Student & Graduate Reviews

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.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Online Masters Program in Parks, Recreation, Tourism, and Sports Management at North Carolina State University Having online graduate programs for working professionals is the wave of the future. North Carolina State University is a prime example of a University who has taken an online program and made it more personable. With weekly meetings students and professors alike have the opportunity to verbally communicate. This allows students to get to know each other and have answers directly answered by the professors. Despite everyone being miles away, a real sense of community is formed. Academics have been incredibly impressive, challenging me and getting me to think outside of the box. I could not be happier about my graduate school program chance.

I value the educators. They are there to assist you in moving forward within your studies. However, there can be more programs that support the graduate students.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

I think it's a solid program with great resources to help produce valuable candidates to the work force. That said, courses and faculty should be expanded. The specific program is interdisciplinary and doesn't facilitate a marine, earth, and atmospheric sciences degree as much as it does one of the three. Therefore, there either needs to be a push for more crossover or for three solid disciplines within the program. As it is now, I would say the program is well above average and these comments are meant to take it to the next level.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty are accessible and they are very encouraging. There are not many cons to the program at all. The only thing is within the state it is highly unlikely to get a paid internship. It is difficult to find financial aid as a graduate student in this program. Majority of the funds go to the PhD students. Overall the program is great.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Comptency exams are required and the program could do a better job at promoting diversity. However, the program is excellent when it comes to matching students with internships and mentors related to field of interest.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The school is a great value, as it has the lowest tuition of any vet school in the country and is ranked in the top 5.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The program includes many important courses to produce better teachers for North Carolina. Most importantly the Diversity course and Young Adult Literature course give students unique perspectives that are imperative for making them more effective teachers. Con is that the guidance provided is not the strongest, you really have to be your own advocate.
