Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

It is in the top ten programs of its kind in the country, and has a very good name recognition among such programs. It remains competitive within grant funding, and fosters a very collaborative learning environment, which can be very hard to come by these days. The cons are my specific program is split among two campuses, which limits some interactions among faculty and students outside of the classroom.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I like that my graduate program is small. I think the professors really care about their students and want to prepare us for our careers.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2009

The graduate program at ECU was very accessible. I was a full-time employee and was able to work on my degree full-time online while still able to work. The teacher's were great and were very helpful to non-traditional students.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2011

I thought ECU was great for receiving my Master's in Research Psychology. It prepared me for real-life scenarios where I am able to apply what I learned while in the program. I am also working within my field and will be transitioning to a PhD program this fall. I believe that a Master's program is an excellent option for students who are unsure if they want to pursue graduate school after undergrad and not just as an option to avoid the workforce. The surrounding town is not the best for those who become bored easily, but I was there to attend school not to party. After my experiences there, I can confidently say that I was fortunate to attend ECU. My professors provided challenging course work that was mentally stimulating and were also very supportive and helpful throughout my time there. Thus I feel that this program successfully served it's purpose.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, I think ECU is a decent school. I love the class I am currently taking and the professor is great. Some of the other professors who teach classes in my program assign way too much work and reading. Compared to other schools, the course offerings are limited.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2010

The professors in the M.A.Ed. program were helpful in regards to both courses and outside career advise. I would recommend this program to anyone that is interested in advancing their career in eduation.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014

I am in a small program so I have small class sizes. So far the material seems easy to me but I have been out of school for a while (since my undergrad) so that may change soon.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: -small program with a lot of interaction -affordable -wide range of biological disciplines Cons: -few students to connect with -below average undergraduate academics -bad location
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Excellent option for distant education. I am currently working on my Master's in Nursing. The staff have been very responsive to questions and helpful during my first distance/online class.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

It is the most difficult program I have every undertaken. I think some of the classes are built to weed out. There are 60 or more students in each class. I am learning a lot but the pace is so fast it is hard to retain what you learn.
