Student & Graduate Reviews

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

This is one of the top music schools in Chicago. Especially the jazz studies program. The teachers are excellent and so is the student talent. The only thing that kind of stinks for the grad program is there is only one section for the courses I need per quarter so if you can't come at the time you're kind of screwed, but this has never been a problem for me. Where there's a will there's a way.
1.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013

The program is not that competitive and can easily be completed within a year while working. The school accepts too many students fresh from their undergrad with no real world experience and nothing to offer during discussions.
2.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

DePaul's mission statement outlines three pillars: urban, Vincentian, and Catholic. These pillars come together to instill a sense of social responsibility in DePaul students. As such, DePaul's graduate programs in the College of Education emphasize helping those in urban and under-resourced settings. This means conducting field experience in the Chicago Public Schools system and classes that revolve around current issues in education (e.g., reform, the Common Core, etc.). DePaul provides a rich and applicable education that prepares future teachers to deal with the many inevitable issues that they will have to grapple with. Furthermore, the support system at DePaul is a tight-knit community. These aspects of the DePaul graduate programs are extremely beneficial and worthwhile, providing justification for the cost. Overall, the graduate programs at DePaul are valuable and rich with resources. So far, I am happy with my choice and I advocate DePaul to others when given the chance.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Very diverse, helpful faculty, great program/university with a great reputation Cons: Faculty aren't always very timely with responses.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Great campus and location in Lincoln Park and downtown area. Great faculty and student interaction if you plan on pursuing a career in the Chicago area. Cons: Too traditional in the program structure. As an undergraduate business major, I felt several of the general MBA courses were remedial at times. Would have liked the option for more specific coursework within the required credits.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I am excited that I should be able to complete my entire program online. This is a great help because I am working and it is difficult to get to class at specific times.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

DePaul's Master's Entry to Nursing Practice Program is a 2-year program that prepares nurses well for future careers. However, there is still a bit of disorganization in the program and that is a little frustrating. There are great teachers in this program.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The school is very generous as far as financial aid and support. The facilities are a little out dated but overall the school is very nice and well kept.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Professor communication has been spotty. Financial aid didn't seem to try very hard.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

DePaul is located a great surrounding but it gets very cold. The school is awesome all around!
