The University of Texas at Arlington Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (36)
UTA was a great university to attend because it not only offered faculty and resources I needed for challenge in my field of study, but made a huge impact on my personal and professional perspectives as well. The campus has a healthy and diverse culture with it's influx of international students and scholarship based students. As UTA is a state university, transferring credits from community college is simple and fair. Furthermore, UTA is a Tier 1 research institution with an MIT Maker Space located inside the library. Overall, this isn't like other universities where the liberal arts students keep to one side of the commons and the engineers stay to the other. UTA is an environment where collaboration is encouraged and innovative problem solving is held to as a high a standard as academic performance. That said, For those students looking to simply "get the piece of paper," you'll be challenged for sure. But it is my belief that the staff and faculty at UTA make a point to understand each students end goals so long as the student makes a point to pursue open communication with the staff and faculty. This is very much a university that has something for offer everyone, and if you want to go far in academia and your career, the staff and faculty will help you do that.
Welcome to the worst University in the universe. I am doing online master program and I had two courses at the same time, I did not know that. This is online master program and students cannot take two courses at the same time. But I did it. I failed the one course because I did not know that. Either my professor or AP coach or my advisory informed me about it. As a result, I failed the course and I have to pay the course fee to get the course. Last year, me and my friend asked our advisory to take two or three course during summer. But the advisory said no because this program is accelerated program. Overall, the system cannot allowed to students to take two courses but I did it and I failed it. No one made a contact with me. I send the email my advisory and I did not get the final answer about the course fee. If I cannot pay the fee until this month end,June 30, I cannot get the course. I mean I have to wait one more month. That's why, the worst university in the Texas. Advisory, she is very busy. Professor and AP coach are very busy to send an email to student when they forget or do not turn in assignment. It was my last course to complete my master program which is Curriculum and Instruction in Math Education.
UTA offered an exceptional program that allowed me to advance my Associate's nursing degree to my Bachelors. The instructors were responsive in a timely manner and very helpful. The IT personnel responded to any issues that I had in a timely manner. Everyone was easily accessible. I appreciated the complete online program. It really allowed me to continue working at my job, while in school.
The degree I received as well as the education was pretty solid. The classes I took were very interesting and for the most part inactive. I learned a lot about our government, society, and America's true history. I would recommend this school to anyone seeking a political science degree...however, you'll have to find your own internships.
I thoroughly enjoyed being an undergrad at UTA, I felt like my professors always went an extra mile to help me whenever I asked for it. The atmosphere is very welcoming! At UTA there are lots of opportunities in each and every field of study. Your success strictly depends on what you make of each opportunity that you are given, no matter how big or small. Your attitude, and willingness to listen, appreciate, and contribute will make your studies worthwhile.
THe University of Texas at Arlington is a good school. I've enjoyed my time there very much. THe staff and faculy are very dedicated to their students and help facilitate numerous opportunities for internships and jobs along the way. The tuition is not terribly expensive, the school offers lots of great amenities and services.
The professors themselves were so knowledgeable, but I wish when I had gone through the program that I could have had more networking and career speaker opportunities. It would have been nice to know what I know now back when I was still going through my undergraduate years. I felt like I had to go above and beyond to do my own networking and contacting. I was incredibly surprised to find I was the only one with a job at graduation from my graduating class from the Biochemistry Department! However, this program is not all bad, the professors are some of the top in the country in the chemistry department and if you apply yourself you can go far.
The BSN program was an excellent program that provided me with the necessary skills and knowledge to enhance the care that I provide to my patients. The course instructors were readily available and provided well structured guidelines in order to meet the expectations of the course.
For my specific degree, I felt limited in what I could do after I graduated. I needed a Masters degree to achieve a future where I could make an impact on others. Though in this way, my degree can be seen as a stepping stone. Just a stop on the education train that would allow me to surpass my parents academic achievements. I am also thankful that through this University I was able to afford it without having to take out huge loans that could have otherwise put me into years of debt. I was also able to work on campus in between my classes which was extremely beneficial to me, as I paid for college on my own. UT Arlington gave me the opportunity to earn a degree that would then lead me towards a great future as a physician assistant.
Attending the University of Texas Arlington has helped me grow academically, professionally, and personally. I learned to love learning because I had great professors and classmates. Not only did I watch myself grow but I also watched my school grow. Grow in diversity, and academic excellence and provide its students with a second home if not the first. I considered going to UTA as the building block on which upon I build my whole career and future and I wouldn't be where I am today if I had not accomplished what I did at UTA.
