Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I absolutely loved studying Psychology at the University of Massachusetts. I started out keenly interested in pursuing a career in psychology but my studies opened me up to the formerly unknown world of science and clinical studies. I was able to participate in many studies and make many connections. I fell in love with science and switched onto the premed track, learning about Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Organic Chemistry. My time at Umass changed my loves and my interests and put me onto a new career path. I am hoping to gain admission to medical school and one day become and ER physician. I owe much thanks and credit to Umass for its formation in my passions and goals, and its help in shaping me as a person and a life-long student.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General

Wonderful experience. Professors were well organized and very easy to get a hold of. Graduate programs staff were very helpful and willing to assist in every way possible. Would recommend this school, hands down as the best Graduate/OnLine experience.

Degree: Spanish and Iberian Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Even though the University of Massachusetts Amherst is a large university, my programs felt small. I really enjoyed classes with most of my Spanish professors, and the work load was definitely manageable. Going to a public school was well worth it for me. I was able to graduate with two Bachelor's degrees by taking 150 credits over the course of four years. I was also part of the Commonwealth Honors College, which has both some benefits and some drawbacks. My suggestion is come to this school if you know that the program you plan on participating in is small.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

Awesome student-powered businesses, groups, and events! Plenty of amazing students doing amazing independent projects. However, the administration is lacking in their connection with their own students.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

UMass Amherst was the perfect stepping stone between high school student living at home to working graduate. It was the best four years of my life so far. It is also not a school to be taken lightly. In fact, I was not mentally prepared for how hard I would have to work at all of the classes. But it was well worth it.

Degree: Microbiology, General
Graduation Year: 2013

A top rank research university that doesn't stand out until you get there and get to see the rich culture the area brings but also the immense number of different classes you can take with top tier researchers and professors surrounding you at all times.
