Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

Wayne State University was a great college to attend. I greatly enjoyed being in the heart of downtown Detroit, a city that is booming and has a lot to offer. Also, Mike Illitch just donated 40+ million into the business school which will be awesome!

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

I loved (almost) everything about WSU. The campus is beautiful and well secured, the campus life is spectacular, and the education was top notch. They will always lose your paperwork at least twice, so make copies. But if you can get past the bureaucratic nightmare, you'll love WSU.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I studied elementary education at Wayne state university. The very first thing a person should do is meet with an advisor and create a plan of work that you both sign, that way you don't take classes you don't need. Follow the plan of work and meet with your advisor once a year. WSU prepared me well and I was able to obtain a public school teaching job after one year of graduation!

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2011

I received my bachelor's degree from Wayne State and am currently pursuing my master there. It is a great school with a lot of variety in courses and a large diversity of people which I loved. Many people get nervous because it is in Detroit but Wayne has its own police and other security programs which makes it very safe. It is is small campus. I was able to walk to every class I attended which is much different than a MSU or U of M. Overall a great school. You can learn so much about culture just from the city along with what you are studying.

Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

WARNING: Review for online MEd Instructional Technology and Performance Improvement program. This is based on taking two fifteen week courses in 2015. I have twenty years of business experience and over six years of online professional development. Having an Information Technology background, I would highly NOT invest in this online program. It is the biggest regret in financial investment I have made in my entire life. All I can say is, I can't believe a school conducts its practices in the way the School of Education did. I had a good student and external professor experience for IT6110, but that is it. I can't post what I really experienced, in fear of another threatening email from the college. And you may ask yourself why would a 40+ year old woman make up a bad experience when she really wanted to complete her graduate work to be able to help other adult learners? Hopefully in the future it will improve. But I have a right to at least inform the public that I didn't have a good overall experience with the school and most of the faculty here. I just wouldn't invest in online programs at this college. If you ask for a refund even in week two, you will just get tossed back and forth to other departments to get approval. And nobody will approve it. You will be forced to stay in the program or pay the consequences of dropping out.

Degree: Educational/Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

The M.Ed. in Instructional Technology program is geared towards entry level teachers. The IT7100 course had many technical problems. Lectures were never posted until Thurs. or Friday. The curriculum for the entire week was usually only 1 or 2 sentences long. Grades took 3 weeks. I had a good experience with an external IT6100 course. But would never recommend the program. Staff seem knowledgeable about the field, but you could tell the IT7100 was thrown together each week at the last minute and the professor didn't do a lot of planning. This is no good when especially the field is for Instructional Design.

Wayne State has excellent professors that put their students first. The education is focused on practicality and has real world applications.

Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

One of the most highly rated urban colleges in the country. Being located in Detroit sounds unappealing for most, however the campus itself is charming and the classrooms/buildings are constantly being upgraded/renovated for a more modern and sophisticated urban presence.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

It was a nice upgrade from high school. College students need to be careful to manage their time well and make time for work, school, and play. It's important to focus on school but also keep a balance in your life.
