The graduate program for music education helps to create a well-rounded researcher and practitioner in the world of public school teaching. There are many musical opportunities that are available to students, which is a big plus for continuing performance skills.

Many of the questions did not relate to me considering it is an online program. The program is terrific and the teachers are very helpful and easy to access.

The faculty are great and go out of their way to help students. They truly like what they are doing in the university setting. The lab spaces are great but the program itself could use some adjustments as far as structure of classes and requirements. I believe they are in the process of making changes so it will be improved.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: The Clinical Exercise Physiology program is a great preparation for cardiac rehab or other areas of interest in a clinical setting. It provides plenty of hands on experience (400-600hrs required) through the clinical hours or internship. The program also prepares and requires students to sit for the ACSM Clinical Exercise Specialist certification in order to graduate. Have this certification not only sets the student up for more career opportunities, but also prepares the students to sit to become a Registered Clinical Exercise Physiology which is a more advanced version of the CES exam. Cons: This program at this university in particular is not flexible, and somewhat unorganized or undecided as to what electives are appropriate. This is a full time program, meaning the courses are not offerred at any time during the year. They are only offerred during certain semesters and the program is meant to be completed within 1.5-2 years. It its difficult to have a job on the side while doing the program full time (meaning about 15hours/semester). Obtaining the clinical hours becomes almost a full time job.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I am still on my first year here at UGA but it has been fun. There are a lot of orgs that support students and the community in general is very helpful. Faculties are experts in their respective fields, very knowledgeable, and easy to approach. Grad students are very friendly. Night life in Athens is also something to look forward to. Overall, the university offer a balance between life inside and outside of school.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: The classes are set up to make you think on your own to increase your ability to think critically Cons: Sometimes you are not entirely sure what the professor is looking for and that is negatively reflected in your grades. It is also sometimes very hard to get in contact with the professors.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Overall my experience at UGA has been great. The faculty are fully supportive and have challenged me to excel within my specified areas of interest. They have taken the time to get to know me both as an academic and as an individual. The surrounding community provides ample opportunity to get involved and is only a drive away from all Atlanta has to offer.
