Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

Pros are the fabulous professors. They really go in depth into the material and expect the students to come to class prepared. The biggest con is the location because of the lousy weather almost year round.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2010

I was able to buy a house in Provo on the graduate stipend. There was nothing to help me find a job. The key is to find a professor who is well connected and to choose a field that is hot. I would recommend BYU for a masters, but not a PhD in chemistry. You'll gain a lot of rich experiences in research with a much closer relationship to your advisor than you would elsewhere. Your experience will be enjoyable and the community is great. However, BYU does not command the prestige to make you competitive in the job market, especially academia. I did graduate in an economic downturn, and was still able to get a PostDoc job at the University of Colorado. I would seek a more prestigious degree if I had it to do over again.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I think the professors are very versed in the subjects they teach, many of which have experience in the field that they teach. They are also very willing to help and teach and spend more time helping students. One of the biggest cons is the overwhelming number of new students trying to enter the health program which has made it difficult to get into the classes I would like.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many great activities offered at BYU-I including a good sports program that allows students to compete competitively or for fun. The educational system is wonderful. I have felt that many classes have challenged me and have helped me gain a much better knowledge of my major. There has been an increase in the number of students that are attending the university which has made it more difficult to get into the classes that I need. It is also very difficult to find any kind of job.

I am in the youth and family recreation masters program. It is the top phd prep program in the recreation field. We have constant access to the professors, a great financial offer and I feel like I am getting a fabulous education.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

My experience with the Master of Public Health program has been very positive. The faculty are all very invested and want to help students learn. The program is structured so you can still work if you want, and many students do. I was a little wary about the conservative nature of the school, but I found quite moderate and liberal professors and students in the program. They are building a new building that will house the MPH program starting in 2014. The faculty will help guide students when it comes to their fieldwork and project, but it is up to the student to make a final decision- so you need to take initiative and decide what you want out of those experiences.

I loved my BYU MPA experience. I felt like the professors were such great mentors, they have great experience and have done great research, and they really care about the students as well. I had a great class as well, and learned so much in working with teams. Parking was difficult at times, I just had to make sure to come early.
