The program is rich in diversity however the college of education caters to teachers and not to those who would like careers in other areas of education.

DePaul College of Law has a great sense of community among the students and faculty. There is a lot of support you receive as a student!

The School of Public Service has a knowledgeable, accommodating team of advisers and faculty members. I feel continuously supported throughout the year. I also enjoy the small class sizes that enable effective classroom discussions and long-lasting relationship with peers and faculty.

I found it very easy to immerse myself in the diversity of educational programs available in DePaul University. The Academic Support workshops helped me learn techniques to study and take exams in the current environment. This was invaluable for a student who last sat in a college hall in 1987. In fact, I was so happy with DePaul, that I have applied and received acceptance to return for a 2 year JD program to enable me take the Illinois bar.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2016

I think a few of the best pros for me is that the teachers are professionals in the industry and bring in guests speakers who are also currently professionals which allow us as grad students opportunities to network while in the program. For me location is also important as I do not have a car. Having a downtown location and evening hour classes help as I also work full time and am unable to take classes during the day. So far, I have enjoyed my program, although it has been a little difficult working full time and being a full time student.

Degree: Cognitive Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

DePaul is a great school due to the major that is offering. My major is not taught in many schools in the U.S. I study Human-Computer Interaction, and DePaul has professional professors that teach this major. The only cons of this school is financial aid for international students. I love my major and school and really like to finish my studies in DePaul but I have some financial problems and haven't been able to get any help from school.

It's a strong university in my major. My major is Human-Computer interaction in college of Computing and Digital media. The professors are so professional and their lectures are of a high quality. The only cons is the lack of financial aids and scholarships which I really need to continue my studies.

I love that I can take it all online. The lectures are recorded so I can do it on my own time and even rewind if I miss something.

Tons of adjunct professors still in practicing their craft in the real world and a high quality of classes available for selection make DePaul a great choice for prospective journalists seeking grad school.

Overall, I have enjoyed my time here at DePaul. In terms of education quality, I feel I have received an excellent education in my field of study. Many quarters, I found myself wanting to take extra classes due to what was offered. In terms of cost, I have had to keep in mind that DePaul is a private institution, which causes tuition costs to be a bit higher. It's scary thinking about the lurking debt. If I could do it all over again, would I still choose DePaul? I'm not sure. I appreciated many of the courses I've taken, but never felt a sense of community. Granted this is a grad program, and perhaps that can account for the feeling. Many professors are helpful and willing to meet to discuss ideas, papers, etc. however, it is difficult to justify the cost now that I've been through the program.
