Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

This Georgia State program has many attributes both positive and negative. For one, the professors have great variety and experience in their prospective fields. The program is extremely reputable and helps you to work in almost any field of education with the versatility of future planning opportunities. As a negative, the school's safety could be improved upon as it is in an urban environment.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I have enjoyed my time at Georgia State University enormously. The University has a great program with inspirational teachers who have teach because they love to inspire others. My program has been trying with the current class set but I feel as if I have learned a lot about the education field for future terms of life experience. My only wish is that Georgia State University was a little bit more mobile with their transportation and that they add some international diversity to add to the campus.

Challenging academics with supportive network. Inter-departmental cooperation and clear departmental identities contribute to a well rounded and valuable experience.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The student career center appeared to find a job for a girl that knew no programming, but told me I would have to find one myself using their service. They have a lot of options, but I still feel they could have done more because of that. The school seems to always have errors when it comes to my account, but I can usually get them resolved quickly. I encountered this same problem at a school for Technology, so I feel this isn't too large an issue. The only financial aid I have been offered during my time at Georgia State University came in the form of loans. I would prefer another type, but it's from the school itself, so I suppose it's understandable. With everything else, the school seems to be fine. There is a large amount of diversity at the school, which makes me think they don't hold a bias towards any particular group. They have a lot of public transport services located near to the school as well as several fun spots from the center of the city. In addition, the teachers seem to give a decent amount of work, which helps you learn but does not overload you. I cannot comment on the value of the graduate program, however. I have only recently been admitted and do not know how well it will serve me in my attempts to find a job with the degree.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is currently growing, so it is in the middle of a transition phase which leads to a lot of pot holes in taking care of problems while the cost of attendance is on the rise. However, the professors are extremely helpful and caring.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

Having attended the University of Georgia for my undergraduate degree in finance I had very high expectations for my master's degree at Georgia State University. The quality of the teachers and their experience was what I would call on par with the average university. That may be sufficient for some students, but I am hoping to be as well prepared as I can be for my future career path. The university is also lacking in its national reputation, unlike other colleges in Georgia, such as Emory University, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the University of Georgia. Conversely, the campus is in the middle of Atlanta, one of the largest metropolitan cities in the US, so job opportunities will always be available for new graduates. The graduate program is very affordable and convenient of working individuals. The graduate accounting program is offered in multiple locations so I do not have to travel far to attend class after work. The program prepares its participants well to sit for the CPA exam shortly after graduation because CPA study materials are included in the cost of the graduate program, so that is a positive.

This is a great school, however there are aspects that should be managed in oncoming years.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at GSU. The faculty and supporting staff are exceptional! Also, Atlanta is an awesome place to live. I am in the final semester of completing my Master's degree and will miss GSU dearly. My classes were fantastic and I could not have asked for more. My time here will not be forgotten.
