Arizona State University Reviews - Bachelor's in Psychology
Review of Psychology Bachelors Degrees
I was introduced to ASU when Starbucks started their College Achivement Plan in association with ASU. I think their online program is groundbreaking and an amazing experience. I am a parent and full time Store Manager and I was able to complete my degree after transferring in as a Junior straight through 2 years. Their block system makes mapping out coursework easier because you can see your loads in two class increments. The financial aid information in their MyASU platform made tracking my tuition seamless. There were plenty of people from ASU available for support but I rarely needed to use those resources because the portal itself is so user friendly and informative. All of the instructing staff were knowledgeable about their subjects and created excellent learning environments for their students. Text book pricing was fair and the course work itself was not overwhelming while still drive all the necessary key points. I feel like I gained so much more from my experience while at ASUOnline than just a degree. I was so happy with ASU's online environment that I have continued on with the Thunderbird OMGM through ASUOnline.
Arizona State University was one of the first universities to change the world and make college more accessible for students that would not have been able to attend college otherwise. It provided state residents a competitively affordable tuition with top-notch professors. The large campus is always busy with students hustling between classes, research labs, and work. ASU has a competitive research program that ranks highest in the nation. The university has really changed their status and risen to the top ranks in best colleges in the U,S, by opening their arms to welcome all students based on their merit and what they can offer. The Sun Devil community is full of opportunities and dedicated to giving back to their communities. That's why I will always be a proud Sun Devil!
I am proud to be Sun Devil. During my four years of undergrad I received a lot support from faculty, staff and students, found great opportunities (working on campus, studying abroad, research opportunities and internships), felt a lot of spirit within my community, safety on and surrounding campus, and had many different options when it came to how and where I could learn. I was honored to receive the opportunity to continue my studies at the number one school in innovation to work towards a masters degree in counseling. I will return to Arizona State University this fall and already I've received emails that are helping me feel welcomed and assured that I can succeed in my graduate program. They encourage me and show me how to get involved with other students in my program, they break down what is expected of me and what routes I can take to receive my degree and they continue to give me different resources to motivate and help me find success. As an incoming freshman 5 years ago I was lucky to have all of those resources and more because I left home thinking I would feel nervous, confused, young and alone. I thrived at ASU and due to the immense support, opportunities and resources offered to me, I graduated with honors for my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with minors in Sociology and African-American studies.
I loved attending ASU. The diversity of students and courses offered was a huge draw for me. I loved the hands on opportunities that were provided via research labs and how invested professors are in undergraduates. I was even afforded the opportunity to attend a research conference and publish a paper while undergrad at ASU.
I attended Arizona State University and enjoyed my experience tremendously. Arizona State University is one of the largest universities in the country so I had many opportunities to network with other students as well clubs and organizations. I was highly involved in student engagement and was able to plan and organize programs for the student body. ASU is also a highly respected research university, I was able to participate in current research studies as well has conduct my own.
Overall I have enjoyed my experience at ASU. I have found staff and professors to be mostly friendly and helpful. I would recommend getting a B.A. in Psychology if one would like to pursue a job in behavioral health or would like to continue on with a graduate program in behavioral health. My degree has helped me find a job in behavior coaching and I am now working in the ABA field. I really could not imagine doing anything else.
I was very satisfied with my experience at Arizona State University. Prior to coming to this school I attended another State University and was not satisfied with the experience. Once I moved to Arizona State University I was surprised at how at ease I felt. The staff and faculty were helpful and welcoming. The school offered several resources. I liked that I could use different libraries and study areas around the university, with computers and printers available. The university also provides a shuttle service for current students who want to travel to different campuses. This service is handy if you are interested in taking courses or attending events at other campuses. I enjoyed the diversity the school offers. I think it is important to have a higher representation of other nationalities. Specially because I am Mexican-American and feel more comfortable in an environment that promotes diversity. The school also has student job opportunities and allows students to hold a job while attending school full-time. These opportunities provide networking and future job options. I think the University provides students with the right foundation for preparing them to go out and succeed in the workplace. It also gives students the options to travel through study abroad programs, volunteer work, and jobs. Overall this is a great school to experience all aspects of college life and proper preparation your future.
I have had a great experience with Arizona State University thus far. I thought that taking classes only online would be difficult, but the staff at ASU make it easy to understand and provide plenty of helpful information to help students learn the material. The academic advisors, tech help, and those working in the financial aid department are always ready and willing to help answer any questions you have. They really go above and beyond the call of duty.
I was a non-traditional student. I originally started school left and then came back a few years later. ASU was at the cutting edge at the time by offering a wide variety of classes online which really enabled me to be able to pursue my degree full time while also working full time and supporting my family. The classes at ASU were much more affordable than the other online options that were out there at the time. The undergraduate psychology program was manageable enough while working full time, I do wish I had better guidance on which classes to take to help me earn my degree quicker and also better guidance on some of the classes I could have taken at community college that would have filled some requirements while also saving money.
I was overall satisfied with my time at Arizona State University. They have so many opportunities available for you to succeed whether its through tutoring, getting internships, or going to professor office hours. They have different campuses, and all of them are impressive.
