Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

I am at the Master of Public Service at School of Public Service at DePaul University. I really like the program and professors. The program give you enough academic knowledge to deal issues in the future. Also, the school offers a career mentor and career builder program, so if a students ask professors in the program are willing to help you. Professors of the program have many working experience in the field, so they can give you many examples. Most importantly, they can be your sources for your career. So I highly recommend the program for others.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Our program has many areas where it can improve greatly. Our writing program, in particular, needs to improve so that our students are practice-ready as soon as they graduate. That said, the advantages of being in Chicago's loop, with access to transportation, and being within a few blocks of most of the law firms and governmental agencies that our students are applying to is undeniable. Our career services office is strongly connected to our alumni and have been incredibly successful at networking students with prospective employers. Our academics push us hard, but the school makes certain that we have no shortage of social engagements to keep us involved.

DePaul is a wonderful institution. The cost is high, but I consider it an investment in my future. The professors are engaged and stimulating and the students share a healthy level competitiveness. The campus is very easy to access through all means of transportation. I really have no complaints.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The mental health counseling program at DePaul provides the necessary courses that prepare students to become licensed as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). Professors are very knowledgeable in specific counseling areas and the required textbooks are always engaging and informative. Advisors are approachable and helpful. Cons: There aren't many graduate organizations or a mental health organization at Depaul.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is fairly new, but it is well coordinated. I hope in the near future, as the program is recognized, more courses will be added. Currently, the courses are great but you do not have a wide variety to choose from. You do however, have options and are also allowed two outside electives which is fantastic. Overall, it is a great program and the professors are very helpful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the health field.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Private school is expensive and this program is full time and does not allow you to work while educating yourself (maybe part time with the right kind of job). Overall a great experience so far

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

DePaul University has a fantastic graduate program for counseling students. The faculty is knowledgeable, approachable, and fair. I have learned so much through this program and I believe that I will be properly prepared for my career when I graduate. My only concern is the tuition, as it is a private university and within Chicago city limits, which explains the high cost of living. There are not many scholarships available, but their financial aid department is very informative and helpful so I feel as though I can manage paying off my student loans after graduation. If you are considering becoming a counselor, I highly recommend DePaul University as a place for you to get a high quality education.
