Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Duke's psychology program is excellent. The faculty get along well (unlike some R1 schools where faculty members compete with one another and discourage collaboration) and are generally very accessible and supportive. Although the workload and demands are quite high, the environment is very collegial rather than competitive. One of the only cons about the psychology program is structural: labs are in different buildings, which makes it more difficult for students/labs to collaborate with one another, despite the fact that Duke supports interdisciplinary research.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Duke's Fuqua School of Business is well worth the time and money invested. It's diverse student body lends itself to a holistic learning environment beyond the fundamentals of management education. There are many opportunities to study overseas and to engage with professors on their academic research. Some of the drawbacks include a lackluster career management centers, the resources of which are stretched thin due to several competing academic programs. Additionally, the school's facilities, while new, are still cramped.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Really good program. Great networking opportunities. Lots of free events, seminars and talks students can go to. Professors are amazing. Very expensive. Need to make sure that you can afford it. The Career Services is not very organized with keeping records of alums, like where are they working now, how much were they earning etc.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Distance learning allows me to schedule my lessons at times convenient to me. Yes, I have a time frame to complete the assignments, but I like the freedom to study at times appropriate to me. Contact with the professors and staff is convenient also. Quick feedback on assignments and grades. At this time, I find not problems associated with the program.
