Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2021

After completing my undergraduate degree at Wichita State University in 2005 I felt ready to take on the world, however in 2008 that changed when the economy tanked and I choose a different career path. Now I'm back at Wichita State University working towards my Master's degree in a field I feel very passionate about and have been in now for almost 10 years. I wouldn't go to any other school to complete my Masters of Public Administration degree. Wichita State has prepared me to tackle the real world as both an undergrad and as a graduate student.

Wichita State university offer wide selection on majors. It has high quality of professors with clinical as well as teaching experiences. This university also assists students to get into internship so they can gain experiences in the field of studying before graduating from college.
3.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016

The school is great with helpful staff to assist you along the way. Do not stray too far from campus as the surrounding areas to the north, west, and south are terrible. Try to live around Rock Road
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Although I was hesitant about the program, Wichita State has shown me what it means to develop the whole student. We receive a lot of support, through advising and opportunities outside of the stated curriculum. Since it is a smaller school, every professor excels in learning your name and making a connection with you from the start. The classwork can be challenging, but the professors make sure that they are available, whether in person or by rapid response emails. It is because of these things, that I am proud to call myself a Shocker!

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a good school to go to for education. Stay near campus because there are a lot of rundown areas nearby with sketchy people. The professors were great and there are plenty of student involvement activities.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently studying for my master's degree in Communication.The best thing about my graduate program is that I get to study what I love. My professors are very knowledgeable and helpful and I look forward to my classes. The American experience has been a good exposure for me in a field like this. Apart from the fact that the work load is complex and intense,I do miss my family a lot and paying for my graduate program has been extremely difficult.
4.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019

A pro of the graduate program are that the professors were very knowledgeable and accessible. My thesis advisor was very helpful in allowing me to do several research projects and TA for classes. The professors also allowed students in the exercise physiology lab outside of class to become familiar with equipment and testing protocols and also to conduct research. A con of the program was some courses were offered a little early in the day when student's typically worked full time.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The pros of the graduate program were the professors, especially Dr. Jeremy Patterson, who allowed myself to be his graduate assistant and take on a highly funded research project involving a concussion testing app that is now in the NFL. Other pros of the program were state of the art equipment and a newly constructed lab, access to cadaver labs, and the curriculum offered, which included 3 different types of programs including a thesis route, internship, or strictly course curriculum. One con of the program was not having adequate lab time to completely grasp the testing protocols for tests such as VO2max, Dexa scanning, and EKG testing. Another con would be the statistics classes offered. Though the classes were quite thorough, statistics are learned best by hands on learning with research the student is particularly interest in and I would have appreciated my time learning about statistics especially the statistical program SPSS.
1.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Its a great program but there is zero practical experience, which makes it difficult to understand some programs.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

If you want a college town feel then Wichita may not the right fit, but if you want a quality education at an affordable price then look here. Wichita State is a small school that has recently received a lot national attention and therefore is trying to put it's best foot forward. I graduated in December 2014 in the midst of multiple campus upgrades. Donors have recently given over $17 million dollars in donations for renovations specific to libraries, the school of business, and scholarship programs to name a few. While there were a few outdated aspects of going to school at Wichita State, it seems they have recently been given the tools to not only update, but make the school better then the students expectations.
