Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The instructors and professors in this program have been amazing! However, the administration and financial aid offices do have downfalls, which is only burdensome if you have an issue.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is readily accessible through the internet, which is remarkably helpful for an active duty military member. That being said, the lack of direct contact with professors is frustrating at times. The workload is tough, depending on the class I'm taking, but overall I would say it's challenging enough to encourage understanding of the subject material, without discouraging continuing on in my program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

The biggest pro for the graduate program is the quality of education you receive for the price. The entire MBA program costs just over $10,000 and the quality of education you receive for that price is quite superior.

The faculty are very supportive and knowledgeable.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that the program is awesome. The only downfall is that the Albuquerque campus is removed from the main campus and makes dealing with the offices on main campus (library and Financial Aid) a little bit difficult. Professors are awesome. It is a fairly intense program and a great deal of work, but well worth it.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I am so pleased to have the opportunity to work with and learn from such amazing faculty. They have provided such great instruction and expertise; I have grown so much in the time that I have worked with them. They have been great in helping me learn how to apply theory into real-world, working situations. They have been supportive and helped me in developing my confidence as a leader and a Higher Education professional.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

It is actually a satelite program. It makes access to main campus convenieces a little bit harder. It is by far the best social work programs in the area

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

The Pro's of the MSW graduate program include the ability to work closely with groups and learn from one another. Also, having the opportunity to work out in the community and get experience first hand. The con's include having long requirements when it comes to internships. Many students have full time jobs in which it makes it difficult to do two full days of interning each week.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program has great instructors who, in my experience are always willing to help and answer questions. The program has a moderate amount of work and field experiences, but mainly is variant among professors. In my experience it has been a bit difficult to schedule meetings with advisors and to receive their support.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am so happy to have had the opportunity to pursue the EMD program through NMSU. The online delivery has helped with my busy work load and family responsibilities. The instructors have always been incredibly supportive while still be challenging and helping me grow as a student and a professional. I have built a strong network of colleagues in each of my courses, each with a diverse background and refreshing perspective. I have been able to incorporate everything I have learned to my current position, and this has helped me grown and develop within my institution.
