Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I started my college career late in life. I am 54 years old and started my college life full time, after my husband died in 1995. I attended a local community college, then Eastern Illinois University moving on to the University of Wisconsin-Madison graduating in 2009. I put off furthering my education, as I felt I would never ben able to afford college. If I did further my education, I wanted to find a college where I would actually learn something new, to further my abilities in working with children. So many students take online courses and go through the motions, but never really learn. I decided on Arizona State University in Tempe, as this is where my daughter graduated. I had thought about the University of Wisconsin, but out of state tuition stopped me. When contacting Arizona State University, I stated that I did not know if I would be able to afford grad school. I work as a teacher, which is not a top paying profession where one could afford tuition. The college worked with me in regards to applying for the right major for me, which is Applied Behavior Analysis and helping me through every step to get into the college, the program and most of all to secure financial support to complete my degree. The college wants their students not only to enroll in their programs, but they want their students to become successful in their studies. As a student, I am given a success coach, free online tutoring, and other resources to help me with success in the program. I have never had this much support from a college to complete a program. I know, as a special education teacher, I am limited on time and this program through Arizona State University and all it has to offer, has assisted me in my success of my classes. I would recommend this program to anyone. The program I am taking will not only assist me in becoming a better teacher, but it will help me increase my salary in working with students outside of school, helping them become more successful in life. This is my life long journey in life, to help children who struggle. I am a mother of three children, two of which struggled with disabilities in school and know how important it is to find services for children. I thank Arizona State University for helping me reach my goals!

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2019

Arizona State University was great at working with my schedule and finances. Their curriculum was very easy to navigate. I was able to further my education online which was even better, I managed my workload according to my schedule. As a veteran it was amazing to have a veteran's center in site that quickly resolved any financial questions I had. Overall my experience has been great and I would recommend this university to anybody.

Degree: Physical Education
Graduation Year: 2019

The counselor that contacted me at the beginning of the process is extremely helpful and always makes time for me. She made sure that I had everything I needed and had me prepared for the first day of school. The teachers were also very helpful and had a passion for what they were teaching. They were willing to help the students and wanted to make sure they knew the class material. The website they have for students is easy to use and is very helpful. I recommend this program and school to everyone.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2019

I am currently in the Curriculum and Instruction (Applied Behavior Analysis) (MEd) at ASU online. I was very hesitant to take online classes because they can be very disconnected and have to self teach yourself everything. I was wrong and ASU online has made it very easy to receive support when necessary and also use the classmates for support. I will be starting my third class and look forward to learning from a different instructor. Online worked best for me, because it allowed me to work full time and receive the required 1500 hours of supervision to sit for the BACB state exam after I graduate with my masters. The professors treat you as adults and expect for you to turn in assignments when they are due. It has been a great experience and will be graduating Spring 2019/

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2019

After completing my first semester as a graduate student at Arizona State University (ASU), I am certain that I chose the right school to prepare me for my career as a speech-language pathologist. I had heard that the graduate program for Communication Disorders at ASU was a great program, but I did not fully understand what a great program it was until I experienced it for myself. The faculty members are diverse in their areas of expertise and have unique research experiences; some of which are currently taking place outside of the United States. Along with an impressive faculty, there are many opportunities to engage in research with this department through assistantships and volunteering. This semester alone I was informed of three different research opportunities that were looking for help! The program has also made it possible to gain clinical experience in a wide variety of settings beyond the campus clinic, including medical facilities, elementary, middle, and high schools, as well as private practices. In addition to a placement in one of these settings each semester, the program also offers five week rotations to expose students to their areas of interest. I am so thankful for the plethora of opportunities available to me through this program because that was definitely a high priority on my list of what I wanted in a graduate program. ASU also offers a bilingual/multicultural training emphasis. This was also something I was looking for in a program because I speak Spanish and love interacting with people from other cultures/ethnic backgrounds. This emphasis ensures that my practicum placements are with multilingual/multicultural populations and allows me to take extra classes related to this area. On the other side of the coin, there are several things that are less appealing about the program. However, I do not think they greatly deter from its quality. First, classes are only seven weeks with two seven-week classes in each half of the semester. I see this both as a pro and a con. A pro because the classes are done faster, and a con because the classes are very fast-paced. There were some weeks I wondered if I was retaining anything I was learning. Thankfully, the content from each class tends to overlap, so I was exposed to the same information multiple times. The professors also set up the classes so that we were provided practical resources to take with us into our careers and emphasized that we do not have to learn everything there in the classroom. Another aspect of the program I do not like as much is that we need to pay out of pocket for the various online resources we use to compile all of our required documents (e.g., vaccinations, CPR certifications etc.) and an online simulation we use in one of our classes. It would be nice if these costs could be included in our tuition and fees, but again, this is not something I find extremely detrimental to the quality of the program. Overall, ASU is a great university and has provided me with a positive experience in my pursuit of a masters degree. I am excited to start my next semester and learn more about the awesome field of Speech-Language Pathology!

