Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

This program was a good program and helped me to be accepted into medical school for the fall. The program advisor is not very helpful but as long as you do well in the classes you will be successful in pursuit of a professional degree.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Drexel University is a leader in online education. They have developed online Nursing Graduate degrees that are far superior to other institutions. The professors are the same professors that teach the on campus students and the curriculum and expectations from the students are the same. Being an older graduate student I am very happy that I have finally found a program that can blend my work life and education seamlessly. Because of Drexel University and their commitment to online education my dream of a graduate degree can finally come true.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The Drexel University Public Health program is a great program that emphasizes a hands-on approach that allows students to utilize what they've learned in the classroom in a real-world setting. Based in Center City, Philadelphia, students have no trouble finding internship and practicum opportunities in a diverse and rich city like Philly. I am really glad I came to Drexel because as a future public health professional, I know that experiences working outside the classroom are crucial in developing my educational and career goals.

very convenient, friendly learning atmosphere; gain knowledge not only from professors but also from fellow classmates that have experience in the field already.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

This program is only a few years old, so there are still some kinks to get out. Overall this was a great 2 year graduate program. It allowed you to have the opportunity to take graduate level science courses, while also exploring the different opportunities in health care via career seminar classes. Every week a different healthcare professional that ranged from Pharmacist to Podiatrist would come in and talk about their profession. It was an opportunitity to get a look into other health care professions besides the typical MD or DO route. Since this was a Master's program, 2 research projects must be completed at the end of each year and presented to fellow students and faculty. Overall it was a great program that I enjoyed. Having the opportunity to take classes like Pharmacology, Histology, and Anatomy really lets you see what medical school classes are like. However, this program is just starting out so the kinks are there. It was a struggle just to get my research topic approved because my director had a difficulty in responding to emails. I hope her communication skills have gotten better. But thats the only con that I can really think of. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is willing to keep an open mind or is not really sure of what area of healthcare they want to pursue. This program will definitely help you figure that out.

Degree: Interior Design
Graduation Year: 2015

I am lucky that Drexel University recognizes veterans with their participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program. I consider the running up of my Post 9/11 GI Bill to be the only con to encounter in my college career. I would like to move forward and earn my Master's degree in Interior Architecture. I have the great advantage of a new building, new technology, and the support of the faculty.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2013

Earning a Master's degree at Drexel has been one of the most rewarding academic experiences I have ever had. I have been blessed to be taught by industry leaders and pioneers in the field of Couple, Marriage and Family Therapy. From day one, I have been a human being and not a social security number. My Deans, Professors, and Advisers know me by name and consistently express interest and concern in my professional development as well as my personal, professional and academic needs. Earning a degree at Drexel University in my opinion is making me extremely competitive and significantly more marketable then individuals from other institutions of higher learning. The assistance I have received in preparation for my doctoral study has far surpassed my expectations also! I truly feel I am in great hands and being set up for an extraordinary career in the field of therapy and academia.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I think that because the class size is less than 300, we are really like a small family at DUCOM. The two curricula, IFM and PIL, are great because you really get an individualized education. The professors and administration are quite open to change. In terms of cons, I would say that it is quite expensive and loans do not cover the entire tuition. I also wish the surrounding area was nicer. I feel like I always have to be aware of my surrounding and make sure I don't leave anything visible in my car to cause someone to break in.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

Drexel Public Health is an up and coming graduate program. The best part is that it is trying to be on the edge of technology and work. The worst part is that in its expansion, sometimes it loses some of the more intimate settings. When expanding your student body by almost twofold in five years, there is a lot to take in, in terms of not missing the buck. Drexel tries its best and mostly manages. There are slip ups here and there, but it does very well. The biggest negative is that financial aid is awful.
