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 Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication is an amazing school. It's relatively new, so they have pretty up-to-date technologies. They really emphasize internships, and most people graduate with about 6 internships, although only one is required to graduate. I had one every semester after my freshman year. However, it is not a good fit for everybody. They give the most opportunities to students wanting to be on-air anchors for traditional news or sports. There is very little focus on print or other focuses of journalism like politics or sciences, so another school might be better for those interested in non-local news. They dabble into new media strategies online like VR, AR and drone footage, but students do not typically walk away with these skills. Basically if it wouldn't be used on TV news, they don't focus on it. However, the school makes up for it in terms of flexibility. ASU encourages students to take classes outside of their major and attend any of its campuses. In fact, the Cronkite school made it easy for me to graduate with two minors and still stay on track to graduate in four years with ease. I didn't plan on taking the extra classes, but I had a great advisor who encouraged me to do so, and I'm forever glad that I did.
I believe that in order to have an effective learning experience at ASU in the Mass Communication program, on campus is where you need to be. You really need to be involved and learn from experiences and surroundings. I was unable to attend on campus classes and did not participate in school events and lost out on many opportunities.
Arizona State University is a phenomenal university that prepares you for the real world and it gets you ready for the field and career you want to work in. It is one of the most well-known universities in the country with some of the best faculty and staff you will ever meet. So go take a tour of ASU Tempe Campus and have a look for yourself!
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 is truly a place where anyone can receive a world class education. The school is huge, and the benefit of that is how many opportunities and networking possibilities there are within the walls of this university. As an undergraduate I was able to work with world-class researchers just by knocking on their door and asking. ASU is a place where any student can thrive so long as they take the initiative to seek out mentors, and carve their own path.
The W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University is a well rounded public state university. The reason I chose this school was mostly because of finances because they offer pretty decent merit scholarships. However, there need-based scholarships are only for a select few and not for middle class earners. In reference to the degree program, freshman are forced to take many entry level courses even if they have credits from high school and the courses themselves are relatively easy. Overall, my experience has been a good one and I would recommend ASU to my friends and family.
The biochemistry program at Arizona State University is a rigorous and time-consuming degree. Because ASU is the number one in innovation, there is a large focus on research. As such, many of the professors have laboratories that you may be able to work in as an undergraduate student. This step is critical to the process of getting a job in industry after graduation. The coursework is difficult, but the upper level professors really do seem to care about the success of their students, especially those that seek help when they are in need. I would recommend this program to anyone who likes a challenge and has a lot of initiative when it comes to their academics.
My undergraduate degree was at American Public Univerisity, I would highly recommend for a B.A. degree! Good, and fair classes and instructors! I am a working parent of three boys, I am trying to do the best I can to advance my career! I am currently working on a Master's to move my career forward.
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!
