NDSU is where I did my undergraduate degree as well and when I was looking for graduate programs I looked no further than NDSU. The faculty is amazing, with structured classes guaranteed to make you think and learn. The students are motivated and friendly and will prove to keep you motivated throughout your education career. I have loved the years I spent on this campus. I recommend NDSU to everyone.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

North Dakota State University is a great school to pursue a Master's Degree for Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My program has taught me a lot about myself and my professionalism as a counselor in training. I am very excited to be a counselor and work with individuals who are in crisis. My goal is to work with the human trafficking population and help counselors receive the adequate training they need to work with the cliental.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The student to faculty ratio is low at about 1 faculty for every 15 students which is very helpful in a program like Architecture. The program is also very challenging and offers many opportunities to explore and further your own creativity independently. Cons: Some Professors may try to steamroll your projects and forget that they are they for guidance and learning and not to take over your own designs. It is a 5 year masters program that is accelerated. The workload is extremely tough and you will not have a lot of time for anything else. However, because of that, the program is more affordable and does not take as much time a traditional masters degree.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Research groups here are small that allow you to be connected with your advisor on a daily basis. Although, Engineering courses are easy but physics courses are really hard. In general, professors here are more concerned about research and grants than teaching and that is not something good for education.
4.5 out of 5.0

This is a very challenge program hope I can finish it in time. You need to work very hard.

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2012

The Department of Plant Sciences proved to be a remarkable place to work and study as a graduate student. The faculty genuinely care about each and every student, the facilities are well kept and up to date, and the programming is top notch. The faculty encourages students to take a wide range of courses to become more well rounded individuals and to prepare them for their careers. My graduate advisor was exceptional, she challenged me, encouraged me, and congratulated me as I completed my degree. I would recommend students to pursue their Master's degree at NDSU, because the entire program will prepare them to meet the demands of the future.
