This will be my 1st year at Grand Valley but from everything I have experienced so far..I love it!
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

All of the professors at GVSU seem very helpful and care about the students. They are always willing to help and talk with you. The cost is one of the cons as it is is quite expensive each semester. But overall, I thin GVSU is a great choice for graduate school.

The English Masters program at Grand Valley State University will provide you with a solid foundation in literary theory and analysis.

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a very good program and you learn a lot, but the work load is heavy. Be prepared not to have a life outside of school work for the next few years. But the reward will be worth it in the end.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that is helps prepare for specific careers and provides excellent resources. The cons are that the department is small, therefore, professors have limited amounts of time to spend with students outside of class.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am just beginning to work on my Masters degree. Everyone has been very accommodating and helpful along the way.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The only aspect of the Master's of Social Work program are that all the classes are at night. My job is also at night, so there were conflicts in scheduling as I acclimated to the program. The pros are that you have a good variety of classes to choose from as you narrow your focus. I have also had great experiences with the faculty at Grand Valley.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Staff and faculty are great and helpful. I just wish there were more financial aid available to graduate students when it is so expensive to attend.
