It is a great college with an amazing faculty that care about their students. With the program as with most things in life you get what you are willing to put in to it.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2011

I loved that most of the professors genuinely cared about my education and we're personable. They understood that most of us had full time jobs and were taking classes after a long day at work.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

A graduate program can be very challenging in terms of the learning content and syllabus. But if managed properly, one can excel and fair really well. Aim for the moon and if you miss it, you will still be among the stars. :)

Degree: Veterinary Technician
Graduation Year: 2015

Murray State University's Master's of Agriculture program is very good. You have access to many, very knowledgeable professors to aid in the planning and execution of your research and writing your thesis. The Writing Center and Communications Center are also available to help with preparing your thesis and defense. The staff of the College of Agriculture is friendly and helpful, but the usual University bureaucracy can mean can lead to moments of frustration when dealing with enrollment and financial aid.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

My program, Human Development and Leadership, has great professors who know their craft well and are dedicated to making sure students are prepared for a career of professionalism. I appreciate this program because it has a specific focus yet it is still broad enough to be applied in many fields of work. I feel very safe in the small town of Murray, KY. The housing is decent and there are a lot of options to live close to campus without having to live in the dorms. Housing can get expensive and most places don't include utilities with rent. Also, students who graduate in December may have a hard time finding a 6-month lease or month-to-month lease since most housing requires a one-year lease. I don't think financial aid support is that great. From my experience, it's not likely to receive scholarships and this is coming from a straight A student. There is a large population of international students which has enriched my experience a lot. I've interacted with students from Saudi Arabia, China, Germany, etc. It's priceless to be able to learn about other cultures up close and personal. My overall experience here has been very valuable.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The Speech-Language Pathology program at MSU is a solid program with a good mix of strong academics, professional opportunities, and faculty support. The program is rigorous and can be tough at times. On the other hand, MSU does not necessarily have a lot of financial aid allotted for graduate students, and some students have found the area surrounding Murray to be lacking for social activities (my classmates go to Paducah or Nashville).
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty and staff in the College of Education and particularly the School Psychology department are very accessible and very hands-on as far as making sure that every student has what they need and succeeds. It is a very comfortable environment and help is always available if needed. The coursework can be somewhat difficult, but there is an incredible amount of support available to help. I have enjoyed the program!
