Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019

Advisors are your friends. They are there to help and guide you through the courses needed for your custom grad school experience. My professor helped me open my eyes to the careers awaiting me with a masters in entomology. I had the confidence in him because he gave the perception he knew what he was doing.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2012

MSU is a fantastic school. It is constantly improving and expanding the realm of knowledge. There are great professors who genuinely care about the students. The extra activities, such as music, sports, and greek life, are all top of the line! Plus, Starkville is a fun town that has a lot to offer. I would go back and do it all again in a heartbeat.

Degree: Psychology

I graduated with a Master of Science in Experimental Psychology. I couldn't have been happier with my choice. This degree coupled with my research experience diversified my skill set allowing for more job market versatility. The research experience and mentorship of the faculty is beyond compare.

It is a great school with a great atmosphere. The professors really want you to succeed. Without the awesome classes I would not be ready for the workforce. Our football team is amazing.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am very proud of, and enthusiastic about , Mississippi State University. It is a land grant institution located in my home state of Mississippi. We have a very diverse student body made up of many native Mississippians along with out-of-state students. The family atmosphere and welcoming environment truly make it the people's university of Mississippi. It is a research-oriented university that offers many opportunities to conduct research in a wide variety of areas and specializations.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of my graduate program are that It give me insight to the IT field which is the most emerging center and it helps me to get hands on various software's and programming language like SQL, PHP ,which helps me build up my skills very nicely . It helps me know new ways to develop different skills technical and management both. Faculties help me a lot and cooperate very nicely. Coming to Cons of the program I do not see any con for the program ,but sometimes I feel if I could get more hand on core programming like Java would be an incentive to me.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2018

Mississippi State has a great sociology department that is really blooming right now. If you are not okay with the rural atmosphere, the surrounding area might leave you feeling trapped. I actually appreciate the quiet off of campus. It is a great way to relax while reading or writing, and so this place really works for me. The program has high expectations, but the faculty help you. You cannot be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Faculty will sit down with you, give you ideas, or suggest resources or readings and that is really helpful. The cost of living is not bad, but off campus rent can be steep. I highly suggest giving yourself a nice budget for housing.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

The pro's of the program were that I was able to obtain a graduate assistantship that covered 75% of my tuition. The con was that many of the classes were online and only one online class was covered under my assistantship.
