Degree: Vocational
Graduation Year: 2015

The program was recently rated number one in the country. Faculty is accessible and helpful. I wish we had more contact with a wider variety of faculty members.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

We have a great food science program here at the university of Georgia. I bagged my MS degree here, and was excited to come back for my PhD, i guess that tells you how satisfied I was with my first experience. The Food science program here is ranked one of the best in the US. If searching for a graduate school for Food Science, definitely consider UGA, go through the visitation program they have set up. Pros: highly respected, located in a bubbly city - Athens, diverse student group. Cons: cant think of any ;)

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

I think it is a great program in a great city. It is a newer program as the public health department hasn't been around for more than about 7-10 years. The professors are wonderful however and I enjoy the classes a great deal.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

The COP does a very good job of administrating the pharmacy program. However, I feel that the COP administration does not trust its students and does not allow them to take on certain projects or give them certain opportunities that might benefit their educational and professional development.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros are that UGA has a great continuing education program. The professors are knowledgeable and helpful in your career planning. The courses are wonderfully put together where they all (3 classes) intermingle with what we are learning. The cons are, being an "older" adult, the diversity there is not met. The average age is about 26 years old. It makes us "older" adults feel like mothers! However, the racial and economic backgrounds seem very diverse making learning and classroom conversations very interesting.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

Faculty is accessible and class size is small. Classes are very responsive to the students' needs. I would love to have more access to content-area courses in my program; i.e. mathematics and science. The way my program is designed, these courses unfortunately feel like an afterthought and are not offered very often or at convenient times.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2011

The network wasn't established because it was a fairly new program

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: Faculty accessibility. Facility support in student ambition and allowing unconventional ideas toward research opportunities. Cons: Minimal funding and lack of interdisciplinary courses/research/funding. Excessive workload w/o max. educational clarification. Long classes seem to be unproductive and could get more out of less time spent in class.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

My program offers a unique combination of challenge and support that creates an educational experience which I find to be essential to my success. Opportunities to be challenged are always available, especially if you are looking for something specific. Our faculty are tremendously collaborative and high quality.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

I am part of the Early Childhood MAT program in the School of Education. I am pleased with my classes and the professors are knowledgeable and approachable. There are also many opportunities to get field experience in the surrounding community. There are a couple of pieces that I wish were different, however. For instance, some crucial required classes are offered only in the summer (specifically math). I feel like, in general, there is not enough emphasis on content area courses that will really help familiarize us with what we will be teaching (math, science, etc.). I am frustrated especially about the lack of math courses and wish I had known I'd have no choice but to enroll in two summer semesters before I selected this program.
