Student & Graduate Reviews

4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I am currently at graduate student at Eastern Michigan University's clinical mental health program. I have my undergraduate degree in social and I have decided to return to school because I would like to pursue my career in the mental health field. The pros of my program include the fact that EMU has a excellent counseling center on campus where my internship can be completed and a wonderful staff with a vast array of knowledge and experiences. One of the cons of this specific program includes the fact that I am currently in class with a lot of teachers. In some of my classes I am the only social worker which makes me feel out of place at times and has had me consider possibly changing to the MSW program. Overall I think EMU is a wonderful school and the program is exceptional.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is very intense, but at the same time prepares me for the future. Cons of this program is that there is no 3 year program versus 2 years, so some like myself, A father could possible work part time while in school. The pros are that it is very close to home, most affordable compared to other surrounding Physician Assistant programs within the area.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

Some parts of the program are better than others. There are several excellent professors who are wonderful teachers and mentors. Many Eastern graduates stay in the area to work which makes the Michigan network fairly large. Overall, the program is generally good.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program has prepared students in the past years for their board exams and have very high pass rates. The program also has experienced and supportive staff that want to help you succeed. My program also has a student occupational therapy association that is very involved with the community. We are one of the few programs to have a boardroom to classroom event where board members of the national association can interact with students. An on campus conference is also held for the occupational therapy students in the fall so that students can hear from individuals who are active in the profession. The negatives to my program are that we share facilities with other programs and sometimes the classroom availability is limited. The city that my university is located in is not exactly the safest place and so I do not like to be on campus when it is dark.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The MAT program is highly regarded by educators and educational systems. EMU has top quality professors, and a rigorous, challenging curriculum. I will be well prepared for my profession, upon completion of the EMU MAT program.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2016

The English Language and Literature department at Eastern Michigan University has a brilliant and supportive faculty. They are easily accessible and committed to helping their students develop as scholars. The university itself isn't the most competitive or reputable; however, the English graduate department compensates for the universities shortcomings. I'm very pleased with my choice to pursue a master's degree here and would recommend that others consider it.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

Too many PowerPoint slideshows disguised as classes. Some classes are quite difficult to complete if working full time. Computer lab hours make it even more difficult to complete class projects that require the use of EMU-owned computers.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

It was a great program, that made me feel more prepared than many other professionals just graduating in this field or a similar field.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The M.B.A. program at Eastern Michigan University is great for working professionals. The course schedules and work loads are great for busy, career minded students. The professors always try to incorporate actual student work experiences in with the lectures and assignments. The faculty is also very understanding when "life" gets in the way of education. On the other hand, EMU's program is not the best fit for someone who is a full time student. The career center is ok, but those who are already employed have a distinct advantage in the program. Overall, its a good school and program for the money.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

EMU has an experienced and professional faculty. All of the professors that I have worked with are at the top of their field. Each person is passionate about health care and wants to see his or her students succede. The safety of the student body is an issue. despite some of the prgrams in place to protect students, a large number of crimes are comitted on and around campus. Two students were murdered and a majority were beaten and mugged.
