Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2020

Eastern Michigan University is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I graduated from University of North Carolina in 2013 and received my bachelor's degree. I planned to take a year or two, at most, off to work in the field before dedicating more time and money to a master's program. I became pregnant and had to push those two years to about four years. Once I was enrolled in the program, I became increasingly nervous about the amount of time I had to take off between school and began to doubt myself and the quality of work I could give in a masters program. The professors at Eastern strive to help their students achieve like I have never experienced before. I have spoken to professors of many universities and often times I hear that the biggest downfall of being a professor is teaching because many of them are more dedicated to their studies and the research. Eastern professors love teaching and they love helping students find their way. I have benefited from many emails and meetings that professors have gone out of their way to have with me, ensuring that I am on the right track and fully understand the material in class. All of my doubts have subdued and I am more thankful than anything that Eastern chose me to be apart of their wonderful program.

I thought Eastern Michigan was a fantastic opportunity to be surrounded by diversity. The education was great, but the culture was even better.

I think college is extremely important for most (but not all) people. However, many families are being priced out of higher education. Loans are a crushing burden on so many.

The professors of Eastern Michigan's Clinical Behavioral Master's of Science program are top notch. They truly want students to learn as much as possible, and are always happy to provide additional support through meeting with students, giving additional readings, etc. The workload is tough, but none of it is "busy work" - everything directly applies to what we are learning and will eventually apply to our future careers. The student center is awesome, and much of campus is very beautiful, albeit slightly dated in some parts. While it may not be inherently safe, there are people whose job it is to walk students to their cars (for free), which definitely helps me feel at ease. I think the biggest downside to Eastern is the fact that the WiFi is very spotty, and certain classrooms don't have the best heating and cooling. However, I would recommend the program and school to anyone.

The advisors were helpful from the very first day I was accepted to the program. The program is much more affordable than any other program I have found. I love that it is online. This gives me a chance to gain experience in my field, while learning more about my future career at the same time.

It is a great school where the professors truly care about their students and their education. It is often overshadowed by a larger university in close proximity, but overall it delivers a great value and great experience.

A predominantly commuter school that spends far too much money on it's lackluster football program and not enough on it's academic programs.
