Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2011

My college is a great place to go, particularly if you want to live and work within the city. It has a wide variety of programs and provides practical application to help students find careers that suit their interests and skills.

The program is located in the heart of Atlanta Downtown. It offers a diverse pool of renowned faculty working in many areas of immediate public policy significance. The faculty are nice and easily accessible. However, due to its location, it does not offer the typical campus-life experiences some might want. At any rate, some might view this as an advantage.

Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: I definitely like the career support opportunities. Because of the AYSPS career counselor, I've been able to obtain a job and a internship since started my graduate program last year. Cons: Well I assume this is the same for all graduate programs, but I find it a little difficult to have a social life here.

The cons I have about the program is the limited flexibility of class times during the week.

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

I am a PhD student at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies, Department of Public Management and Policy. I believe this program is Georgia State University's biggest and best asset. While the program is quite rigorous and at times unbearable, I believe this is to be expected in any reputable doctoral program. In addition, the PMAP faculty is one of the most supportive and available group of professors I have ever worked with; the funding is reasonable and flexible; the school is directly on the MARTA train line; and because many of the faculty are nationally or internationally renown in their specific fields, it is a privilege to work with them and their prestigious network of colleagues. Thanks GSU!
