Student & Graduate Reviews

3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2020

I am new PhD student at Marquette University. It is hard to evaluate the program right now, but I feel like Mechanical Engineering is a growing program in MU.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Marquette University offers a wonderful counselor preparation program; there are many opportunities for research as well as support in gaining clinical experience and internships. The university offers many opportunities for students to get to know one another and the professors are incredibly competent, yet approachable. The diversity of the campus and Milwaukee area provide a unique cultural experience. The only downside to such an incredible experience is the price tag. As a private university, Marquette can be expensive.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Great program and amazing teachers - I have really enjoyed my time at Marquette. My only complaint is the area surrounding the campus is not very safe.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program for speech-language pathology at Marquette University is composed of a tight support network. The faculty is readily accessible to answer questions and to guide the students to acquire a variety of experience and exposure that will benefit future possible clients. Clinical experience is not limited to a particular age group or demographic and this is particularly important because most real life settings are just as, or even more, diverse. In addition, this graduate program offers a bilingual specialization that teaches students about the acquisition of Spanish and English and the impact that this has on the growing number of individuals who require assistance or therapy in one both languages. Lastly, faculty rooms, classrooms, and clinic rooms are all located in the same building. This makes the transition easy and convenient particularly on cold days. While the program has proven to positively challenge my academic and social knowledge through a variety of coursework and clinical experience, the cost of attendance is negatively challenging my economic position. Something that I have not minded much, but that some people have expressed concern about, is that some of the courses are held in the late evening.

I was not offered very much in terms of financial aid. Teachers and professors were fairly available but there were time where I had trouble getting in contact.

pros- top program in the nation, 100% pass rate con- three year program instead of two (like most other programs)
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I am majoring in Biomedical Engineering at Marquette University. This school, overall, is phenomenal and the faculty have shown that they are invested in their students' success. Plus, I have had the opportunity to work with some of the leading professors in my field. However, the cost to attend Marquette is quite hefty, the living expense in downtown Milwaukee is also pretty high, Marquette does not offer much assistance to new out-of-state graduate students, and it has a proximity to a not-so-good neighborhood. Thankfully, Marquette recognizes some of these things and offers transportation to areas close to campus. Overall, I am happy with Marquette and the passion that many faculty members have in teaching and in their research, but the overall expense it takes to go here is pretty demanding and a huge factor for any prospective student.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2018

It is an honor to be accepted into the Marquette University Master's of Physician Assistant Studies program. Marquette University and their PA program have an outstanding reputation. I will gladly pay for the quality education I am receiving, but the program is rigorous and expensive, and any financial assistance is welcome!
