Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: -The campus is beautiful and full of nice people. - The business school faculty is very professional and intelligent. -Networking is great-- easy to secure a job before graduation. -Tight-knit community Cons: -Scholarship opportunities are awful. During my undergrad, I graduated with a 3.99 GPA. However, even with this GPA, KU only awarded me a $1000 annually. This was very discouraging.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty of the School of Education at the University of Kansas is outstanding! The Professors are experts in their field of research and all are highly qualified instructors. KU now offers the choice of courses both F2F and Online. The faculty members are helpful and available to assist students toward their goals and ambitions. KU does not offer as many online courses yet to keep up with demand, but soon will.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

High quality program with excellent faculty. This program ranks in top 20 in nation for good reason. Education is excellent and our grads end up with fantastic options for internship, postdoc, and beyond.

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2015

Workload is not heavy so that you can schedule your own plan for studying and working. In turn, not too much sponsored program seems can not improve students' professional design skills at a very high rate.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program are that I can easily graduate from this program and go straight into working and feel prepared. The cons are that it is very competitive and difficult, but that makes it worth it!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe that the University of Kansas can offer me a great deal of opportunities for my future. I look forward to pursuing my education at the Edwards Campus to receive my MSW degree. The staff and professors of the University of Campus are an obvious pro and continue to help students become professionals.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are the expectation level is really high, for all students, the work level is very challenging and force students to dedicate time and effort into your personal success, and some teachers are really invested into the student's success. The cons are the lack of diversity. Within my graduate program, based on the courses I have taken, I am the only African American student. There is a lack of diversity across ethnicities and ages. Other cons include, some advisors do not know as much as others, therefore putting their advisees at a disadvantage.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

At the University of Kansas I feel I am getting a hands on experience in Architecture. I've been given real world examples of winning clients by going through a competitive interview process already in my first semester. The graduate program involves a lot of hard work and long hours in the studio, but the hard work pays off in excellent work for your portfolio and architectural experience. The professors are very involved and are always available for extra help and analysis of your work. The only thing I feel is lacking with KU's architecture program is the technology; not enough computer labs or computer program tutorial opportunities such as Revit or the Adobe suite.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2016

KU is a great university with a lot of diversity in academic programs and a great networking circle. People here are friendly and teachers are helpful and want you to succeed. I would say that expectations are relatively low though and quality is pretty limited by funding available, specifically in the Architecture department. However, the price of the school and the quality received is a pretty good value. The program helps place students in internships even during school, allowing you to get paid while getting school credit. Our facilities are constantly improving, however are still not competitive enough to compete with other top schools.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The positives to this graduate school program are the fact that you are among a diverse group of students coming from a multitude of backgrounds that are all very interested in the courses and lectures taught. At this level, all of my professors are professional, interesting, and create a strong presence in the academic world. The negatives are the fact that tuition is high and scholarships/grants are hard to come by. Other than that, everything is fantastic.
