Love ASU but online is a lot different that in person. But it is a great campus.

I haven't spent enough time in the program to be able to give a strong pros and cons list yet.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

I am working towards my Master's of Arts degree in Criminal Justice. I feel as though the classes that I have taken so far are very interesting and they challenge me to think differently which has been successful. The teachers are very interactive and they always provide students with a distinct sense of knowledge. One con that I have noticed is that the content is not diversified. I would like to see more projects incorporated into the curriculum instead of discussion boards and exams to help students gain a better understanding of the information given.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I am in the four plus one program at ASU. The largest benefit is that the Master's program is only one additional year. This saves time and money normally spent on a master's degree. The resources at ASU in terms of funding and professors with diverse fields of expertise is great.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

Our program has exceptional faculty who are extremely knowledgable in our field. One limitation to our program is that our clinic is growing rapidly, and we are limited to the space that we currently have.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

Our graduate program has exceptional faculty who are extremely knowledgable in our field. The major limitation to our program is that our clinic is rapidly expanding, and we are limited to the amount of space in which we can serve our patients.

Competitive education in a competitive degree, but expensive with little financial aid.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

As an online student, I am delighted by how much the school tries to make sure that online students have access to all the same resources. Very supportive teachers.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros of the program: Biomimicry is an innovative and emerging field of sustainability. It is a flexible program that allows you to design your academic schedule around your personal lifestyle. It brings like-minded people of multidisciplinary backgrounds from around the world to connect and collaborate. Though competitive, the program provides the opportunity for professional training/certification and in-person immersion workshops alongside the Masters. The 24 hour technical service is a plus. Cons of the program: The program is quite expensive for an online program. I would like to see more opportunities for funding: scholarship, grant, research assistantships, etc. The perks of being an on-campus student does not necessarily provide the same access on the web platforms. Personal engagement with your peers and professors is limited, especially with the high numbers of participants (this is somewhat addressed with the help of TAs). The interface and interaction of the blackboard online education could be more engaging, interactive, and intuitive. The mobile apps need some help as they do not function as well as the web platform. I would like to see online education work similarly/seamlessly as free online education platforms like MOOC/EdX/Coursera. Though fairly new, I would like to see more connection of the main campus services (ASU-coach) to the Biomimicry Center at ASU better integrated with the Masters students. I feel disconnected from the University.
