Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

As I progress in my job responsibilities, completion of a Masters level program that is specific to my field is very beneficial. There are not many programs to choose from and I feel that the one at NEU is exceptional. I have had the pleasure to work with many esteemed faculty and in 3 quarters have gained so much from this particular program. I hope that my evaluation of the program is recalculated because I had to leave several areas blank. The only reason for leaving these blank is that I am a 100% online student so I am not able to respond to survey questions that specifically deal with on campus topics. One con of this program is the lack of availability of core RT courses during the summer months. Other than this I have been very pleased with the program overall.

Northeastern's grad program was fantastic. Being one of the first few classes to graduate, it was well organized and adapted to the ever-changing needs of the students.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2020

Pros: I was able to take classes online while working full time. Unfortunately I do not live in the surrounding area of the campus. This program will help me further my career. Cons: Being as it is all online, I have to rely on email communication and the internet connection. Since I do not have regular class hours, I have to really stay on top of my studies and have self discipline.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

As an adult learner, and a mother of five, I needed a university with a research program that would allow me to achieve my educational goals with the flexibility of an online graduate program. Best of all, I feel that I am a good role model for children when we work in the evenings together on our homework.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending classes online is great for a full-time working professional like myself. Although we have to read materials, post, and respond to classmates by particular deadlines, there is no actual time spend in class, which is critical to maintaining work-life balance. The program is also relatively affordable in terms of other graduate programs that I am aware of, and does not require a study abroad program for my concentration, which is Global Studies, which also makes it more affordable.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Northeastern University is a great institution so after completing undergrad there was no question as to where I should apply to further my education. Northeastern provides access to wonderful resources with a beautiful campus. But like my undergrad career, I find that not all advisors are really there to help. It understandable that they do have a great deal of work set out for them; and an cast amount of students to look after. But many times it is hard to get that personable interaction from many of these faculty members.

Degree: School Psychology

This graduate program is competitive to get in to but really has a collaborative feel once you are enrolled in it. Other students are supportive and professors are willing to help you reach your goals.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros are that having a higher level of education will help me complete in my career field and help me to grow in to better opportunities. The cons are that some of the required classes are only there so the university can collect more money and have nothing at all to do with the program. Some of the teachers assign outdated work that is no longer doable on newer software.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Northeastern is not only a wonderful school with great programs ,but there is also a great community with individuals who are willing to help you if possible. I've always known that I would want to obtain my MPA degree and I received my bachelors, but I had no idea how expensive it would be to obtain a degree which is the only con. Northeastern is located in the heart of Boston. There is so much diversity on campus and so many people to meet. I would recommend Northeastern to anyone.
