Degree: Communications

I have met some great people in this graduate program and have already had some eye-opening experiences! I would recommend this program to any communications undergraduate looking to increase their skill sets.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

Overall, my experience in the public health program at IUPUI was fine. Professors are great, accommodating, and experienced in the field. However, there was never a cohort sense or connectedness to other students. This was a program working professionals tended to complete as a side to their already busy lives. There was not much room for those who were exploring areas, but was instead designed for those who already had a direction. Since, the program has changed including the establishment of the School of Public Health where it is becoming more adept for the traditional student.

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Indiana has a great medical program that is the second largest in the country (and growing). Indianapolis is a wonderful city to live where you can get the big city feel and still feel at home.

Phd students will graduate with the same degree as the main campus master's would be labeled with the campus.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2014

The networking available at IUPUI is incredible. Many of the professors in the department are/were professionals, so they have not only an academic approach, but also an applied approach. They are able to share best practices for Nonprofit Management. The program is also collaborative, helping students help each other. Collaborating instead of stiff competition among students is helpful to make the greatest impact on the community.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

I am in an evening program that has allowed me to work while taking classes. It can be a lot, but this program has been a great experience.
2.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I paid out of state tuition, which is more than three times the price of resident tuition, to take classes where the professors knew thier content but had no background in teaching and did not know how to teach in many cases. Also, there were times when I knew more about the subject than the professors because it is a school counseling program and they are all mental health counselors with little to know school experience while I have worked in schools as a teacher for 12 years.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

If you are lucky enough to obtain a tenured staff as a professor the quality of the classes are usually top notch. However, if not, it seems as though you are wasting your money. Advising staff is often snippy and rude, but if you are on top of your schedule, you can do fine as far as getting your courses done. This program is marketed as a flexible 2 year program; however, it is very difficult to complete in 4 semesters. Class schedules are not flexible. You will be forced into taking classes that may not work for you (often times, required courses are only offered by one professor, evenings only, Saturday's only).
