Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

I looked into many programs before choosing ETSU. The professors are always very approachable and are very concerned with your education. They truly want you to succeed and are happy to help assist in any way they can to ensure you are developing as a PT. This program has a lot of clinical education time incorporated into the program throughout the 3 years which is the number one reason I chose ETSU. Only con: The financial aid department at ETSU can be difficult to deal with though I have not had any serious problems.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel like my program is great because my professors understand how graduate students work a lot to gain experience. They are very understanding with how much we work, so they help us out on work.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Good cost of living and financial aid, surrounding area is beautiful with mountains and lakes - many hiking opportunities. Area lacks in active social scene and the downtown could be better, but there are still fun and interesting places.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Faculty were not always available or approachable. Many courses were not relevant or did not provide much usefulness in preparing for clinical rotations. Determining a schedule is also very difficult and often not determined until a few days before the semester begins.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The overall graduate school program here at ETSU is quite exceptional. However, there is always room for improvement. Many of the issues that I think the program has cannot be controlled by the department but more so the university as a whole. One of the issues is technology, after touring many campuses around the region looking for a PhD program, I quickly realized how outdated our technology is here at ETSU. This would take funding to change, but all students would more than welcome it. Another issue that I have seen is transportation. There is not enough, it is too small, and it is uncomfortable. This is, of course, another funding issue. I must brag and say that those two problems are the only ones I have had with the program. I have amazing leaders, my educational experience has been magnificent, and I love this area of Tennessee. I am looking forward to completing my Master’s degree here and moving forward to earn my PhD.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The M.Ed Educational Leadership program at ETSU is a wonderful program that is offered online. This really helps because I work 40 + hours a week as a financial aid counselor, and the online platform give me the opportunity to get my work done after hours. The program is very challenging, yet it provides great information and skills necessary for me to proceed in my educational career as an administrator. I would highly recommend the M.Ed Educational Leadership program to anybody interested in higher education administration.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

In this department we enjoy very small class sizes and the professors are very accessible. The students are well-funded, though there are a couple of school fees that are not covered. The professors are knowledgeable, active in their field, and well-connected. There is a healthy student-faculty social life. Students are encouraged to publish and to present at conferences. There are abundant resources available to both undergraduate and graduate students due in part to the active fossil site that is a twenty minute drive from campus. I couldn't ask for a better program.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the program that I'm enrolled in because it gives me the flexibility I need as a wife, mother and servant in the ministry. However, I believe the communication between the faculty and students could be a whole lot better.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The first pro of the online MPH Epidemiology program is definitely the flexibility to earn an MPH while completing other activities or taking care of other obligations. The ease of contact with the faculty and staff is also a pro. There aren't any significant cons that I can note just yet.
