Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

As a psychology major, you must go in with the knowledge that a bachelors degree is not preparing you for a job, but a career. You must be prepared to attend graduate school. The Georgia Southern University Psychology program is great for that, if you want it to be. I know many people who feel unprepared for graduation and are worried about their future. However, I know many people, including myself, that are fully prepared to graduate. Georgia Southern will not hold your hand and guide you step by step through how to train yourself for graduate school, but there will be plenty of opportunities. The psychology professors are more than happy to get to know you, they love when you ask questions, and will help you when you ask. They get excited when you ask to help them with their lab work or even do a study with them. Personally, I can vouch that every psychology professor here wants to see you succeed. I had the advantage of sitting down with my professor of choice for my masters. We got to discuss my future plans for research, and I could not feel more ready to start out in graduate school. In sum, if you are the kind of person that is ready to take advantage of the opportunities available to you, then the Psychology program and Georgia Southern is right for you.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

This college is very exclusive and off putting to some graduate students. If you came from another state school for your undergrad, students at GSU don't care and will harass you if you cheer for your old alma mata!

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Anthropology department faculty are amazing. They are always willing to help you with your goals, whether it's passing their class or figuring out a a future career. Georgia Southern is a big school, but has a small school feel to it. Once you are in your program, the class sizes are small and the professors know you by name.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is what you make it. There are some very helpful professors who understand the need to be able to apply the concepts learned in the program, so they give you opportunities to practice the IRB process, research and analysis, lab research, and study abroad. However, you have to be proactive to get the most out of this program. Do more than just the classwork, get to know the professors, make connections for research and interests. The professors who understand that this is a training program and not just a checklist to get a degree truly want you to succeed, to reach your potential, and to do more than you believe you can do yet. Challenge yourself and you will be very happy with the personalized education you can receive here. The campus culture is fantastic and the COPH is very colleagial and tight-knit, so it is ideal for someone moving from far off, as you quickly make friends and colleagues for life.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall, it was an amazing experience. The entire public health college truly cares about each student. The professors would meet with each student on a regular basis to help the student figure out what specific area they are most interested in. I felt extremely prepared and confident during my internship.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2018

The main pro for me is the fact that the program is entirely online. Being a full-time student and employee, it is hard for me to find time to attend classes. So far, I have not experienced and cons with the program.
