Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program at MNSU is very well organized. Every one of the professors shows sincere interest in the well being of the graduate students. Each professor will go out of their way and make time in their busy schedule to assist a graduate student at any time. The greatest negative aspect of the graduate program at MNSU is the funding available for thesis research. In order to pay for tuition, a teaching assistantship needs to be obtained. This takes up the majority of the time that would generally be used for working on thesis research. If funding was available, students would not have to spend time on teaching and can focus on their thesis.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The program provides the ability to continue education within a subject matter that applies to you, rather than trying to make yourself apply to it. Faculty emit the same ideas we learn, and students fit the mold as well.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: the professors and staff alike care about you. They want you to succeed and they will give you the necessary tools to succeed. The professors work closely with the community creating beneficial connections and relationships for your future. The courses relate to the job in which you are pursuing. The professors give you examples of experiences to relate to your field as well as provide you with the experiences necessary to succeed. Courses are offered as online for those with transportation constraints. Cons: the school is small and offers a minimum amount of sections for classes. However, the teacher student ratio makes up for this flaw.

Minnesota State University- Mankato has professors that are care about their students. The campus is a very friendly environment. Being in Minnesota it is cold and parking for the campus at times can be a struggle. Overall, great school and campus.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

I chose this program because I was looking for intensive studies in technical communications. The program gives students a lot of options within the discipline to learn the exact tools they hope to use in the future. The professors are very helpful, especially when you're trying to decide how to best attain your personal goals. Most of the classes focus on discussion and debate rather than assignments and tests, which really helps students to think critically about the topics but also connect with peers. I don't feel that this program has very many negatives, but if I had to choose one, it would be there isn't much support for students to finish the program in less than 2 years.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The professors in this program are extremely encouraging to all their students and actually want you to learn the information. It might mean having a lot of homework and reading to do, but it's completely worth it when you remember the material later on in your schooling.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2013

The MNSU Technical Communication graduate program is outstanding. The professors are professional, available subject matter experts. The online degree program is well-organized. The workload is excessive, but it is, after all, a graduate program.
