Arizona State University is a thriving University. There are an incredible number of programs and the advisers are wonderful in helping your find the right program for you and your career goals. The campus is spacious with unlimited resources to their students. Between the online options and the in-class courses, you can find just about anything schedule you need to be successful. The teaching staff is great and the courses are easy to maneuver with very detailed syllabuses. There is also a variety of financial aid available to incoming freshman with a competitive GPA. I would recommend Arizona State as a valid option for anyone that wants versatility, support, and opportunities in their education.
Arizona State University and the Watts College of Public Service and Community Resource provides unique opportunities to individuals of all ages and in various paths of professional and educational development. The various courses within this program are supported by the universities efforts to provide opportunities students while in school and lead productive and impacting lives after graduation. While you may need to work a little harder with the administration staff, the professors in this program have experience outside of academia supporting the aspect that their lessons are not just theory but occur in the professional world. During my time in this program, I was provided many opportunities that supported further professional and personal development, suggesting that Arizona State University prepares individuals for more than just their career. While the school does not always make it easy to find opportunities, they are extremely supportive of any and every opportunity to work with students to ensure they receive the most from their higher level education. There are a few tips I would suggest when attending this school and possibly in this program. The first would be to take advantage of everything offered, and you may never know what will spark an interest! The second is to be aware, planning for the future is always supported, but enjoy the reality of being in college. The third and final word of wisdom is to ask questions, in making sure that the university and program know your needs as a student as they are here to support you!
This is a great degree if you are interested in an environmental or geosciences career, especially if you are going into STEM education. Be aware if you are looking to be an environmental tech, employeers are looking for BS candidates, and this is a BA degree. I have gotten interviews though, so know what you want to use the degree for.
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.
