Student & Graduate Reviews

4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Due to my emphasis, there was not much peer competition, however, the experiences I had around campus and with other students were very pleasant. The teachers are helpful in guiding you down the right path and are honest with their advice. The financial aid department is typically easy to work with and most of the administrative assistants know everything that is going on. There are lots of places to stay both near campus and on campus and the library is wonderful for studying. Part of my program was through VESTA, which supplied wonderful access to teachers around the country which gave great and different perspectives. The biggest downside of this program is that is so small, but I felt well equipped whenever I met students who are in a similar field from other schools.

Degree: Visual Communications
Graduation Year: 2012

Enjoyed my time at Missouri State University, but when I left for the real world I realized I didn't know half of what I needed to pursue a career in web design. Faculty are sweethearts though. They tried the best they could.

I feel that the education we are receiving is great. We are working on getting cacrep accredited which is awesome. Most of the staff are easily acceptable and willing to work with you, however,I feel some do pick favorites.

The satellite program is lacking staff support, facility resources and accessibility for students. The program seems promising, but there are many issues regarding the reliability of the program right now.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am part of the SEACT program at MSU, one of the benefits of the program is going from course to course with the same small group of students (there are less than 25 of us). The majority of us are already teaching, some are new teachers and others have years of experience, so we can discuss issues and techniques for teaching our special students. The experiences and relationships that I am developing will benefit me in the future. The only con for me is that I drive over 2 hours one way several times a week to attend class in the evening after working all day, but in the long run it will pay off.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

The effectiveness and availability of the professors are great. I like that my program advisor is always readily available to answer questions. He has guided me through each step of the program. A con would have to be the internship requirement. As a non traditional student it is difficult to do an internship while balancing school and home life.

Missouri State University has experienced top-level professors who care about your success in their program. The admissions process is streamlined and offers excellent service for working professionals. Unfortunately not all classes offer distance learning opportunities; however there is a clear commitment to academic integrity and transfer of knowledge required to prepare you for your chose field of study.

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2013

The Masters in Plant Science program is not a large one, but it has a view of the bigger picture when it comes to research in grape and wine production. This program has help and support from the influential school of agriculture, which is no small achievement. A fruit station campus, situated an hour from the main campus, is dedicated to the plant science program. Most of the students are able to receive a graduate assistantship so that this graduate program is also very affordable. One major drawback currently is the student diversity. A majority of the students are international, and all but one of the international students are from China. There are currently only 4 American students in the program. Overall, though, there aren't many cons.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I think that graduate school is a great phase in my educational life, being able to learn new things and apply them in life is very critical. I hope what I learn is going to be practical not just theory. One of the disadvantages of my graduate program is that I do not have an internship opportunity to practice what I learn.
