Felicia bucher - 4/29/2016
Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015
"The elementary education program at UNLV was a great start to my teaching career. I loved being inside the classroom for my practicum. It taught me almost all I need to know to get me started as a first year teacher. The only critique I have are the actual classes before your practicum. They're useless."

"My university (UNLV) is overall fairly excellent. The cost is reasonable, and the program is well structured. However, the support is somewhat lacking, and the program takes too long. There are very few financial support resources. The university has superior instructors, but the support from most of the faculty is not really there. There are a few members of faculty who were very supportive, but left. There are a few new members of faculty who are supportive. There is a great deal of turnover in my department, so that is not very beneficial to students. It is often difficult to take classes, because they are not offered when needed. However, the faculty tries to work with students to get them the classes they need, so that is super! There are many time constraints that could be addressed using technology, but I feel that UNLV has not fully embraced technological resources. Finding the right course at the right time in the right format is a challenge, but the professors do try to help. Finding a professor to work with on research is a real challenge. It would be nice if there were more opportunities to work with the professors on research to learn more research skills in the "field". I have had the opportunity to work with some of the professors on their research. However, it has been difficult, and I was not able to continue to publication with them. Publication is very important, yet there are no classes that one can take to help learn how to get published. It is one of those requirements that are not supported, and I feel the school could do a better job in this area. It would be nice if UNLV provided structured assistance for publication."

"I love that UNLV is always up and coming . The professors really care about your education and future, they are always available for advising . I cannot speak for all majors but mine was a small program of extremely qualified educators that truly loved what they do and were great at it. I feel I got the personal attention and encouragement I needed and overall got a great education !"

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2008
"There wasn't any real guidance through the college experience. There didn't seem to be anyone available for counseling or advice or to just check on you and see how everything was going. It seemed to be sink or swim and I don't think that I got my bang for my buck."

Danielle - 5/3/2015
Degree: Landscape Design
Graduation Year: 2015
"I attended the University of Nevada Las Vegas for a total of 7 years. A majority of the classes were intellectually challenging and creative. I had some fantastic teachers in my time in the sciences. The only issue I had was with certain tenured teachers in the math department. Make sure to look at rate my professor before choosing who your teacher will Be. Choosing UNLV as a school will be challenging at times, but it will grow you as a student and prepare you for what life outside of school is."

Genova - 3/16/2015
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2006
"UNLV was a great fit for my college experience. The campus was big, but easy to access. Class sizes were comparable to high school, so getting to know your professor was less of a barrier. When I entered into the Social Work program, everything was explained and I knew what to expect. I appreciated the friendly and knowledgeable professors. There are some that I am friends with to this day. Also, have a cohort to go on the journey of completing this program was helpful because we all got to know each other and you always had someone to talk to about what was going on because they were experiencing the same thing."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014
"While being a student at UNLV, it is beneficial to actually know what you want to do in your future and make sure no one is able to tell you that you "can't do it." Majority of the professors at this school don't really care about educating you but rather than how much they are getting paid because every professor at this school complains about how underpaid they are. Knowledge wise, I definitely did not feel like I got my money's worth and merely paid 20k for a piece of paper."

"I highly recommend the Higher Education program at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) to anyone looking to advance their career, or perhaps seeking a change in careers. The professors are well- experienced and truly dedicated to the success of every student."
