The ability to complete a degree entirely online has allowed me to pursue a further degree while working full time. The professors have been very helpful and responsive when contacted. The grading process has been consistent and fair. I'm very happy.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Eastern Kentucky University is a great school and the science program is highly ranked in the nation. The campus of EKU is very diverse and it's a beautiful campus that is growing to accommodate all students. I highly recommend EKU, not ony for science, but the other great educational programs, such as Social Work; Criminal Justice, Nursing, etc.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros The classes are held on alternate weeks in the evening. For those who work full time or have family matters this allows for classes fit around busy schedules. All the professors are reachable, they genuinely care about the students, and want you to become the most effective and efficient counselor. Cons currently the program is evaluating their program and making changes. The changes are for the better but for students like me who are currently in the program the changes can be confusing.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Personal attention of faculty and staff. Willingness to assist students.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

EKU has been challenging, but manageable. School tends to be overwhelming and this is no exception, but I have found it to be a rewarding experience.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

The Biological Sciences Masters program at Eastern Kentucky University is an excellent fit for students who enjoy a vigorous; but, not too exhaustive coursework load. In this program I am able to excel because of the awesome group of professors. I recommend this Masters program. There are TONS of fellowships available.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

Though EKU has many positives within their program, such as great staff and a very occupation-based and evidence-based practice, I feel as though some people slip through the cracks and can get in though they are not truly able to keep up. Overall, I am very proud to have attended this program and school for so many years and would recommend it to others.
