Working through the Pathway program made going to college all the more accessible and affordable for me.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2018

I feel this program at Brigham Young University is great. The professors are not there to just teach, they actually care about you and want you as a student to succeed. The class room environment is one of success and happiness. When you attend your classes you actually want to be there. However, if I could change one thing it would be the organization of the program. It is extremely difficult to know what classes you need and the steps you need to take in order to graduate.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2016

BYU has an excellent TESOL program. It is well worth the cost and provides excellent training. There is not a very diverse student body population.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm pursuing a masters in Archaeology at BYU and I love how vast the campus is outside of my program because it means that I have access to many different resources and professors who can help me in addition to the professors in the program. There are many extracurricular activities with respect to archaeological work, and there are many research positions available on-campus for archaeology master students. The BYU library is a great resource for background research, and there are many museums close by. I do wish there were more classes offered. Often there is only 1-2 classes offered a semester that you can take. I also wish the university as a whole supported our program more. I could also say that it'd be nice if there were more scholarships available, but frankly tuition is really cheap and so I can't complain much about that.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

BYU offers a strong well known program that pushes you and helps you obtain your goal. It is also a program that is affordable and works well for a working professional. It offers strong networking opportunities. They don't sell you as hard as other programs. You do work for and earn your degree from BYU.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2020

I feel that some of the pros of my graduate program is that it puts me in an environment that I'm surrounded by people of my same faith in God. along with teachers who have had a lot of experience in the fields of engineering to help me understand and apply the things I'm learning in the class room. The cons to my graduate program is that it is very labor intensive to be able to get the degree. I really had to cut down on my social life to be able to take the school load along with working part time to be able to do the things that I love.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program provided great financial aid and a quality learning environment. We took part in tangible, partnered research projects with community members and faculty. We had opportunities to get involved in teaching, research, professional organizations, and conferences. My particular program was small and I had to piece together my own course schedule from other programs, however, I saw this as an advantage. The local community has a lot of live music and a pretty good social scene. If you love the outdoors the university is particularly well positioned for access to outdoor activities.
