Pros: number of distance learning opportunities.

I am doing an online program, which is great for someone like me working full-time, but can lead you to feel a bit detached from the educational environment. All in all, though, I am happy with the faculty and course content, and am learning a lot!

I did not feel as though the majority of my instructors were invested in providing quality education. If you want an easy graduate program, this is the one for you. But, if you want to be challenged and furthered in your field, if you want to engage in the lectures, and feel connected to the campus community- look elsewhere.

The Anthropology graduate program is really good. The faculty is very supportive. The school itself is good but it is more undergraduate focused since our grad population is not that big. There is no graduate housing so if you live in campus you have to live with undergrads. Parking is terrible and the food is like any other college campus, okay but not great. Flagstaff is a nice town if you like the small town feeling. There are lots of bars and good places to eat. Flagstaff is also very bike friendly, but because it is an "International Dark City" you need to be careful at night. Overall NAU has been a great graduate school.
