Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: The faculty are nice. I enjoy studying here. Cons: It is in a small town, so there is not very much entertainment here.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Professors really motivate us to learn deeper into our area of interest. Projects are always assigned to find solutions to real-world issues. Library is fantastic.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: full stipend, close knit community, mostly accessible professors, wide variety of research opportunities. Cons: Professors rely heavily on grants, so unfortunately much of the time teaching comes second to research (not a 'teaching' university). The grad program can be longer than expected, standards for what constitutes a "thesis", or enough data for a thesis, are not clear.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2013

SPPA is a great program with an excellent in-state network, and enough DC connections for the ambitious student to use to their advantage. The program has been going through some major transitions due to changes in the larger University administration and to SPPA faculty changes, but engaged faculty, staff and students are actively working to clearly define the school's identity.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The atmosphere of the program is that of diligence and perseverance. There is a high standard to be met and if pursued the rewards are plentiful.

Degree: Liberal Studies

Good quality science goes on here. Like any University not all Professors have enough funding, but what I like about UD is that they will fund their Masters students. Newark is fun, but it isn't a city. I great biology masters program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2117

Pros:The psychology department is very supportive of their graduate students in a relaxed yet productive environment. There is a lot of weight placed on collaboration versus competition between labs and disciplines. They are hiring 10 new faculty members with a focus on neuroscience. Cons: My area has very few women graduate students in it. The most advanced neuroimaging techniques available are EEG or TMS. Pro/Con: Not a lot of pressure to be meeting your goals or producing publications, you need to be self-motivated.

UD Biological sciences is a nice grad program in that the students are a pretty close-knit, friendly group of people. Many of the professors are extremely helpful in offering guidance for future schooling/career advice. Parking is extremely annoying at UDel, as you need an expensive permit to park pretty much anywhere on campus. Like many grad programs, there isn't a real set date for you to graduate, so many people slip through the cracks and don't get their degree anywhere near the 'expected graduation' date. A lot hinges on the subjective evaluation of your commitee and whether they decide you are 'ready'.
