Student & Graduate Reviews

3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: IUPUI is a good atmosphere for research. There are a lot of good resources on campus and opportunities to collaborate across disciplines. Our department also makes a very good effort to provide non-scholastic inter-departmental networking/social gathering opportunities Cons: Some of the graduate programs are small which means there isn't a lot of flexibility in choosing which courses to take.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

IU offers quality medical education with a large network of alumni and many faculty and associates as resources to students. Opportunities to be involved in school, academic, social, and community activities are abundant.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2016

One of the best schools to attend if you are interested in alcohol or addiction research. It is closely aligned with the Alcohol Research Center. Set in an up-and-coming affordable city.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I like the fact that professors are always available when you need to talk to them. I also like the opportunity for collaborations. I dislike that the school itself is located in downtown Indianapolis and there is quite a bit of crime in school and in the surrounding areas.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Clinical psychology program is intense but educational. I managed to obtain a high number of publications and an NIH grant, as well as a large breadth of clinical experience.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I really love the experiences I have received as an MSW student within my practicum placements. Networking has also been amazing. With that being said, I believe there needs to be a greater emhasis on the academic side of the program. Some of the classes and professors were great but several others were subpar.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2014

The Library and Information Science program at IUPUI provides valuable skills to students hoping to work professionally in a variety of organizations. Through management, reference, technical services, and more coursework the program gives students a distinct advantage outside of the program. At times the program was not flexible for full time workers who also worked in the program full time but overall professors were easy to reach and work with throughout each course.
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

Obtaining a graduate degree from SPEA at IUPUI has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I won't pretend that everything about the campus is perfect, or that IUPUI is the right choice for everyone, but it has helped me to land my dream job with the company I wanted to work for, so I would highly recommend IUPUI as an option for perspective grad students.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2012

I learned a lot from my peers, as well as my instructors in this program. They are very supportive, and eager to connect you with the museum community locally and beyond, which is a must in this job market. The program stresses museum-community engagement, not collections development. This is great for those interested in education and exhibits. Maybe not as great for collections students. But it certainly offers a useful perspective of museum work today.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the medical dosimetry program at IUPUI. The program director has more experience in the field than anyone else in the state and helped develop a few of the techniques that are used nationwide to treat cancer patients with radiation therapy. All of the staff is fantastic to work with and really care about our education in this program. Other than feeling rushed at times (which is how it will actually be all the time when I actually work in the field), I have no complaints about the program. I've only been in the program for three months and I have learned more than I ever thought possible, so I know in another nine months I will be more than prepared to enter the workforce as a medical dosimetrist.
