Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Arizona State University can be overwhelming for some. It is easy to get lost in the shuffle. The cons are there are moderate to larger class sizes and the availability of certain classes is minimal. Due to their phenomenal graduate programs I was able to find my niche and continue on my path to success. The level of professionalism between the staff and the students is great. Professors are continually pushing their students to the limit asking them to think beyond the box. ASU also has some of the top of the line scientific equipment providing students the opportunity to learn technical skills that will be used in the professional world.

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of ASU Public Affairs and policy is the diversity of faculty and student research interests. They really encourage critical thinking and diversity of ideas and I loved that. This school is definitely up and coming with lots of potential for amazing things. The cons is that it is a fairly newer program compared to some of the older, more traditional PA schools. The school has gone through a lot of changes lately but things seems to be settling down now.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The schedule is a pro and a con for this graduate program. I wish that some courses were offered online. The good part is that the classes only meet one day a week. The teachers seem helpful and dedicated to their students.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

The Public History MA Program at Arizona State University is a competitive program that is both challenging and rewarding. The professors are accessible and willing to help their students with any questions or academic and professional help. The students are also welcoming and there are often opportunities to mingle with fellow students and discuss both academic and personal endeavors. Students are encouraged to publish academic papers and attend conferences. While the program has mostly overlooked technological advances in public history they have recently hired new staff to address this and seem to be improving greatly in this area. Overall the Public History grad program at ASU is both challenging and pertinent to those wishing to enter Public History.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

Having personal advisors is a good resource.There is a strong sense of community within the program. I was able to have good friends on the first day. My only complaint is that the program consists of mostly of women. I would love to see a bit more diversity in the program.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

A cost effective means to an end. I did learn quite a bit in both the classroom and during the internships, however, there is definite room for improvement.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Going from an Undergraduate to Graduate student within a year at the same university, I was able to pick out the differences between the two almost instantly. The program I am in takes great pride in ensuring all students are set up for success when they leave with a graduate degree. Overall, I have felt great care and understanding from the teachers I have had. Although the academia can be challenging along with a heavy workload, all of the work seems to be appropriate and is generally enjoyable. The cons I can think of in the program greatly stand out, specifically the massive numbers of students they have in the programs, creating work overload for academic counselors and field placement coordinators. The people I have communicated with have always been friendly, but it has been apparent that some concerns have mine have been low on list. and when preparing for class and internships this may be a stressful circumstance. Another con is the lack of scholarships available for all types of graduate students within their scholarship pool, as most of them seem to be for specific demographics that do not apply to the majority of students. All in all, I feel it is a great graduate program to be in and it definitely has more pros versus cons.
