Metropolitan State University - Minnesota Graduate Reviews

4 reviews
Metropolitan State University graduate school does not provide their graduate students the opportunities to use their thinking skills by challenging their professors when it comes to their feedback on the returned assignments. Some professors at the graduate level take students' questions as offensive and not allowed. They even go beyond that line and take graduate students' challenge questions as a threat and breach of title. Some of them even will tell you, "when you obtain your degree and title, you can do whatever you want. However, as long as you are a student, your ideas on changing our way of teaching you the "Metro Way" will not happen." Some even will turn against you if you take your issue to the dean. Also, if you think you will get a fair resolution by going to the dean, you are wrong. Also, some professors act as a group of wolves that will attack any student in their academic progression if he/she does not follow the professor's wishes.

There are many things that I have enjoyed about my experience at Metro State University (finishing my undergraduate degree for 3 semesters and the first 3 semesters of my graduate degree thus far). The professors at the school are absolutely phenomenal. They are always willing to work with students and are very knowledgeable about the subject matter. I enjoy the personal attention and more interactive learning that’s created by having smaller class sizes. The school offers many of its classes on a schedule that caters to nontraditional students.

One thing I would change is student involvement. Being that there is no on-campus housing, it’s easy for students to just go to class and leave without interacting too much with others on campus. I’m not sure of the best solution to this or if this is an issue with all non-traditional universities.
I am working on my second degree from this school and have attended classes here for a total of three and a half years. The instructors and staff are all very dedicated to the education of their students. And the instructors are experts in the areas they are teaching dedicating their time to educate the next generation in their fields.
