Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The School of Social Work provides a supportive environment for doctoral students. Faculty and staff are available to answer questions regarding my various projects. However, the larger university does not have ample networking for PhD students, especially those who are from out of state.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2017

ASU is top of the line when it comes to online Graduate programs. It is affordable, challenging and convenient.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2017

My grad program is set up (right now) so that I can take four hours. I cannot receive any financial aid unless I am taking 5 hours. This is an online program and I am teaching high school full time while completing the degree. I was informed I would have to take an elective. I guess teaching full time and taking four hours isn't enough, I need to add another to the mix because the government doesn't believe taking four hours is enough. Super awesome. The student support is great however. They were extremely helpful when I would call. Minus not being able to reach an English adviser...

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is extremely challenging which is a pro and a con in itself. I will not know completely how I feel about my education until I graduate and enter into my job field but so far, I am pleased. My teachers live and breathe design which helps me in so many ways. I wish there were some more options for class choices in the graduate program but I realize this is a challenging thing as the program is only three years old this year. I do believe I have a great enough education already to work in my field and I know how to juggle several projects at once because of the work load I have to keep for my classes. I think this program is one of the best in the country for someone to renew themselves in their career field and learn something different from their undergraduate. That cannot be said for many other programs!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

ASU's graduate nursing program is ranked one of the best in the nation. Admission is competive, and the program is challenging. The instructors are very supportive and want the students to do well and succeed.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I absolutely love the way the Master of Education: Applied Behavioral Analysis program is designed. There is a lot crammed into the 7.5 week semesters, but the instructors and other students are great supports. I highly recommend this program!
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I think that, in terms of the diversity of students and the quality of education, ASU excels. However, I would not say too much for the affordability of attending it since it is pretty expensive to live on campus or to pursue a degree there.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

The Pro's are it is what you choose to make of it The Con's when you are doing you will have to make something of your experience on your own
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Arizona State University is a very large school, and qualities of individual programs will likely vary due to its large size. Speaking for social science research, I appreciate that my tuition is waived, I receive health insurance, and am provided a teaching assistantship with stipend for the school year and summer terms. However, I wish there was more support for career opportunities outside academia. This may be a common complaint in Ph.D. programs, but is notable at ASU.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a new program so there are obviously some kinks that need to be worked out but overall the professors and resources available are great. Professors make themselves available outside of the classroom and provide professional advice. Campus is in a great spot and there are lots of networking opportunities through the school and businesses located in the valley. Overall I'm very pleased with the education I am receiving!
