Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

This program is a very good program! This program works well with their students and allows each student to have one on one experience with teachers and faculty. Some pros about this program is they have a step by step program to ensure graduation rates and gpas are overall kept up. A con of this program is the competitiveness of the acceptance and the entrance interview are group interviews.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Because this will be my first semester in graduate school, I don't know if I can adequately grade the program. However, from what I have experienced thus far, the faculty in the Family Studies program has been such a great help with the application and registration process. Also, my advisor has responded to emails with my questions and concerns in a very timely matter.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy the small class sizes and close knit community of this school. The architecture building, designed by Antoine Predock, is a fairly new structure and is nice to work in. An internship program would be really helpful, as well as more help with career placement. Overall the professors and the advisers are easily accessible and helpful.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2015

With the graduate architecture program at UNM, they have licensed architects who teach us everything they know. They provide us with the information that we need to know in the field. They value our education as well. They are willing to stay late with you or set up private meetings as well. One of the drawbacks though is the workload. Going to architecture grad school is essentially 2 full-time jobs. You have to make time to be able to do anything else.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

A few of the pros of the graduate program include the quality and education the professors have had. The location of the school is nicely situated in a college town that has all the necessary amenities for an out of state student. Some of the cons of the graduate program include that it is far from the where I live and also there aren't too many students in the graduate program as I would expect.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The counselors are good for my program and usually respond within a week when I have questions. They have good advisement and genuinely seem to care about students who are trying their best.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2014

As an adult returning to complete my degree as a more non traditional student, this program offers me the flexibility and faculty interactions I would expect as a working professional.
