University of Utah Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (35)
The University of Utah's Psychology program is outstanding. The professors are knowledgeable and willing to help any student who is dedicated to advancing their academic career. Psychology is an extremely diverse degree. With an engineering degree, you become and engineer, a law degree you become lawyer, etc. With a psychology degree, you can pursue any number of career paths which is both exciting and daunting. This is why I highly recommend you rely on the support services of the U of U Academic Advisors and The Career Services Office. These highly trained professionals in will help accelerate your career after graduation.
The University of Utah had so many different types of programs to get involved with. The professors were absolutely wonderful and so were the advisors. Luckily, I knew exactly what I wanted to do but they were very helpful for my decisions. The school is also very into sports.
I loved studying at the University of Utah. The University offered a variety of courses within the different avenues of my degree. I chose to pursue an education with an emphasis in foreign relations and security focusing on political science. Not only was the education courses beneficial. I was able to network with an array of different people from different backgrounds. Many of the people I met at the university have become some of my best friends.
The advisor for the Film program did not review what types of classes would be helpful in pursuing a career. Yes, I new that this was a hard field to break into. I feel like the advisor should have directed me to more hands on classes instead of classes that were just about learning vocabulary and different genres. Although I enjoyed most of the classes I took, I was disappointed in the hands on experience. I also believe they should update their class descriptions. I took a class that was supposed to be about women in film. It ended up being a class about women who made films that were emphasizing sexual orientations. Although I have no qualms about lesbians, I did not want to watch a lesbian pornography, which is what I saw a lot of and was required to write about for my grade.
The University of Utah is a commuter school meaning people go to class then go straight home. Most students grew up in the local area. There are quite a few clubs and activities but if you're not involved and only go to class you might not feel like you're getting the real college experience. The only people who really live on campus in the dorms are freshman, mostly Asian due to recruiting and scholarships attracting them aimed at gaining more diversity. I enjoyed my major (mass communication) where classes are smaller and you have a better chance of getting to know others. In a way it felt like I was going back to high school once in my major because most of the classes weren't that tough. Other majors are tougher. Parking isn't great but there are buses and shuttles that can get you around. Expect to walk a lot. Lots of building construction in recent years including a $45M entrepreneur center that have improved the campus. Overall, I'm satisfied with the experience I had. My degree hasn't had much of an impact on my career it seems but at the same time a bachelor's is the minimum qualification for many jobs.
I loved my time at the University of Utah. I would say that the majority of the professors I had really showed a lot of care and experience in their teaching. I was involved in the Honors College, which I would recommend to anyone who qualifies. They offer smaller classes and an opportunity to do an undergraduate thesis alongside a professor.
The University of Utah is a top ranked institution in many programs in the U.S. The majority of professors are engaging and care about student success and learning. The curriculum prepares students for entering the work force and for moving on to graduate school.
I am attending the University of Utah. I am working through the accounting program there, and it has been of high quality. The teachers are great and the opportunities are endless. They strive to help every student have a career in their field by graduation.
The U is a great school if you really take advantage of what's available. Like any other college, the professors (especially as you get farther into the program of your choice) are top notch. Occasionally (mostly at the beginning) you'll find that many students aren't as engaged as you'd like. However, if you take advantage of the great professors and get involved in student groups, the U can really set you up for success.
The University of Utah is a great place to get a high quality education with very affordable tuition. The school is constantly building new facilities to better meet the needs of the students and has a large, beautiful campus. Many of the undergraduate and graduate programs are highly ranked nationally and it is a premier research university.
