Degree: Emergency Management
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm about to start my 2nd semester at Arizona State University, and so far it's been a great experience. I'm currently serving in the Military and travel a lot for months at a time and the way ASU breaks down the classes per semester, its allowed me to enroll full time and still be able to do my job where ever I go. The professors are outstanding and very helpful, always there to answer any questions. The advisors are always there for me and even call me to make sure I'm good and not need anything. Arizona State University has been a great choice for me.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

The online program through Arizona State University has allowed me to continue to work in the field while completing my studies. The flexibility of the program and course set up ensures I stay on top of my studies while acquiring practical hands-on experience necessary to sit the BCBA exam. The work load is such that I feel I am learning to apply the concepts reviewed while still finding a work-life balance. I am very pleased with my decision to complete my Med online.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

Pursuing my Master of Urban and Environmental Planning degree at Arizona State University has been a good decision overall. The department offers Teaching Assistant positions that bring down out-state tuition to 50% of in-state tuition plus a semester stipend. The program itself allows students to take classes beyond the Urban Planning department, including Public Affairs, Civil Engineering, Design, and Sustainability. Finally, if you are creative at scheduling, you can work throughout the Phoenix metro area at a variety of internships, which will bolster your work experience, build your network, and strengthen your resume.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2017

As a working professional, I was thrilled to see ASU offer the MA in Sociology in an online format. Attending class several nights a week is not an option for me. However, I often wonder if the online format is more challenging than on-ground. In order to graduate in 15 months, students must attend sessions in Fall, Spring, and Summer, with Summer classes being as short as six weeks. The coursework is rapid-fire and intense. To get through this accelerated program, ASU provides an amazing support system. I have found the professors extremely accessible and willing to help over email and via phone conferences. Class structure is very clear and syllabi leave nothing to question. ASU offers a Graduate Writing Center, where you can get specialized assistance and review of your papers, as well as regular tutoring for courses like Statistics (mandatory for this program). The library resources are comprehensive, IT fantastic, and both are available nearly 24/7. I've never had an IT issue that wasn't resolved within a half hour of me contacting them. That includes wait time and troubleshooting. ASU offers you a success coach as well, who checks in with you as you progress through the program, ensuring you have guidance and support as you need it. They offer phone conferences as well, if you desire -- but also leave you to your studies if you don't want to engage with them. I'm very impressed with the structure and support of the online MA Sociology program at ASU.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2018

State colleges are frequently overlooked resource for economical education. They setup classes from skilled professionals and offer access to expensive equipment that you otherwise would never be able to use. I love Arizona State University for several of reasons: Education Above all, ASU acts as a safety net for those who need an education that leads to a paying future. Instructors ASU classes are normally taught by real professionals from the field. When I learned about theoretical issues of development, my classes were taught by instructors who wrote some articles already! Affordability Community college classes are affordable. Some employers will pay for classes; my place of employment will pay for one class per employee per term. Amenities Arizona State has facilities and practical training unavailable at some universities. Many students take classes simply for access to the amenities. Networking Classes allow you to network with professors and classmates, producing valuable contacts in your future profession Convenience ASU is aware that they serve a large population of students seeking continuing education. They try to make their classes as convenient as possible. Ive taken online classes and received the same level of support as I have on ground.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience to date has been nothing short of positive. I have had extremely helpful staff to assist me in my application process and they have always responded to my questions and concerns in a timely fashion. Arizona State University's financial aid department has provided me with all of the tools I needed to be able to ensure I understood my loans and expectations for repayment.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Arizona State University is a phenomenal university. I specifically attend the Mary Lou Fulton's Teacher's College. Classes are primarily practical with ideas and instruction that can be immediately applied in the student teaching aspect. Advisers and professors are accessible and knowledgeable.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2017

My experience at Arizona State University has been overwhelmingly positive over the course of my three-year program. With regards to the music school and faculty within the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, I have received incredible amounts of specialized attention. The opportunities for graduate students to grown and collaborate with peers is greater here than any other school I have been to thus far in my academic career, as well. The school of music at ASU is constantly looking for ways to grow and help its graduate students succeed, whether that is through various funding, academic course offerings, TA positions, or various other opportunities that arise. If you are looking for a high quality music program that values its graduate students, ASU deserves a high place of consideration.

Degree: Healthcare Informatics
Graduation Year: 2016

Arizona State has a very innovative online program. It allows you the flexibility of online learning while still working. You will learn a lot and the education is top notch. I have not regretted the opportunity of going back to school. Arizona State is a great University.
