Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

My overall experience at USU was fantastic! But, with that said I have a few MAJOR problems... the first, and biggest problem I have with the USU Accounting program is their upper division Accounting classes are taught by a man named Rhett Hunt. He's a CPA, and he really understands accounting... only he cannot teach the subject! He's hands down the worst undergraduate professor I had! So, why does USU keep him? I think it's because they are too cheap to hire a Ph.d. that can actually teach the subject.. So if you are thinking about going into accounting, go to another school. BYU down the road is the #1 accounting program in the nation, Weber State, and the University of Utah both have fantastic programs as well. But, KEEP AWAY FROM USU ACCOUNTING! I feel that I've got ripped-off in my 3000-4000 level classes taught by this man! I cannot, in good faith, recommend USU Accounting program. The economics program was fantastic, nothing I could say bad about it.

Degree: Communication Sciences and Disorders, General
Graduation Year: 2011

USU was a great school that offered a variety of programs that met my needs as a distance learning student. They were also the most reasonable price wise for the type of degree I was working toward.

Degree: Educational, Instructional, and Curriculum Supervision
Graduation Year: 2016

This was a completely online program. Since this program partially specializes in eLearning and online learning their online courses are well developed. You feel a sense of community with each class you take and never feel like you are alone. Most of every learning theory, recourse, technology, and strategy I learned I was able to apply directly back into my classroom for my students. My teaching has been greatly enhanced by what was taught in this program. It was affordable and there were almost always small grants helping me out along the way. I also feel like I have more open doors of opportunity. If I do not want to continue as a public educator, I feel like this program has made it possible for me to easily pursue another career and potentially make more money. Instructional designers are in high demand and so this is a hot degree right now. Cooperate and education institutions are constantly hiring and I would get at least 2 emails a week from USU faculty and staff spreading the word of a new job opportunity that was sent their way.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The program helped me learn how to better my teaching and apply new research based practices. I understand now, where the profession of being a teacher has come from and I understand better the challenges that are associated with the profession. The classes have taught me how to be a better instructor in reading and writing, how to work with students that come from diverse backgrounds, and how to differentiate instruction to try to meet the needs of all my students.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am working on my teaching license and my masters degree simultaneously. I attended the distance campus in Salt Lake City, UT. USU is a great school. The teachers are great. I can honestly say my teaching improved because of these classes. The classes are broadcasted across the state, and the teachers do a great job of using the technology to make you feel like you are in the classroom with them.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2012

I did the ATP program through Utah state and it was a great program with fabulous instructors who understood just how busy our lives were. They made learning fun but most importantly applicable to our everyday jobs. I was able to go through the program with the same set of people as a cohort. We are still able to feed ideas off of each other and make professional decisions with great input from our past classmates. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is wanting to pursue a special education degree. There are very few days that go by that I do not apply the things that I was able to learn from the Utah State University ATP program.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2013

My time there is filled with wonderful memories. Like most universities, your professor relationships can be hit or miss. I had a few teachers that I didn't jive with. I find it interesting how often university professors are professional in their field of study but struggle with the "teaching" aspect of it. That being said, however, the education professors were all of the, fantastic. All of the teachers I had, came with a rich and diverse background of experience at different levels of education. I was able to get into a real live classroom and participate in teaching and observing on several occasions with was the most important part of my educational experience. The school has multiple ways of providing access to the classes. They seem to be one of the leaders of online and blended teaching. I did most of my undergraduate studies in a traditional style on campus class, but I am now in the middle of a completely online masters degree which has been awesome! The school is constantly sending emails of support, and job opportunities that come their way. I feel like it prepared me to be a good teacher, and is continuing to open doors of career opportunities for me. It is not so common to get multiple job offers in today's economy but this school has given that to me.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2009

Utah State University is well known nationally for the high quality of teacher training, requirement standards and educational programs, emphasizing early childhood education and special education training. USU's programs in both secondary and elementary education are research based, and progressive in the fact that they prepare graduates to tackle the current educational challenges facing our nation's schools, such as the shift toward common core assessments, increased rigor requirements for instructional planning, and greater professional development expectations for teachers nationwide. The university provides ample opportunities for students to have classroom experience throughout their training, and gives students the chance to work with some of the greatest mentors in the education industry.
