Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, seems to be a great program, with connections for post-graduation employment. The area is one in which owning a car is almost a must. Instructors work hard to ensure the quality of the education is maintained for as little out-of-pocket cost to the student as possible.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

My adviser is most helpful in helping guide me to reach my goal. There is a fair number of online and night courses to help the non-traditional student complete their graduate degree.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The pro is that the teachers are active in their field and that they know what they are teaching first hand. The teachers are supportive and are there for the students outside the class for extra help. The con is that career fair wise is limited to certain majors. Also there should be more financial aid for graduate students.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Pro: One of few schools in TN that have a faculty that support what I want to concentrate on. Faculty is very supportive and available to help the students and they stay active in their field. Con: I feel that the job fairs don't reach to all the degree programs that the school offers. There are not many scholarships offered in the Psychology department.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

I already had a master's degree from another school when I began working on teacher certification classes through MTSU and the Regent's Online Degree Program. I had a horrible experience trying to communicate with the office of teacher licensure to figure out what the program consisted of and how to apply. MTSU's website also failed to be helpful. On a much more positive note, I have been extremely impressed with the dean of graduate students who is on top of things and very willing to help navigate the general crazy that is MTSU, so it may just depend on your department.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

Program is challenging and well structure with Professors who have industry experienced. I currently work full time and attend school full time and appreciate the flexible class schedules. I reccomend MTSU to everyone!
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are definitely the faculty and the location. The faculty is full of knowledgeable professors who care about their students success. The location is in a growing area with plenty of life and places to live surrounding the school. The only real con is the parking!

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2011

MT offered a fantastic masters program in Higher Education. The faculty was competent and passionate, and were eager to help the students become better teachers. Class sizes were small and effective, and the campus was easy to navigate. I highly recommend choosing MTSU for grad school!!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

I am pursuing a Doctoral degree in Health and Human performance. My department is comprised of highly motivated, intelligent and helpful faculty and students. The program could be more structured but overall it is an awesome program.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of the program definitely rest in the commitment and intellect of the professors. On the other hand, the program is still relatively new which unfortunately leaves a lot of room for the department head to make changes (while already being hard to get hold of) and be unsure of details themself.
