Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The Flexibility of the MSW program is very appealing, however some required classes are not offered on multiple days. The supportive staff in the Social work office have been a blessing as well. The only con I can really speak of is the high cost of parking. I received my undergraduate degree from ASU and I returned 18 years later for my masters because I love the school.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

Being able to work on your course material at a time that fits in to you own schedule is perhaps the greatest benefit. The teachers are all very good with communication and email. The students all participate on message boards and that facilitates better conversations about course material. One downside is the lack of social atmosphere and colleague relationships for networking.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is very manageable and the majority of the professors are great. There are some professors who are not as caring as they are contracted and not as focused on helping the students. The only other area I feel needs improvement is the career area should be more accessible and helpful. Aside from that the director Shannon of Criminology is amazing and I am grateful for the opportunity.

Degree: Social Sciences

Arizona State University is a one of the leading universities in the nation for Sustainability, which is the program that I will be studying. There are many amazing opportunities that are available to students.

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.

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.
