Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

The MSW New Bern Cohort has been an excellent experience and educational opportunity for me. I was able to work full time which is needed for my family to survive and obtain my graduate degree from a great university through a part-time Saturday program. This is the only opportunity I had to attend an accredited university and get a quality education all while living in a town that doesn't even have a university.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2021

Nestled in the heart of eastern North Carolina, East Carolina University is none other than a hidden gem of a graduate school opportunity. As a PhD student enrolled in the IDPBS program in the Biology department, I have gained training in modern techniques at the forefront of evolutionary biology, allowing my research to remain relevant and helpful to the scientific community. I believe that this is an important component of any graduate program but cannot be found at all institutions. Staying current in a given field of research is perhaps the most critical component of a graduate program for securing a job following graduation, yet it is difficult for departments to change with fast-paced advances over time. The Biology department at East Carolina excels at this task. One key component of the IDPBS graduate program at East Carolina University is its emphasis on learning to program computer code for biological purposes. In the past ten years, major advances in genetic sequencing techniques have allowed for the acquisition of huge amounts of data, leading to advanced computer-based techniques for managing and analyzing such quantities. The IDPBS coursework offers instruction on such techniques by analyzing real datasets analogous to a students own projects. These skills can be utilized to obtain biology-based industry jobs, or postdoctoral positions within academia. I highly recommend the East Carolina University graduate program for students interested in all areas of biology, from molecular and cell biology to evolution and ecology. Sometimes the application of techniques can be difficult to grasp, and manageably-sized laboratories offer time to meet 1:1 with advisors to ask questions and get feedback as students develop their theses. A reasonable and fair amount of coursework to the student allows for time to progress research goals in the thesis. These important variables make East Carolina University an excellent choice for the study of biology.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

East Carolina University has the best learning atmosphere! Their professors truly care about the student and career path and are very knowledgeable in their fields of study. They are hands-on and willing to be of assistance at a moment's notice. I've had the pleasure of being in and around the university the past five years and the skills and knowledge I have obtained cannot be compared!
