Degree: Family Systems
Graduation Year: 2018

I attended Brigham Young University. I attended 2 other colleges before this and ended at BYU. I would say that my time here was a time of growth and learning. I loved the professors and the quality of teaching. I did find I got a better education here than the other 2 schools I attended. Where I struggled was the competition at this school. I work hard at school, but am not the best test taker. It was hard with the competition being so high it ended with me feeling discouraged quite a bit. It isn't a bad thing necessarily that it is a competitive school, this was just something I struggled with. Great professors though.

Degree: Communication Sciences and Disorders, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I loved going to Brigham Young University. It was a fun and uplifting environment. The professors were attentive and well-versed in their fields of study. Though I loved most of my program professors, many of them have recently retired and I don't know much about the new professors there. I highly recommend this school and program to anyone!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Brigham Young University is an incredible learning environment. The teachers and other school employees are friendly and willing to help. The other students on campus are all driven to gain knowledge and skills. The cost is much lower than almost any other university and the quality of education ranks high nationally.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2018

Brigham Young University is an excellent school that is committed to serving its students. There is no better school to do undergraduate research, and it's also one of the most affordable schools in the country. The school also offers a different college experience from most other schools with it Honor Code. The school is a great stepping stone to other graduate programs.

Degree: Music Theory and Composition
Graduation Year: 2018

I studied the Bachelor of Music in Music Composition at Brigham Young University. The faculty focus on expanding the musical influences of each student to include contemporary composition techniques and to push the envelope with what can be done to achieve a new, original sound. The faculty are all very skilled in composition and each have their own unique insights. I am pursuing a career in composing for games, film, and television, and while this program did an excellent job expanding my compositional toolkit, I find it necessary to pursue a graduate degree in film scoring to fully prepare me for the media music industry.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2017

BYUs English Department is chock full of educators with a passion for teaching and helping those in their classes see the importance of their studies. As with many liberal arts degrees, the soft skills taught do not correlate with dollars and cents the way a degree in the sciences might, but the skills I picked up along the way have been invaluable for my current career in marketing

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2000

Exceptional faculty. Smart people. The only problem is that the English program is very divided as I think many English programs are. There are the creative types who just like to read books and write and talk about them, and then there are sentence diagraming types who hope to become teachers. They don't get along too well. God forbid you are one type and end up in the other type's class. Yikes. This only happened to me a few times and I survived. It is fairly easy to tailor your experience to get what you want.

Degree: Physics
Graduation Year: 2012

I loved BYU. The school is very much focused on undergraduate so the classes are geared toward good teaching and preparing for a good graduate program. The physics program specifically could focus more on teaching than research, as right now both are just OK. The teaching part of the physics program is excellent, however.

Degree: Family and Community Services
Graduation Year: 1994

BYU provides a stellar educational experience. I was challenged by the curriculum and the depth of research and study required to complete the program. I feel it was a great stepping stone for my graduate degree. The opportunities for clubs and extra curricular activities were plentiful.
