Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2018

My choice in a graduate school had to be an educated one. I chose Depaul because ever review that I read and every ranking that I saw had them with excellent scores/rankings. My short tenure here, has proven all of the "hype" to be absolutely correct. The teachers have been very knowledgeable and easy to work with. They use real world/on the job experience to foster the class work. I would recommend anyone serious about their education to give it a try!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

DePaul University, in conjunction with NorthShore University HealthSystem, offers an excellent and rigorous program in Nurse Anesthesia. The degree now offered is a Doctorate in Nursing Practice, ahead of the national requirements for programs to be doctorally prepared. The program is front loaded with didactic coursework, and some online courses can even be taking before matriculating after acceptance into the program, lightening your academic load the first year. This allows students to continue working part time as long as possible to assist with financial strain. The final 20 months (of 36 months total) are an anesthesia residency with clinical coursework preparing you to enter the workforce as a successful certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA).

I chose my college because I liked not only the reputation of the program but also the network that comes with attending school in a major city.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2011

Undergraduate studies are more than just about the grades and the "education" is not just about academia - it's about figuring out your place in the world and fostering relationships. By the time you get to graduate studies, and have presumably worked a few years, you can get a little more serious about the "studies" aspect.

Graduation Year: 2006

Great experience, great school and wonderful teachers while being in the fun city of Chicago
3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

DePaul University is a place where students are able to cater their education and job opportunities to whatever their career goals and life aspirations may be. Further, social ideologies and critical conversations will challenge anyone willing to tap into courses and programs that offer that rigor (honors, double majors, and more) which may even change plans one may have had going in. In addition, smaller class sizes cultivate a cozy environment that promotes an intimate relationship among peers and staff, encouraging only the best out of students who apply themselves and are not afraid to ask questions. With that said, between my many internships, classes, and volunteer opportunities provided by DePaul University, I have grown significantly from my education at DePaul and whole heartily recommend study for anyone interested in education in Chicago's diverse urban environment.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2017

I have been very happy with my courses and professors at DePaul University. While all of the classes have been combined graduate/undergraduate, I have been impressed with the rigor of the classes. The professors are very knowledgeable and show passion for what they are teaching. I have met fellow teachers/pre-teachers who have helped me in my career goals and have made strong connections that I know will last.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Marketing - MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I waited 20 years after my Bachelor's degree to pursue my Master's degree. I didn't know what to expect, but was hopeful it would not only help me achieve one of my dreams (earning an MBA), but would reinvigorate me intellectually. DePaul doesn't disappoint. They offer many classes online, or in a hybrid format. The classes are rigorous, but appropriate. The core classes are very challenging, but again, I expected that. Overall, it's a solid program that's challenging, but do-able in a part-time format (even with 2 kids).
3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2009

I went to school at the downtown Chicago Satellite campus, and I really enjoyed it. It was very convenient for me to go to school at night after I was done working. I made some good friends that are still friends today. The teachers were great, and the students were committed. I thought the degree was worth the price of tuition.

The professors encouraged success and with small class sizes we were able to get great discussions started.
