Degree: Early Childhood Education

Wayne State is an affordable public option for graduate students on a budget.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

The benefits of the MSW program at Wayne State University are that it is on an urban campus in Detroit, and the university provides a lot of student support.

4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2014

Although at first glance a school located in downtown Detroit may seem intimidating, the value of Wayne State's education and the friendliness of the campus community outweigh any unsure feelings. The Library and Information Science Program is super cutting edge. It has a strong focus on technology as well as the roots of the profession. It also offers many online courses for students who work full time or who have families.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

It was a long wait to hear if accepted into school. Counselors have been wonderful, professors this semester are great, workload has been decent. I have to keep an eye out around campus because of a string of robberies, a little paranoid. Parking has been good and the commute is great.

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe that my graduate program challenges me to think about the reasoning behind the concepts that I am learning. The program motivates me to research and understand teh material that is being taught. I feel like it motivates every day to stay focused and reach my goals. The graduate program can be stressful but it also provides a balance to be able to breathe. I think that the program will help me become a successful research scientist. The only con that I can think of is that the program takes up alot of time which has made me become less social but I know that in the end it will all be worth it!

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

Affiliations with nearby hospitals and the numerous benefits that they provide is one of the major reasons for choosing Wayne State University's pharmacy school over the pharmacy schools of the University of Michigan and Ferris State University.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a challenging program with a lot of supportive faculty and staff. The classes show you the value of what you're learning and how it applies to the work world.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2008

I really enjoy the graduate school program here at WSU much better than undergrad. I plan to enroll in their Master of Counseling Program with a concentration in School and Community Counseling and adaptation in Rehabiliation. I tried to go else where but the location is great. Cost affordable and the staff is great. I would reccommend WSU to anyone. I would suggest to new students to manage their financial aid so it would allow them to attend spring and summer sessions. I'm super excited about the Counseling Program. Good luck everyone!!!
