Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The PMBA program is not easy, but is manageable. The program does a great job to help you transition from working adult to working student. I have already been able to apply some of my studies to my current work environment.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

I think that Georgia State University's Doctor of Physical Therapy program is top-notch! The faculty is very supportive and makes it their priority that the students succeed. I could not have chosen a better school to pursue a DPT degree!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

I love my graduate program! They provide me with plenty of support, means for networking, and seminars to strengthen myself as a professional. The student body at GSU School of Public Health is incredibly diverse with a large number of international students. This allows me to see many perspectives and learn from other students I wouldn't otherwise get to interact with. The faculty are extremely talented, well-versed, and passionate about public health. The only con is that GSU is a commuter campus, so you must make a significant effort to get connected with your student community.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2017

In this graduate program, I feel completely supported by my advisors. I know they consider my future success a part of their success in their roles. Another pro is the open-mindedness and diversity on this campus. There is something for everyone. Atlanta is a big city with a lot to do when you have free time.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2012

I learned a lot of information while in this program. The Urban Teacher Leadership program has opened my eyes to the many facets of education and how those factors affect student achievement. This program has made me more aware of ways I am able to assist my students in their learning. I loved the hours of most of the classes. As a working educator, it was imperative that the hours did not interfere with my schedule. The professors were very understanding of the non-traditional hours that educators occasionally have to work. I also loved that all of the professors were current or retired educators in local school systems. They were well versed on the laws and regulations that we students were to adhere to.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

I love Georgia State University. It is an urban research institution and it has rightly earned that title. The wealth of knowledge that I have gained through the Public Health Institute through classroom experience and networking has been invaluable. The Institute of Public Health frequently partners with Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University to provide networking events for the students. The Institute of Public Health is growing in size yet still prides itself on being a close-knit community with completely accessible staff. The variety of internship and graduate assistant-ship opportunities are endless and the Institute of Public Health is quickly becoming a equal favorite among Public Health employers as Emory has. The only con of my graduate program is that we are currently awaiting to be a School of Public Health, but I have no doubt that by Fall 2013 we will be just that.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently an entering first year graduate student. Meeting with the program directors I have learned a lot. Some pros are, the school seems to be very helpful in just about all areas from jobs to housing. Also the communication is very well on point. Some cons are for entering graduate students it seems like you are left on your own as far as finacial support

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

The religious studies program at Georgia State University has strong individual faculty, but seems to lack direction as a unified program. I was lucky to develop strong relationships with a couple faculty members who took a concerned interest in the development of my academic strengths and in preparing me for my next steps in academia. However, GSU is a state school with a mediocre reputation, so it's difficult to stand out among other students with more recognizable alma maters when it comes time to apply to other graduate programs. That's when having strong recommendations becomes important. Atlanta is a very cool city with neighborhoods for every kind of person. Public transportation is poor in the city, but there are two stops on MARTA that are right on the GSU campus. The campus is downtown, so there is some crime-- muggings, mostly.
