Student & Graduate Reviews

3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

Most of the graduate classes are taught by the same teachers I had as an undergraduate, making it easier to build relationships with them. The classes are only offered once a year so if you miss enrollment or something happens you have to wait a full year to continue. The program is very competitive.

Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program are that all of my professors have experience teaching in classrooms where English language learners are present, and I have often found that my professors are either English language learners themselves, or come from families who speak English as a second language. Another pro is that all of the coursework is very applicable to the real world and I can easily see how it connects to my classroom. The only con of my graduate program is that the order of the classes is difficult to switch depending upon when the classes are offered.

The school is great, but seems to put too much focus on the success of the university and the students time spent at the university rather than success following the students graduation. They also put too much focus into undergraduate reformation of courses as opposed to graduate and undergraduate. The graduate courses seem to be there for show and not necessary. The surrounding area is fantastic as are the people. Living alone as a student is expensive, and a tiered system of pay for graduate students as teaching and research assistants is not ideal. The tiered system is two-part and is said to be an "incentive" to get items completed on time. This simply shows the schools inability to make a confident decision in choosing graduate students. There is plenty of focus on having a diverse student body and providing technology to all students. Too much time is spent by students online as screens are linked to stress and depression. This also takes away from the appreciation of what things actually are. Pictures fall short of explanations in many cases.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The flexibility of completing this important certification masters degree online has helped immeasurably. Not only am I capable of maintaining my 55 hour work week to pay for school, but I am also able to move out-of-state with out it affecting my degree completion. However, an entirely online degree does struggle without student-teacher interactions, class involvement, & peer relationships in the field.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program allows individuals to carry a full time job while also enrolled because of how they schedule the classes.

The Marriage and Family Therapy program at ASU is fast-paced due to the accelerated nature. The professors are the directors and they are wholeheartedly invested in the program and the quality of education. The program provided internships after the first semester is over and the internships carry through the following year. It is a fairly difficult program but it provides the necessary tools in the MFT field!

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2017

While the program isn't the most prestigious in the country, the faculty members, especially those in my immediate field, are world class. While this means that competition with fellow graduate students may not provide as strong of a source of motivation as those at Stanford, say, there is the upside of being able to stand out among your peers and also be recognized more easily by your academic elders.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The school of sustainability has a great graduate program offering interdisciplinary routes to solve some of the worlds greatest issues. They are more focussed on the environmental and social side though. Faculty is great though over-subscribed and sometimes unavailable.
