Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

As a older student I was apprehensive about returning to school by the online method. However Drexel made the program very easy to work with, even for a technologically impaired person like myself. My only con is being from an older generation, I miss the one on one aspect that you rarely get in an online program. Otherwise I have no cons regarding my program.

Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The MLAS program has been a great experience so far. I really feel that the two year program will fully enhance the areas of my education that needed improvement before going to vet school.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: The faculty are extremely involved in our success. We also have Standardized Patient Labs to get us used to the clinical process. Cons: We work on the quarter system, so it is very fast paced.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Faculty Members are very approachable and excited to collaborate. Drexel conducts a wide range of research with many strong areas which allow for great potential in research and networking. Graduate Advising is Excellent and the Office of Graduate Studies does an amazing job keeping students engaged and active both in research and socially. Cons: Drexel should spend more money attracting more world famous faculty members.

3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that the quality of education provided by Drexel is very good. The professors are all actively practicing and knowledgeable. However, there is a huge lack of communication between the school and the students
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I've recently started the MS in Arts Administration program at Drexel and have been finding it fun and challenging. A big strength is the network of peers and alumni. Philadelphia is a great city to be learning arts administration because it's a cultural destination on the rise. There are a lot of art museums, galleries, and organizations, and the artist community is very supportive. Safety can be an issue depending on where you are, but on campus security is there for the students. Drexel is a private institution, and it is expensive. My program offers three competitive fellowships, and that's it. I'm outweighing the costs with the good post-graduate employment statistics, and students often find work while in school. All classes are at night to accommodate work schedules. The students' levels of experience vary. For instance, my experience is from artist-run galleries that are very small and often disorganized, and there are students currently working in the field and are more or less obtaining a Masters in order to receive promotions. For someone new to professional arts administration, this program is very informative and challenging.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that I have received a quality education from Drexel. The classes were challenging and the professors were supportive and very present. This is critical to the success of the online learner.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The College of Nursing and Health Professionals at Drexel University has a lot to offer. At Drexel they provide a lot of quality amenities and service. But it is no secret the the school is VERY expensive and does not generally offer a lot of financial aid. When they do offer aid however, although generous, it is still usually not enough to cover all expenses, let alone tuition.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Some things are not applicable to me as I am entering as an online student and will not be on campus, however I am basing them off of the opinions and experiences of friends and acquaintances who have attended on campus classes
