Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2015

Don't expect much from the graduate faculty, they're more concerned with their own little agendas than they are with mentoring and graduating students.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014

The mathematics faculty are very aloof and do not seem interested in mentoring the graduate students to get through the program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The cons are that it's Las Vegas and there are many distractions. But there are so many pros. The faculty and staff have been amazing so far in helping me with what I need.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2014

I love UNLV's graduate programs. I am a dual major student (MBA/MS in MIS) and I have to say that the value of an in-class major at a brick and mortar school is priceless. I have learned infinitely more tacit knowledge from my peers and groupmates and it has made my MBA much more valuable that that from an online program.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm a new student to the program but I feel like it is a fair amount of workload. The professors are great and always willing to help the students on their own time. One of the cons is that there are no online classes available. This is challenging for busy working students.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are the classes and teachers are well educated which better prepares me for when I graduate. The cons of my graduate program is all financial. The classes, books, parking etc is so expensive.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that this is a great program, but some changes need to be made to help and encourage those seeking a Masters.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that our graduate program has the potential to give the most in education and research, however, there are so many times where I feel like the work that I am doing does not reflect the level I signed up for. Networking is great since we are so close to the industry and it has brought many industry experiences for me, however, it does not really shape a graduate program as it is traditionally known. It is a perfect place for the type of program, however, I think it could be improved through better implementation of research for the master's level.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The law school at UNLV Boyd School of Law is a cooperative environment which focuses on educating future attorneys and fostering relationships. The school has a strong emphasis on community service and impressing the need for pro bono work after graduation which encourages students to contribute to the community after graduation. The students are supportive of each other, and the faculty members are genuinely interested in contributing to the success of their students. The small environment allows the students to network within the school, which translates to important working relationships in the legal community after graduation.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

Its a great program. We start our clinical work really early. We start seeing real patients our second years vs other schools, which probably start their third years. It's a relatively new and small school but the faculty are all very knowledgeable and we learn a lot both didactically and from hands on.
