Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

The Masters of Social Justice and Human Rights Program is dynamic with plenty of opportunity for internships and real-world experience working with social justice and human rights organizations. Opportunities for research and for international experience. The department does not offer a whole lot of financial aid options to help students finance their education other than taking out loans or searching for independent scholarship opportunities.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2019

ASU is a great place to attend graduate school. There are many opportunities for community involvement. The faculty are very passionate and easy to work with. Many of the faculty are established researchers in the field. If you are interested in research, there are so many opportunities to get involved. You will have a heavy workload and will be very busy. If you have time, the social life is great with lots to do especially during non-summer seasons. Weather is always nice except for a couple of months in the summer when the heat is pretty brutal. Also, downtown living is expensive (if you will be located on the downtown campus) and transportation to the surrounding areas is not ideal.

The pros of this graduate program are that it will provide my family and my community with a resource it does not have, which is access to ABA therapy for children with special needs, specifically autism spectrum disorder. The only con to my graduate program is the cost. I believe that is my only barrier at this time.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at Arizona State University. The program is quite good - there is a requirement for numerous courses to be taken for people like me who came directly to Ph.D program from bachelor' and I think it is necessary to prepare a student to become a researcher. The research environment is good - recently many new faculty has joined our department which is excellent.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I started at ASU in 2010 and at first I was not going to come for personal issues but am glad I did. Am proud of the education am getting! Very rigorous. I did my undergrad and Masters at UC Berkeley, I was able to take classes by faculty at ASU that I was reading while at Berkeley. This is a statement to the quality of faculty in my program.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are definitely the support you get from professors and career advisers. I feel that there are always innumerable experiences that are available to me. The workload is rigorous, but invaluable. I have learned so much in my graduate program and it was definitely the best decision I have made. Some cons are transportation and parking. The location of my school is downtown where there are many one-way streets and limited parking. I live too far to take advantage of public transportation. Another con is how expensive graduate school is and how there are very limited scholarship opportunities.

Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

Academic competitiveness - medium because I was able to get in with mediocre GRE scores (but I do have a 3.9 GPA, research, internships, and club involvement) Affordability of living -- Tempe, AZ has very affordable near-campus apartments/condos Campus safety -- very safe! Career support -- N/A for me because I've just started school here Education quality-- we have distinguished faculty in the physics and MSE department, especially if you are interested in electron microscopy Faculty accessibility and support -- lots of office hours and easy to get help if you need it (not just from the TAs) School use of tech -- not sure how to answer this, but I have a free subscription to Matlab and Mathematica, so that is good Social life -- research groups are tight knit and often have social gatherings Student diversity -- good! Surrounding area -- Mill ave. has great food and bars, close to Old Town Scottsdale and many hiking spots Financial aid -- full ride if you have competitive application Grad program value -- very high because affordability and quality of education; there are also a lot of industry ties since Phoenix is a "mini silicon valley" Workload -- high, but this is a good thing because you are getting a high-value education that will develop the skills you'll need to conduct your own research and/or coordinate projects and development in industry
