Student & Graduate Reviews

4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Pro: An online program that allows you to work full time and still complete the program in a timely manner without overloading the student with work. The program focuses on one class at a time and you complete them every 6-7 weeks. Con: The nearly completely online program does lack some of the face to face human interaction.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: very practical experience in varying areas of higher education, the GA/ practicum experiences are invaluable. Athens is also a very cool area. Cons: program administrators are NOT helpful and wish to do away with the practicum experiences, which are the biggest draw to the program. Very disorganized, students feel alienated and not valued to administrative faculty in the program.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

This is the best graduate program! It was so easy to sign up for graduate school and classes. The staff is so friendly and helpful. It was easy to sign up for financial aid as well. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything about the classes I have taken and the experience I've had!

4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

The Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-HCOM) is a program that produces proficient physicians into the healthcare industry. As one of the best Osteopathic programs in the nation OU-HCOM has many pros and even holds records. For example, OU-HCOM has the lowest student to cadaver ratio in the world guaranteeing its medical student, at most, four students to one cadaver. OU-HCOM also puts its medical program and medical campus in close proximity to the other undergrad and graduate programs offered at Ohio University which allows for a more social atmosphere and promotes healthy academic competition. OU-HCOM even educates us outside of the country offering medical studies abroad during the first summer at numerous locations including Kenya. In addition to the thorough education it is providing, Ohio University sits within a very safe campus and city that promotes social behavior among students. OU-HCOM holds very few cons, however it may not be the best place for an out of state applicant. The program focuses on producing the best primary care physicians interested in practicing in Ohio. For most of us this is a good thing, but if an out of state student does not want to practice medicine in Ohio it may be a con.

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Student diversity is high, faculty diversity is relatively high too; various English courses available for international students whose native language is not English; friendly local environment. Cos: Few scholarships available to 5th or 6th year PhD students.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2010

The social networking in our program was excellent - students got to know each other well and were able to easily work with one another. We also had some AMAZING teachers who went above and beyond to aid us in our process of becoming teachers. I felt the program in general prepared us for the Praxis Exams.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2015

Although I am very early stages of this graduate program at Ohio University, I feel that it will prove to be a worthwhile investment when I finally graduate. It will be another great resume building experience to add to my life.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The Speech-Language Pathology program at Ohio University is rather competitive in a way that makes you a better student and future professional. There are a few factors lacking at Ohio University that are beyond the control of the graduate program itself. Transportation is lacking and only limited for certain days of the week and times. Finding financial aid here is also another struggle. Like I said earlier, the SLP program is rather competitive, which also means so are the scholarships. Trying to attend Graduate School and trying to leave with as little debt as possible, is a struggle and the availability of scholarships here are sorely lacking.
