Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The cons of my program are that the school is still relatively young and needs more development. In addition, my program needs more resources. The pros are my program allows me a chance to work with public health professionals and gain research experience.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

The MPA program offers small classes with professors who are highly knowlegable in their area of study. They are willing to help, but also let you figure things out on your own. Coming to class is a must if you want to do well.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

The MPH program at the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern University provides its students with quality instruction in all of the core areas of Public Health. Upon completion of the program, students are equipped with an advanced knowledge of Public Health and the Health Sciences, and continue to receive guidance from faculty and staff members throughout the course of their academic and professional careers. The JPHCOPH is definitely a great choice for any individual desiring to study the health sciences.

Degree: Public Health

This school is great for students who are looking for high interaction with the professors. The downside is the area around it, there isn't much to do.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of the MASS program with a concentration in Criminology at Georgia Southern University are small class sizes, very educated professor in the field of criminology, beautiful campus, diverse ways of teaching techniques, and most importantly the ability to form relationships with the students in the program. The cons of the MASS program with a concentration in Criminology at Georgia Southern University are it is a new program – therefore the lack of information about the program is a bit difficult to find online along with the fact that the advisors are not completely knowledgeable on the need curriculum for this program.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Having just started the program, I am just now getting a feel for how it will work. I can already tell there will be a variety of personalities among the professors and how they decide to utilize the online format. They are all timely and responsive with their information. I am not on campus, so I cannot speak to campus life and quality. However, all of the online technology seems to be working fine and is conducive to online learning. The program does seem to be a great value compared to the cost of other comparable programs.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2013

I would prefer face-to-face classes where ideas are tossed out, torn apart and reassembled. But, for someone motivated to get a degree it works. While one could make of the program what they wished by working hard or working at a lesser level, I chose to make of it what I needed and I must credit myself for much of what I will be exiting with.
