Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The Speech, Language, and Learning graduate program at Northwestern University is a whirlwind of amazing instruction and hands-on clinical work. I had to adjust to the fast pace that comes with a quarter system schedule, however this has pushed me to rise to the challenge of balancing intensive coursework with planning and executing therapy with actual clients. The knowledge and experience of the program faculty leaves me with no doubt that this program will fully prepare me to become a successful licensed speech language pathologist and have no problems finding the career of my dreams.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

The MS in Communications program at Northwestern is one of the best in the country. Students commute from other states on a weekly basis to be part of the program. This is a testament to the exceptional education provided. One has to be willing to put in the work to fully capitalize on this great opportunity.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The Master of Arts in Liberal Studies is a unique blend between a practice-based arts degree like an MFA and an academic-based degree like an MA Lit. Students have the freedom to choose their own combination of humanities classes to combine in an interdisciplinary focus. This program encourages students to analyze culture by exploring the fascinating connections between literature, art, music, theater, and other humanities.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program does a great job at providing internship information, but not enough is done for part time students who also work - no loan, scholarship, financial aid.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: wonderful people, amazing faculty, Chicago and all it has to offer, research facilities and library, collaborative environment Cons: my program is not diverse (no female faculty, no people of color), the graduate stipend does not go very far especially when you have to travel to conferences or job applications

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2016

Northwestern offers a great opportunity for any graduate students looking to continue working a full time job while studying. Between offering both recorded session videos and live web streams, the content is highly accessible, and can easily tailor to any student's busy schedule. Having office hours similar to an on-site program is extremely helpful and Northwestern's School of Professional Studies offers the student every opportunity to be successful, not only in the program, but after graduation as well.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Definitely one of the best MBA programs around - huge brand and a great establishment for learning. Tuition is steep however, and with a lack of financial aid, students will have to source for their own financing

The IMC program is so applicable to the things I do at work everyday. I truly enjoy going to class at night and find value in all of the courses I have taken so far. I highly recommend this program.
