Angelo State University Reviews
ASU was the best college I could have chosen. This university provides merit-based scholarships that allow students to graduate debt free. The staff takes personal stake in their students' success and challenge you to grow and accomplish far more than you expect of yourself.
I'll speak for this program. The professors are great, except for the guy who taught Research Methods in 2017. I reached out to all my colleagues, and they didn't get the professor's direction either. He should have provided examples of what he was looking for. Otherwise, all the other professors are great. Dr. T. is most helpful in guiding you through to the end. Dr. B. is tough, but he will prep you well for good research and preparing your bibliography. These guys were my favorite. I highly recommend Dr. N. class on Human Rights too. Amazing. If you're going in to government work, I highly recommend this degree through ASU. It's regionally accredited, and you'll be working with top-notch professors who help you go forward in research and employment. You can't put that kind of trust anywhere else. I've even reached out to other universities that offer Security Studies, and they see ASU as a great program too. Definitely worth it if you're a local Intel student too. 14N military training can cover 12 credits out of the 36 you'll need to graduate. No GRE required if you meet a certain GPA requirement. 3.0, I think. Also, you can do a thesis or non-thesis option. If you plan on doing the thesis, get with Dr. T., and start early! Either option is fine. I've applied to two PhD programs now, and neither one have asked for a thesis, so if you want to go further in your education, you won't be seen as a lesser candidate for not having a thesis as a writing sample.
Angelo State University provided an excellent opportunity for quality education. My professors were well-qualified and very concerned about their students. The small classroom size allowed for individualized teaching opportunities. My professors were always available and willing to help.
My University and professors provided me with the proper tools to succeed. Professors went out of their way to provide support and educational assistance at a one-on-one level while still being professional. Even being enrolled in an online Master's program, my educators have taken the extra step to show that they care about their students achieving their personal and educational goal. They figured out your goals and held you accountable to your ability. There were plenty of extra curricular activities that students were able to be involved in as well.
Angelo State University's Bachelor of Arts in Applied Communication primes students to succeed in post graduate studies and in professional life. It is a degree that is niche and flexible at the same time. Students learn critical life skills, such as interpersonal, intercultural, and linguistic skills. Additionally, the program does a great job at helping students feel like they are part of a community through extra curricular programs. If a student's strengths lies in public speaking, researching, and communicating ideas clearly, then this is the program for them.
When I attended ASU I thoroughly enjoyed my department. The class sizes were small and you had a lot of classes with the same professors and students so there was a good sense of community. I would have liked to have given more opportunities in graphic design (growing program) because that is what I initially went to school for but I felt like I was teaching the teacher more than he was teaching me.
Really nice little university. It offers anything you could possibly need, including a newly renovated gym. I liked most of the professors I had the pleasure to meet. I won't lie, I feel like it used to be a lot better when I started there in 2009 but it's still not bad.
Angelo State University drew me because it was a smaller campus, more affordable than other universities and had a great town feeling.
This school was very helpful when it comes to registering. It can be a very scary experience not knowing what to expect, especially if its your first time signing up for school. I have experienced nothing but helpful admission staff answering all my questions and not delaying anything. The student to teacher ratio is awsome to.
