Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Michigan State University College of Law is a great program. The school has a fantastic Dean who is pushing the school to new heights. The faculty is great with a number of experts in particular areas of law. It is a fantastic school and the value of my education has increased every year I have been there.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The MSW program at Michigan State University has provided me with many quality opportunities. The social work office caters to each individual to provide them with a relevant internship that relates to their interests. My internship’s, or field placements, have provided me with immeasurable hands on experiences. Faculty and staff are always willing to help and provide assistance. The only drawback to the program is there scholarships through the department are pretty specific to certain criteria. Overall it has been a life changing program and it has been influential in my professional development.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I love my online program, but it is definitely challenging, especially when working full-time. It was unforeseen how challenging it is, but if it were easy, everyone would be doing it. I will super proud, grateful, and relieved when I graduate.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

There are unlimited options as a law student and many opportunities to thrive in different areas of law. The main cons are the costs of living and the overall burdens of having to live off loans. I can't express how grateful I would be to find some assistance for this.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Michigan State offers a competitive, yet friendly program. The faculty and staff really want students to succeed and are willing to go out of their way to make you the best possible physician. The East Lansing campus is very large, which allows for many different things to do around campus and provides a large diversity of students. While the campus is big, the doctoral classes are all in one small area, so you never feel lost. The school really becomes your family and I wouldn't have chosen another school looking back on my choices!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Great educational and working environment within the veterinary hospital. All of the clinicians and staff were very open and knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful and is kept very clean. The surrounding area around the campus is very nice and there are a lot of activities to do and easy access to everything. The area surrounding it is also very dog friendly! Everyone working on campus always smiled and said hello! Cons: Parking on campus is very expensive. Having more computers in the hospital would make a students life easiter. Vet star was not a fun program to work with.

Pros: The law faculty make themselves available to the students and are heavily invested in the success of the students. Tracking down a professor during office hours is never a problem. Cons: The law school is an up and comer, but it still has a ways to go.

Degree: Public Policy

The MPP program is very comprehensive, has interesting and diverse instructors, and is fairly flexible for those who work full-time. MSU is a great community.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

As an aspiring public health student, the program offers a chance to explore the field. Most of the coursework for this particular major is on-line, making it easy to work while studying. On the other hand, the program is not yet accredited.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The best aspects of the master's degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology at Michigan State University is that the program is online, which allows me to work full-time and gives me flexibility. The program has the rigor that a Michigan State program has, and has prepared me well for admission into pharmacy school. The cons of the program are that technical outages occur from time-to-time, giving me mini panic attacks while taking tests!
