  • Degree: Performing Arts
"ASU is committed to pushing graduate students to develop new works and devising new theatre techniques using new modes of technology. The design department is amazing, but the performance department is not an acting program. It is for artists who do not define themselves purely as actors. There are many opportunities for grad students outside of ASU, as Phoenix is a big city and has a fair amount of theatre."

"Pros: Intersting Programs Cons: Faculty who have turned adminstrative because they can't get grant money send too many emails about nothing. Faculty shows favortism and expresses too many political views to support their agenda and sway students. Students are very cliquish and this is encouraged by professors. Also professors will steal grad student research and publish it under thier name or the names of others."

"ASU is very very large (~80K students), however the school of math has great people and plenty of support. The people at ASU make it feel like a small university, but they have the resources of a large university."

"The professors are incredibly available and have a great amount of resources for all graduates. The program is very small and allows for the cohort to really communicate and encourage each other. The program has been more valuable than I expected, and I'm only half way through!"

"Pros: Excellent Engineering program Teachers are really SME in their domain and love teaching, very enthusiastic. Very industry relevant stuff. happening place. They offer grading system of A-,B+ to do the demarcation which also offers a better way of classifying your GPA. Cons: Right in the middle of a desert. Summers can be too harsh. School is really big, and sometimes you feel like lost."

"I really like my graduate program so far. I interact with others in my class, and we talk about our common differences or similarities of our work day. Most of us are teachers, working full time jobs, and taking night courses to obtain our Masters degree. I love the program because it's flexible to fit my schedule for work. If anything arises, its easy to get a hold of our professor/instructor to find a way to work problems out."

"My program is very applicable to my choice of future careers. Already working in the field, the content I have learn has already been put to use on my students. The advisors for my program have all been prompt and thorough as well. However, tuition rates continue to rise as Arizona State continues to raise it's enrollment rates. Some 67,000 students and I don't feel the school has maximized the use of the money they receive to best benefit the students. All in all, Arizona State University is a great school and I value my education above most things."

"Pros: My graduate program gives me the freedom and opportunity to pursue exactly what it is that I want to do. Cons: It's better to go into the program with a solid idea of what you want to do in the future in order to get the most out of the program. Thank you for for providing this service because it will be very helpful to current and future students."

"My graduate program is very small which lets each student feel that they are heard. The professors are very accessible and very aware of each student's abilities and issues in their internships. It is also a benefit that the program is accelerated, so it only takes a year to complete. The workload is very fair for a Master's program and the professors make a great effort in making comments to try to improve each student's work. It is an excellent program!"

"All of the professors and faculty are highly skilled and professional designers. Some still work in the industrial design field and some are now full time professors. The experience and insight the bring to every class is priceless. In the cons column, tuition is a bit expensive, especially for out of state students."
