Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of pursuing a degree in Information Technology at Umass Lowell is the affordability of the program, and the length of time it takes to complete a Masters in IT which is 1 year. T

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

I believe that the quality of the education in the Criminal Justice Program exceeds other schools.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Being online the program allows the student to work around any job responsibilities and work on the course work any time of the day or night. That is one of the things i like the best. At times it can be a bit difficult to get in touch with professors, but I don't think it is any worse than if taking a class on campus. Basically one has to attempt to be available during scheduled office or chat hours. I find the professors to be very helpful and the work to be challenging. Sometimes the workload seems overwhelming, but that can be true of any program. Being an online program with an accredited University makes it worthwhile since you still have the reputation of the University behind your degree.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2009

UMass Lowell is really working with the city of Lowell to improve the image of both the city and the campus. Over the next 10 years, the contributions from UML to the city in terms of an affordable excellent education in new facilities with exceptional educators cannot be understated.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

I wish there were more cadavers available for the gross anatomy course but the rest of the the program was great.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently pursuing my Masters in Computer Engineering at Umass, Lowell. The program is very competitive and challenging that requires perseverance and diligence. This program sharpens my skills, knowledge and makes me experience in my field that I can confidently work in the company I deserve when I get graduated. Maybe that is why the tagline of my university says" Work Ready; Life Ready; World Ready."
1.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

There really isn't a whole lot you can you do with these degree and the quality of classes was much lower than I expected. It is often difficult to get in contact with professors.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The Community and Social Psychology graduate program at UMass Lowell is wonderful. I feel I could not have made a better choice at this time in my life. I appreciate the expertise of the faculty as well as how supportive and excited they are for their students. The program is one of a kind and rare in the United States, as Community Psychology is still not well understood or recognized. However, the skills taught and opportunities for field experience are very accessible and the network for alumni appears to be strengthening every year. I am very excited for the program and for the opportunity to attend and possibly present at the Society for Community Research and Action (The APA's Division 27) conference which my University will be hosting the year I am to graduate from the program.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in my first on campus semester and am taking my MBA part time. The school makes it very easy to fit part-time grad school into your schedule and understands the demands of being a working professional in school. I have found a strong emphasis on real world application of education fundamentals and a strong emphasis on capitalizing on the experiences of the working professionals in class.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

UMass Lowell is a school growing at a rapid rate and the increase in technologies and staff expansions creates a great learning atmosphere. The knowledge is much more practical and applicable than most schools making it the perfect career preparation school.The downfalls lie in the overall atmosphere of Lowell and exposure to dangerous drugs to young and easily malleable minds. Also, the school is very expensive for housing, food, books, and parking. The financial aid services and staff in general are overtaxed and therefore unable to properly attend to students. Overall the school is worth the second glance it may take to observe its diamond-like facets through the rough exterior.
