Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

There is a lot of information about jobs offered after completing this program and the location of the school and public transportation is fantastic. However, the program is geared toward people new to education and I feel like people who have experience in education might not be challenged as much as they could be.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Minnesota offers students one of the best physical therapy programs in the country. Class sizes are small which allows for optimal learning.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

U of M is an outstanding institution. I completed my undergraduate degree here and now working toward a MEd.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The DPT program incorporates, classroom, research, and clinical education into the curriculum right away. This offers students a complete and applicable understanding of the profession and the underlying theory, both current and future.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2016

I think the large network of surrounding companies makes it a very attractive program. The faculty also add great value die to their experience and commitment. 
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2018

I love the physics program at the UMN. Now that a new physics and nano-science building has been finished the width and depth of programs/research areas will increase and make it even more competitive in the national scale. I work in the Fine Theoretical Institute and the faculty there are very good in what they do and are very helpful.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2019

The Twin Cities are an awesome place to live (well, Minneapolis, anyway), and the U of M is a good school. The quality of instruction is sort of limited by the quality of the students, though - this is not a top ten school, and the students here are not of the same caliber as those at top ten schools, so the instructors must teach to their audience, and as a result the courses are less rigorous than they might be elsewhere. There has been quite a lot of criminal activity around campus of late, but there are so many thousands of students, your chances are still pretty good not to get mugged.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: The UMN School of Public Health has extremely knowledgeable faculty and a wide array of professional development resources such as the alumni mentor program and academic adviser pairings. Academic expectations are very high and classes require a considerable amount of time and effort outside of class. Cons: The school provides fewer tools to help students find internships/field experiences than other graduate programs. Unfortunately, there have been increasingly high rates of criminal activity occurring near campus in recent months.
4.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Minnesota's School of Social Work program is a competitive program that is both grounding in academics as well as practice-based knowledge. The Field Placement program has been a great experience, as the U has many connections with local nonprofits and human service organizations. There is a nice blend between macro and micro level knowledge.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2013

The program itself is incredibly valuable, one of the best veterinary schools. The biggest drawback of this program is the cost and how much debt each student graduates with in comparison to the salaries that they will be making.
