This is an amazing graduate program, overall my cons are mainly that it is expensive but that is because it is a private institution.

Marquette University offers a great Nurse Practitioner program that offers a variety of tracks from primary to acute care. Their program is accommodating for students to be able to work full time and attend school. The professors are excellent, knowledgeable and supportive, making for a great learning environment. I am proud to be a Marquette student!

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm in the Physician Assistant program at Marquette, a very competitive program with over 500 applicants for 55 available spots. The program has very high expectations, making it one of the most reputable PA programs nationally. With the high work load, my days consist of school and studying. The school is located in an area of high crime rate, but being cautious about my surroundings, have kept me safe. Being a transfer from a different college, there are no scholarship offered through Marquette, with tuition being over $35,000 a year.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2016

The philosophy graduate program at Marquette is rigorous and competitive. There is little by way of financial support (unlike programs at other universities), and what is available often results in competitions among students. Nevertheless, the faculty are diverse in their interests and specialties, and the department has over twenty full-time faculty. One can specialize in ancient, modern, or contemporary philosophy, in race theory or philosophy of mind and psychology. The diversity of the program is one of its greatest assets, alongside the knowledge that the professor's impart to the students. In addition, the department is excellent at preparing students for teaching. I have taught undergraduates autonomously for a number of years now, and this itself assists in the learning process. To this extent, Marquette has an overwhelming amount of philosophical and pedagogical resources, but lacks financial resources. I have grown immensely during my time at Marquette, but the financial burden is extensive. I have two young children, and teaching as an adjunct pays very little. It is difficult for the university to offset this burden on graduate students, but, I still have found my experience at Marquette to be predominantly beneficial and rewarding.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

It blends business and economics which works together in so many ways but it is a very costly school. It is very well known and hold more prestige which is also why I chose it for a graduate school. With the high cost any scholarship would be very helpful.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program for physical therapy provides an excellent education. Professors care about the students as a whole and not just academically. The professors truly want their students to succeed professionally and in any other aspect of life. Everyone in the program is very knowledgeable and confident in their teachings; they are willing meet with students outside of class. Students in the program want to be the difference in the world, and have the strongest passion for helping and caring for others.
4.17 out of 5.0
