Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The VCD program is great for professionals wanting to design solutions for all kind of problems within organizations. It is innovative and you can easily see how to apply the program contents to real life situations. The downside of the program is that most of the people don't even know how to define the core values of the program and there is ambiguity about its application.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The program's asynchronous design and accessibility was wonderful; unfortunately the course design and administrative support were not.

3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

Our graduate program includes instructors with a high level of experience and knowledge about the field of criminal justice and public safety. However, having a faculty with a wider profession network would greatly benefit students seeking to start careers.
1.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2015

People in this program or a school as a whole are not interested in mentoring or educating students. Even if you are in abusive environment, the school choose to defend a professor because of politics. Never recommend to choose this program.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is very innovative and focuses on a field of study that is trending and has many possibilities of employment upon graduation. The downside is that the field of study is not clearly defined and its name lead students to think that it is about graphic design and/or multimedia when it doesn't even touch those fields.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a brand-new program so the possibilities are very big at the moment. This program is a great fit for those who have motivation and drive to make a difference. One major area of consideration is that Indiana's Art therapy community is still very young, so participation in this program requires a dedication to bettering the field in the state. While it is a young program, the faculty are all wonderful and incredibly well-qualified and knowledgeable. I have learned more in the last three months than any period of my life. It is a full-time, rigorous, program.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Since my graduate program is an upcoming field and not many people know about it I was apprehensive to select this field. But I made a right decision and this school has given me plenty of opportunities to enhance my portfolio in this field. Few years down the line this field will have immense influence in everyone's lives. Even though number of students are less and the internships/jobs are competitive in nature I am sure I will excel at what I'm doing.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2104

My graduate program,Master of Science in Accounting, is offered by Kelley School of Business Indianapolis. It has a huge reputation in the market. Job prospect of MSA grad from my school is great.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2013

Many good professors, specifically teaching classes. However, a large amount of terrible advisers as well. Unfortunately, many of the good teaching professors don't take students for research assistants. Plus, the department does nothing to regulate or remove the terrible research advisers. Thus, the masters experience without thesis can be excellent. The overall Ph.D. experience is definitively sub-par.
