Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Northeastern's program in higher education allowed me to gain the foundation needed to work at a University. The network that they have for internships and partnerships were key to my success within the program and after graduation

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

Graduate program allows me to work remotely from the campus which in real life situations is relevant due to work place environments today. However it does make it hard to be able to have that campus involvement of undergrad.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a third of the way through my graduate program with NEU, and so far the program has been great. The online program offered through the College of Professional Studies is incredibly flexible, and is a great option for someone who is interested in a graduate level degree while continuing to work full-time. Like any online program, it can be challenging to be fully engaged. However, every course incorporates discussion boards as a learning tool, which helps to keep you connected to both the professor and fellow students. I would highly recommend NEU's online masters programs as a great option for those looking to earn a higher level degree through a traditional school, but with the flexibility offered through online learning.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a great program because it prepares me to tailor my graduate work toward the type of job role that I would like to have. The cons of the program are very little if you ask me, only thing I have that has required that extra effort is buying my own textbooks and still they cost less than what my undergraduate books cost.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm in the Three Seas Program, best decision I ever made. Really hard work and expensive, but worth it!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

One pro of my program is the amazing faculty who teach the courses and lend themselves to investing in your success. One con of the program is the lack of financial aid for graduate students especially nursing students.

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program provides you with a mindset to enter the workforce that you would have not been able to engage in otherwise.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

This program, although it is competitive, is extremely well run. The faculty and staff are supportive and always available, and the classes are efficiently run and always of the highest quality. In addition, the university is located in close proximity to some of the best hospitals in the country. So all of the clinical placements that are available for students to participate in are extremely well done.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Northeastern University is a great school, not only by the quality of the teaching and curriculum, but also but their emphasis in ensuring every student graduate career ready. Their signature co-op experience is the best of it's kind. Their career service is one of the best rated. The graduate Education program I am in is one that blends theory and practice. And especially great is the learning format that is flexible, allowing adult learners like me the possibility of earning an advanced degree without sacrificing family/work commitment.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2015

Currently enrolled in the Plus One program for chemistry. I have just finished the undergraduate portion and will complete the graduate portion next year. However, as part of the program I have already had to take 16 credits of graduate level courses and have been working on research that will be a part of my Master's thesis. My particular program only applies to people who attended Northeastern as an undergraduate. The courses I have taken are some of the same that would be taken by students in the PhD program. I believe Northeastern has a great program and the classes are of high quality. I don't think you'll be disappointed in an education here and the school is very popular with many companies in the area.The biggest downside is probably living expenses (located in Boston so rent is expensive). If you are in the PhD program then tuition is covered. That is no the case for my program, however, and the cost of attendance is rather high.
