Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many positives in reaching any academic goal. The negatives might be attached to managing your time effectively

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of graduate school are being able to advance in a career. You are also given an opportunity to network more. The graduate program is intensified, so there is more of an opportunity to learn hands on. The only con of graduate school is financial aid. I had a very hard time finding programs that gave money to graduate students versus undergraduates.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros--academic rigor, affordability, and campus safety. One major con is the career support. If you don't already have a job going into a graduate program in education, this program does little to nothing to assist you with advancing in your career.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

It's great to have access to a variety of on-line offerings. When you need to go to campus, the NMSU main campus is beautiful and accessible.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2016

I really think this is going to be a great graduate program for me. I have already gotten to know most of the professors and I feel I will really thrive in this online environment.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

The faculty in the program is spectacular. However there is a lack of communication at times. Also financial aid at NMSU is a joke, it doesn't exist for graduate students.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I have enjoyed my experience of grad school at NMSU. I live six hours from the campus, being able to take my courses online has allowed me opportunities otherwise impossible. I would have missed the classroom experience, but my courses have had limited face to face meetings. I would definitely recommend New Mexico State University for graduate studies in education.

Degree: Special Education

Overall, my experience with the NMSU Education/ Special Education Graduate program has been very postive and rewarding. I would definately recommend this college (and I'm not from NM).
