Arizona State University Reviews - Bachelor's in Health SciencesSee reviews of all programs at Arizona State University
Arizona State University has a variety of programs both online and on campus that are diverse and also affordable. While working towards my Bachelors degree I was able to take elective classes that I found to be interesting. This made my education process a wonderful experience. Overall their advisors and aid personal have always been helpful and avalible for questions or concerns.
I would recommend Arizona State Universitys innovative online education to anyone. My experience has been nothing less than exceptional, quick, and engaging. Their online education is very user-friendly; even for those who are less tech-savvy. Online interactions between instructors, staff, students, and technical support allowed me to maintain a professional and personal life outside of my education. I was able to continue a set work schedule, with little to no interruption during my time as a student. Being an online student is convenient and provides flexibility, however, you have to be organized and self-motivated. There are many resources available for Arizona State University students and online students are no exception. When in doubt, refer to your helpful advisor. They are quick to respond and full of surprising tricks and suggestions to ensure student success.
My B.S. in Health Sciences, with a focus on Healthy Lifestyles Coaching, prepared me for a variety of career paths. The combination of exercise science, nutrition, psychology, and public health classes for this degree have helped me thrive in the health coaching and behavioral health fields since graduation.
Arizona State University provides great opportunities for the students to make lasting professional connections in and outside of the classrooms. Not only are students given the opportunity to network, we're also fortunate to be able to get involved with school activities and represent the university the best possible way.
Although it is an extremely large campus, Arizona State University is a place where people are able to find their niche and truly feel at home. From job opportunities, volunteer experiences, and study abroad options, they make students feel welcomed within the diverse environment. The ability to join Barrett, The Honors College is a definite perk of the school. This program entails completing an honors thesis, taking honors classes, and making contracts with professors to complete additional assignments. Working on campus, volunteering around Phoenix, studying abroad in England, studying abroad in Chile, being a member of Barrett, and defending my honors thesis were all wonderful opportunities I had in my four years at this university. I changed my major multiple times, had my favorite teachers, had teachers I did not enjoy as much, made great friends, and got involved on campus which are all possible at many universities around the globe. ASU is different from many of these other programs though because of the countless variety of opportunities available on each of their campuses.
I thoroughly enjoyed attending Arizona State. I had a wonderful experience with the majority of my classes and professors alike. I currently work as a speech language pathology assistant, and I have been well prepared for it. I was just accepted into a graduate school program and I can enter knowing that I will do well because of my educational background. The only unfortunate thing about the speech department at ASU is their advising. The advisor cost me an extra semester at school and another $2,000 because she made a mistake when helping me plan my schedule. I recognized the mistake and asked her repeatedly if something needed to be changed and she assured me everything was fine. That was until about a month before I was supposed to graduate, I was then informed it was not fine and I had to pay more to stay longer. ASU has a wonderful program, just be wary of the advisement!
Arizona State University has one of the most rewarding programs for Speech and Hearing Sciences. I am now going to graduate school at Arizona State University and am employed as a Speech Language Pathology Assistant. The professors at Arizona State have inspired me to continue my education and pursue my dream career.
