Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

So far in the program I like the program because you can take so many different subjects of classes, ranging from human specific topics to comparative topics. Everything builds on your previous knowledge and then gives you even more and helps prepare you for either a job or further schooling.

So far no cons and the university has been very helpful in my transition from being an undergrad to a grad student at NCSU.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

I love the program at NCSU. If I could change anything, it would be to have more options for online classes, but I have enjoyed my classes on campus as well. The professors are top-notch and even though it is a large university, the professors are personable and have my best interests at heart.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

This graduate program, though newer, is one of the best programs that I looked into. It takes an entire masters program and pushed you to graduate in 10 months. This program is up to date and is part of one of the largest growing field - analytics. People with the skills that this program provides are hard to find, so the NCSU Analytics department now accepts 80 students for the year and creates 80 excellent analysts. The Harvard Business Review recently identified the Institute as one of only a few sources of talent with proven strengths in data science alongside Stanford, MIT, Berkeley, Harvard, and Carnegie Mellon. This is the nations first institute to offer an analytics degree.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2014

Individual instructors are supportive and accessible but their individual positions on the use and application of technology mires the whole program from fully implementing the available technologies.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2015

This program is great. The professors really care about the graduate students. The biggest downfall is that the first year of the program is not covered financially at all.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I love our graduate department; however, from a financial stand point it is a drain. I think our program is wonderful. They come from a social justice perspective and every teacher has worked in the field. In addition to this we have great networking, no other school in the state offers a list of internships to choose from. Many schools throw you to the wind and ask you to find your own. Their network is large and almost any area you can think of they know someone who can help. I love it.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Great for textile industry or academia. Good location with many apartments within walking distance. Coming from a larger city with much more active community made transition harder. Not bike-friendly at all, good grocery stores nearby but have to drive to.
