4.5 out of 5.0
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.
4.5 out of 5.0
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.
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.
