Degree: Business

ASU has a great reputation; especially the W.P. Carey School of Business. I am glad and proud to have attended such a highly recognized school within such a well-known university.

ASU was a great school with great networking opportunities. The large size can make it more difficult in some cases/classes but overall I am very happy I attended.

This was for the evening program and did not feel as comprehensive as the full time program may have been.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

This semester will be my first on campus, I began school while living out of state and greatly appreciate the regular communication and assistance of my advisors throughout my studies. The downside to the program that I have found thus far is more towards the financial opportunities for part time students, even in the attempt to become full time, having access and regular information to scholarship/grant/fellowship opportunities. That being said, the program is excellent in regular communication with upcoming events, both volunteer and job offerings, course offerings for the semester, and ways to become more involved. The surrounding area has a variety of amenities, but this can also be somewhat problematic if you're looking to park close to or on campus depending on events being hosted in the area - again though, the light rail is available. The campus has made moves to be accommodating towards their students. I am actually in a concurrent program and hope to graduate with two Masters. I feel as though the professors as well as those advising seek to create an environment that is both challenging and supportive as students seek to gain further knowledge, experience, and expertise.

The program offers a wide range of relevant courses, many top-class Faculty members offer their support and resources for learning. As always in life, what you take from the program depends on your own motivation and willingness to allocate your time and effort. If you go to ASU to get your PhD - recognize early on that you have a vast amount of resources at your disposal but you need to be active and results-oriented to take full advantage of them :). Good luck!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

The problem I have is that it is almost impossible to take care of my responsibilities outside of school (like paying utilities and feeding my kids) and finish the program. With the amount of returning students there are I would think that who ever designs these programs would keep us in mind when doing so

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

I have just recently been accepted to ASU, and will being in a few weeks. So far I have been impressed with the support I have received from ASU, there has been great communication, and I look forward to starting my courses. I am excited for this Curriculum and Instruction Program that will help me work towards my BCBA. There were very few programs I could find that would offer both a Masters of Education and the courses I need to apply for a BCBA simultaneously.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2016

I had a really great professor who was an outstanding teacher. However, I would have liked more options for courses and more hands on experience.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program at Arizona State University is perfect for the working professional. The main issues with the program is the lack of diverse teaching tools to enhance the classroom experience. Also, there is not a consistency in the types of classes are offered; such as, offering similar class styles every semester to allow working students to plan. Since the campus is spread across various locations, having a pan-campus experience is difficult due to the limited amount of public transportation. This can limit the social life component. A plus side is the amazing value on off-campus housing.
