanding experience as a graduate student in ASU's online Sociology M.A. program, they are truly a leader in innovation as they say and more importantly they prove it through their dynamic and flexible distance graduate programs. The quality of my professors, rigor of the program and availability of resources was well in excess of my expectations for what an online graduate education experience could be . I am proud to be an ASU Sun Devil student and grateful for the ability to expand my professional opportunities while continuing to work in my field.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2019

As one of the best innovative University in the Country, Arizona State University is diverse with a college culture that's both inclusive, welcoming and caring while remaining focused on the students' educational goals. Its an institution that includes innovation in majority of its fields of studies. Which is a necessity in our society today. As a DNP student innovation is applied to the curriculum in such a way that I believe will set me apart from my peers who obtain the same degree from a different institution of higher learning.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I received two BS Degrees from ASU in May 2016 and am currently enrolled in their Doctorate of Audiology program with a graduation date of May 2020. ASU has provided me with great opportunities for research and internships. The professors have all been very supportive and accessible. They WANT you to succeed and it's evident in their classes and support. I had the opportunity to go to an Ivy league for graduate school and chose to stay at ASU because of the level of education and the top ranking in the field of graduates for Audiology.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The program I took at Arizona State University ((ASU), focused on Behavioral Health delivery. At the time, it was the only program in the country that offered its unique training, and remains one of the very few. This program trains master's level clinicians from various backgrounds (ie: social work, mental health counseling, family therapy, occupational therapy), to provide mental health services in the fast pace of primary care, efficiently and effectively. All information and coursework was relevant and the program itself was very well structured. What makes this program so unique is that it offers training that is on the cutting edge of healthcare, allowing graduates to be at the forefront of health care service delivery.
