-cannot comment on MBA program yet -MMUS program is quality, though it can be insular. -If in MUS program, make sure to make an effort to network in "other" fields in MUS- it does pay off.

BGSU has a fantastic reading education program, which many teachers in Ohio need to satisfy the third grade guarantee requirements. Students have real in-class preparation with a Title I teacher and literacy coach. Students are also offered tuition scholarships for the entirety!

BGSU is generally a good choice for graduate school and has several notable programs in the humanities, higher ed admin/student services, and hard sciences. you're moving to a small, rural town with not much to do...which is great for finishing your thesis or dissertation. Financial aid packages could be more competitive as you have to pay for your own health insurance as well as student fees (if you qualify, general tuition is waived plus you get a small stipend). Opportunities for professional development are available provided that you seek them out. You do need to be very proactive as a BGSU grad student (or at any University). BGSU doesn't have all the services of a large state university but you get a bit more attention as a result. I have no regrets about attending BGSU for grad school.

I am currently in an Online Cohort program and when I began the program I was worried I would have a lot of busy work; however, I feel that the work is very valuable and manageable. The professor has also been very helpful and easy to contact. The online program is easy to use, which was a concern I had as well. While I was looking into the program I was able to speak to faculty members personally and received responses from them immediately. The program is also cheaper than many graduate programs out there. I would highly recommend this program.

The program is great in terms of teaching and resources but the environment is not that great for students with different racial/ethnic background

This is a great program! The department actively tries to help us with our future and studies! With top names such as Wendy Manning, Susan Brown and Kara Joyner, this program is a very good value. However, the town that BGSU is in might not fit everyone.

Graduate students get to design their own thesis project, instead of coming into one that is already being done by a professor or PhD student.
