Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that the greatest pros are: the graduate faculty and professors sincerely want to see us succeed and make as much effort as their time allows to guide us toward success. The student body here are all generally pretty friendly and the campus and surrounding areas are very safe. College station and Bryan are still pretty country, but the spirit here is peaceful and laid back. The only con is the sheer amount of course load and information that is required to study here and their stipulations to graduate from the program and to remain in the program is pretty stringent. However, I feel those stipulations only makes me study harder and have a much greater desire to succeed.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2013

The faculty are very knowledgeable, easily accessible and open for discussion. Their are numerous opportunities for international study and research. The Wildlife and Fisheries Science department also prides itself on interdisciplinary research and discussion. This is crucial for anyone looking for real-world skills in environmental science. The immediate location is lacking in entertainment and diversity, however, you are within 2 hours of Austin and Houston. Both of which offer lots of opportunities.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel the pros are many: great and laid-back environment and the student population are generally laid back and easy to get along with. I also found the faculty to be helpful and truly want to see their students succeed, at least in the graduate program. Texas A&M is also a great academic school with a great reputation, and the living expenses tend to be pretty reasonable. I feel honored to be attending the masters program at Texas A&M.

The surrounding are has limited activities. The school itself has many extracurricular activities. Within the Wildlife and Fisheries Science department, there is a lot of support, opportunities to challenge yourself, chances for socialization and making connections.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

Geology and Geophysics offers a wide range of programs. The professors are helpful and support the students paths mentoring in different ways. The classes cover a variety of techniques concepts and knowledge. The student body exchanges ideas openly. The department supports faculty and equipment that helps on almost every side of a graduate career. The major problem is funding - there's a lack of it.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The reason I chose to attend Texas A&M for my Master's degree was because I knew it was going to be a challenging program. I knew how much my professors would care about me and my success, because they did so when I was an undergraduate student. While in graduate school, my professors have been very informative, making great use of technology, such as movies and digital storyboard projects. The biggest drawback of the program is that I am not able to be in a classroom setting, since I am a few hundred miles from the university. Although my professors have always been very timely when replying to emails or providing feedback, it would be nice to be able to have a sit-down conversation, especially if I needed to ask questions.

Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2013

This is a high quality program with great professors. I enjoy the social party and student organizations like INFORMS-SC, pizzas every friday and coffee hour every monday to meet invited speakers. Especially the most beautiful building-ETB provides us a bright and comfortable place to study.
