Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: The program is promising as long as you know what you want to do. Professors are quite helpful in attaining your professional and academic goals. It becomes more meaningful with new professors. Cons: The core courses that a PhD student supposed to take does not have a specific vision for any emphasis. These courses are not specific to subject areas. I am not pretty sure if the assessment or instructional techniques assure PhD candidates to have a solid knowledge in these domains so that they can be proficient to teach as a faculty in future. The program pushes students to focus on coursework, without tying them to the research practice or other professional needs. If you are not holding an assistantship, you would be on your own to pursue to develop your research expertise. You can end up with completing your coursework and 18 credits of dissertation with a PhD diploma. A PhD diploma should be more than a document representing how much credit you completed, but an indication of a scholarship.

Clemson University has one of the best graduate studies in IE, you can have access to all sources and great professors. TA and RA positions are limited and very competitive.

Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I have just taken one class during the summer and found it very good. The information provided during the lectures and the readings really helped increase my knowledge. I do find my courses very challenging and informative

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently enrolled in the evening MBA program. One of the key pros of this program is the accessibility of the program through the downtown Greenville, SC location. While the program has been challenging, I have grown personally and professionally from my experience thus far. The key con with the program, for me, has been the challenge of balancing work, school and life. As a father of three with a full time career, the amount of work required from the program outside of class has sometimes been challenging. I would also like to see more time for open discussion in class. I believe more facilitation of discussion among the students (most working professionals) would be a valuable addition to the lectures.

Great program! Great staff! Love the campus. Hard time finding scholarships for the program. Know students who have graduated and easily found a job afterwards.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2014

Overall, I have had a great experience so far at Clemson. Faculty members care about the students' overall success. The challenge I am having is affording to pay of credits, books and professional seminars as I am preparing on advancing my career.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Clemson University's MEd School Counseling program is an excellent program. It is one of the few programs that simultaneously provides its graduates with an EdS certification. This program also prepares its students for LPC certification--a definite convenience. The only con with this program is its location. Classes are split between two campuses which are anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes apart depending on the traffic. This is not a huge inconvenience however considering there is only one class a day. Overall, great school and great program!
