Student & Graduate Reviews

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.

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.

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.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program includes a lot of classes that are not necessarily relevant to my career. I would like it if there were electives in my program instead of being forced to take the same classes my entire graduate career. I have had both great and horrible teachers. They've all been great people, but one of them in particular was not good at teaching at all. This is my first year at this school so my attitude could improve, but I feel like less of a part of the student body and more of a way for the school to drain me of money. There are also not enough scholarships and grants available for graduate students. My parents are not helping and I have to pay completely through loans that I will spend over a decade paying off.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

PRO: Northeastern is a large university but the Nursing program feels like a small family! CON: The price
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

As an online student, a lot of on campus activities I could not grade accurately and have rated as 5 stars.
