Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2019

This program was not a good investment at all. I like the fact that they have diversity, however I was literally the only American citizen in Engineering. We had to stop class so people could be taught Microsoft Word and Excel Basics. If you are a prospective student I highly suggest you choose something other than industrial engineering, or in my case, transfer immediately after one semester to a better one.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The admissions process is rather screwy. I had to meet with the Department Chairman because I thought I was registered for disability services. In the application package it says "Please submit your medical information." It was a weird policy because after they make a decision the admissions department holds onto it. They do not do the logical thing by mailing it to the disabilities office where they can register it so you can take advantage. You have to re-submit your paperwork. Fortunately I believe the process is being changed. Taking night classes is easier because the parking is better except during football season. So, you should allow yourself enough time by going to campus at least 30 minutes early. This will allow you to explore all the commuter parking lots. If you take a weekend seminar be warned. You will get a 30 minute break and the only thing in walking distance is a Subway. There is a Pizza joint a few roads nearby if you have a car. The campus is closed down. Part from being a graduate assistant do not expect to be hired by stores ran by contracted companies. There is a policy against it. Part from that the faculty were great and they do root for you. You have to perform high though for them to be willing to recommend you.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

I loved UNH, I felt connected to my professors as most of them taught from life experiences not just from books. They provided real world situations and solutions that we would face during our careers. By the time I completed my degrees, I felt confident, educated, and enlightened.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The university has a very diverse teaching staff, who are industry leading professionals. My Dean of the department is well known and recognized in the state and city. The professors are all friendly and easy to communicate with. The support staff checks in with you periodically during the semester. The degree is so hands on I can pin point different aspects of what I learn at work on a daily basis. I have my teachable moments where I go practicing what I've learnt with family and friends. I would definitely recommend UNH to anyone out there who is looking to study in the Criminal Justice field.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018

The best thing about the University of New Haven is the people. The staff is knowledgeable, kind, and overall extremely helpful to their students. For Criminal Justice specifically, the professors are fantastic. They have real world experience that they can pull from during lectures and they are always willing to answer any and all questions from their students. The students are generally friendly and intelligent. They are also extremely motivated. Everyone in the program works very hard to make the University and themselves look good through their schoolwork and grades. Overall, UNH is a great school with a fantastic Criminal Justice Program.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2006

I really enjoyed the classes I took; especially since we had the famous Henry Lee come in and talk about such cases as the wood chipper murder and the jonbenet case.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

School offers a lot of extracurricular and career advancing opportunities. However, very expensive and location could be better.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros are that on this program we have a new vision of forensic investigation, but we are the first generation and is a littler complicated. Also, some classes could be changed the material or how the professor teach it.
