I attended the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and it provided me with diverse skills to prepare for me for an ever-changing workforce. They provided me with support in many areas. There is a diverse set of classes that correlate with many interests and skills.
I've attended four universities over the years, and I settled on Arizona State University because of how well their online platform is set up. I chose Liberal Studies because I wanted the freedom to choose from a variety of areas of focus. I'm sticking with Arizona State for my Master's Degree because of the quality of instruction I received in the past.
The psychology program is an intensive program that teaches both grammatical and science courses. Research methods are explained in full detail and prepare you for the research required in a psychology career. Many different mental disorders and behaviors are studied extensively which gives a clear cut understanding of how these disorders effect people. The instructors are extremely helpful with any questions or concerns and are very understanding as long as you put forth the effort needed to pass the class.
Arizona State University's Online classes were a life saver for me. In my life situation, I do not have an option to stop working and go to school. With online courses I was able to work full time during the day and attend my classes at night. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the online courses!
Don't assume that you need a science major to get into medical school, which is at times a mistake. Instead of struggling with all the unnecessary science classes, maybe focus on an major or interest and just complete the pre-requisites done for medical, dental or pharmacy school. Trust me. You'll appreciate it! The work load will be easier!
Arizona State University provides great faculty with diverse experiences, but most importantly they want to invest in their students lives. I personally became close with one of my professors who to this day I can still visit in her office hours for both advice and just to talk about any insecurities I have about the future. It's not only important to have a knowledgeable teacher, but also one who invests and cares about their students.
The teachers at the school are very supportive and there are tons of opportunities to meet people and make connections. You can get involved in hundreds of different clubs, organizations, volunteer opportunities, internships, and job opportunities. The honors college gives me the sense of being in a small college but I also am connected to the larger school opportunities and people. I have met so many amazing people at this school and there's just so many ways to improve your education. I never feel at a loss for something to do, study, or participate in on campus.
Arizona State University stretches across four campuses and online. The best part? Students, regardless of major, can take classes anywhere! During a semester, I was unable to be on campus but did not have to stop taking courses because I was able to use the online platform to learn. When college dorm living because to expensive and I moved home, I was able to take classes on the campuses closest to me even though my major was housed on the main campus. ASU is a place to learn, make friends, get involved, create networks, and build memories. I highly encourage anyone to attend Arizona State University.
The Materials Engineering program at Arizona State is very rigorous. but is also a rewarding program. The program does a good job of focusing on mechanical and electrical properties of materials at are beneficial for not only the overall knowledge of the student but also for their employment opportunities. This directly benefits many companies in the local phoenix area, such as Intel, NXP, ON Semiconductor, as well as many other companies from a multitude of industries that need Materials Engineers to produce superior products for the market place. The instruction could be improved, there is way to much emphasis in many classes is on test taking rather than actual application, which I feel application in the form of small projects is more applicable if one is going into industry. Also one thing about the over all curriculum that could be improved is in the middle of the junior year allow students pathway courses for specific material they are interested in. For instance if a student interested in polymers, ceramics, metals, bio-materials or semiconductors have courses that specific to those classes of materials. All that aside the program as whole is very good in comparison with other schools and the graduate program is one of the best in the country, I would recommend the program to anyone interested in pursuing Materials Engineering.
The School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at Arizona State University is a great program for students interested in a career in applied mathematics, mathematical biology, and computation mathematics. However, students wanting to enter a field of theoretical research may want to look elsewhere. A vast majority of the faculty is interested in applied mathematics, and theoretical classes are not offered adequately for many undergraduate students. I am studying applied mathematics, however, and am very satisfied with my experience in the SOMSS.
