Jackson State University is one of the best HBCUs in the state of Mississippi. This institution equips you the the tools you need to succeed in the world. The information that you will receive there empowers individuals and prepares them to deal with complexity, diversity and change. A liberal education helps students develop a sense of social responsibility, as well as strong and transferable intellectual and practical skills.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2009

Jackson State University gave me the best experience I could ask for in gaining preparation for the "real" world. The professors and the curriculum was intense but very thorough in giving knowledge that is necessary for me to demonstrate what is necessary in implementing therapy methods and techniques to the clients I serve everyday. I am so glad that I chose Jackson State University. No other school would have prepared me as much as my alma mater has. #theeilove

2.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

I wasn't being challenged as much as I would like to have been. Its a very competitive workforce out there, I don't feel that I am equipped with all the skills I need to put me at the top.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

There is not much else to ask for in regards to this particular graduate program. The professors are accessible, professional, supportive, and well-experienced in the field. Professors and fellow-students network on a regular basis to ensure comprehension of relative topics and career/research opportunities. The chairperson of the department determines the individual needs of each student and pushes for individual and collective success. It really is unnecessary to state that she has high expectations for each student. Every student in the program is trained in the areas of research and writing; therefore, not one student can complain that he or she has not achieved the best from his or her education. If one is interested in Criminal Justice or Criminology, I would highly recommend the graduate program at Jackson State University. The professors and staff will not only become family, but great additions to your network and reference database.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

Jackson State University is a great institution for preparing a student for a career in social work. I received overwhelming support from my professors and advisers toward earning a Master's of Social Work degree. I especially learned a lot from the Social Welfare Policy and Cultural Diversity classes. Also, I appreciate the opportunity toward furthering my career aspiration and developing my professional skills. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in pursuing a degree in social work.
