Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

This is my second year into my graduate program and so far all of my professors have been really supportive and helpful in making sure I succeed. I attended Cleveland State for my undergraduate degree and I enjoyed my experience then so I decided to return for my masters. While I am only able to take online classes the group discussions have been most helpful in giving me the full package of being a college student. I really appreciate all the help I have been given from all Cleveland State faculty.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the Creative Writing Program at Cleveland State University, is perfect for a graduate student to expand their writing skills. The cons is that it is very difficult to express yourself while following the professors protocol.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is a program any student would be lucky to be in!
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

The overall academic and education value for the Cleveland State Master's program in sociology are high, I only wish that there was more emphasis placed on qualitative data and stratification critique. Nevertheless, the environment of CSU itself is fantastic, while also providing an array opportunities for their students. I value my time here and believe I have grown in my abilities of theory, research methods, and general networking.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The global AMBA program at CSU is wonderful for students who already have a Bachelor's degree in business. It's a fast-paced, one year program that's engaging and valuable.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I love my School! The pros of my university are that my program is simply amazing. But finances are challenging for everyone I know.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I am enjoying my program. The major benefit of this program is easy accessibility. Only disadvantage is when you are studying in online program you have hard time reaching to your professor.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm lucky to be in a CARF Accredited Mental Health program. The faculty are amazing; helpful, available, and they really care. All of the professors I've had care passionately about the field of Counseling and strive to assist students in acquiring skills and personal strengths necessary for success in the field. My only real con is the lack of flexibility in scheduling. But as a graduate program, I'm pretty confident this is typical.
