Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Lots of opportunity for research, but for clinical work, we need more diversity in our clinic in terms of client backgrounds and presenting problems. Many students travel at some point to ATL for clinical work, and it's too bad that we don't have similar opportunities in Athens. Also, pay is really low for assistantships, but assistantships ARE available.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2018

UGA offers grad students unlimited opportunity, from generous travel funds for conferencing and networking to study abroad programs at no cost--they even pay us to go. There are always lectures and presentations happening on campus, as well, because UGA brings in top researchers, scholars, and performers to enrich the educational experience. It's not all about education, though, and there are approximately 100 bars and restaurants adjacent to campus in the downtown area. Plus, big name performers share venues with local artists and musicians in Athens, so there's always something cool to do.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Students here are generally friendly. Athens is a great town.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2019

The graduate chemistry program provides the opportunity to combine extensive research with unique teaching experiences as well as to take a variety of classes both in the field of interest and outside of it.
4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Reading & Literacy Education
Graduation Year: 2015

My professors have been supportive and helpful throughout my program. The workload is rigorous, and the material is interesting. I feel well-prepared to enter the workforce.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Georgia is one of the very few schools to offer a graduate level program in what I was looking for, specifically merchandising for the fashion industry. From day one the staff in the Family and Consumer Sciences department was helpful and responsive. UGA's main campus in Athens offers a lot opportunities for both school related activities and otherwise as Athens has an awesome music and art scene. As a graduate student, however, there is not much in the way of financial assistantship, especially for your first semester.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Fantastic professors that are enthusiastic and willing to go above and beyond necessary to help and encourage the students. The cons are that there is lack of communication in the academic office and university offices at times.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2016

An excellent program with a lot of options of research fields and oportunities of financial help.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The PMBA program has a great staff that will do anything to help students succeed. The reputation of the school is known nation-wide. The university has a vast alumni. The professors are top notch and are subject matter experts in their field. Cons: Expensive
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my program are that the faculty is really attentive and helpful and the graduate students are all close. The cons are that the technology is limited and the program is currently in transition, so some of the professors aren't taking on new graduate students as they are retiring.
