Student & Graduate Reviews

2.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Sports Medicine
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program was designed to be an advanced degree to build upon the fundamentals a student had from their previous undergraduate institution. I received a bachelor degree in Sports Medicine from a respectable institution . However I found that my undergraduate program prepared me for an extra level position better than my graduate program did. Upon completion of my graduate degree I found myself no more intellectually advanced then when I first started the program. After all had been said and done I have a masters degree that did not further me in any means whether financially, intellectually, or in an occupational manner.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University has offered me a challenging and thorough program in Public Administration. I am half-way through the program and have been the most impressed with the community connections the school has offered. I routinely have the opportunity to attend panels, lunches, meet & greets, and mixers with high level professionals working in the field of local government and nonprofits. The professors are challenging yet supportive and very flexible. The facilities have offered everything I've needed, and my program has been centrally located on campus, convenient to offices and student services. I'm very pleased with my experience at GSU.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 1999

The community psychology program at Georgia State University is excellent. This approach to addressing environmental context instead of one individual at a time to make sure communities are health as a whole person makes for a better use of resources and stronger communities and environments. It is similar to the public health approach to health. This program is rigorous and research based but also has a number of courses on practical applied, implementation based approaches. This degree helped prepare me for a career in population based public health programs and evaluation to improve programs and provide information for decision making and program improvement.

Number one business school in the south and a top churner of talent into Atlanta's economy.

Georgia State University is incredible. You will meet great people who will become life-long friends. Georgia State was the reason why I got a great job right out of graduate school.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Georgia State University has a great Early Childhood Education program. One of the main reasons I like it is because you earn an endorsement while you are getting your Masters. I chose to get my mathematics and support/coaching endorsement. I have already seen a difference in my ability to teach children. Last school year when I was enrolled in the math classes all of my students improved their end of the year Iowa scores. I was so happy that my investment was paying off so fast!
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The College of Education at Georgia State University is a great school. I went there both undergraduate and graduate. The faculty is helpful and personable. Most of them are doctors, but you never feel like you are beneath them . They promote hands on, cooperative learning which allows you to network with other educators in your area. I have learned a lot not only from my professors but from my classmates as well. The curriculum was relevant and useful in my career. It has provided me with the skill set needed to be a confident and successful educator.
