Student & Graduate Reviews

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

Great start for a new program. They are building upon their successes and ensuring that students have more opportunities in the future.
3.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Small classes are great, but a lot of group projects can be difficult to coordinate.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I have worked full time as a pediatric nurse for 20 years. The problem is that the state universities in my area do not offer a Master's degree in Pediatrics. I therefore had to apply to private schools which are extremely expensive. I desperately want to achieve my goal of becoming a Pediatric NP but am finding it very difficult financially to continue.
3.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Northeastern offers one of the best nursing programs in the country. The cons are: it is very expensive.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

My program is wonderful but a lot of the core classes have little to none to do with my concentration, though I have wonderful professors that help me through it. It is extremely affordable with financial aid compared to similar programs around the Boston area. I have made friends in my area and have had much support from teachers and staff.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2014

Perfect setting to expand knowledge base and get a great education.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

This pros of this program are that it is accelerated, highly competitive, has great clinical placements, a high NCLEX-RN pass rate, wonderful technology for the labs and helpful faculty. The cons are that it is expensive and not much financial aid is offered. No scholarships from this program are offered.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

The online program is convenient for the most part of working adults. More interaction with instructors in the online environment would be helpful.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros are many, from leaning new knowledge to practicing it in reality. So, it is not just learning it, we also Do it. The instructors are all patient and helpful in anytime. Besides, they replied and answered our questions immediately. We learn how to initiate a project, plan and execute it, and monitor it, also how to close a project. It is not limited in a certain field, but very broad. About cons, the scale of each class is a little big.
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

The program is great. The staff are so supportive. The only problem that I have is with student employment and also getting a works study is so hard even as a research assistant.
