ETSU is an excellent school. The teachers are excellent. They offer a wide variety of classes and programs online. They have great financial options/financial aid, especially if you are disabled (tuition seriously discounted if you are receiving SSI or SSDI). Their department for students with disabilities could use some work, though (they don't coordinate much - it's up to you to do pretty much everything).

Degree: Accounting

Nice smaller campus. Great business college that is acredited and does not cost as much as other schools
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2019

The communication - storytelling program combines the rigor of a well developed and focused communication curriculum with advanced studies of storytelling as both a craft and a profession. Courses in communication theory, ethics and an examination of ethnography help to integrate the concepts of post modern communication for all students. Studies of storytelling history, performance traditions, and applied storytelling provide a solid foundation for ongoing immersions in performance development and practice. Opportunity to learn from and engage with Storytellers of National and International reputation is created through various institutes and adjunct courses. The program has strong ties with the International Storytelling Center which is only minutes away. Students are provided the opportunity to both attend and support the National Storytelling Festival each October.

I would pick courses that will guarantee a job after graduation. Colleges will encourage you to take classes and earn degrees that will leave you broke with no job. Be sure to choose your college path wisely.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I absolutely love my program! Pros: - Caring and experienced faculty - Wonderful cohort - Plenty of experience opportunity (the program puts a lot of emphasis on practice as opposed to research) - A good selection of concentrations within the program (school counseling, college counseling, clinical mental health, and family/marriage counseling) -Access to tuition waivers/stipends Cons: - There is some animosity among some of the faculty - There is little research opportunity if you are interested in that Overall, I couldn't have chosen a better program for me.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

ETSU offers a great MAT program. What I love is the support that is given to non-traditional students. As a mother, deciding to attend graduate school was a scary thought. The staff has been extremely supportive in helping me achieve my goals while still being a mother to my young baby. My program has helped me gain the skills I need to become an educator. I feel very prepared to enter the world of teaching. If I could change anything about the program, it would be to offer more off-site class options since I drive a long distance to reach campus.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

A con of this graduate program is limited GA or TA positions for the amount of graduates excepted. Obviously they cannot fund everyone but this is a con for me. A pro would be any professor is willing to help you in and out of class. All the professors have a great attitude toward the students. I would recommend this department program of study to others. This department is all about success.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

I love the environment here at Tennessee State University. I love that you can get help from an faculty member in the department. I consider my colleagues and professors as second family. I like how everyone goal is to make sure you understand. Its a friendly environment and I feel there aren't any negative things I can say about TSU.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

It is a small program, however the faculty are not always approachable or conciliatory.
