Student & Graduate Reviews

4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a great, hands on program. I get a lot of experience with aquaculture and a real quality education.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is a small program, so interaction is typically one-on-one, which is nice. The program is highly ranked, and the workload is difficult but rarely overwhelming. I'm overall very pleased with my graduate program, and Auburn University and the town of Auburn, Alabama are wonderful places!

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

Auburn's Master of Accountancy program is the best program I heard about while looking at graduate schools. You start the courses early, in the summer rather than fall, so that in the spring you take less classes and have more time to take the CPA exam. Auburn MAcc students have pass rates in the 80% and 90% for the CPA exam.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Auburn University is a prestigious school in Alabama. It was rated as the fifth hardest university to receive an A in any course. This rigorous academic level is complimented by Auburn's buzzing social scene. With Greek houses, thriving athletic departments, and numerous honor societies Auburn has a club or organization for everyone even their online students. Auburn is nestled in a quaint part of Alabama near shopping and larger cities such as Opelika, Alabama and Columbus, Georgia. However, these areas are not known for their safety and crime rates are at time high. While the crime rate is high near Auburn, the police in Auburn are always on top of their game. I have always felt safe when on campus for sporting events, to meet with professors, or just shopping at the Auburn bookstore. It is quite clear from my ability to acquire a job that my academic standing at Auburn is very valuable. A 4.0 standing at such a prestigious university is setting me apart from my peers. I believe that this institution will prepare me academically and professionally for the real world.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the pros of the program are the outstanding faculty. They are very caring and have much knowledge on the topics, and are willing to meet with you outside of class. The cons of this program would be possibly the lack of challenge I have felt so far. However, I know it is my first semester, and it will get much harder and more challenging.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2017

Kind of a boring place to live, though not too far from more interesting cities. Quality of the faculty is highly variable.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall, the program is good. We have distinguished faculties in their area. Only thing that is little on the downside is that there are only few faculties and very little chance to have diverse and advanced courses.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is short and intense, which will prepare you for working in a firm, large or small. The professors focus more on developing your ability to think comprehensively about situations from all angles, rather than teaching you how to do technical work, which has its own pros and cons. Overall, the professionals I have talked with are impressed with the way our graduates think and analyze situations and the solutions that they are able to propose and defend. If you are able to teach yourself CAD programs then you should have no problem finding work after graduation.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe the pros are definitely the academics and the challenges that appear to cultivate the learning process, along with friendly faculty, and a great surrounding environment. The cons may include the parking services, and the lack of financial aid for graduate students.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a great program that gives the students a lot of experience and opportunities for receiving a job after graduation. However, it is does not offer enough financial aid or scholarships to the students. Yet, there are tons of activities and support of the staff when needed.
