Student & Graduate Reviews

4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The program provides diverse exposure to issues with a heavy emphasis on cultural competence and advocacy. Faculty are supportive and active in the field.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

the classes and the professors are great, the workload keeps me studying all the time which makes me very much satisfied with the program as I feel I am learning a lot. though some assistance in the internships search or job search would be very helpful.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

The Math Education doctoral program is very rigorous and competitive. However, I feel the program could offer better financial aid (i.e. scholarships) to its students. All in all, it is a great program.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

I am a distance education student, and I believe NCSU's DE program is phenomenal! There are teachers who really care about the success of the students; however, they make it fairly difficult as well. The only con I can think of is the limited number of classes offered every semester. Hopefully this will change as the DE program continues to expand.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Great program for future leaders. A little costly.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The NCSU PRTM online master's program provides a great educational opportunity for professionals who aren't able to attend traditional classes or relocate near a school offering this or a similar degree. The admissions staff, program faculty and support staff are very helpful with ensuring that students are prepared to be successful in the online class environment. Despite being online, great relationships are formed with other students in the cohort. The connections and networking opportunities are very valuable. Teachers are accessible and knowledgeable about their fields and the situations that professionals face daily. Assignments are created to focus on real-life situations, making them enjoyable and educational at the same time. Another plus is the option to waive GRE testing with experience in the field. The program is very competitive and the degree is respected by other professionals.
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The professional interaction with others in education and various fields has been a benefit. Multiple perspectives that are brought to current issues has improved my ability to analyze educational problems and evaluate options. The cost of the program is prohibitive, and few financial resources appear to be available for PhD students.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2009

Great program for working individuals, most classes after 4:00, and workload is not too difficult. Traditional MPA program, nothing super spectacular. Very nice faculty, but a few are out of date with current technology and issues.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Vocational
Graduation Year: 2014

Great education, professors, experiences and opportunity for professional and personal growth.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

This graduate program is rigorous, yet accessible to anyone willing to put in the work. The faculty members are extremely accessible to students and are willing to assist students as needed. Programs are explicitly spelled out, but you still have some opportunity to choose courses that most interest you. NC State is a research institution, and in the curriculum and instruction graduate program great emphasis is placed on educational research as opposed to praxis. There are programs in the College of Education for those needing teaching licensure, such as the Master of Arts in Teaching, but C & I is not really focused on that component.
