Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Counseling

IUP offers the best "bang for your buck" when it comes to a graduate school education. The faculty is highly invested in the students' best interests, and will go above and beyond to ensure that everyone is receiving the best quality of education and support. Faculty is also very willing to go out of their way to offer research opportunities that are aimed at developing future work-related skills.

The Sport Science program at IUP is divided into three categories. I am in the Exercise Science track. Pros of the Master of Sport Science program include the variety of classes available to students. There are core classes everyone has to take and there are elective classes of all kinds with topics that interest a variety of people. The professors are also kind and try to teach new information to students. I am in with a good group of students. Class sizes are small so you get to know everyone. Cons are the evening classes. This is great if you work during the day, but by that time in the day everyone is tired and ready to be done with class before it even starts. Some of the grad classes are combined with the undergrad classes. It makes the work easier, but it also means you are paying more money to learn less. A few Graduate Assistantships are available, but there are not enough for everyone.

The pros and cons of Safety Science revolves around the elimination of hazards and risks that may pose potential threats to humans ranging from environmental, industrial, mechanical and construction hazards to mention a few. My graduate program is designed to prepare highly qualified individuals for careers in the safety, health, and environmental (SHE) profession, conduct SHE research, and to develop industry partnerships to further enhance the profession.

The HPED program is very well thought out and caters to a variety of students. Having already been a certified teacher they have a program designed to help me continue my education and they do not force us to complete the same assignments that the students who are seeking certification. If you are already a certified teacher the program is done in about a year so there is not a big time frame to be able to complete a thesis.

C and T is a great program to prepare teacher-researchers. The potential for personal and professional growth is high, and faculty and fellow students are very supportive.

I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania for both my undergrad and graduate degrees and have been more than pleased in both instances. My professors have been helpful, invested in my success and accessible whenever I needed them. The only negative I could possibly imagine about IUP is that some students may be looking for an experience in such a small town. As a parent of college students myself, however, I love the small town atmosphere. It makes me more comfortable that my son is safe.

Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are small classes and a more personal dynamic setting. The cons are there should be more financial scholarships available for the working adult and parking is a major con at this college.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the Masters programs are too in-depth to be totally effective in teaching students at a graduate level. The amount of interaction between students and professors is minimal than that found on my local campus where I earned my B.A.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program is very challenging but at the same time very rewarding. The challenge of the program enhances the experience you get out of the graduate school. With the program being somewhat small the only negative aspect would be the lack of class selection.
