This will be my second time attended Arizona State University. ASU has partnered up with Starbucks Coffee Company. If you are employed with Starbucks then Starbucks will pay for your full tuition for your Bachelors Degree. This is what I did. With the money I saved from my bachelors degree I am now going back to school for my Masters Degree. The one major thing I love about ASU is that they really care about their students. There are so many resources that are available for me to help get through the programs. ASU makes learning less stressful and fun. ASU is one of the best schools I have gone to by far.
Arizona State may be the largest school in the country, but it has a small town feel. Walking around campus, I remember constantly running into people I knew. After freshman year, the school does a great job of ensuring the classes are small as well. There are students from every state, and there are endless opportunities for involvement on campus. Add on the fact that there are high quality sports and a thriving Phoenix metro area surrounding the campus, I can't think of any other college I would have rather attended. I absolutely loved my experience at ASU and it had a profound impact on my life.
I thoroughly enjoyed my coursework, colleagues, and faculty when studying Global Studies at ASU. When I started ASU's Global Studies BA program, I honestly did not yet know what I wanted to do for a career--I just know I wanted to make a difference. ASU's Global Studies program offered a unique variety of coursework which helped prepare me for just about any career. I studied research methods, urban planning, transportation planning, environmental planning, globalism... even counter terrorism. One of the best things about the Global Studies program was the required international internship course. I decided to do my internship in Thailand, which was one of the most eye-opening and memorable experiences of my life. I went with a group of 15 students and three instructors. The curriculum took us all over the country, studying everything from sustainability, resilience planning, transportation planning, architecture and history, and even gave me my first opportunity to work with government and business leaders on a multitude of topics. I truly value every experience I had in the Global Studies program, and feel the coursework provided me with a strong foundation for my career, while providing me with a unique global perspective relating to urban systems, rural development, and how our decisions impact the global economy, social health, and environment. I would strongly recommend ASU's Global Studies program to anyone.
I enrolled at Arizona State University in August 2015 and do not regret it at all. I originally declared my major as Economics but switched to Accounting halfway through my sophomore year. The business school is amazing and has very good and qualified professors teaching there. I highly recommend going to ASU, especially for their business programs.
The College of Health Solutions takes many steps in preparing their students for their next steps into the professional work place. I had various internship opportunites, a variety of volunteer opportunites, and labs and classes that provided first-hand experience and a wealth of knowledge. Arizona State University as a whole also provides many helping resources and opportunites for students to be successful while in school and upon graduating.
The PhD in Biology at ASU is a thesis-based research degree. Current funding from the School of Life Sciences provides funds during years 1-5 during the Fall and Spring semesters, as well as tuition remission and health insurance coverage year-round. The PhD has few course requirements, which allows the student an opportunity to focus on his or her research projects. Unfortunately, many students take longer than 5 years to complete their PhD, where their funding is no longer guaranteed. Moreover, while the funding during the 9 months of the Fall and Spring semesters is guaranteed, there is no guaranteed funding for the summer months. Both of these concerns lead most graduate students to look to alternative sources of funding in the form of grants or part-time assistantships to support themselves throughout their PhD. While the health insurance coverage provides assistance with basic needs, chronic or severe medical issues, or the financial costs of child rearing may force a student to incur additional debt through loans.
The Professional Flight program at Arizona State University was undergoing a transition at the time. Unfortunately, ASU and their partnered flight school, ATP, did not plan well for incoming students. In reply to this, ASU nixed the requirement for students to receive their CFI certifcations in order to graduate. However, with this said many of the professors in the aviation program are very knowledgable and have a lot of experience in the aviation field from various periods. As far as ATP flight school was concerned, there was both good and poor instruction throughout my traning from both the CFI's and management alike. The degree program has beneficial courses, however keep in mind there are other ways to become a pilot besides a collegiate program. With this said, I am glad I did the Professional Flight program because I was not well-equipped to undergo fight traning independently without University guidance.
I obtained my Bachelor's of Arts in Education in 2002. My program allowed me to student teach for a full year. Through the classes and instructors, I felt I was ready to take my own class. The coursework definitely prepares future teachers to deal with the issues and pressures that educators face. I completed my coursework at the Main Campus in Tempe, beginning my studies in 1999 and graduating in 2002. The instructors were very knowledgeable, caring, and available to assist in any way possible. My professors were very experienced in their field and supportive in sharing their knowledge with their students. My programs at Arizona State University allowed me to be successful in my first year of teaching and it led me to teaching overseas for six years. When I decided to return to school to obtain my graduate degree, I had no qualms in returning to Arizona State University to get it. This time around, I returned to work on my degree online. So far, my online courses have been high quality, with wonderful instructors. If you have a question, they are available to answer and all grading includes feedback. My counselor has been very helpful in guiding me through which classes I need and the order I should take them. My experience with Arizona State University has been nothing but positive. I highly recommend attending Arizona State University for undergraduate and post graduate degrees. Arizona State University has amazing programs, especially in education, that provide high quality education on site or online.
Arizona State University is the best college and I made a great choice by attending this school. I have never had any bad professors or any bad experiences. Everyone here truly cares about your education and they want you to be successful. The classes can be challenging, but that is the best part about it. They offer degrees that are accelerated if you want to dedicate time to pursuing your degree faster.
ASU is an incredible college, staffed with fantastic professors who care about the education of their students. The classes that are offered in Criminal Justice program are relative to what you will need to know to get future employment in the field. My experience with the professors have been great, and they are all knowledgeable within their field of expertise.
