Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
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.

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.

3.5 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.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2017

It is a fairly new program that allows graduates with a background other than architecture to pursue a masters degree for Landscape Architecture. The classes are comprehensive and rigorous, as the summer semester is mostly accelerated courses designed to get us on track with other graduate students within a year.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this graduate program are that receiving a MSW allows a student great flexibility in terms of choosing a career path. While it is certainly possible to enter the field of Social Work, students may use their MSW to gain experience in counseling and therapy methods, and continue a career in those fields. This program offers field experience in the form of internships each year. Students are placed in agencies according to their career interests, ambitions, and plans. While the program is not inexpensive, the costs are very similar to what is required of undergraduate students in terms of tuition and fees. Another advantage of this program is one's ability to use the light rail transportation system that runs between downtown Phoenix, Tempe, and west Mesa. One con of this program is that the amount of courses required each year and the two days of field experience/internship each week make it somewhat difficult for students to hold down a full-time job while part of the program. I was able to be flexible with my work schedule partly because I only work 3-4 days per week, but I imagine it isn't as easy for every student.

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

The university has established a unique development program that is very interdisciplinary in nature. The experience of the program as well as the caliber of the professors make it a superior program. However, studying in Arizona is very challenging to most people. It is quite hot.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

ASU Social Work programs is one of the best ones in the country. It comes with as much work as you can expect in a grad programs, so it really depends on your commitment whether you do well or not. Cost of living is low (in Tucson) and social aspects are good.
