Student & Graduate Reviews

2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I have just started out so some of the questions are not pertinent. However, I am greatly enjoying the faculty and potential opportunities in the future.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

With my program being online, I can work when I have the time as long as I get the assigned tasks completed before their due date which is a huge plus being employed full-time and having small children. The only con, is again to this being an online program, I do not have direct interaction with my fellow students. Online discussions are not the same as in-person interaction.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

Michigan State University offers a ton of resources and opportunities to their students to network and it is very easy to become involved. Although MSU does not offer much assistance with paying for college, they have great professors who care a lot about their students. The Speech-Language Pathology program offers a chance for students to complete internships and gain a lot of experience with working with a variety of individuals. The program consists of a diverse population of hardworking students and I know that my program will provide me with the resources I need to become a great speech pathologist.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

My Graduate Program involves a cohort of students which provides students to work together, and also involves a total of 4 internships throughout the program. This allows for a hands on experience which leads to a well rounded education, and I feel that it will prepare me for my future career. I feel very supported by the faculty, they are always available to meet outside of class if I have any questions or concerns. At MSU, I am receiving a wonderful education and could not be more satisfied with my choice of grad school.
2.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: -Great professors -supportive staff -small close knit community -the tuition is pretty affordable compared to other law schools -cost of living in East Lansing -plenty of shopping and places to eat Cons: - on campus parking is limited -some of the required courses are not required for the bar and I felt like my money was wasted -sometimes the internet is really slow, but that is only because so many people have their devices and cellphones on the network -small college town so if you're looking for entertainment (if you have the free time) you are limited bars filled with undergrads

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty and staff at Michigan State are far and beyond helpful, knowledgeable, and qualified. I love my school!
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

MSU's graduate program is world class and provides students with not only the business foundation needed to enter the working world, but also detailed specializations. They offer a diverse program for students to get acquainted with other cultures and offer a study abroad. Alumni connections offered through the career center are a key part of connected students with past Broad students who can provide support and mentoring.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The Animal Science graduate program at MSU is great in terms of faculty support, resources, and new opportunities. Depending on the department of enrollment, there are various travel funds, grants, assistanceships, and fellowships to help grad students get the most out of their professional education. Some of the most renowned faculty work here and everyone is always generous with their thoughts, ideas, time, and encouragement. Outside of classes and research, MSU provides plenty of opportunities to decompress. Be it free fitness programs, free concerts and entertainment, graduate student appreciation week, close dining and entertainment, rodeos and other agriculture events, and more!
1.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros of this graduate program is that you can lead your studies in what you want to focus on. There are so many different aspects of Public Health, that they do not limit your choices by picking out classes for you. There are only 6 core classes you need to take, and the rest of the electives are of your choosing. Cons of this graduate program is the lack of financial funding. Also, the counselors are very unhelpful when it comes to guiding you towards what should be your main focus
