Student & Graduate Reviews

  • Degree: Music
"Pros: The faculty here are outstanding. Everyone is very knowledgeable and experienced in their field, and are easily available for extra guidance. The department is small which makes student/professor relationships more personal, and also opens up extra opportunities for those who seek them out. Cons: Also because the department is small, there is a lack of competitiveness within the department and it becomes easy to start coasting. Grad students need to be self-motivated to be successful."

  • Degree: Performing Arts
"Though not a Tier 1-ranked school or a well-known music school/department, the graduate education I have received thus far at APSU has been enlightening, enjoyable, and fulfilling. The faculty I have had the pleasure to work with has helped me in some way to grow as a musician and vocalist and are always available for help, even when it's (mildly) inconvenient. There have also been numerous performance, masterclass, and seminar opportunities which have furthered my growth as a performer. As for areas of improvement, the department could use better practice room facilities (especially the pianos--many of the pianos in the practice rooms and classrooms are abysmal). A more rigorous undergraduate audition process would also allow the program to grow faster and ensure that incoming music majors are serious about their work and talented. Overall, I'm happy with my time at APSU and look forward to finishing my master's degree there."

"My overall experience has been a very positive one. My only complaint is that financial aid did not always post scholarships when they said would be the post date, but I always received the funds."

"All of the professors are very helpful and knowledgable about the course material. The work is challenging and thought provoking. My only criticism of the school is a lack of up to date technological resourses."

  • Degree: Education
"Pros: My graduate program provides the opportunity for course work to be more focused within a particular career in which I am interested, instead of being more general. I did not find a similar program in Middle Tennessee. Cons: Many of the graduate classes that are not online begin in the late afternoon. That makes it difficult for those that are working full time and commuting to campus."
