Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am an online student, so I can't rate some of the issues you are asking for. So the overall grade of the University is actually much better than shown.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: I can get my degree online. I live in Prescott, which is two hours from where the campus is located. Receiving a degree online has its perks. You can set your own schedule. The professors and department advisors are conscientious about promptly returning questions and emails. The site is well formatted and there are technology resources on campus. Cons: It is expensive. I know $1,200 is not a lot of graduate school, but it is still a lot of money. The website is difficult to navigate and sometimes is unavailable. Online classes are great, but it is difficult to network and establish connections through a computer. Overall though, I so far give this college great ratings.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2009

"This program is relatively new, but it is focused and we currently have a staff that is ready and willing to help any student looking for that help. The graduate program is based upon the student learning from themselves and in a lecture capacity as well. This hybrid is perfect for any student looking for employment opportunities after graduating."

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The best part of my program are mentors who will fight for you. I have also learned a great deal from the rigorous study and high expectations. The one major drawback is that our department is shrinking due to budgetary cuts. We are in desperate need of more tenure-track lines.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a good overall program. Teachers are concerned and involved. It is very affordable in comparison to other programs. The surrounding area of Flagstaff is a wonderful place to experience the outdoors (especially with Sedona and the Grand Canyon so close.)

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

This is an extremely affordable program from a school with an excellent reputation. However, the courses are not particularly challenging or relevant to the work environment. I'm about halfway through my program and have only truly benefited from two of my classes. Regardless, completing my program will give me a huge advantage in the planning field, and simply being enrolled has helped me obtain my first career position.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

NAU's Master's of Education: Secondary Education program prepared me for a career in teaching very well. The staff and professors were exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful. Through student teaching and the program, I was set up with employment immediately. If there were any cons, it would be that the program may be too accelerated for some students .

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Graduate school is crazy. The assignments are long and exhausting, but in the end it will be all worth it! The only problem is that it's EXTREMELY expensive!
