Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2013

UNL's Ph.D. program in mathematics is wonderful. The department is extremely supportive community. I highly recommend this program to prospective graduate students.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

The school is very flexible when it comes to creating my own program. The classes I'm taking are upper level courses, and the teachers who provide the classes are wonderful and always available to answer questions. Lincoln is a very affordable city with a lot of diversity. I drive everywhere because I don't like the bus system, but overall traffic isn't terrible by any means.

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

Small department, so easy to get to know everyone and discuss projects. Stipends are relatively low, although so is cost of living in the area. Most of faculty does good research

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

The best part about my graduate program is the continued opportunity for research. There are also great professors to learn from. The research methods and statistics courses are particularly advanced and useful. The worst part about my graduate program is the lack of coursework specific to cognitive psychology. I have found myself having to sign up for courses in social psychology and other types of psychology without learning more about my particular field.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

I am in my first year of my PhD program at UNL and I feel like the workload is reasonable for a doctorate program. My department is going through several changes in faculty, which makes it difficult sometimes to get answers to my questions and to network, but overall, I feel it is a great value and have been really happy with the quality of coursework.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty in the program are very accessible and willing to help the students. The program does not do a good job at bringing the first year students together, which would enable more interaction among the students.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

The overall value is good. It's a safe campus and I rarely feel unsafe. There are moments when I feel I don't learn as much from the classes as I should and that not enough time is taken to properly teach. Unfortunately financial aid does not exist for the post-bacc program I am in, so all costs are out of pocket.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I feel that my program is awesome because of the collaboration amongst my peers and the faculty. Though we strive for high academic achievement, there isn't competition for who is best in the program. My program offers a very good education in school psychology to prepare me to be a good clinician and practitioner upon graduation. However, because my program must meet the extensive APA requirements, it is challenging (but not impossible) to find educational opportunities aside from those outlined by APA. For example, I wish there was more training on crisis intervention.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros are that I have the flexibility to tailor the program to my interests. The downfall is that financial aid is incredibly limited, making school a little more difficult to pay for.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: My graduate program offers courses both online or in person, which provides a lot of flexibility for students. The instructors in the classes that I am taking are easy to communicate with and respond quickly to student needs. Cons: I don't get a lot of information about financial aid or other options for networking, finding a job, or any type of career placement. I think it is available but I have to dig for information.
