Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

Rubbish. Administrators are incompetent, labs are underfunded and there are way too many 5th year students with no publications. Also campus is quite dangerous as you have to worry about violent crime, aggressive drug-addled homeless and other GSU students. GSU has tried to up their research game by hiring PIs from Emory and other more prestigious programs but these labs quickly hollow out as old members jump ship for one reason or another. I'm in the latter category and left my program as I was having difficulty finding a quality post-doc or industry position that would even consider interviewing a candidate from GSU. If you've never experienced a world-class research environment you might be impressed by all the shiny unused equipment but you'd be missing out on the collaboration and networking that are essential for long- (and short-) term success. Avoid at all costs.

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The worst part about this program is that fees and health insurance costs are outrageous. However, there are way more pros than cons for GSU. For the most part, the classes are really great, the faculty are interested in making sure students are successful and everyone is willing to provide feedback and support.

I love GSU's neuroscience program. It's very collaborative and feels like a second home to me now. The faculty are very accessible and the research is superb.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is designed to get us straight I to out field with minimal downtime before school and being hired. They make sure students are well prepared for certification exams as well as the clinical setting. Small class size allows for more practice and more individual attention from professors.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Georgia State is a school which provides its students a very valuable education. The professors are usually available for students who need them, and are more than willing to help. My particular program gives me the flexibility I prefer when picking my coursework while still keeping me focused on a specific track. The professors are also extremely supportive of students submitting their works for publication, which is amazing.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Georgia State University has a wonderful Masters in Public Health Program. The school and faculty members provide their students with the opportunity to maximize their time and benefits. They aid students with networking, career development, resume building, internships, fellowships, and tutoring if needed. Staff and professors take time to meet the needs of their students, and they geniunely care about the students' well-being, education, and career path.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The one thing that I loved about GSU was the supportiveness of the faculty and staff. The only thing I would change about GSU is the student accounts office. Recieving and applying scholarships to my account was similar to pulling teeth.
