Student & Graduate Reviews

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

I got a lot of teaching experience but felt that I did not learn much from the overall experience.

Michigan State University has one of the best music education graduate programs in the country, and after attending for a year, it is easy to see why. The faculty are on the forefront of music education, researching and writing about how to better the practice of music educators around the globe. They are passionate about furthering the field and providing graduate students opportunities to grow.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my grad program are that I am able to complete all of my work online while I am employed full time and that I get still get all the help I need form professors. So far, the only con of my program is that I was not able to start taking classes when I had planned, I had to wait a semester to start so that my classes would work.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I am attending the advanced standing program in Saginaw. So far the staff are not very helpful or organized. The clinical program I am enrolled in focus's more on macro, rather than clinical social work. Their belief is that you will get on the job training.

I'm attending MSU's advanced standing program at their Saginaw campus through SVSU. So far the staff isn't very helpful or organized, but the school has a very good reputation. The clinical program really focus's more on macro rather than clinical social work. Their belief is that you will get the training on the job.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

I'd attend this school again in a heartbeat. Wonderful education, and excellent faculty. As a big ten university, the cost can be quite hefty out of state, but doable for instate. I attended on campus undergrad, and virtual for graduate. Both experiences were excellent.
