Student & Graduate Reviews

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.

Degree: Psychology

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.

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.
2.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program is located in Boston, which has some of the best hospitals around. The school has set up some of the best clinical placements for its students, and I think the program is worth the money. The faculty seem genuinely interested in helping students!

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm enrolled in an online course of study and the convenience of the program is amazing. The only really con is the cost of the program, which is higher than most graduate programs I researched.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Good school, but much better for full time students. Administration seems to care more about their well being than the part time students who work during the day. That being said it is still a great MBA program and I would recommend it to most people looking for a good MBA degree program to get involved with.

NEU is competitive, challenging, and in a great area. Commuting is difficult because it is in the middle of Boston.
