Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of this program is the excellent graduate education that I am receiving and the well qualified and experienced professors that teach there. The con of course is the cost. It is a private university and it is quite expensive.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The biggest pros of Drexel's MLIS program include the quarter academic calendar, allowing students to finish their degrees quickly, and the knowledge and availability of program faculty. However, unfortunately even with the large number of online students in the program, Drexel does not make available much financial aid to online students.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is a great program, it challenges and motives me to be a great student and even better nurse. However, the cost is a little prohibitive.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Online program is excellent for working professionals. Faculty is responsive to questions. The classes are applicable to real-world. One con is the cost, especially for an online program.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I have only been here for a year but it has been a great experience so far. The classes have been challenging and very informative. I joined the MLAS program to further prepare myself for vet school and it is helping a lot.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: high quality of education, highly qualified instructors and advisors with a high level of responsiveness who give strong academic support, online tuition discounts, a degree that will also allow for certification in your particular area of concentration (early childhood, elementary and secondary education) Cons: cost of books and tuition, large workload with high academic expectations that can cause increased stress on adults already working full-time
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Drexel Law offers an excellent opportunity to start your legal career by learning outside of the classroom early. The student body is truly a community of like-minded learners, and competition is virtually a non-factor. The faculty, although young, are brilliant. The alumni base is minimal, but graduates are very willing to give back to as I have seen firsthand.
2.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros-The opportunity to get back into school and a chance to pursue healthcare from various angles with a better perspective on how to choose the proper career path. Cons-Lack of graduate school structure and support system from the top of the programs down. Can feel a bit isolated and question whether the directors of the program are concerned about the well-being of students moving forward.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a working professional pursuing a MS in Creativity and Innovation. I love the fact that I can study at my own pace from an accredited school that has been established since 1895. There are very few schools offering this program and it's online which allows me to travel for work and pursue my degree - it's perfect! The professors are always available and willing to assist me along the way. My classmates are truly diverse in culture, professional experience, and educational backgrounds. They push me and encourage me to grow and develop while providing support and thought provoking feedback. The cost is affordable so I can fund my own degree and still have a decent dinner and safe place to lay my head (unlike undergrad). I contemplated going back to school for a while and an online program was not an option because I'm a traditional learner, but I'm so glad I found Drexel!
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Drexel is a great school. Just like with any school is has its negatives, but all in all I'm getting a great education. The faculty is great explaining and answering all your questions, concerns. They are always there when you need them. Drexel is expensive, but the quality is excellent.
