Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

My online graduate program allows me to keep my job and complete my education at the same time without having to comprise. On the other hand, the choice of classes to choose from is not very rich. The subjects are very limited.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The ASU InMAC program is Special Education allows students without an undergraduate degree in education to work as teachers while they earn their master's degree. This classroom experience has been invaluable to me and the support that I have gotten from my mentor professor is better than I could have ever expected. The coursework that I am given is immediately applicable to my career in education. I also believe that the use of portfolio assessments in this program is a much better indicator of what I have learned than traditional assessments. The professors are invested in our learning and always assessable when we need them. While overall I am satisfied with the program, I have difficulty affording the tuition on a teacher's salary and have not gotten much support from financial aid. I also feel that ASU could do more to provide networking opportunities for students, particularly as a non-traditional student. That being said, I would recommend this program to anyone interested in an alternative track to a career in education.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I have completed one Masters online with ASU in 2014. I am now working on my second Masters. I really enjoy everything that the ASU Masters program offers, but I am having a very hard time with Summer financial aid. I have a large family and do not find there are many ways to obtain additional aid to help me with summer sessions.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

The ASU online history program faculty and staff work very hard to keep the students feeling connected and informed. The classes are interesting and relevant.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2017

The Master's of Nonprofit Leadership and Management program is relatively new to Arizona State University. The students and the faculty in this area of study are very diverse and opinionated. Attending class in person allows for open ended debates and discussion to open one's eyes to new perspectives. The con of this graduate programs is that certain courses are not offered in certain semesters, making it slightly difficult to create a plan for graduation.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I think ASU offers a pretty great 4+1 graduate program. It allows me to work towards my graduate degree while finishing my undergraduate degree, so I can have a head start on finishing the graduate program. It also helps me financially because I save quite a bit of money. I also like that I have the ability to work closely with staff members and perform a thesis if I would like to, but I also have the option of taking an exam at the end of my program instead. It is nice to have both options because as I student I can choose one that better suits my lifestyle and abilities.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2019

I gave the campus life categories one star due to the fact that I am a non-resident living in California. I am enrolled in the Masters of Arts in Criminal Justice Online degree program. My experience while enrolled in this school has been excellent and I find the ease of the online program very beneficial to my lifestyle. I work full-time in my field of study and ASU allows me to do my school work on my own time. All in all, great school for graduate studies!

Great exposure to a variety of courses and programs; many opportunities for development, both personally and professionally; convenient options for coursework. Fairly expensive overall.
