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.
I love my experience at USU. It is greatly diversified, giving a huge variety of things to do, as well as ways to learn about other cultures. My academic journey has also progressed a lot, as I learn hands on and with a purpose. I am able to bring my education into the work world, setting me ahead in my future career.
Utah State University was a great school and their online program for a degree in Family Life Studies was educational and convenient. It was nice to be able to take all the necessary classes online since I was not near the campus and couldn't uproot my family to continue my education. The professors at USU were great to work with and were very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. Also the advisors were very educated and there to help make sure you had the information you needed.
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.
Utah State University offers a wonderful program for Landscape Architecture. The faculty are top notch and always spending all of their time helping students succeed and network. The schools advising staff are also exceptional at attending to the needs students have in regards to any issues with courses or registration, making the process seamless so that you as a student may focus on your classes. An education here is invaluable and worth pursuing.
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.
Utah State is a great school, focused on it's students. The professors are great and the atmosphere is inviting and academically challenging.
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.
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.
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.
