Albany State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Albany State University was a great experience for me. The faculty as well as the staff really took an interest in me as well as my education. I was exposed to a number of opportunities to participate in undergraduate research, which was a vital part of my education. A number of years later, I was able to return as a graduate student and had the same experience that I had as an undergraduate student.
Studying Social Work at The University at Albany was a fascinating experience! The classes are small so it is easy to acquire valuable connections with peers and professors. The BSW program also does a great job in assisting students with finding field placements for the senior year.
The University at Albany is a great place both academically and socially for people of any background. The diversity of the University is one of my favorite parts. On top of that the different sizes of classes allows students to learn what type of setting they are most comfortable in.
I am a recent graduate of Albany State University where I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. I graduated as an Honors Program Merit Scholar and Magna Cum Laude (3.76/4.0 grade point average). Albany State University has definitely prepared me for my future endeavors in the field of Psychology. I have learned that Psychology is a very diverse field with a variety of career choices that are not limited to being a therapist. While at Albany State University, I took advantage of opportunities to apply what I learned in the classroom to everyday life by: conducting empirical research, attending and presenting at research conferences, and completing an internship. My professors were always supportive, and as a student I was highly motivated. I have chosen to pursue Forensic and Legal Psychology for my graduate studies. My career objectives are to work with disadvantaged populations, who are typically labeled as mentally ill, delinquent, and/or felons.
My first few years were at a larger school and I transferred over to this one. The setting was completely different and the professors really wanted to see you exceed. At my other school, the professors did not care if you showed up for class at all, and barely seemed to notice ones that were failing. However, at ASU, there is no chance of that. Attendance is a must and some professors even give you homework. You are expected to pay attention and be a part of class discussions.
