Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

DePaul is a great school with an amazing network. They work hard to make sure you're taken care of, as long as you put in the effort so do they.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

DePaul Law has great networking opportunities in the city. It is also easy to get to, located in beautiful downtown Chicago. And, with their new third year program are trying to expand their practice opportunities before graduation.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2019

DePaul has outstanding faculty that make every effort to be available to us as a resource. It would be nice if classes were available over the summer session.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2014

The Media/Cinema Studies program has expanded my knowledge and expertise in the field of academia. I feel more competent in my comprehension of theory, writing, and public speaking. However, because there are limitations to the courses that are available, it is difficult to strengthen your focus area if it does not fit into what is offered. I highly recommend including Independent Studies into the program for any prospective students interested in honing in on a specific focus area.

DePaul law is a great school. I enjoy my classes; the professors are friendly and helpful. It just cost way to much. There are very few options when it comes for paying for the education.
