Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0

NC State has an excellent graduate program for social work. The courses are challenging and the professors are insightful. This degree will provide the skills necessary to engage in any area of social work and prepare you for a solid and rewarding career.

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2019

I have found NC State's M.A. Liberal Studies program to be the perfect fit for my life. I am interested in a career in Child Life, supporting hospitalized children. Unfortunately, there are no related degree programs in my immediate area, and relocation wasn't a realistic option for me. The MALS program allowed me to design my own degree plan which will include all of the relevant coursework of a traditional Child Life program, as well as some diverse additions (like Interpersonal Communication in Science/Tech Organizations and Professional Ethics & Family Policy) that will be applicable to me in a healthcare setting. I will also be able to receive academic credit (and essential real-world experience) by taking a supervised professional experience course. I can't say enough about NC State's MALS program. Not only has it provided the flexibility to pursue an advanced degree while working full time, but it has also helped me gain confidence in managing college-level coursework after being out of the classroom for almost ten years. Most importantly, it's helped me find my passion and chart a realistic path for getting there.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2008

NC State Computer Science program is pretty great. The graduates are also well sought after by major companies and the university is also close to the Research Triangle Park which is expanding with new companies. NC State's tuition is reasonable compared to some other universities. The professors are also great.
3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The teachers were excellent and worked with my unique circumstances. I was able to use material I learned in class right away in my daily work.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2012

I enjoyed the Public History program at NC State - the college is very large, but has a vibrant atmosphere. I lived off-campus as a graduate student, and so wasn't as involved in on-campus activities, but it was a friendly and interesting place to go to school.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2013

I am a 2013 graduate of North Carolina State University. I entered the workforce immediately after graduating. I am now at a positive transition in my career which has motivated me to pursue a Master in Legal Studies degree at Washington University in St. Louis School of Law. Furthering my education will allow me to progress and meet those long term goals I have set regarding my career and professional development. Taking a few years post-grad to network and grow professionally has enlightened me on what steps to take to succeed. I am currently entrenched in the civil legal services industry and I feel like I have found my niche. The Master of Legal Studies program will allow me to expand my legal knowledge and develop additional skills such as mediation and negotiation of contracts which are very important skills to obtain and have working in civil legal services. I am thrilled to start pursuing a greater me in the Fall at one of US News Best Law Schools!
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Sports Management
Graduation Year: 2018

NC State University is a stellar school. They have plenty of resources and everybody is very helpful. I am attending full time for my Masters in Parks, Recreation, Management & Tourism which I am planning to use, along with my Natural Resource Bacherlor's degree, to work for the National Park Service. Combined, I should be fully education and have plenty of experience to succeed in my career.
