Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The program's training emphasis on “the fundamental relationship between the social systems in which individuals are embedded” provides an exemplary research experience that addresses multiple intersections. To add, the dedication to diversity and level of community involvement at the local, state, and national levels is ideal. The department employs some of the top professors in the field and maintains a high level of academic rigor, resources, and overall student support. The work load can be difficult to manage at times. Professors have limited availability but are attentive to students when available.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros and cons very quiet a bit depending on who the students advisor is, so it is difficult to say globally. But in general, East Lansing is a really affordable place for graduate students and the State of Michigan has tons to offer. The quality of the psychology education at MSU is top-notch. This comes with having a tough workload, but is worth it.
