Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The con is that there is little funding available for all graduate students because political science is not a popular field.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

As a student returning to the classroom after a three years hiatus, I find that environment is so diverse that I am not alone in being a non-traditional student amongst those who would be defined as the "traditional" graduate/college student.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgia State's location in the center of Atlanta offers a unique experience for urban living, while its proximity to the CDC grants students unique internship opportunities. The department offers a wide range of classes and teaching positions, and the extensive selection of labs at the university offers a wide variety of studies for graduate students. The department is transitioning into a much larger unit of the university and therefore sometimes experiences growing pains.
