Georgia Southern has a quality graduate program. It is affordable and easily accessible. It is perfect for me as a full time teacher and mom. The faculty was supportive and communicated with me well.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I received my M.Ed. in Higher Education Administration from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA. The professors were very knowledgeable and kept class interesting! I was encouraged to practice what I learn daily so that it becomes habitual so that I was able to easily transition into my next steps in the field. The Program Coordinator makes sure students are aware of career opportunities by asking all students to join the listserv and then sending out weekly job descriptions. I could not have asked for a better advisor and better faculty than those who teach within the Higher Education Administration program. Their main priority is to help students succeed!

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The Master of Education in Special Education is a completely online program that I am able to participate in while living in Cobb County, working full time, and being a new mom. The course work is manageable and meaningful, the professors are very communicative and helpful, and the advising and financial aid offices are some of the best I have ever encountered. Overall, I am very please with my program so far.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgia Southern University has amazing professors who have real world experiences to offer students advice. The courses in my program are very comprehensive, and the professors focus on students actually understanding the thought process versus administering a grade. Plenty of opportunity to meet with your professors if you are not understanding a concept.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgia Southern University's health policy and management program can be considered one of the bests in US. I can say this because I've been a student of one of the "high ranking" universities and ended up taking a transfer. Moreover, the town in small and easy going. Less traffic and in close proximity of Savannah (45 min drive) and Atlanta (3.5 hrs drive). Public transportation is next to zero and university bus routes are fixed and rather small. University needs some more diversity and international students from several places.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

One of the biggest pros of the program is the friendly atmosphere amongst the students and faculty. Rather than an extremely competitive feel, in which everyone is just trying to out-do everyone else, it has a very welcoming feel to the program, in which everyone wants to support and be uplifting to everyone around them. One of the cons is the faculty from other programs seem more willing to help than our own program's faculty in terms of networking and help into getting in a doctorate level program.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

I am part of the Graduate Program for Electrical Engineering at Georgia Southern University, and it has given limitless opportunities for research with incredibly talented staff members. The professors here are definitely experts in their field, and they continue to work diligently in expanding their field of study with new avenues of of research and projects. Additionally, The city of Statesboro, GA is a beautiful place with lots of opportunities to relieve stress and have a relaxed evening. There is always an event sponsored by the city or university to attend as well as many clubs of differing interests to join.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program gives a formidable foundation on which your work experience can be built on. It prepares you for the job market, but at the expense of experience.
