Studying Computer Science at Arizona State University has proved to be very beneficial to not only expanding my knowledge and understanding of theoretical applications of Computer Science but also has allowed me to apply my learning in very interesting ways. I have enjoyed a majority of the teachers and courses that I have taken at ASU and have felt that they have helped me to better my knowledge of best practices in Computer Science as well as pushed me to look forward to learning more and deepening my understanding of software development principles. There are a lot of great schools out there and some that likely have better and more experienced professors but I have found that many ASU professors are willing to work with students that show a genuine interest in mastering the subject and that come to visit with them during their office hours. Having understanding and caring teachers was also a huge benefit of attending ASU as I could work with them ahead of time if I had a family vacation planned during the semester that might interfere with a test schedule and find a time to take the exam when I was available to do so. Like any other university or degree program there were some difficult and not enjoyable courses that could be removed or revised from the degree program to better prepare students for jobs in the future. Despite this, I believe ASU has done a good job overall at revising their Computer Science degree program and continuing to make it better for future students to be more prepared and to receive better instruction while minimizing courses and assignments that are not as useful for the students. I know that during the four years that I attended and completed my Bachelor's degree there were several revisions made to the major map and degree requirements for Computer Science. One of the degree requirements that was revised while I was attending ASU that I took advantage of was taking a course called "Logic in Computer Science" which could take the place of Calculus 3. For me this was very helpful as I did not go directly from High School into University studies and because of that I had not been doing mathematics and was very out of practice. Being able to take this course really helped me understand other important topics in Computer Science and also was much more interesting to me than my Calculus 2 course that I had taken the semester before this class.
ASU Polytechnic is a great study school with plenty of science programs to choose from, advisers to talk to, and a small campus feel that allows for easy formations of relationships with everyone you interact with. I really enjoyed gaining lasting mentors and connections.
Music therapy master degree equivalency program for 3 years at Arizona State University is highly recommended. During the first 1.5 years, students can learn a variety of Music therapy knowledge and skills. After that, students join internship programs for 6 months. It enables students take CBMT (The Certification Board for Music Therapists ) exam for becoming professional music therapists. Music therapy program at Arizona State University is a top level in the US. While studying music therapy, students can also take other music courses such as composition, music history, musical performance which students are interested in. Professors are great and kind. Students can keep their motivation and achieve their goals while enjoying the university life in sunshine and comfortable climate throughout the year.
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.
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 received a BA in Art History and a BFA in Painting through the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. My studies consisted of mainly studio art and art history courses taught by renowned professors in their field. They were always very helpful, accessible, and wanted their students to succeed. Not only did they offer a diverse curriculum and variety of classes that covered many art mediums and topics of art history, but the material taught was always intriguing to me. Overall, my experience was very positive, and that is why I am choosing to continue my education at this university as opposed to any others.
Arizona State University is a great school with many amazing professors and research facilities. It is surrounded by the entirety of the greater Phoenix area, so there are so many opportunities for jobs and internships. ASU opens the door to so many possibilities.
The professors I studied under were all extremely knowledgeable and provided me with confidence that I would be entering my field prepared. The courses were all very interesting and provided a well rounded view of the world of Family Studies. I would highly recommend this program to anyone interested in working with children and families.
I enjoyed my time at Arizona State University. I do believe I attended the school for a different reason than my peers. At the time, ASU was a known party school and had a reputation for drinking and partying, not its education. The only reason I attended was because I received a scholarship from the school and it was close to home. Although this was the case, I do not regret my decision the least bit. I actually learned a lot in my major and met some really awesome people.
WP Carey is great business school to attend. They are ranked well and have great resources if you take advantage of them. I encourage you to and also consider continuing your education once finished with your undergrad. They have many connections with internships that may help you with obtaining graduate degrees.
