Student & Graduate Reviews

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.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The best part about my graduate program is the accessibility of the Faculty and Staff. They are willing to help you achieve whatever goal you have set for yourself. Even with their busy schedule, they go out of their way to provide a infrastructure of support for their students. Another great facet of my program is the access to technology. Our campus has ton of technology that help with research, academics, and making school cheaper for students. I'd like to see our campus get more involved with downtown Indianapolis. With access to so many organizations right in downtown Indianapolis, I feel like a bigger effort could be spent collaborating on real projects, so students get some experience in the real world.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: They offer great classes and opportunity for those who choose to go for the graduate program, including paid internships and other job/career offers. Cons: The deadline for signing up for the graduate program is a bit short and some of the details on the required GPA is a little off. Not too much, but there should be an option for students who want to raise their GPA to the required 3.0 over the summer or the semester before the enter into the program, especially if the margin to the requirement is small enough (2.85 and higher) that one or two classes can raise it.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The campus is in downtown Indianapolis. It is easily accessible and offers many opportunities in the surrounding area. The academics are highly rated. For such a large school, I was surprised how personal and easily available the professors are. They are very willing to help and understand the daily life pressures of adult students. I am very happy I chose to attend school at IUPUI.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The School of Social Work Masters Program at IUPUI is a program that is competitive with others. The school has given students access to a great education through efficient and high level teaching that helps students to excel and critically think. The only downside of the program would be the accesibility to extra-curricular courses to help students learn specific things they are interested. This is in the work for future years and the staff is always willing to listen to the students to keep improving the program for years to come.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in the physician assistant studies program here at IUPUI. The faculty and supporting staff members are amazing. The school is very affordable, but remains very competitive with other colleges, universities, and graduate schools in the state. The school's location is very convenient, nestled in the downtown Indianapolis area. Within the Physician Assistant program itself, there is a family-like atmosphere, which is welcoming for students from all walks of life. I am proud to say that I am an IUPUI graduate student!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

While I think the overall program is very good, I do feel that some of the professors are difficult to reach in the online classes.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2016

The dentistry program covers an extensive didactic curriculum that involves microbiology, dental sciences, biological systems, and clinical applications. The program is committed to increasing the use of technology to improve learning on and off campus. Currently, curriculum, clinical efficiency, and admissions tasks forces are being assembled to better the patient, student, and faculty experience. Faculty are usually available for answering questions. Students are encouraged to spend "out of lecture" time in the clinics to gain early clinical experience. A recently graduated dental student once told me, "the most valuable part of the D.D.S. education is that we, as student-dentists, are involved in every aspect of patient care. When we graduate, we are ready to take on all aspects of patient care, not just traditional treatment planning and technical skills."

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Choosing a people oriented field that involves sharing a great amount of information was what I ideally wanted when I chose to attend the only Library Sciences program in the state of Indiana, however, with the majority of their classes transitioning to being offered only online, it makes it difficult to meet people and practice what we are learning. Professors and adjuncts make an effort to get students to get to know each other through assignments on social outlets such as Facebook, but that hardly makes up for meeting people face to face. However, IUPUI does a great job of allowing students to take their time to complete the coursework, especially since graduate students are busy enough as it is.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my program are that it is rated 6th in the country, and the networking possibilities are vast. The classes are tailored for practical application towards whatever concentration you want to pursue, whether it is Nonprofit Management or Urban Sustainability. The cons are that most of the classes are at night since it caters to working students, which for someone going to school full time can be a negative. Another con is that the Indy transportation scene is really non-existent, so students have to bike or drive to campus.
