"The school is great, but seems to put too much focus on the success of the university and the students time spent at the university rather than success following the students graduation. They also put too much focus into undergraduate reformation of courses as opposed to graduate and undergraduate. The graduate courses seem to be there for show and not necessary. The surrounding area is fantastic as are the people. Living alone as a student is expensive, and a tiered system of pay for graduate students as teaching and research assistants is not ideal. The tiered system is two-part and is said to be an "incentive" to get items completed on time. This simply shows the schools inability to make a confident decision in choosing graduate students. There is plenty of focus on having a diverse student body and providing technology to all students. Too much time is spent by students online as screens are linked to stress and depression. This also takes away from the appreciation of what things actually are. Pictures fall short of explanations in many cases."

"The Marriage and Family Therapy program at ASU is fast-paced due to the accelerated nature. The professors are the directors and they are wholeheartedly invested in the program and the quality of education. The program provided internships after the first semester is over and the internships carry through the following year. It is a fairly difficult program but it provides the necessary tools in the MFT field!"

"PROS: To get a BCAB, you need to earn a Masters to get certified. This program works towards your masters while providing you the 1500 hours needed to get certified and licensed. CONS: Since this is a new program, the internship clinics are still trying to figure out exactly what to do. You rotate through clinics every 5 weeks to get a full understanding, which is good. Just some places are more prepared than others. Also, this is a heavy workload place, and the professors are expecting so much and placed a lot of homework on you before you even understand what is going on."

"I really like the program because there are so many people from various programs. Not just the traditional types. I wish there was more guidance."

"Pros: The program allows you to actively apply the knowledge you learn. 90% of graduates of the MFT program at ASU are employed in the field when they graduate. Cons: There is a program fee for each credit hour, in addition to tuition. The program is accelerated, so it can be challenging at times."

"I really like my grad courses so far! Since I am a non-traditional student, I just need to get back into the habit of studying and reading. They are very interesting and are going to be helpful in my curving of what I want to do next!"

"My program allows to me fulfill my goals as I see plausible. All the faulty members are willing to assist me in anyway possible to meet these goals. It is a newly instituted program at Arizona State University making funding difficult to find. With time, there is promise that the program will be successful and a great interdisciplinary outlet for students who cannot find a language program with in their interests."

"It is a little expensive, however you have access to the latest ESRI software and additional education modules from ESRI (creators of GIS). This program offers additional programming skills highly sought after by top companies in the field."

"Arizona State University can be overwhelming for some. It is easy to get lost in the shuffle. The cons are there are moderate to larger class sizes and the availability of certain classes is minimal. Due to their phenomenal graduate programs I was able to find my niche and continue on my path to success. The level of professionalism between the staff and the students is great. Professors are continually pushing their students to the limit asking them to think beyond the box. ASU also has some of the top of the line scientific equipment providing students the opportunity to learn technical skills that will be used in the professional world."

"The program is what you make of it. If you don't put in the effort you wont progress and will be back as square one. But the faculty and staff are great. They are always available to talk and discuss my research."

"If you are looking for a place that is seeking to honor creativity, then this might be the place. It is not for everyone, but here in these waters some thinking is wanting to begin."

"The program had caring teachers and a lot of specialty research areas such as sustainability. The weakness came with the core areas such as the foundations of planning."

"The department and the graduate school have been very accommodating and are generally concerned about my education. I feel there is a high level of professionalism and the development of quality research. An advantage of ASU is that it is hot and sunny and a disadvantage of ASU is that it is hot and sunny."
