Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Offer a part-time counseling program in a satellite campus in my area. High quality programming and instruction. Grad students have a voice in programming for their cohort. Since the program uses a cohort model, with mostly the same students taking most classes together, peer support is strong.CACREP credentialed. Cons: Satellite campus allows slightly less access to administration than main campus.

Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program at IUP has been wonderful so far. The staff is knowledgeable and supportive and provide the students with real life and hands on experiences. The only draw back I have encountered is paying for my classes. Ideally, I hope to graduate by 2016, but I have been paying for my classes out of pocket and it is becoming a bit expensive.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a very affordable program because it is in the State school system. Most of the professors are great and treat you as an equal because you are only one step away from being a fellow Ph.D. The workload is sometimes intense with reading especially if you work a full time job while taking classes.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

The GIS program is great. You work with real companies on your projects rather than doing hypotheticals. The range of classes gives you a good feel for the classes. Indiana the city is interesting. There's the Walmart, the Irish pub, the small video game store. A very quaint, cute town. It does have a lot of awesome bike trails and other out door activities. Plus a really good ice cream shop. For the tuition and living costs, it's a great degree. Very worth it.

Pros-Excellent Program; Faculty are very accessible and helpful; surrounding area is safe; quality of education is great Cons-Additional fees are a bit ridiculous, but that is probably the case in all educational institutions.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The Adult and Community Education program at Indiana University of Pennsylvania is entirely online. This makes the degree accessible to nontraditional students who have a number of other responsibilities. The program's professors are experts in the field, extremely helpful and always available when needed. The only drawback to the program is the lack of personal connection; however, most of the participants would not be able to take part in the program if not for the online format. I highly recommend the ACE program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

A great graduate program that is fast to get through. Most of the program is based on electives that you get to choose but there are some required core courses. Also, the program has a small batch of professors making them more accessible to the students. The only downside is the course load is pretty high with the amount of papers you will have to write during your time in the program.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

I love the small class sizes and that professors very willing to meet with you outside of class and offer help. Biology department is currently expanding with more professors with different specialties, wider variety and stronger focus on research/thesis opportunities and adding new technology/advanced equipment. I like ethnic diversity, however, they are accepting a very large number of foreign exchange students which makes communication with peers difficult since exchange students cannot speak english well.
