Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program is very small and not on a direct career path (i.e. engineering or math education). However, the professors are great, the work load is competitive but doable, and the faculty is always happy to help direct you or offer guidance.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

It is very competitive and leaves students as experts in their field. However, it is also a program that is not always easy to find a job in unless the student is planning to proceed to another graduate program. My program is M.A. only, for instance, and I am considering getting a Ph.D.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2018

NC State has a very strong academic program in adult and higher education. The advising is top notch and the community within this program is exceptional. I have learned so much from the diverse experiences of my colleagues in class.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

I think it is a great program and way above average for the value.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

Cost of living is quite a con, but that has nothing to do per se with going to North Carolina State University.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

I feel that the ID program could be a little more fun and innovative with projects.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Very affordable. Not the most competitive or rigorous, but there are some good professors who have taught me some valuable lessons. Mostly, I love Raleigh and the price tag!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The Pros of the NC State University MBA program are the level of courses and the network that is provided to graduate students for job resources. The cons are the amount of tuition and associated costs for the MBA program.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm pursue a PhD in Science Education program. The quality of the professors and the resources are excellent. About the profile of the University the diversity you can find on campus is awesome, you meet people from different countries, and NCSU gives to all of them a space to express their culture through Students Involvement. There are thousands of students organizations on campus, local and international. The cons about the program is the amount of credits needed in courses, you have almost 3 to 4 years of courses plus a minor and major exam, and the dissertation.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Our graduate program has very approachable faculty that are also very knowledgeable in their subject fields. We offer a variety of classes, many of which are not offered at other universities. We also have a nice research lab that is one of the best in the nation. However, financial aid is difficult to attain, especially in the civil engineering department.
