University of West Georgia Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Without the political science department at the University of West Georgia, I would not be attending a PhD program in political science. Every single professor was my advocate. They encouraged me to research and submit to conference to gain experience and make contacts. My professors at the University of West Georgia has given me incredible opportunities to develop knowledge and skills in political science. They have pushed me to research more and develop a strong base in quantitative analysis. I would not have had half of the opportunities I have had today without the mentoring provided by our incredible faculty. I can only hope that someday I have the opportunity to inspire the next generation of political science students. I strongly believe that Yale can provide the necessary training to help me achieve my academic goals.
Great program, beautiful campus. Small town feel but a large student body. It was great for me as a commuter student.
The Spanish department was terrible. None of the professors cared about you success and academic advisement was a joke. They won't work with your schedule if you're doing a teacher prep program or have a job. All of their classes are offered Monday and Wednesday afternoon- no exceptions.
The University of West Georgia has an amazing Anthropology program - especially if cultural, linguistics, or archaeology is of prime interest.
My degree program is Marketing. In order to take classes for marketing, you must take Principles of Accounting I and II, Survey of Calculus, English I and II, and College Algebra. After these classes are taken, you can begin taking classes specifically for marketing. UWG offers a variety of classes that cover all areas of marketing (international, analysis, etc). They even offer opportunities to study abroad! UWG offers free tutoring for certain classes and I would definitely recommend that to anyone struggling. Make some friends in your classes and you'll be thankful you did when testing comes around the corner. The campus itself is quaint and small. The buildings are very traditional and very beautiful - the typical southern college. I love the University of West Georgia and the people I have had the opportunity to meet there! There are so many different opportunities offered i.e. study abroad, clubs, events, Greek life, etc.
