Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
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.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

ASU is a great school for graduate education, challenging and a great learning environment.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I am in the advance standing program and I believe it is a great option to a fast track graduate degree, but it is very limited in scheduling options and internship. So far all teachers are great. The summer part of program can be difficult, but is expected.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros are that this program focuses specifically on technology in developing countries and how that works to strengthen the socio-economic and political structures to create sustainable development. I cannot comment on any cons because this program has been much more gratifying that I thought it would be. I am able to focus on the social justice and humanitarian issues in the world system and how that relates to poverty and inequality.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

ASU downtown is a great campus. It is safe, diverse, has a campus feel to it, and the professors are great.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2019

My program allows to me fulfill my goals as I see plausible. All the faulty members are willing to assist me in anyway possible to meet these goals. It is a newly instituted program at Arizona State University making funding difficult to find. With time, there is promise that the program will be successful and a great interdisciplinary outlet for students who cannot find a language program with in their interests.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: The program offers a great deal of flexibility in the field of study and allows students to focus on their interests in the field of Biomedical Engineering. The professors are supportive and are always willing to offer help or guidance to students. Cons: The cost of tuition is high and the Tempe area can be dangerous at times. The campus is open, allowing easy access to anybody, although the campus provides security guards to aid with student safety.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

pros:Excellent teaching staff Cons: no financial aid for international students
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great program! It is very competitive! I am in the 3+ Visual Communication and Design program which allows students with undergraduate degrees seek a graduate degree in something different. The students take a year and 10 weeks (the +) and study with the undergraduate students, competing against and learning aside them and then the last 2 years are the graduate program other students can take.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

My online web browser is sometimes not supported with my school's web portal. This can be frustrating when access to certain resources is denied. However, I find the quality of support through phone and email is very satisfactory. The staff at ASU is genuinely supportive and willing to answer questions about financial aid.
