Student & Graduate Reviews

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: All classes covered for graduate students Close knit program Down to earth faculty Very social program Very supportive faculty Cheap living Cons: Tiny town No Target
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

It is great to be able to take half my classes online and half in the classroom. It is not a set class list for the graduate degree which provides flexibility to your specialty but not structured as I would like.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Vocational
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the best graduate programs at this school! Professors encourage student research and collaboration; this leads to many student publications prior to dissertation.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Very competitive program with regards to research and publishing current science.
1.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2015

While it is really great to be offered the opportunity to study Creative Writing at the graduate level, Oklahoma State University doesn't give the students enough financial support to offset the general dismal city of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Out of the creative writing faculty, there is only one full-time fiction writer (and she hasn't published a book in nearly a decade). I moved here with my wife with the belief that the academic fees each semester would be around $600, only to be hit with a $800 bill that will return every four months. The other students in the program are wonderful, but I could find a good community of writers virtually anywhere in the country.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Love the program, gotten more than what I expected so far.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The Higher Education Administration program at Oklahoma State University is on the rise as a source of well prepared students entering the administrative field. Although a smaller program, there is a great emphasis on the commitment towards each individual student as they are preparing in content and in real-life situations.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Oklahoma State has a rich tradition in a superior education program and is world renowned for my field of study. Their dedication to expanding their agriculture department and keeping their animal production units functional is what really drew me and kept me at this school. The faculty here is diverse and can serve you in your graduate career well. With expanding a department comes the struggle of maintaining funding and expanding faculty. In the next several years OSU will need to increase their faculty presence to keep themselves the leaders in Animal Science.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The only cons that I found in the program were in the initial application process. I found it hard to contact the necessary individuals to get the ball rolling on my application. After I was well on my way with the application process the faculty and staff were very attentive and very helpful. The program workload has proven difficult but not overwhelming and the instructors are very knowledgeable in their field. Overall the graduate program has been outstanding and I would highly recommend it over other schools I have attended.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Vocational
Graduation Year: 2016

Excellent professor/student rapport. Professional, experienced, concerned faculty. Many opportunities for students to research/publish before dissertation. Limited faculty count in department; difficult to reach sometimes.
