Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Drexel's MLIS is an ALA accredited program, which is required to work in the field. The online program is fast (2 years, part-time) and gives you the opportunity to do 2 quarters of practicum experience. The Philadelphia area has plenty of opportunities for practicums and later job placement.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The biggest issue I have with the program is that the school is in another state. I love the online program and just completed my BSN through Drexel as well.

I like the IHS program, although it is a bit too expensive since I am an out of state student

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

As a Working professional, I would highly recommend to consider a program that is geared for those professionals, Drexel does not!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2009

I truly enjoyed Drexel's online program! I feel like I learned so much during this experience - perhaps more than in other programs I've completed because of the requirements of this program. In particular, the discussion boards were extremely valuable in that we were expected to research our responses to back up what we were saying. This required spending a lot of time reviewing different material, reading, and applying knoweldge learned to real-world concepts.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The law school is up and coming in the area. It has a great experiential education program, and the faculty and staff are all wonderful. The school is still gaining its reputation in the area, but students are prepared for the workforce when they leave here.

Drexel University had excellent professors, as well as informed and experienced advisors who helped students select the right courses to keep them on track.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is very interested in your money and sells you a dream that they cannot fulfill.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

The MIHS program at Drexel was good but overall, slightly disorganized.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

My program and the coursework will prepare me for my future endeavors, however the facilities available are less to be desired; bathrooms are always missing toilet paper, paper towels, or soap, there is an inadequate library space for the number of programs and students around finals time, lecture halls and one library floor is uncomfortably cold while another library floor can be stuffy and hot. Though these may seem like trivial problems, compounded together they are frustrating to the students who spend around 8+ hours a day in the building. On a positive note, I am satisfied overall with the quality of education and the instructors.
