Degree: Community Organization and Advocacy
Graduation Year: 2017

The school was overall great, close to commute to, and impactful professors. The parking situation was not great. You are required to pay for a parking pass, and rarely find parking on campus. Leaving at least an hour before your class was a must, if you wanted any hope to find a parking spot.

Degree: Acting
Graduation Year: 2010

MSU has a fantastic Acting program. While it may not be the best in the country, the school's affordability along with it's incredible staff make it top notch in my book. The program is rigorous but extremely rewarding. Each year the program grows in both size and prestige producing a number of working professionals which should be the goal of school worth its salt. I highly recommend MSU to any and all who are looking to pursue a career in Theatre.

Degree: Nutrition Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Montclair State University is big, but it feels small. Studying Nutrition with a concentration in Dietetics, becoming the President of a student organization, and Studying Abroad (twice!), MSU created an inclusive, welcoming environment where I felt at home. There are so many resources if you just reach out and find them!

Degree: Human Development and Family Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2017

Montclair State University is filled with caring faculty who want you to succeed. In my major Family and Child Studies, I can say that I am extremely appreciative of all professors I had. They all had a different impact on me that helped me view this field in a different way. They engrained so many principles and experiences that would last a lifetime. Also, the major itself has an internship as part of their curriculum and I can say it is extremely helpful. It has one out in the field gaining experience and networking which is always a great bonus.

Degree: Dance Therapy/Therapist
Graduation Year: 2012

MSU is one of the best universities in the USA. The curriculum is quite versatile and allows ample room to take two minors. When I attended MSU, I felt that I was challenged, both physically and mentally, the dance program is renowned and has had the distinction of being nominated for gala concert for regional college dance conferences. The professors are nurturing and want to see you succeed.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2010

I enjoyed my time at Montclair State University. I made the most out of my time there. i feel as though if you don't really ask for more from your professors, some will just let you pass on by. Don't get me wrong, I had some challenging courses and professors that really challenged me, but there were a couple of courses that I didn't learn much of anything.

Degree: Political Science and Government, General
Graduation Year: 2013

The Political Science program at Montclair State University is not designed to be career focused but one of a general interest. I learned a great deal about urban politics, ethnic politics, comparative politics, globalization and security, women in politics but had little to no real world exposure. In other words, there were no internships offered within the program, students had to go outside of the program to find their own internships or jobs. I never met with my adviser because she was always busy and there are no sponsored events within the program for network opportunities. All in all, the quality of education within the program is good but the lack of guidance and institutional support for obtaining internships, jobs or even providing networking opportunities is what hinders the overall experience.

Degree: American/U.S. Law/Legal Studies/Jurisprudence
Graduation Year: 2014

I double majored in Jurisprudence and Political Science. The jurisprudence program at MSU includes research based courses and a final interdisciplinary thesis. Students tackle the philosophy behind our legal system, legal writing, and navigating legal databases. It is a relatively small group of students and is a great program.
