I loved having the opportunity to be a TA, and I greatly appreciated the financial support the job provided.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Very affordable online program. Workload is very manageable with a full time job. It isn't the highest caliber of program, but for working adults looking to fit an advanced degree around busy work and home schedules at a great price, this is a great fit.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my graduate program is that I have the added flexibility of taking my courses online. Online courses allow me to spend time with my family as well as complete my homework on my terms. Granted there are deadlines one would need to meet; however, it is nice to have time for life outside of school. The cons of graduate school is contemplating on whether it is worthwhile to go through the added stress of completing it. My undergrad experience at a different school was more organized and engaging. ASU is totally different. Even though it is online our semesters are broken down as if we are completing the courses on campus. From what I have experienced most online programs are more flexible and allow the student to take one course at a time to absorb the information they are learning. ASU makes students take multiple courses.

Degree: Business

As a Business Analysis M.s student, it is challenging to afford the tuition and text books required to get through the next two years of my professional development. I'm grateful to Graduate Programs for being so supportive.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2016

Arizona State University is an excellent school for their family and human development program. I like that different ethnic groups are present and I love working with different people to learn and participate in wonderful class discussions. One thing I do not like about the program is that there are so many students in one class. Some classwork do not get graded in a timely fashion because the professors and their TA's have a lot of papers to grade, so this causes much work to not be graded quickly.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

Many of these items don't apply if you are taking an on line program. Overall, very professional staff and orientation. First class went well, although my group believed that grading assignments was subjective rather than objective as it was based.

Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The School of Life Sciences at ASU is a supportive, interdisciplinary, and diverse environment. Faculty are invested in grad students' education, and grad students take initiative to create new opportunities in the forms of training workshops, grants, and program policies. The biggest con is low funding. Unless grad students receive an external fellowship, they will spend much of their time on Teaching Assistant responsibilities. TAships are also being cut, though, which means that TAs have more lab sections and more students to teach, leaving even less time for research. Not surprisingly, the average time to graduate is as high as 6-7 years.
