University of Arizona Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (72)
The Sociology department at the University of Arizona was a program dedicated to students who really wanted to understand their society around them. The collection of teachers from Doctors in the profession to grad students all proved extremely helpful for us students to experiment and make sense of the social research. We had the opportunity to understand the history behind different social theories, and make connections to our modern society and modern social theories as well. I also really appreciated the University of Arizona required a minor in order to receive a Bachelors in Sociology. First it allowed me options in other fields of study to try out. Second, it allowed me to sprinkle my schedule with other classes that could stimulate other parts of my brain. And third, it offered further options of classes to take in order to satisfy the credit number required to graduate. I never felt that I was stuck in one field of study, but allowed to explore the arts (my minor was in theatre) and how that affected society as well. Now I am going into a graduate program to teach Special Education, a bit different from what I studied as an undergrad. However it was my studies at the University of Arizona that got me into this new field of study. I worked in the Universitys Project F.O.C.U.S. which was dedicated to allow intellectually disabled students the opportunity to graduate from a University with a Service-Learning certificate. As a peer-mentor I went to different classrooms around the university to support students in their different classes. All the classrooms I attended had very accommodating teachers that worked with me and the student to make sure the student had equal access to the lesson or project. My experiences at the University of Arizona influenced me to make the shift in my career that will hopefully guide other Special Education students on the path to graduation.
The U of A has a beautiful campus and active on-campus student life. It is a research institution which provides access to experts in many fields. There are lots of professors who seem to love teaching in addition to their research. Technology resources are impressive and faculty seems to be attempting to actively improve their pedagogy. Students, alumni, and Tucson residents are very devoted to UA sports, especially basketball and football.
I loved my college experience and have never second guessed my decision. The combination of degree programs offered, the sports program, and atmosphere were perfect.
The UofA is an all around school for both undergraduate and graduate students. Tucson has a lot to offer both on campus and off.
Amazing campus. Palm trees and beautiful buildings. The "mall" that runs through the middle is kinda the center of things and a great spot for pickup games and just getting a tan. There's so many top-tier programs at U of A, it's a hard education to beat. Not to mention the great culture surrounding all the clubs and teams. There's a huge amount of school pride and the student body really comes out to show it. Tucson really is a great college town, and you feel like you're at the center of everything while you're there.
Great campus. U of A students, alumni, and Tucson residents are enthusiastic about football and basketball. There seemed to be a good mix of professors who are interested in research and professors interested in teaching.
Great school. Great environment, you won't regret this decision if you come here.
Very interwoven and intensive. I was on a first name basis with all of my professors in my school, I knew almost everyone in my classes because I schooled with them as well as did shows with them. I found my school program more intensive and the expectations higher then when I entered the real world which made me excel and build strong relations both in school and out of it. I worked on 2-4 shows per year on top of being a full time student.
Great experience and helped me grow. School/life balance is incredible. Always something to do on campus.
The University of Arizona has a beautiful campus I enjoyed strolling through and exploring every day. I had many excellent and enlightening instructors and took a number of very engaging classes. I only thing I didn't like was taking NATS classes because I hate science.
