"ASU online is a joke. I am currently in the MA in Communication program and there is horrible communication . The professors give very little constructive feedback and the TA’s are useless. I was told this is a go at your own pace degree program that is not true. It’s accelerated and we are doing a full semester’s worth of work in 4-7 weeks depending on the class. I work part time and many other students work full time and/or have families. The structure of the program and professors do not take these factors into account. They are very supportive and helpful in the beginning but as the program goes on they basically don’t care. A success coach will call once a month and give you a generic line about being there to help and offer guidance but they just give you online recommendations to websites and other resources through ASU that are of zero help! Forget about getting an appointment with the graduate writing center it is always booked and the undergraduate one is a joke. They have a peer to peer model which means students are helping students. I see how this can be helpful to a point but they need to hire actual writing instructions/professors to assist students especially at tte graduate level. They do not make things flexible for students as they claim. The professors and a majority of the otter students do not want to help or make connections they want to get things done and move on. They need to offer other methods of teaching their courses like a true go at your own pace and a cohort option. Having more options will help students pick a model that works for them. And their learning style, Help. Student retention and improved communication between students and staff. I would not recommend this school for an online MA/MS degree unless you have a lot of time and don’t care about interpersonal communication and making connections and not getting little helpful support."

"I had such great support from the faculty at ASU. They truly care about helping you succeed and have such a wealth of practical knowledge in the field of journalism. They pushed me to be a better writer, critical thinker, and researcher."

"ASU has provided me with a variety of opportunities toward advancing my career. One of the major benefits of my degree is how much leeway I have in deciding which courses I take. This has allowed me to not only take required and creative classes, but also to participate in multiple entrepreneurship programs through the business school. The IDMP program through the School of Film, Dance and Theater is a hybrid degree combine arts and technology and part of the coursework is taken through Arts,Media and Engineering. If you are self-motivated and have come from an eclectic background, this is a great degree for you. There is an element of exploration early on that helps narrow down what path you want to take when you leave school. I'm really happy I made the choice to attend."

"I am very happy with Arizona State University and quality of education I received. I am due to graduate in May of 2017 with my bachelors, and I am now pursuing an MBA at ASU with the WP. Carey school. ASU has so many career opportunities as well as resources available to students, it is a great experience that you will truly enjoy, and also gain the education that you need to pursue the career of your dreams."

"The Master of Arts in Communication Studies program at ASU's West Campus is phenomenal! I knew I wanted to pursue my M.A. in Communication, but waited until I found a program I felt would sharpen my knowledge in the Communication field, push me academically, and also help me glean knowledge to empower others. I was thrilled to find the M.A.C.S. program at ASU West! It is a perfect fit for those hoping to further their education on small campus with supportive faculty, opportunities to network, and be well-prepared for a future career."
