Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a good program for pre-service teachers. Don't expect your classmates to necessarily be the brightest or most passionate, but some are.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am in the first of two summers in a 5 quarter long Masters in Education program. So Far the pros are that the staff is highly informed about the education process and areas of discipline, the program is nationally recognized as one of the top education programs in a state that has some of the most rigorous standards for teachers in public schools. Some of the cons are that they don't have congruency between the financial aid department and what costs will actually look like compared to the "average" graduate student.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Wide variety of coursework in physiology to accompany research projects. Professors are very easy to talk to. Teaching fellowships are available to cover tuition costs; however, these are very time consuming.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program of Journalism is an excellent masters to seek. The program has excellent instructors and resources to educate their students. The school of Journalism at the UofO is a renowned program. I am challenged and honored to be a student here. The major downfall is that there is only one scholarship to apply for in the entire program and miniscule financial aid.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros are Eugene and the surrounding area, the beautiful campus, affordability of the area, internship opportunities, career development personnel, and flexibility of the degree in terms of taking classes in many different departments. Cons are - some professors don't really care about teaching or their students. There is very little ethnic and racial diversity among students and faculty. The coursework isn't very rigorous.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2017

Eugene is a gorgeous and inspiring area. However, it is a fair bit away from a major city. There are not many graduate teaching fellowships available either. Excellent place to focus.

Degree: Architecture

The overall experience has been fantastic so far. The staff are all very interested in what they do and genuinely want their students to succeed. Additionally, the environment in which we work is great. It's very collaborative and accepting.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Oregon's College of Education is one of the most competitive education graduate programs in the nation. The faculty is dedicated to the students and are preparing them for a career dealing with making material relevant for their students as well as presenting the problematic parts of public education. The program is formatted to teach teachers to teach beyond the traditional standards of education. Teachers are taught to try to focus on the students in the classroom as individuals as well as instituting competitive learning materials. The workload is difficult. Teachers are expected to take classes, teach in local schools and prepare work samples. Hours are long and time management can be difficult. However, the faculty provides support wherever they can. The program is expensive, but I feel it is worth every penny you spend. Each textbook is chosen for a specific purpose (not just because a faculty member wrote it!) and the faculty is readily available. I would recommend this program to any person wanting to get into education to try to teach for change.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

It is an excellent program in Sustainable Design within Architecture, the graduates are known for having a leg up on green design and environmental context. We do vertical studios so some of the terms will be mixed in with undergraduates or upper graduates, this can be seen as a pro or a con. The faculty and professors are very student-oriented, are always welcoming to help out of class, and support us throughout.
