Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2014

For the speech language pathology program. The program would be better if there was more equal distribution of workload on the students and faculty. Some things are unorganized. The selection process could use an interview. Overall, my education is valued and my clinical experiences are helpful.

Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Department is small, which can be both a good and bad thing. The program is easy to get into relative to its quality. Students typically don't have problems find jobs or getting into PhD programs. Very affordable student housing. Groceries are too expensive unless you have a car to drive to Idaho.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The pro's of the Online MBA program is the flexibility of the course due to being online. The class load is another pro; one class every seven weeks. Another pro due to the online aspect is the wide variety of fellow students.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm in the On-line MBA program and WSU has put together an awesome learning experience. For the most part classes are interactive with lots of support from the faculty and plenty of opportunities to network. The on-line facilities, such as the library, are second to none. Can't say enough good about the experience so far!

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

My particular program in Political Science,I feel, is outstanding. Whether it is the MA or the PhD program, the staff is incredibly supportive and cares more about your success in what you personally want to accomplish than in want they think they want for you. Additionally, the camaraderie between the graduate students is excellent. There is none of that cutthroat competition that I sometimes hear about in other schools or programs. The downside is of course, the undergraduates and rural surrounding areas. But, those are a given that are minimal considering the pros.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2016

The Political Science department is very small and comes with advantages as well as disadvantages. The biggest disadvantage is that only a small variety of graduate courses are offered. However, due to the small size the faculty are very accessible and if you have a direct interest in the field of political psychology and international security the variety of classes is more than sufficient.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The program fosters a unique atmosphere of collaboration and support. Because it is so casual in nature, there is a tendency to forget to inform the grad students of necessary information-- leaving us scrambling at the last minute. The town of Pullman is small and very cute. For a grad student who wants to concentrate and not be distracted, it is perfect. When you are done working and want to think about something other than school, you are pretty much out of luck.

Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I really love my Clinical Psychology program because it is very strong and supportive (great faculty, variety of pertinent classes, and structure of the program)! Plus, the small-town atmosphere is great for grad school - minimal distractions!
