Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
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: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

I love ASU and the accessibility that they provide me through online classes, I work full time to its nice to have class on my terms and around my schedule.
4.92 out of 5.0
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!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

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

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

Love ASU but online is a lot different that in person. But it is a great campus.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Haven't spent enough time on campus to leave a solid pros/cons list.
4.92 out of 5.0
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.
4.08 out of 5.0
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.
