Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Clemson has afforded me the opportunity to grow holistically in my career within Higher Education. The faculty is committed to helping you succeed through the courses they offer or being accessible. Clemson is a small town with a family atmosphere, although I miss the city life it helps me to stay focused on my studies. Once I leave here I will definitely consider it a second home. Clemson is committed to growing it's campus and to the academic success of their students.

Graduation Year: 2016

I am only one semester into this program and am already overwhelmed with the amount of contradicting direction that is received from the professors. Our homework assignments change on a daily basis, future requirements are constantly being revised, email communication from the professors is confusing (it is like they are afraid to answer a question so they "jump around" without answering anything that you have asked) and the worst part is that one class has solely been group presentations on weekly reading material. We received zero instruction from the professor and have been teaching ourselves and our classmates the material; each time a question is asked, the professor asks one of the class members to answer it. It seems as though I am paying the school not to teach me. This is incredibly unfortunate as I completed my undergraduate degree from Clemson and was VERY satisfied with my professors and classes; it is a shame that this program has been so disorganized thus far.

Graduation Year: 2016

I love my graduate program because it gives you opportunities in different trade offs of the vehicle, i.e. Power trains, Vehicle Dynamics, System Integration, Vehicle Electronics and Manufacturing Processes. After a common semester in which they touch up every trade off, so that in later semesters you can choose what interests you the most. Well the only thing i hate about my program is that the campus for Automotive is far away from main campus. You miss upon the campus life that you come dreaming about from your home country.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros of graduate program are having an interactive experience with local business professionals who wish to further enhance their professional portfolios in the job market. Cons of the graduate program are that some of the classes especially the online ones are condensed in a short amount of time. Professors are obligated to finish in the time frame rather than the students actually grasping some of the course material. Summer courses feel rushed at times.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

Incredible program that is based in the heart of preservation country. Clemson University has teamed up with the College of Charleston to provide a graduate program like no other in the preservation field. Could not have asked for a better location to study at than in Charleston.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program are the in class theory to application. Another strength would be the practicum and internship experiences to really apply what is learned in the classroom. The cons would be that you could easily slide through the program if you do not make the personal choice to go the extra mile and make the experience your own.

I have recently applied into the graduate program at Clemson University so I cannot attest to the content of the program at this time.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

The program prepares students for life long learning and an active learning environment. Also, the support from the faculty and staff towards students in their academic, professional, and personal development is unparalleled. The only con with the program is the fact that the parking near the building is a little bit of a hassle. As long as you don't mind walking or paying to park every day it is fine.
