Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2012

Marshall is a decent school with several really great departments. Its campus is walkable, accessible to town, and attractive. For in-state students especially, Marshall is affordable and a good value for the money. I really enjoyed the College of Liberal Arts but I know that the business and science/engineering departments have been growing and are highly regarded. For me, the biggest draw are Marshall was the Yeager Scholars program and others like it. They've now expanded to include an entire Honors College. These programs provide financial aid, study abroad opportunities, and the ability to customize your college experience with small class sizes and interesting seminars - all within the wider campus.

Degree: History

The faculty, at least in the History department, was student centered and exacting with high expectations. The facilities, library services especially, helped to get a great deal of work done well

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2017

Completing the English M.A. program at Marshall University was one of the toughest, but best experiences of my life. The faculty of the program are overly thoughtful and helpful, always providing more opportunity to enhance one's experience, education, and resume, while teaching students how to market themselves and their skills for their desired job positions. Not only did I learn much about my personal interests within the study of English, but through my graduate assistant position I also had the opportunity to teach and tutor students outside the humanities who benefited greatly from my knowledge of writing conventions across disciplines. This program helped me see the professional I wish to be, and I will be forever grateful for the confidence, skills and knowledge I acquired as an English M.A. student at Marshall University.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2008

Excellent school for athletic oriented programs, however severely lacking in funding for science based curricula. The university does an excellent job at giving students the full college experience, however it does poorly at preparing students for entry into the job market.

Marshall was a good school that prepared me for doctoral studies. It also allowed me the opportunity to earn my degree while working full time. The faculty took an interest in the students.

Degree: Healthcare Informatics
Graduation Year: 2018

The health informatics program is the best in the nation. I would advise anyone who is not a local to read review boards on the culture of the area and school. I would also advise staying professional and watching what you do and say. The community is small so you may feel as if you are always vein watched if you are not from the local area. That being said the program has great value and the cost is very reasonable compared to other graduate programs. You will learn the skills needed to excel in your career. I would focus on making your own waves and finding your own networking opportunities. Opportunities exist in the program but there are strings that may offend you. Concentrate on the curriculum and you'll be good to go.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Going to Marshall was a wonderful experience. Professors were very helpful and very easy to communicate with. Counselors were also very helpful. Course work that was reviewed/ learned was very beneficial and can be applied to everyday life. Programs such as simulations are also helpful for students looking to start their own business.The MBA program at Marshall is a very beneficial program
