"I think a graduate program in physics can boost your carrier. Aa a grad student the workload will be very high."

"I think we have a great graduate program here in physics department. The quality of learning is on top of everything, graduate students receive full respect, resources are available, professors are available and helpful whenever you need them, staff are respectable and welcoming, and the funding and support is good compared with the cost of living. Nothing is wrong with the university or the program, the only think that makes me bored is quietness of the city since I have lived in huge cities."

"Although the University of Alabama was not my first choice, I have enjoyed my time here. The football games are a huge focus around town, and I have met most of my friends at associated events. The faculty members are generally very helpful and nice. The program provides a pretty good stipend, and because the cost of living is pretty cheap around town, especially the cheap apartments, your money can go a long way. Plane tickets are expensive to fly home though, and you have to drive to Birmingham (1 hour) to fly out."

"The program itself is very good - I feel as though I am learning and professionalizing at every turn. However, the financial support is a bit sparse, unless you are an MFA or in Renaissance studies. Also, the program can leave you a bit high and dry if you are a lit person outside of the Renaissance, just because classes are not always offered to support broader interests."

"I am very glad that I am a student here and working as a grad student in Chemical Engineering department. Very Kind professors, promising research field, hardworking students, broad campus, and good football team, what else do you need to be proved of? Roll Tide!"

"I think the graduate program is very good here. The only thing I miss is the fact that the biochemistry group is very small. Due to which students like me don't have a lot of peers to talk to and discuss about lab issues."

"For me, going to this school was a change of atmosphere from my undergraduate institution. Some faculty do support their students extensively while others do not. In my department, in terms of underrepresented minorities there is total lack of diversity."

"The faculty are fantastic and you really get out what you put in. My boss is great, my research is interesting, and I've made a lot of good connections. Football isn't a bad side perk either :)"

"Great program, but the lack of focus toward specific areas of biology hinder the growth of the program. As it is, biochemistry and biology are the same program, so the faculty is always split on decisions."

"The Chemistry program at U of Alabama, Tuscaloosa is a good graduate program in my opinion. I think the course load is very manageable to allow one to get a good amount of research done during the term. The professors are also very accessible and helpful resources. My only issue with this school is that it is a 'football-first-all-others-second' type of school. They really value their football program that sometimes it seems it is valued more than academics itself. It really doesn't affect graduate work, but I've had to park far away from the chemistry building on gameday because the lot was reserved for people going to see the game."

"Overall, I'd say I love this program. Of course there have been a few hiccups along the way. The professors are very passionate about what they do and also helpful. They always want to help you gain research experience or work on something with them so that you learn authentically for the future. Most classes have been great, and the course work applies to the research aspect of educational psychology."
