Graduation Year: 2016

The professors of knowledgeable and always willing to help. The financial aid is almost non-existent.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the accessibility of faculty is a positive compared to that of other institutions. Also, the value of a degree at Marshall is quite extraordinary as well. Perhaps one of the only negatives is the surrounding area of Huntington--crime has increased in recent years.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I am extremely happy with my experience at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University. I am an MS1 and a nontraditional student, but I feel like any other member of the class. In the past, it has not been a diverse group of students, but a new Director of Diversity is committed to improving the diversity of the student body, and my class (Class of 2017) is likely the most diverse the school has ever had, including African American, African, Asian, and LGBT students. We now have a thriving LGBT and allies club and the environment seems supportive and welcoming to all. All of our courses are taught by Ph.D.s and M.D.s, and we have excellent access to the faculty. The cost of living is low, and the city of Huntington is somewhat small but offers some good cultural and free time opportunities. Overall, the strength of the school is in its supportive staff (they are committed to helping each student to successfully graduate) and excellent clinical training and exposure. Residencies often report that our graduates are sought-after, solid members of their team. I would highly recommend my school.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: the area around campus is affordable to live in on a graduate stipend compared to other cities; the course is challenging without being too overwhelming, and the faculty are great about helping students in and out of the classroom setting and academics; it is also a smaller program so you can build networks with classmates and faculty. Cons: It is a smaller program.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros are the faculty and their support as well as the application of technology. The program is intrinsic and applicable to the needs of special education students The cons are that there are not as many on-campus opportunities for grad students to alleviate the financial load of paying for education.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2014

The programs are not competitive and the quality of work expected from students is very low. It is easy to receive high marks in classes because of the lack of competition. The use of technology is accommodating, and the school is willing to work with you to make things go smoothly.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

All pros from professor support to an enriched program for my field of study. The cons is that there are low scholarship opportunities for graduate students that is funded by my school.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the pros of my program are in the approachability of faculty, staff and students, the ease with which a person can catch on to the flow of things at the university and the kindness of the people in the area. The cons of my progam do lie in the inability for reaching people right away, the unclear situations with some of the finances that occurs, and the lack of public transportation.
