Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I'll start with the pros. Brigham Young University campus is surrounded by majestic mountains, whose beauty is compounded in the winter with copious snow fall. I'm kind of a nature enthusiast so this was important to me. When it comes to professors, resources, and technologies BYU has some of the best. I personally worked towards a MS in neuroscience and had the privilege working with an MRI machine right on campus. BYU is one of the few universities without a medical school to have its own MRI facility. This fact was a huge pull in getting me to apply to BYU. Lastly and probably the best plus is BYU’s tuition prices. If you haven’t heard about them, look them up. You will not find a better education for a better price. I guarantee it! For grad school specifically, I was only paying $3,500 a semester which is a steal no matter where you go. Now, I will list some cons. There aren’t many. The only one I can think of is that the university is situated on a mountain so if you walk to campus you will have to hike up a hill each day. But I guess that’s why they call it a higher education, right?

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

BYU's information systems program has prepared me very well for my career and has made me a very competitive candidate for just about any job in my field. They have given me both a broad knowledge base as well as some very detailed knowledge in specific areas. This has enabled me to win international competitions and to impress managers and bosses in both past and current jobs and internships. The IS program at BYU is challenging and competitive and this allows the program to excel year in and year out.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

The professors are very concerned with one-on-one support for their students. They respond promptly to email correspondence and are willing to meet students individually as often as needed. Undergrads at the university have abundant opportunities to do their own research projects and grad students can teach introductory level classes. The atmosphere at the university is very well suited to education and personal development.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

My program offers great educational value. The things I have learned through this program have not just been applicable to accounting. I have learned skills of leadership, teamwork, and critical thinking among others. Because the program is nationally ranked, it offers great job outlook and career prep. The program is very competitive, which is hard for applicants, but it ensures that the very highest caliber students are able to collaborate in the program. Campus transportation is not optimal, and the surrounding area is very busy with students, but it is a beautiful area. The also program provides a good network and wonderful faculty.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

BYU provides a top notch education at a fraction of the cost due to the heavy subsidies from tithe-paying members of the school sponsor, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The opportunity to learn both secular and spiritual truths is unequaled and very refreshing.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

This grad program is very competitive. Only 15% of the people who apply are accepted. The pros are an excellent faculty. They prepare you to enter the field having completed a master's thesis. Getting a job with a BYU degree is almost guaranteed. A con of the program is that there is not a lot of financial aid offered.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

This program is great for graduate students who want establish a network by making connections with professors and others. People have been very friendly and open to help. If student diversity is an issue for you it's predominantly white mid-western people but they're great. Classes are hard but I learn a lot. I would suggest this place to anyone seeking a graduate degree!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros- You get to work closely with a professor for you 300 hour field work you complete during the Summer. Cons- Not as internationally focused as I'd hoped it would be.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

I think one of the biggest pros to BYU's speech language pathology graduate program is quality of professors and education provided. It is one of the last graduate programs that still require a thesis component, encouraging students to experience the ins and outs of research. Before entering the program, I would have laughed if someone suggested that I pursue a PhD. Now, after having completed my thesis in the first year of the program I can appreciate the contribution of ongoing research and would be happy to be a part of a PhD program down the road.
