Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The political science department is one of a kind. It challenges you beyond a typical Masters program and holds you to the standards of a Ph.D. You leave outperforming doctoral candidates in political science by declaring four subfields in the discipline. The professor demand a critical eye from students in understanding politics from a variety of perspectives. The classes all work hand in hand in understanding politics and how it impacts different demographics.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2018

My graduate program is preparing me to be an independent person in career advancement. It is challenging for international students, like me, who do not qualify because of nationality to available grants and scholarships.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my program are my professors and the program itself. We are taught from the Afrocentric Prospective, which encourages us to to give back to not only our community but anyone who needs help. The cons of my school is the expenses, cost of attending ACU, and the lack of scholarships they do not give out to their students, unless you are from the middle east or an athletic. Overall I love my professors who have become my personal mentors and what I am learning not on educational level, but personal level as well.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the graduate program is that I am able to complete the program at my own pace. The con would be that I have class after my internship starting at 6pm and ending at 9pm.

Degree: Social Work

Clark is an amazing school, however it definitely costs a TON in order to attend a private university and receive such an amazing education. But all in all I love my panthers!
