Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is an accelerated graduate program and is very intense. Be prepared to work very hard, but also obtain ample of knowledge and skills. Faculty is very supportive and want to see you succeed. There has been a shortage of preceptors among all graduate nursing programs and can be quite a stressor. Overall I have been very impressed and happy with choosing this school to advance my career as a nurse.

Degree: Software Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

Currently an entering student. Speaking with advisers, coordinators, and staff, made me feel I had made the right choice to further my education in computer technology.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are that the professors challenge you to work hard and understand the material. They give you the quality education you need to help you succeed in your career path. The con's are that they need to be more accessible to students who are online like have in person class meetings.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The good: Excellent campus, excellent program. Mine was a Masters of Science in Conflict Management. It was for working professionals, and so I had classes every two weeks for two days. Great support from program staff. Everyone was accessible. So far, the teachers here are first rate! The food is unbelievable. Be careful! You can gain weight here. The bad: I wanted to stay on campus for that college experience, but the housing is over $600 a month, and you had to sign a one year lease. Great housing, but terribly expensive and unreasonable terms for a 16 month program. No scholarship opportunities for this program.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2013

The Masters online program for IT is the best option for those with full time jobs and cannot make it to campus.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

Cons: Accounting Master program is only offered online. Not many professors are supportive when it comes to assisting with job decisions. Diversity of students' backgrounds. Very small amount of people associate Southern Polytechnic State University with Business School. Most think of it as an Engineering School. Pros: Students are not required to take GMAT, which attracts a diversity of students of various backgrounds, which is a CON. Tuition is not as expensive as in other institutions with similar programs.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

This program is very intense. It is a 16-month, premium-priced grad program with classes every other weekend meals included (classes go straight through the summer). There is a lot of reading to be done and many papers. The good thing is that once you complete the readings and don't miss any classes, you should do well. Typically, there are only papers for coursework (not tests / exams... or should I say - very rarely would you get a test). It can be challenging if you are working and have children also, but that goes for any studying when you have a job and a family. The faculty are very accessible and very knowledgeable. Personally, I think it's a wonderful program and I would not change the knowledge and experience for the world. Another pro - There is a yearly one-week Study Abroad (which is included in the fees) where the class travels to an area to learn more about the conflict there (2013 class goes to Ireland).
