Degree: Real Estate Management
Graduation Year: 2017

I am a Master of Real Estate Development student at Clemson University and cannot say enough about my program. Both the depth and breadth of the program are incredible and the true development focus separates it from its purely finance-based competition. The network is world-class as well and there is a dedicated advancement board made up of the best of the best in the industry to help students find internships and jobs. If I have one complaint, it is that while tuition is relatively inexpensive, there is little in assistantship help and the school's cost of living calculation is too low for everything a graduate student needs.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

As a first year Masters' student, I find that the transition from undergraduate to graduate studies has been arduous. The amount of work required at this level is significantly more intense. However, I feel that because of this intensity, I have been able to find out more about myself personally and professionally. My programs consists of bright and inviting individuals; I know that they are excited about knowledge and are willing to assist in any way possible. While works may be difficult, the benefits far outweigh the costs.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

There are not many people in my program, so we are able to receive one on one help from professors and not have to worry about getting lost in the crowd. Every student has unique ideas which really makes for an interesting group. The professors are really knowledgeable and passionate about their fields and will go the extra mile to ensure we understand the content. There are also many opportunities on campus for diverse groups of people.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

As part of the Master's program in Economics at Clemson University, I was initially surprised to find how most of my courses were in undergraduate classes, but just with an added master's component to the course. Any courses that do not include undergraduates, are filled with PhD students. To me, it seems as though there is really not a tailored master's degree program. However, despite that, the professors have been enormously helpful and are always willing to talk with you about any concerns you may have.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently pursuing a Masters of Public Administration at Clemson University. My program is entirely online through Adobe Connect. This allows you to still have a classroom feel with the convenience of still being employed. The program is awesome!

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

Committed Faculty who are very much interested in the students' career development. Use of high technology packages like data sharing and transfer packages to enhance learning and innovation. However, student financial support most times does not meet the levels for a very conducive learning environment

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program that I am currently in is completely online. Clemson gives you the opportunity to obtain your MPA from the comfort of your home. You do not have to relocate in order to receive your degree. You can continue to work while juggling class. The MPA program also offers a weekend for MPA students to come together and network. Also, if you are within the commuting area of campus, you are still offered the same opportunities as any other on campus student. The program is formatted very well and it is not like other online programs. Clemson uses Adobe Connect which allows you to have classroom interaction. Each student uses their web cam as well as their microphones to communicate during class. I wouldn't have chosen any other program.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The historic preservation is a great program with great professors. The professors are the best in their fields. The con is the price of the program and living in Charleston is expensive.