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2019

Online learning inherently sounds like a sole-individual environment. At times, this would mean that I study alone at home, in the office or at the local Starbucks. Despite functioning in this setting, I chose to pursue graduate school online with Arizona State University (ASU). I was astounded to learn that I would not be alone for long. ASU has proven that distance cannot stop joint learning. I am continuously interacting with my classmates. Each course has synchronous meetings with 3-4 classmates and I am engaged with different peers from all over the world. This connects me to a continuous source of multicultural experiences to learn from. Learning about my classmates is molding my future. I am eager to start classes. In the infancy of my program, I am hungering for collective learning from encouraging professors. Feedback from professors is fluid and can be utilized in class and in the workplace. I do not feel pressure to produce papers with continuous citations, rather I am encouraged to explore the field in a professional thought provoking manner. This helps me apply my coursework to my employment. I recommend Arizona State University because I can directly apply what I am learning with what I am doing, and I am not doing it alone.

ASU has been very helpful in making sure I understand all of the materials presented and that I have what I need to succeed via academic coaches. ASU makes sure I have all the resources I need whether it be academic resources or job opportunities for the future.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

I study at Master of Music: Music Therapy degree program at Arizona State University. This course is a concentration program for 3 years. The music therapy courses at ASU are offered in a fast paced curriculum so that the student can prepare for the professional requirements within the first 1.5 years attending, and this includes many clinical and academic courses as well as advanced musicianship. After taking classes and internship only for 1.5 years at ASU, students can apply the exam for The Certification Board for Music Therapists and can be professional music therapists. Students usually need to study 4 years at other universities in the US. Therefore, Music Therapy course at ASU provides a good system to save tuition. Students at ASU can learn a variety of methods about music therapy although most universities in the US only provide one or two specfic methods about music therapy. At ASU, small quizes and assignments are evaluated for the final grade. I studied every day, submitted all assingments and tried to take quizes very hard. I liked the system. Therefore, I got good academic records. Professors are very kind and supportive. No students give up this course and change the course until finishing it. I also enjoyed the internship program at Arizona State University clinic. The internship provides the experience in a full time work setting where students gain the valuable skills in applying theoretical knowledge to the real world setting, under the supervision of a board-certified music therapist. I mainly worked with children with developmental disabilities. Through music therapy sessions, they improved their conditions. For example, children with autism gradually improved the skill to communicate with other people. I felt happy whenever I saw their smile. Thanks to all kind staffs, I had wonderful experiences every day. My main instrument is piano. Aside from music therapy classes, I took jazz piano lessons. It is important for music therapists to enhance musician skills. Students can take their interesting classes such as performance, composition, music history. The system is also attractive. Therefore, I highly recommed Arizona State Universty to students. ASU is ranking No1 in the US for innovation field. Now I finished the course for 1.5 years. Therofore, I will take the exam and become a professional music therapist. My dream is to become the linking bridge of the world as a music therapist for helping people.

Arizona State University has an exceptional online program with various graduate degree offerings. From the application process to the enrollment process, you are guided each step of the way. ASU assigns each student a "coach" who is available to answer questions or help you maneuver the d landscape of online learning. The financial aid office is very knowledgeable and helpful. When I asked about a specific grant, they researched it and responded to me quickly. The blackboard platform allows students to keep track of assignments as well as to see financial aid and important messages. Additionally, ASU seeks to connect learners from all over the country using Adobe Connect to collaborate and discuss learning.
