Student & Graduate Reviews

2.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

The focus on advocacy is really a great addition to the Communication Studies focus. The faculty are enjoyable and really do their best to highlight student's good works. Its still a new program, and although there is a lot of high rhetoric about how great the program is, one semester in I feel like 90% of this will be my responsibility on my own to make the most of this.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I wish the online program was a little more interactive, especially with the books that are stated as necessary for the class.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm just getting started, but, so far, it's been a rewarding but frustrating opportunity.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros include that this graduate program is all online which allows for flexibility in work schedule. The cons include no face to face contact with other students.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Pro's: 1. I can go to school and still take of my family. 2. The school program prepares me for my career in education. 3. The faculty is supportive. Con's: The financial aide is not so good.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2015

ASU offers an affordable graduate education to those who are in state. Phoenix is an affordable place to live, but the transportation and safety could be improved. The faculty in my department are extremely knowledge and helpful. They make themselves available to students and are genuinely concerned with our achievement. The workload is manageable, depending on the course and the instructor, and most classes focus on practical applications of the material to our field.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The institution invests in recruiting well-known researchers in the field. At least for my program, the faculty consists of a number of extremely well-known scholars in my field. These researchers/Ph.D. advisers provide solid training. The effectiveness of the training is especially evident when we attend conferences; the graduate students from our school are able to comment much more critically on research than other students from other programs.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2017

ASU's Department of English offers interesting, vigorous graduate classes from well-qualified, highly knowledgeable professors. The professors, staff, and other students offer a supportive community. The department is also increasing efforts and resources for giving graduate students their best chance on the job market. Most doctoral graduate students receive TAships and stipends, but the financial compensation isn't really enough to live on. There are not funding opportunities for masters students.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are the ability to take classes outside my degree. This helps me become interdisciplinary which is necessary to my focus. The course offerings need to be more diverse in topics and authors/texts used in the classroom. Oftentimes, it is the same old white men, or the "canonical" black author or Latino author. We need to stretch beyond just simply including one diverse text to more of them, plus a better understanding of them from that culture's perspective.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019
