The school has cutting edge research programs, but the salary for graduate students is relatively low and sometimes, if you work as a TA, the workload is too much.

It depends on what you wants. Some programs are good, but some programs are not perfect.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: The Cancer Biology PhD program is very versatile and you are able to choose your minor in any health-related field. Faculty has very high expertise. If you are unsure about the research area, you can do even four lab rotations before officially joining a lab. Cons: There is not enough diversity, as there are not so many international students in this particular program. If you are latino/hispanic, sometimes you can feel like an outcast. Moreover, if you are planning to stay in Tucson after graduation, it will be hard to find a job. Most of the people move to Phoenix, as there are not so many science-related jobs in Tucson.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2017

Good program that may need a little work on student career guidance.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

The Department of Geosciences here at the U of A is one of the top-ranked programs in the country and in the world - for a reason! You'll work with some of the most knowledgeable and dedicated professors and scientists in the field here. Tucson is a very diverse place. The great weather and cheap rent will do the rest to make your time here a priceless one.
