Student & Graduate Reviews

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

You have access to a great source of research materials and laboratory. The university library opens 24 hours and students are able to work in a comfortable place in the library. Almost all the software you need you have access through university sites and also have access through off-campus services. The research in engineering depends on your interest and you can find some professors who work in your interested area.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: As a student of TSM I have a wider range of course selection than other engineering students; co-op adviser is nice and school has some alumni in the industry which helps me to get a coop Cons: It is hard to get a on campus research position in the college; the graduate office people are hard to communicate with, the program coordinator patricia dowd is not willing to help the students, I almost lost my coop opportunity due to her "at least five business days" to finish a signature.

This is my first semester in Graduate school with Northeastern. So far I really enjoy the courses, I've had to get accustomed to quarter systems as opposed to semester however the faculty are nice and welcoming especially for online courses!

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2018

Northeastern University was the first of 10 different graduate programs that took a chance on me. My undergraduate career was not as important to me until it came time to graduate. I am so very grateful to have had this opportunity to continue my education. The online program is awesome! It fits into my schedule as well as being user friendly. The availability of the professors and interactions with other students is unbelieveable. There has been no issues and I still feel like I am getting the best education possible. Parts of me wish I could be on a campus again, but for where I am at in my life, that is not possible. Northeastern University makes me feel welcome and at home even in the online community. I plan to get to Boston some day to visit the campus and possibly meet the people I connect with on a daily basis. Great school.

Great professors but lacking internships and networking. The graduate program is very expensive.

Wonderful Program! Very supportive/collaborative environment and intellectually challenging curriculum.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The program, in my opinion, is unmatched; however, the financial aid department surprised me with extra fees, with 1 week's notice. As a result, my mother and I had to figure out how to pay and if we even could afford it. Other than that, the quality of the program was amazing and certainly memorable!

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2015

For an Urban School, NEU does a lot of things really well. The staff has many great connections throughout the Boston Metro Area, and will help you to get involved in your field of interest when they can. The program is less rigorous than my Undergrad, and the content that they teach is important to understanding Urban Affairs, but can be repetitive, because they cannot assume the same background, and sometimes teach as if they are starting from scratch. Not every course of the required curriculum will be mind blowing but the ones where I experienced the most growth in understanding were well worth all the rest. The financial aid situation of most colleges in general is pretty awful, and there are definitely not enough grants to go around in this program. The Urban Affairs field is growing throughout the US, and the Public Policy and Urban Affairs school is relatively new and growing. Most of the learning that I found beneficial stemmed from both exceedingly well taught lectures by many of the professors as well as the class discussions, and I highly recommend pursuing this degree on campus if at all possible over the online classes.
