Student & Graduate Reviews

3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros: it's not too far from my home. It has an awesome reputation for producing wonderfully crafted teachers. It's in the heart of Atlanta. Cons: It doesn't provide financial for non degree programs. Should offer more online courses to avoid the traffic.

I enjoy the level of education that GSU has to offer and am very happy to be part of the student body there. The teachers are really top-notch.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program is that it allows me to be able to concentrate my focus on what i want to study and be aware of for my future benefit. The cons of my graduate program is that there are unnecessary courses that come along with studying into the field that i am interested in. Overall, its all worth it because it is what i want to do and i would not change all that i have worked for now. :)

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The M.Ed. in School Counseling at Georgia State is a strong program for budding professionals. My classes, coursework, peers and professors continually challenge me to be a prepared professional. I have learned much about multicultural counseling--counseling and advocating for students of color, students who identify as LGBTQA, and students with special needs and disabilities. I am happy to have enrolled in a program that acknowledges the experiences of various people groups and teaches me that counseling services provided must be sensitive to each client. Moreover, I am halfway through my program and my professors have already provided several networking opportunities to meet and shadow school counseling professionals Most of my courses are held in the middle of city, which tends to have a higher crime rate than more rural areas; however, my school makes an effort to keep students safe by offering police escorts in the evenings and notifying students when a crime related to the school community occurs.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

The M.S.I.S. program is extremely success and ensures its students are equally, if not more, successful as the program. From the dean to the counselors and professors, there is an abundance of resources available to become successful in the program. The only con of the program is how expensive the tuition. However, like the saying goes, "You get what you pay for".

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2020

The program is expanding and there are a lot of opportunities for growth if you are self-motivated. I have had the chance to forge my own direction and start new projects. The downside is that there are not a lot of resources or specialists to go to and many basic techniques need to be learned on your own.
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2015

While many think of GSU campus being unsafe for students, the business school is not located in the downtown campus but in the Buckhead campus. Buckhead is an affluent uptown district in Atlanta that is completely safe and easily accessible. It might be a bit expensive to live around this campus, but you can seek housing in nearby places that is closer to the Marta train stations. This campus also hosts a lot of research centers which will be helpful for students seeking research assistantships. The business school career center is well networked but sometimes you will have to carve out your own niche to find that opportunity you deserve. Being an international student, you might have to make sure you are clear about your fee structure, housing, program, tuition waivers(if you hold a GRA) etc. before starting, since you will not be notified about anything until asked for. Co ordination between the main and the business school campus is pretty weak.

Degree: Taxation
Graduation Year: 2017

J. Mack Robinson College of Business is top notch and well known in the Atlanta area. I am proud to be a part of the school, both as an alum and a current graduate student.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty for GSU's social work program is amazing. The professors are accessible and want the students to succeed. The opportunities for valuable field education are great as the school is in downtown Atlanta. I have really enjoyed my time in this program so far.
