Arizona State University Reviews

171 reviews
There is a vast spectrum of faculties in terms of their efficacy in transferring knowledge. While some professors are passionate about what they teach, some professors see classes as a burden to shake off their shoulders! ASU tries to represent a diverse set of students and faculties in their classes. However, this can be a double whammy! Some professors are not sufficiently proficient in speaking English- the language of communication in the university.
I will still like to emphasize that the professors are trying to explore new ways of effectively reaching out to students and making classes more involved. Professors like Dr. Theodore Pavlic adapted some salient techniques in his classes that offered students reasonable scope to understand, revisit, clarify , reclarify and apply difficult concepts taught at class with ease! A lot of professors are actively involved in exploring techniques to make the remote classes during COVID-19 more interactive.

When looking for online master's programs across multiple universities, ASU stood out as an incredibly flexible and affordable option. Before the COVID-19 pandemic that pushed most universities to focus on their online programs, ASU was already offering several master's degrees that could be earned via distance learning. I applied to the Master's of English Studies program in a little over 1.5 hours and received a call and several emails from a student advisor that was willing to answer all of my questions. She put me in touch with the English department and within just two weeks of application to the program, I had received my admission letter. I am set to begin my studies in a little less than a month and have already received a scholarship for working through the admission process and registering for my first class. As a high school teacher working with seniors, I will testify to my students that the application process does not have to cause major headaches. Check out ASU!
In terms of the intensity and depth of the topics cover in the classes, the faculties in my program does a good job! The quality of the course material is both rigorous and up-to-date.
There is sufficient opportunity to get involved with labs, center of excellence and entrepreneurship centers. The school has a very high research output and it involves a wide range of students in their research groups. Professors are passionate about their research work and everybody works very hard to earn the prestigious title of the 'most innovative school' of the nation!
There is a lot of interdisciplinary research and teams from different schools within ASU collaborate very well.
The Academic advising teams are well informed and helpful.
