Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros consists of friendly staff, peacful and friendly campus as well as surrounding community. The university is the heart and sole of Jacksonville, AL. The cons are the lack of entertainment, the location and lack of staff. In some cases, there is only one professor that teaches a class.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

The administrators of Public Administration have been outstanding in helping me with entering the program. I have the flexibility to complete my entire program online. They even offer 6 & 8 week courses during the summer semester. The only con I have is not being able to physically attend class because I work 2 hours away on a 40 hour schedule. Overall Jacksonville State University is still the friendliest campus in the South and this is what makes them truly amazing.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I really enjoyed attending school at JSU. I had heard the motto "The friendliest campus in the south" and it really was true. The staff are great teachers and are readily available to help. The campus is beautiful and I left there feeling as though I was prepared to conquer the world.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Being a former graduate at Jacksonville State has allowed me to have great passion for my major. I feel that Jacksonville is the greatest place to receive your education in the field of teaching. The amount of opportunity and hands on experiences are phenomenal. My only cons to this University in my eyes is the cost. Having a companion who already has loans, I choose to have better options. God has allowed me the opportunity to finish my bachelors without any loans and I would like to do the same with my Masters.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel the pros are I will be trained to become a history professor and learn the important details of the facts of history. The cons are it will be hard to find a job at first due to the market for history teachers and professors.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Jacksonville State University started as a Teacher's school. It has a high reputation as being a great school for Education. I enjoy the classes and the flexibility of the program.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is great, but I do wish it were easier for working adults to be a part of. I had to quit my full time day job to continue my education. That makes it difficult financially for my family.
1.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Systems Engineering
Graduation Year: 2012

It is not labeled correctly. They want to label the degrees as manufacturing instead of engineering. This hurts when trying to get a job.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of this program are that it has a reasonable workload and online classes are available for people who cannot make it to lectured classes. The main con is that there is little help from staff to aid in obtaining work in the field.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The school and faculty have been very willing to help, but it is impossible to have a full-time career and complete some of the programs. As a graduate student, I was hoping to be able to work a normal job and take classes in the evenings or online, but with my particular program that is not possible for the first year.
