Student & Graduate Reviews

4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

James Madison University had me take relevant classes towards my Master's degree that I use every day in my teaching profession. I was readily prepared to teach when I finished, and many places I interviewed have been impressed with JMU's education program, helping to make me a great candidate.

I had a great experience and learned a lot. My master's program included many projects with non-profits and county governments which provided valuable experience.

JMU prepared me so well for my career, that I don't have much of a learning curve when I got my first job. The culture and atmosphere of JMU also provided me with countless memories and stories.

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

The JMU Grad school provided an excellent opportunity to learn in a variety of ways. We not only learned from the classroom and reading but through experiential exercises, discussion, and hands-on practice. It also provided great opportunities to supplement some costs through a variety of Graduate Assistantships throughout campus. The staff is helpful and concerned with not only your career and academic growth, but personal growth as well.

James Madison University offers many opportunities to its students. It is a school that is still finding its identity, especially with graduate programs.

3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

There are many pro's to this program. The professor/student ration is very low granting students access to the professor almost daily. The professors are easily accessible. The program is designed in a way that students aren't overloaded with coursework and able to concentrate on each of their classes. There is a mixture of reading and class discussion to encompass all types of learners. Guest speakers are brought in to give students more resources outside of the college setting. Your "classmates" follow the same track that you do so everyone goes on to the next class together which helps build relationships among peers. So far, I have not discovered any con's.
