Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

My program is called Transition to Teach, and it is for students who hold a bachelor's degree, but decide they would like to become an educator. It's ideal for people like me, who maybe thought one career would be sufficient during undergrad, but post graduation realized they needed a change based on life style, change of interest, etc. The program allows you to be a certified teacher before actually completing the Master's Degree which also very neat. The only con going into the program is if your degree is very different from the education field, then you don't have any of the prerequisite information that your fellow classmates may have. The transition students are mixed in with undergraduate students at the beginning of the program, but later will be separated. However, the program is designed to prepare you to teach even if have not taken the prerequisite courses.

MSW Direct is a rigorous program with prestigious faculty and the quality of education is superb, along with innovative delivery of resources and communications.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I found that the Event Tourism department is slightly unorganized. I'm a full month into my first semester and I still haven't been assigned an advisor. I feel a little unguided and I really have no idea what's expected of me or what I should expect of my classes. The coursework, however, has been fun, interesting, and informative.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: Teaching relevant and practical skills to apply in the workplace, ability to network with individuals within your career field, offering flexible times to schedule classes for students who work full time, offering adequate parking space for all students, and flexibility to access academic resources off campus. Cons: Limited opportunities for meals, limited meeting space for large events, construction projects are constantly in progress, and doors/buildings lock too early for students taking classes that run later than 9 PM.

Being in the very beginning stages of the Graduate program through Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis, I can honestly say it has been an easy transition from my undergrad program. I am enrolled in the Online MSW - Direct program and am very excited to get my graduate school underway. I have had the privilege to speak with different offices to make sure that all of my paperwork and documents were submitted on time and have received the best support from all of the individuals that have assisted me. I recommend any Indiana University as my #1 choice for any degree or certificate.

Degree: Social Work

The MSW online program has made it easier to work full time while attending grad school. The coursework is very interactive and still makes you feel connected to a class room setting. I do not feel I am missing out by completing school online.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Our program truly benefits those looking for a future career in medicine. Whether applying to medical school, dental school, physician assistant school or other medical programs, the Masters of Cellular and Integrative Physiology will prepare a student sufficiently in order to be successful in the respective healthcare position. Challenging, yet rewarding, this program truly tests one's abilities within graduate level and medical academia. I believe that the strong integration of medicine and research within the program also a major benefit to those going into health.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

As an aspiring sports reporter, this program provides a unique opportunity to get a Master's Degree in Sports Journalism, something only available at a couple of schools in the country. It also is provided in the center of a booming sports city in Indianapolis, and the internship and job opportunities are plentiful. The only cons I see with this program is the high cost and unavailable student aid or school scholarships. The career choices it prepares you for are not those with a high income, yet the cost of the program is very high, thus dropping the true monetary value of the program. All in all, this is a fantastic program that I would strongly recommend.

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

I have really enjoyed my time thus far at IUPUI. The professors of my program are approachable and more than willing to share their knowledge. The IUPUI experience comes along with the big city experience, which includes crime. Personally, I have never been a victim of crime while in Indianapolis, but have known many people who have.
