Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

Having completed my undergraduate at UGA as well, I knew I was in good hands enrolling in the graduate school. The first year experience has been a whirlwind, but I look back and see how far I have come in a short 10 months. The faculty and programs have exposed me to a wide breadth of knowledge while challenging me to tackle scientific problems on my own. The competitiveness in program really pushes me to strive for success and the peer and faculty support has helped me become a better person and researcher!

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are that I learn meaningful content and apply what I learn to my profession. As a result of nearly completing my graduate program, I have been allowed to be promoted in my job based on the prestige of the program. The only con of my graduate program is the workload. Working a full time job in addition taking classes has been draining on myself and family.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I am looking forward to beginning my graduate journey at the University of Georgia. I love the cohort model that my program creates. The group effort will allow our class to encourage and support each other through any challenges we may face during our time in the program, and create a network for future use. The program is ranked second in the nation, the faculty members are fabulous, and the program will fully prepare me for a career in school counseling.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is great for anyone looking for knowledge in diversity. The faculty is great at helping with anything you need. If they don't know they will go out of their way to find out for you. However, many of the graduate programs are a cohort model. some may like this and benefit from it. In addition, you find out after you are in the program unexpected extra expenses.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2019

I am a fairly new student to the Science Education program at UGA but so far I have had a very pleasant experience. I have awesome professors who are recognized as authorities in the field of Science Education and I am looking forward to completing my PhD at an outstanding university.

Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program is a stellar, top-ranked one. I receive immense support from faculty on personal and academic endeavors. The program fosters academic competitiveness but everyone is friendly, and we frequently have social events. The workload is stressful but doable. I have loved every minute of my time here.
