4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I love being a graduate student at Boise State. The faculty is great, and teaches from their own experiences working in social work. The cohort-style of the program lends itself t to building a tight-knit social network. The schedule is tough; it wouldn't be feasible to hold a full-time job while in this program. However, I feel like I am getting a good education at a GREAT value. And, Boise is a great city to live in with lots to do.
2.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

I chose the program because I had heard some good feedback online. It seemed like a great value for the money. My first course was excellent. I have worked in the industry I am studying and I find that this program does not provide me the technical skills I will need to be competitive. Ive been shocked at the amount of theory and reading versus creation we have been asked to do. It is especially disappointing because my program is about developing effective and practical online education.

4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I would highly recommend the Executive MBA program to a high performer who has 15 years+ work experience who would like to reach new levels. Great non-silo approach.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I live in Twin Falls, which is about two hours east of the BSU campus in Boise. The graduate program I am taking is facilitated at the community college campus here. Without this program, I would not be able to pursue my MSW degree in a live setting, which I feel far exceeds any online program for social science disciplines. The one con, I must say, is that the courses are instructed by adjunct professors and community professionals. While their information and work experience is highly valuable, the lack of teaching experience renders the quality of education a bit limited. Overall, I would certainly recommend this program to anyone interested in obtaining their BA or MA in Social Work.

Strong points - other people in our program, personal growth that occurred during program; Weak points - accessibility and communication, or lack there of, from faculty
