Student & Graduate Reviews

Jackie - 9/19/2019
Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2010
"The Graphic Design program at Umass Dartmouth was wonderful. The professor were extremely engaging, knowledgeable, and truly cared about their students. The courses were both rewarding and challenging. Additionally, the price is affordable as far as higher education goes. The campus can be somewhat depressing looking and the location isn't amazing, but I was able to make quite a few friends within my program. There was always something going on, on campus, which was also nice. Overall, if you're looking for a great education at an affordable price, I would highly recommend Umass Dartmouth."

Heather Forde - 8/7/2019
Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2002
"An outstanding faculty for a fraction of the price of neighboring art programs- PLUS, you can never undersell the importance of a university. Making connections with classmates from a variety of backgrounds in a variety of fields and programs is integral to learning to function and make connections in the real world."

Steven Rooney - 6/25/2019
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"The campus took a while to grow accustom to and can be a little abrasive at first. The ascetic grows on you over the years and by the end you'll find it looking very beautiful with all its fields and contrasting concrete buildings. The professors were run of the mill and left a little bit to be desired. Over all my experience was a positive one with plenty of people to make it feel like you are not just at some small commuter college. Making it very easy to make friends and connections. My specific program was rather new so it was still being worked out and the curriculum was still being ironed out. Making it difficult to really get a good feel for the rest of the schools programs. Most of the comments i hear about the other programs come from the engineering and nursing fields. All of which I have heard great things about and have some really great professors."

Horrible - 4/3/2019
Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2019
"This school is pretty horrible. Upon entering it looks like a prison. Very dark cloud hanging over the school on most days. I had to take a medical leave and they still charged me for the semester. Someone had taken my student ID and used my meal plan while I was on leave and they say its my fault and have to pay. I am white. I was uncomfortable witnessing some of these disgusting displays of students. On more than one occasion saw a car driving around the look playing what sounded like Civil war songs about killing African Americans. Saw derogatory banners posted around the school directed at African americans. I can only imagine how African American students must have felt. The food options are horrible and the housing is poor. The Dells, living area for upper classmen is patrolled as if we entered martial law. The bursers office likes to play telephone tag and send you to different offices only for them to send you back. A bunch of people who clearly dont want to do their jobs. This school is a mess and would advise anyone to stay far away."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018
"The small classrooms were an excellent learning environment. Cost was very affordable. The staff and faculty were very helpful and there were many opportunities for research. Professors were very involved in helping students reach their research goals as well as help the students prepare for graduate school or career opportunities. The campus was a very friendly environment and very accepting."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013
"The nursing program at Umass Dartmouth was outstanding! It was very hands on and certainly prepared me for my career. All the teachers were very supportive and wanted students to succeed. The university always did it's best to accommodate all students especially with clinical rotations. If you hd a certain interest in something they did their best to help you get that experience. I would definitely recommend!"

Satisfied - 9/20/2017
Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2017
"I was in the online M.S. in Healthcare Management program. It was a great experience - very flexible, good professors, interesting classes - especially the ones taught by Professor F. It's an especially good program if you're interested in cost management and quality improvement. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about these areas without having to go to a classroom."

LisaMarie - 3/24/2017
Degree: Laboratory Technician
Graduation Year: 2013
"The MLS program at UMD greatly prepares and educates potential hospital lab employees. Because of the didactic instruction, many graduates pursue advanced degrees with the knowledge they've obtained through their undergraduate career. The science background obtained from this degree will help any future scientist or medical professional by providing a concrete understanding of the pathophysiology of the human body and current testing methods used to treat and diagnose various disease states."

Cheyenne Lantz - 3/23/2017
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"The University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, offered me a world-class education at an affordable price. I had the opportunity to work with professors who were alumni of prestigious Ivy League schools from a variety of backgrounds, and learn alongside my classmates who hailed from a variety of diverse backgrounds. I built meaningful relationships as a result of attending this school and garnered a wonderful education that has now lended me the opportunity to pursue my graduate degree at Boston University. I'm greatly indebted to my alma mater."
