Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
-
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Love this school! Many graduate assistantships available, so it is easier to be a student and graduate with minimal loans. Large enough school for great opportunities, but small graduate school which keeps class sizes low. Close drive to Grand Canyon and Sedona, and nestled underneath the mountains.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2010

The program targeted working adults is a pro and the expense of the program is a con.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

NAU's MA online program is highly rated by U.S. News and World Report. Integrity is maintained with a well constructed online program. Being offered online, it provides opportunity for those seeking to further their education who do not live in the area, or have work conflicts to attending traditional courses. The professors are very knowledgeable in their fields. This has been a wonderful and enriching experience.

Enjoyable experience. Difficult to reach faculty at times.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2015

This program seems to give students what they expect when they arrive. Though there are a few things about the general university that are sub-par (transportation services on a massive campus!) this department is great. They have faculty who care and want you to learn and succeed in the future. There is no PhD program to take away from your needs and as long as you realize what that means going in (not as many resources, but more funding and time for YOU), you're likely to succeed.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

The Clinical Speech-Language Pathology masters program at NAU offers practical learning experiences in a supportive environment. Research possibilities are also readily available. Most importantly, I feel at home in Flagstaff. It's a beautiful place with plenty of outdoor recreation and a great little downtown area.

Degree: Speech Pathology
Graduation Year: 2016

NAU's Speech Language Pathology program has excellent professors that inspire learning and leadership, and the department staff has been very helpful and welcoming. Living on campus in Flagstaff was the perfect setting for me, cooler climate and plenty of recreation. The summer program allows me to work full time during the school year. No cons.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate programs are very accessible, but the admissions process is long and important classes fill up before you can register.
