The graduate program is overall well structured. The classes are focused although there is not as much diversity in topics as I would wish there to be.
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program in School Psychology is that it is a competitive program and gaining employment following graduation is an almost guarantee. The cons are the availability of the faculty and the lack of funds available to help with tuition and living expenses.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

This graduate program is rigorous and has wonderful staff. The surrounding area is lacking in the amount of things to do outside of school. Technology can be utilized more within the program and financial aid could be provided to more students.

3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2015

New Mexico State has a great Communication Disorders graduate program. The faculty is very supportive and do their best to help every student succeed. Las Cruces is a great city. It is small and therefore there is not much in the way of public transportation.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program is professional and rigorous. Professors and staff are knowledgeable, supportive and wish to see you succeed. There are plenty of opportunities to take online classes that are wonderful and meet quality online teaching standards. The only problem I had to deal with is financial aid not covering a certificate program, although degree programs are not an issue. Overall, by the time I graduate, I will have received two degrees from this university and feel confident my credentials will provide future employment.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

New Mexico State University does all it can to help their students succeed. Faculty and administrative staff are prompt and helpful in answering questions and concerns.
