Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

The graduate program is very comprehensive. The pro is that real world experience is taught in the classroom through projects and invited speakers. However, there needs to be more effort for graduate cohort cohesion. Maybe because I am a woman I felt isolated from my peers. Additionally, as an older student it was an additional challenge to relate to others. Lastly, the engineering school is mostly foreign men. So that also greatly contributed to the feeling of "otherness". Luckily though my advisor is really great and makes his best effort to be supportive of my experience. I have seen that at my graduate institution and that is an invaluable part if successfully completing a program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I am enrolled in the Masters of Social Work program at Arizona State University in downtown Phoenix. Overall, it is an excellent program with challenging curriculum and supportive, knowledgeable faculty in the field. Transportation and parking is a pain but the small campus size makes up for the limited parking.

Graduation Year: 2016

Although I am attending an online Graduate program at Arizona State University, I still feel highly connected to the campus. ASU sends constant updates about the happenings on campus and the achievements ASU has been recognized for. There are counselors and and academic coaches who reach out to me to ensure I am receiving what I need as a distance student. The only con of this program may be that there are limited opportunities to interact with fellow Graduate students, which I enjoy very much.
3.0 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

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.
