Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2018

Butler University is a great place to be... when you stay on campus. If you go anywhere south of campus, you might find yourself concerned for your safety. However, the campus is lovely and everything is in great condition. The tuition is quite expensive, but the professors, other faculty, and the valuable internships your participate in make Butler's pharmacy program more valuable than any other pharmacy program nearby.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm currently pursuing my Creative Writing degree in Fiction. The program itself is not very financially supported by the college, so there is very little financial aid; however, the tuition itself is reasonable. Your second year will be more affordable as you will have access to working opportunities. The professors are wonderful, driven, and talented. The relatively small size of the program makes for an intimate space and lively conversations that help make you into a much better writer.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Butler University's Physician Assistant Program is a top-notch graduate program with an outstanding level of faculty support. The faculty are what make this program superior to others in the state of Indiana by putting in so much enthusiasm, time, and energy into helping their students succeed and be the best healthcare practitioners as possible. The school and program are expensive; however, the major and career choice will help pay off the school expenses in just a few short years. I would recommend this program and this career choice to anyone interested in a healthcare field.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

Butler University is great because the internship and career services office is very successful at helping students get jobs before they even complete their degrees. The prestige of the university is also appealing to employers. The cost of tuition is relatively low compared to similar graduate programs. The only con I have found is that some advisors are not very good at helping you schedule the appropriate courses.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Butler realizes that students in the part-time MBA program have lives outside of class, and are extremely flexible when planning around that. The professors are very good at both explaining the book material and relating it to the real world, both past and present. While the network isn't exactly what you would get at Harvard Business School, you also won't have to pay $150,000 for your degree.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

The physician assistant (PA) program at BU is difficult and demanding, but in the long run you are going to be responsible for the health and safety of patients. The program gets you ready for what it takes to become an excellent PA
