Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Their online program was great since I lived out of state and i found their online classroom to be easy to use and manuveur. Most of the professors I had were very understanding and helped me to learn when things may have become difficult. My overall experience was very positive except for the administrating office for scheduling that messed up my classes when I was looking for one direction and got another.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2006

Good technical background. Some professors with real world experience in practicing architecture. As a woman it could be difficult to get the same level of attention as male students.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

Ball State's online Master's program for Educational Leadership was the perfect fit for me! With a newborn and a full time job, I was able to manage the work due to the flexibility of online classes. I could choose the pace at which I wanted to complete the degree, which was also a perk. There seemed to be an ideal balance of reading, writing, discussion, and assessment in most courses. I am a student that communicated with my professors regularly - for both minor and major questions. I appreciated that professors were available for office hours and via email. I completed the degree in less than two years; and passed the Building Level Administrator's Test required for licensure on the first try without purchasing additional study materials. I am currently in my second year as an Assistant Principal at the high school level!

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

Ball State University has figured out the education field. I took both my undergrad and am currently taking my masters in education. I have been in the education field for 11 years and I can say they I was prepared better than most educators. I was in the classroom multiple times, made to think through the education process, and completely prepared for a career in education.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2006

The professors in the Communication Studies program really care about their students. They provide individual attention, help when you are struggling, and encourage you to meet the rigorous standards. This program helped me become more confident in all areas of my life.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

It was okay. It was online, so it wasn't a very personal experience for me. But the degree helped me find a good job.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2020

I really loved the fact that I could complete all my graduate courses online. I'm a single mother and I work full time. Taking classes on campus would have been tremendously hard for me. Ball State offers a program that fits mine and my sons needs. I'm able to apply things I learn from class right into my classroom at work.
