Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

These are my first graduate courses so right now my expectations are high and unknown. So, far they have been introductory and very interesting. I know that I will learn a lot.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

The School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University offers a great deal of support for working professionals who wish to continue their education. With a combination of online and evening courses, the graduate program allows for great flexibility to ensure you stay on track to complete your degree. The graduate program is located in downtown Phoenix, which allows for diverse networking opportunities.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I am pursuing Master's degree in Electrical Engineering at Arizona State University- Tempe Campus. Pros: The quality of education, accessibility to faculty and the resources on campus and the overall campus life is great. The students population is diverse that presents an opportunity to learn about their cultures and ideas on various topics. I am immensely satisfied by the Engineering College and the resources that it provides. Cons: The only thing I don't like is the high number of students in a graduate class in engineering.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

While the University as a whole may get some flank for being such a huge school, the law school has a very intimate setting. You will get to know all of your classmates. The law school has done a great job in its recruitment of professors from around the country and has some of the best professors in their respective fields. I was most impressed, during my first year, with the faulty support. My adviser guided me through the application process for internships and helped me outline a schedule of opportunities that I needed to look out for. Also, because of the school's extensive alumni network, you will get many opportunities to network with firms, public entities, and government.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the graduate program at Arizona State University Online, are that you can expect a faculty member to answer your questions in a very quick manner and the quality of service that faculty and staff gives their students is impeccable. The only con that I can think of for my program is that classes fill up very fast and it is hard to get the appropriate classes to graduate on time.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

Attending Arizona State University as an undergraduate as well gives me a natural bias to the graduate program at ASU. Tempe is a great location with incredible weather and activity. If you are outdoorsy or active it's a great place to live and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The social scene is very fun and I have yet to explore all of it despite living here for 5 years because there are so many options. As far as the program goes, I wouldn't want to receive my Masters education anywhere else. The level of prestige is apparent amongst the faculty, being well-educated and accomplished accountants. Though rigorously academic they genuinely take interest in their graduate students and don't let their students fail. My current job, which is also my dream job, was attained through networking from the head of the Masters program and one of the main professors. The faculty is completely immersed to the Phoenix market and leaving the program unemployed is highly unlikely.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this program is that there are some stellar teachers who take the art of teaching very seriously and apply that to their own courses. I've had the opportunity to do some very interesting hands on activities. The cons of the program is that the music education courses are all at 4:30pm or later for working teachers, but the other requirements such as music history or theory are at different time throughout the day. This limits the selection for working professionals.
