This program was set up to allow me to continue working at my job that i love while improving my skills and positioning me for a promotion and raise. The faculty were all experts in their field and through the speaker series we were offered access to high level professionals.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

I was accepted into the OPEN-NJ scholarship program which is available to students looking to study pharmaceutical biochemistry and chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry. The faculty are great at teaching the courses and seek improvement at any opportunity.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Montclair State University is under appreciated for the support it has for its students and staff. This university will work with you rather than just counting you as another student, or a number. It will have you ready for what's to be expected out there. MSU will be your back bone through the tough journey ahead of you. I've begun my Masters in Computer Science specializing in IT allowing my courses to guide me through my job and helping me understand the reason to why I use some methods rather than others. MSU has pushed me for real life expectations rather than teaching me the basics of everything, and I appreciate the extra push.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

I completed my undergraduate degree at Montclair. In fact, Montclair wasn't my first choice but it was literally my only option. When I decided to pursue my Masters and saw the executive MBA Montclair offered, I immediately applied. That was one of the best choices I made. My cohort is filled with individuals from varying backgrounds, who possess great experiences and hold great careers. The professors teach great content and seem to really care about our successful completion of this program. I don't feel like I am just another source of income to them. I am really enjoying my time at Montclair. Though it is great there are a few things I dislike. Parking! On a cold blistering day, walking up a flight of stairs and a hill is beyond torturous. They should've given us parking badges to park in the parking deck. I also feel for the amount of money that we're paying, books should be provided. Books are expensive!

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2019

Montclair State University in Montclair, NJ is a really good school. They have great majors to choose from as well as great instructors. I enjoy attending, as a first year grad student, majoring in Music Pedagogy. The school is centrally located and has lots of things to do and places to eat on campus.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2000

Montclair State University was a great experience for me, that is why I am choosing to do my Graduate studies there as well. Without my education it would not be possible for me to be where I am in my career. The school has great teachers, classes and can provide invaluable experiences.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program at Montclair State University is composed of professors from different scientific backgrounds. They are always up to help students figure out what their thesis will be as long as the student is passionate about their work. However, a con of the graduate program would be that they do not offer much when it comes to student aid. For students that can thrive at this school and become one of the best in their field are more then likely hinder by their financial burden.
