Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros is that it somewhat helped with networking and expanding knowledge which could possibly open more doors career-wise hopefully. The cons is that it is very expensive and coming from a family with not a lot of money it's extremely hard to pay for it.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

I really enjoy being part of the CICS program. My professors are excellent and always available to help me with anything i need. At CICS we have built a very close community and the programs Alumni actively recruit from the program for jobs.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a very new MFA program in glass, there are a few bumps in the road, but there is generous financial support, the faculty is great, and there's a great little community in the art school. Muncie isn't the most exciting place in the world but its kind of a perfect place to focus on your graduate studies!

Ball State provided me with the opportunity to receive a great education online while I was working as a full time teacher! The faculty and staff were extremely helpful and were always available to answer any questions, comments, or concerns!

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

This graduate program allows students to obtain their Master's degree (in Accounting) in one year. It covers a lot of material. It allows students to go into depth and discuss the content thoroughly. We are able to apply the content to real-world situations.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty I have worked with are unbelievably helpful and knowledgeable. When I entered the Masters program in clinical psychology, not only was I offered an assistance-ship that included a stipend, I was given a tuition reimbursement, but also a 500 dollar credit to use towards my on-campus housing. Unfortunately this is not enough for me to live off of and due to the nature of my assistance-ship and my degree requirements I am unable to get a second job. Ball State has gone above and beyond what I expected, especially where their staff and faculty are concerned, but they do not offer graduate scholarships.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall, the program has much to offer its graduate students. There is great opportunity to research and learn all within the field of counseling psychology. It is a small program so students will get the attention they need.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

This is my first semester and my first time taking online classes. The professors have been helpful and provided interesting and challenging course work that is relevant to my career pursuits. I went to Ball State for undergrad over ten years ago and the experience was so positive that I returned when I decided to pursue my graduate degree.
