Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The MSW program at New Mexico State University is a great program. Professors are very supportive and accessible. The work required for the program can be overwhelming at times especially for those who have full time jobs. However, NMSU offers part time, full time and advanced standing programs to cater to students needs. Academically speaking, NMSU has very distinguished faculty, and the quality of instruction you get here, is comparable to neighboring universities.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

PROS: Great faculty members who are always available. Small classroom leads to great 1 on 1 interactions. All very knowledgable in their fields. Affordable compared to other programs with no loss of education. Can compete with the other graduate programs out there. Program tailored for sitting for the CPA in most states including Texas. CONS: Only three of the big four actively recruit here and two of them only recruit for specific offices. Lacks the same namepower as other schools.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

I am entirely pleased with my graduate program. I cannot see myself anywhere else for my master's program. The classes are small so there is a great deal of student camaraderie and our professors are very involved in not only our academics within the class but our professional life as well. I have recommended this program to anyone in my area who is going into education.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

New Mexico State University is an amazing school. The staff is very friendly and helpful all the time. The professors are very knowledgable and know their craft. However, this past semester the I had an audiologist professor who was very unpleasant and rude. Her course work was overwhelming because she didn't explain enough of how to do the assignment.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program at NMSU in Education is easy to get into. Classes are a maximum of 20 people, making it easier to get in contact with the professor. NMSU Campus is gorgeous. Plenty of places to stretch out on the grass in the shade or the sun.

Degree: Marketing

The pros: A dedicated faculty with experience and willing to develop students abilities. The cons: Communication of formal activities and requirements needs improvement, because even after being accepted some things are not very clear.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

New Mexico State University offers an amazing learning experience and environment to push your education but only if you are willing to reach out and be proactive in your own learning. The education college is generally supportive and helpful but faculty is not very diverse. Research experience is always available. Overall, The university is a great place to enhance your own learning experience but you have to actively look for social events, diverse faculty, and push for change.
