Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020

I am in the Doctor of Management Practice in Nurse Anesthesia program at Marshall University and Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) School of Nurse Anesthesia. This is a great program that prepares you to be a nurse anesthetist and an entrepreneur. This blended program is great. You get the nurse anesthesia instruction from CAMC and the business instruction from Marshall University. The staff is very helpful and everyone I have encountered has been friendly and welcoming. The curriculum is very rigorous but you will be prepared to work independently immediately after graduation. The passing rate for boards is 96% and 100% of prior graduates are employed in the field. The financial aid department is very willing to help you figure out the best plan for your situation which is very helpful. The Charleston area is nice and that's a plus. You get the benefits of being in a city without the city cost of living. A low cost of living is so important in grad school. I would recommend the Nurse Anesthetist program at Marshall University/CAMC without hesitation!

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2018

Marshall University School of Pharmacy is relatively new, and sometimes it shows. The program is under great guidance; however, it is constantly changing. The changes, which are good and bad, add stress to the students. Once the program figures everything else, it'll be a great program.

Marshall University School of Pharmacy uses the flip classroom setting, which revolves around pre-work and class discussion. This type of learning is both a pro and a con. It's beneficial for becoming a better team member, which is becoming a crucial part of healthcare, but at the same time it is hard to gauge how much you are learning compared to the traditional class room

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

The Clinical Mental Health Counseling Graduate Program at Marshall University is Marshall's longest and most profitable program. When I graduate I will be able to test for my license in Counseling as well as Certifications in Grief and Trauma. I grew up in the surrounding community my whole life and I am looking forward to be able to help the same community when I am done with school. Marshall University is the best place for me to do that. We Are Marshal!!
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros include excellent faculty who are available for help and are supportive. Classes are rigorous, but many of the classes meet with medical students so some of the material in lectures isn't relevant to graduate students.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty and students are diverse which adds a lot of value to the program. It is expensive with little opportunity for work study or scholarship eligibility.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

I think the two main pros of my graduate program are the following: the graduates from the past several years have a 100% employment rate within 6 months of graduation! The next best thing about our program is the close relationship between teachers and peers Marshall offers, we have our own little family on the first floor of Smith Hall. I believe the main flaw within our program is that there are no full time Graduate Assistant positions available through the department with graduate school being very expensive that can amount to a large amount of loans.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Professors are very helpful and contact you often. Cons: Very few internship and fellowship opportunities. Hard to find a job in this field without substantial job experience.
