Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

If you would like to have a background in Public Health and Health Administration, a Masters in Health Sciences from Cleveland State University is perfect! You have a choice to earn your degree online, on campus or both! I had great professors and developed lasting friendships. If you communicate your needs/desires someone will come along and assist you in reaching your goal(s). Professionally, I feel completely prepared. I currently work for a committee health center in a management position. I may not always know the correct answer but I do know how to find it.
2.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013

The MAGI (Master's of Arts in Global Interactions) was a newly developed degree upon my election to pursue it. The degree offers the applicant to pursue a focus in either Politics or Business, with one incorporating some of the other in either case. I elected to pursue a Political focus. The courses are quite interesting and it was certainly a degree in which you will expand your knowledge of the intertwined relationship economics plays in international politics through government and NGO's alike. Unfortunately the degree does little in the way of career-building. Only during one of my interviews, post-graduation did they show any kind of excitement for the degree (a government agency.) I did however gain employment shortly after graduation, but in no way was this because of this degree, rather my work experience and Bachelor's degree. CSU aimed high with this innovative degree, however it lacks the 'meat' to hold much worth in the competitive job-search market.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is excellent. It was created with a very realistic career applicability. The faculty is excellent, however, since it is a young program there are still many small issues to work through. One of these issues include the changing of graduation requirements and specific courses.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Cleveland State graduate programs offer graduate students an excellent opportunity to gain advanced degrees in a well accredited school. They achieve this using incentives such as multi-term registration, course wait listing, grad express degree auditing, tuition band, and assertive academic advising just to name a few. However, there is room for improvement in areas of academic advising, and career support, where students could really benefit the most from their college experiences.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The program really offers hands on experiences needed to give a graduate student the upper hand once graduating and trying to find a job.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

CSU's Clinical Mental Health Counseling program really focuses on all the education needed to help students to become good counselors. The classes on campus are very hands on and most of the faculty is very helpful with making your graduate experience a great one. The class are only in the evenings and weekends.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that this program is giving me a rich academic experience and teaching me the foundations I will need to be successful as an adult educator. The faculty and advisors are friendly and very open and willing to help the students. One thing that I wish would change would be the outreach of the program to the students. More opportunities for the students to meet with program staff and faculty would be a great improvement to this already fantastic program.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

Cleveland State University has a great support system where the teachers work with the student and give plenty of time to help out in any possible way. One draw back of the university is the lack of in door parking, especially in the winter.
5.0 out of 5.0

Pros: All classes are scheduled so that it is easy to graduate in one year or two depending on the specific needs of the student.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
