Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a little expensive, however you have access to the latest ESRI software and additional education modules from ESRI (creators of GIS). This program offers additional programming skills highly sought after by top companies in the field.

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2017

The coursework is rigorous but you know that you are being prepared for the real world work. The rigor may be daunting to some but those who have graduated always come back and say that they were well prepared for their careers. It would be helpful if the school could get more partnerships with local businesses to help graduate students with finding internships.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The MEng Modeling & Simulation Online Graduate Program at ASU is one of the leading and innovative programs in the CSE and engineering field. It is on the forefront of developing a specific Service Oriented Architecture and Service Oriented Computing curriculum that prepares students for the future of Web Computing. All businesses will be utilizing this architecture as the future of Cloud Computing technology develops further. The offering of online courses is a tremendous advantage, and further shows ASU's commitment to remain on the leading edge of education. There truly have not been any downsides to this program that I have experienced.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

Due to it being an online program, some of these things do not apply. Just finished my first term and found it sufficiently challenging.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The hybrid setup of my program is what made me come to ASU. The faculty in my program come with wonderful experience and I am blessed to have the opportunity to learn from them. I like that I can live in my home state and yet attend school full time while still having contact with faculty. In this day and age, our lives are so busy that a hybrid program just makes sense. On the flip side, it is incredibly hot in Phoenix during the summer. That is a small price to pay to get everything I was looking for.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program in Journalism at Arizona State University is offered through the prestigious Walter Cronkite School of Jornalism and Mass Communicatin. This Journalism school ranks fifth in USA and offers a complete package of professional and academic exposure through its high tech labs and field work in Phoenix, Arizona and also in Washington D.C. Moreover, students end their Masters' program by getting the opportunity to intern at reknowned media houses and also of creating their work portfolios under the aegis of faculty members who already have created a niche for themselves in the media industry. So, in totality, the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication promises its students a bright future ahead.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I think this is a wonderful program for anyone currently involved with higher education or looking to get involved.The courses cover a wide variety of subjects that prepare students for any field within higher education. This program has existed for quite some time, however in recent years they have begun revamping the program to make it more relevant and more competitive with other programs around. The courses are very well put together and the professors are very knowledgeable. The course work is not over bearing and the program is designed to be about a year and a half to two years in the program. The vast majority of the courses being in the afternoon making it manageable to retrain a full time job and complete the program. Additionally, the program advisers assist and encourage students to get positions within the university. The program even has a practicum competent that allows and encourages students to get experience in other areas of the college outside of their current position. Overall this is a great program for aspiring higher education and post-secondary administrators.
