Student & Graduate Reviews

4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The School of Sustainability offers a unique program with the flexibility to pursue cutting-edge research and access to excellent resources and professors
2.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of the graduate program is to find a career I am more engaged in and have the opportunity for a better salary. The cons are the program is very general and not necessarily specific to the field I would like to pursue.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

It has been a year since I started my graduate education in ASU and it has been an extremely beneficial experience. It was difficult at the beginning because I came from another University where the teaching style was different. In ASU, you have to look for and build your own knowledge but you have many available sources to successfully achieve that.
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is very convenient, providing a master's degree in only one year. This is done by integrating part of your undergrad education into the grad program's curriculum. It's a program that is on the newer side, so they don't have everything worked out, but they aren't afraid to admit that and try to make things better. Having said all that, the program doesn't seem to have much credibility in the industry I aim to go in. They most likely accept anyone that applies because they are desperate to begin growing the program.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros - competitive and highly academic program where you learn a lot and are surrounded by intelligent, like-minded, ambitious people Cons - there is not enough time in the day to get everything completed
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

low cost flexible program great strength-based focus
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The MS-BA program is especially valuable because it focuses on the application of analytics in business versus IT which is great for me because I want to eventually have my own business and this course helps me develop a data-driven yet entrepreneurial mindset. The only con I can think of is that the location of the program is Arizona and Arizona is hot!
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The Graduate Program for Social Work at ASU is highly connected to the surrounding community, which is extremely important.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Arizona State University has given me the opportunity to further my studies and work towards a Masters degree in Special Education. The faculty has been extremely helpful throughout my first year in grad school. They have excellent communication and they encourage us to apply practices taught in class to every day classrooms. Being at a downtown location, parking and transportation can be difficult at times in such a large city, such as Phoenix. The only negative I would say is that I wish they would provide students with more parking spaces to help support our finances.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

What's great about ASU is the size of the university. While I had toured at other universities, they didn't really offer "specialized" curriculum. Because there are so many students in the Aerospace program, ASU was able to provide a larger variety of Aerospace specific classes (not just combined with other engineering majors). The nightlife is great. Mill Avenue is always packed on the weekends and Scottsdale is thought to be a "mini Vegas." The only downside is trying to live within biking distance to campus. If you want to live close and in a nice place it's expensive. If you want to live in a nicer, cheaper place, it's too far to bike and not in the best area.
