Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

SFASU really prepare you to become a principal. Unlike other EDU Admin programs who completes their practicum hours within the last semester, SFASU includes 20 practicum hours within your first class. By the time you've completed your certification, you would have compiled at minimum of 200 practicum hours which is 100 hours compared to other programs. I will be well-prepared and am excited about the journey.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2015

With the Graduate school I really have no cons to speak of. So far my professors are amazing, the workload is not bad, and I am actually learning something all while being easier than my undergraduate studies.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty are both the pros and the cons. The professors and staff are great, but there are few of them so you constantly have the same professors for multiple classes.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2019

The grad program is a good deal. You can receive a M.E.D. degree in 3 semesters, online . The first class I have taken through Stephen F. Austin, was all over. We had 3 different web sites that we had to go to to look for my assignments. All students felt that they would miss an assignments, because we would have to search for them on the different web sites. I was not happy about having to go to the different sites.

Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2015

I am not living on campus so a lot of these do not apply to me but so far and especially at my age, I am getting my money's worth and enjoying every minute. The faculty in the music school has been extremely helpful during this whole process of enrolling back in school at my age. This degree will lead me to my goal of teaching Music Theory at the collegiate level. I cannot wait to begin. Without a doubt, SFASU is the best choice I could have made.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I enjoy that I am able to be in a graduate program that is 100% online. This way I can go to work full-time and not worry about getting a babysitter for my son. It is extremely flexible and convenient. The con is the workload for online classes and time management. The teachers are very understanding and do their best to make it as a face-to-face class with interactions with our online classmates. So far, the online courses have been great and extremely helpful for the career I am looking for.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2014

One of the best thing about the program is that it is entirely online and accessible from anywhere. This makes it both manageable and convenient. This is also a small downside because I prefer face-to-face communication and discussion. Because the program is online the workload is very extensive and requires several hours a day of studying.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel that the program I am in is one of the best social work programs in the country. The professors have worked in the field for many years and some are still getting more credentials. The school does not have many online classes but they are moving towards that in the next year or two. The professors are very knowledgeable about the subjects that they teach. Overall the program and professors are great!!!!!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The Master of Science in Athletic Training program at Stephen F. Austin State University is one of the very best programs in regards to preparing you for the Board of Certification (BOC) National Examination for Athletic Training, as well as preparing you for a successful career in Athletic Training. The classroom learning combined with clinical experiences received during this 2-year program contribute to the success of former graduates who are employed at the professional, collegiate, and high school settings. For the past 4 years this program has had a 100% pass rate on the first attempt of the BOC national examination. This program has also helped students land professional internships with the NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB, Professional Fastpitch Softball, and Disney's Wide World of Sports.
